Default Old Bruiser Down! (Angelina Co.)

Iíve had 6 years of history with this buck, he put his right eye out fighting in 2015 so itís always been easy to identify, even post shedding. Itís been a long game of cat and mouse, heís slipped past me about 3-4 times over the years with a bow in my hand, but I finally got it done this morning (with the rifle). 8.5 years old, and was developing a pretty severe cataract in his ďgoodĒ eye, so Iím not sure how much longer he would have made it. A true blessing of a harvest and huge monkey off my back!

Heís as good as heís ever been this year. This year is also the first time heís ever put on the split G2. He was probably this big in 2018 also, but had down years (by about 8 inches) in 2017 and 2019. Was a lot of fun to follow over the years, I have 2 sets of his sheds as well.

Good deal thanks for the info. My last place I had for years and one of the best parts was following a good deer for years. Sometimes I wouldnít see them until the day they got shot just knew they existed because of the cameras. Other deer were like clockwork every day.
