He said he was surprised to see a buck like this on camera where he hunts. With no record of him before, would you chance passing him and not seeing him, or take him now? And I mean no offense by this, I'm just curious. It seems i always have a few good bucks show up unannounced like this each year and I've never considered passing one just because of the fact they showed up all of a sudden and they werent regulars to the area. Again, I'm just looking for your opinion. Not disagreeing with you just looking for insight.
