Amazing buck for sure! Plz post pics to this thread once he starts back in velvet as I’d love to see him next year. You are a heck of a guy to let that guy walk....much respect.

I've caught some grief by relatives about not shooting him. The best reactions have been from my nephews. The 10 year old kept saying "he is going to be a MONSTER" and this is from the kid that doesn't hunt much. His brother who is 16 keeps asking for new pictures and says I should have shot him.

Headed down the first weekend in February to check things out. Hopefully he has eaten that entire pile of cottonseed and is in good health

I have always heard that we had the potential to get some big guys. Although I still question rolling the dice (especially after the cotton seed pictures), we are moving our place in the right direction. And we will hopefully see more deer like him in the next several years

Well you can’t kill monsters if you kill them when they are big right? Hopefully he is still around next year for you.

Where you’re located, hunting the Edwards Plateau hill country deer, he could be a bit older than what you think. Age is just a guess at best when we don’t know exactly when the deer was born. I hunt a little west of you and bucks still confuse me after hunting there all my life. I killed a buck this year I watched for the last 4 years, dad and brother said 5.5-6.5 by what his body showed, teeth showed he was definitely older 7.5-8.5.

Hope he is still around come October and you get him, beautiful deer.

I think he is 3.5-4.5 in 2 more years he will be an absolute giant. Letting him walk is worth the risk cause the reward will be so much better if you get him after letting him grow to full potential.

He lives!!!!!!
We had pictures of him right before turkey season with his head gear in one protein pen. We looked near that pen but never found his sheds. Of course the grass was already thick when he dropped

Well he has moved to a different pen and seems to be taking up residence. These photos are from earlier this month

I think this may be him back in 2015. He was only around at the start of the season in 2015. Think I saw him twice. I named this deer “picket fence” because of his side profile.
We are excited to watch him grow. We will have to wait and see if he gets a pass this year. As I get more pictures I will add them here

I’ll dig back through the few pictures from 2015. But I don’t have many game cam pics of him. I stumbled on this one. It was in a folder buried inside another folder

I think I only had 3 pictures that were saved. I’ll post what I have and see if you pick something out. I know you can track them over the years a lot better than most of us

Marco,
This is the only other picture I can find. And of course it doesn't show the tail very well.

We focused our search for his sheds in one part of the lease. The protein pen he is eating out of now is closer to the stand where I first saw him last year. The pen and my feeder are right in the middle of the lease. I wouldn't be surprised if he is hanging out real close to our camp.

Kinda conflicting but we’ll work with what we’ve got...

Forehead looks pretty darn close.

Tail looks different... could be angle.

Given how exceptional a deer he is, and how rare a deer like that probably is in the area...

And how big and young the first pic is...

I don’t have a big prob calling him the same deer... and 2 in 2015 and 4 in 2017

Wish we had more info on those early pics to tell if it’s the same buck... but point angle... shorter 2’s than 3’s... look the same

And that inner beam ridge... at so young an age makes me feel like the mass is coming... as it did in last years pics...

Thanks Marco
I had a sneaky suspicion they may be the same. They act the same. The deer in 2015 was only seen the first couple weekends of the season. When I saw him in 15 he ate at the feeder for a couple minutes and was gone. That was the photo on the right side of the feeder. In 2017 that deer was seen for 2 maybe 3 weekends and never at the feeder.
In 18 he appeared at thanksgiving but was never had a pattern.

So I guess this year he will be 6.5. He will probably be on the hit list. It will be really hard to convince everyone to not shoot him. Although he doesn’t seem to pattern through the year he has been at 3 different stands over the years. And 2 of them are mine

His black hocks scream older last year too.. confounding buck to be sure.

That tail thing has me head scratching. Might check eartips.. 15 has black backed eartips can’t tell about front.... 18 has black fronted tips.. but can’t tell about back. but tail and forehead very distinctive. Both have a distinctive black neck stripe.

Went and filled feeders yesterday. To say they are hungry right now is an understatement
The one protein pen where he is been staying my buddy forgot to turn on the game camera when he changed cards last trip
So I figured we wouldn’t have picture of him this trip. We think the seed ran out and he went to another pen, where we last saw him hard antlered this spring
These aren’t the best pictures but this is what I was sent

Got a couple other ones we want to watch finish out too
The first on is “high yellow” because he had real yellow antlers the first year. Been watching him for several years too. And then a couple other decent guys hitting the feeders. We are headed back in two weeks to fill again. So hopefully will have some more updates

We went Friday to check on things and top off cotton seed.
He is still eating and growing. Had pictures of him 3 different nights out of 2 weeks. Think he moved back to a different feeder, which I haven’t gotten the pictures of yet
