Thats a good deer for that area, spent many days in a stand there it can be tough, I remember a lot not seeing a single deer.

I saw the buck at the check station. It was 22 1/4" inside spread. They aged the buck at 6.5+ years old. I have pics but don't feel right about posting on the internet without the hunters permission.

Myself, I struck out. I saw alot of deer and had plenty of shot opportunities, just not on shooter bucks. The deer really moved good all week. I had one shooter at 25 yards but no clear shooting lane. It was a real nice 8 with tall heavy tines and about 17 to 18 inches wide. Dark chocolate antlers, very nice rack. Almost, oh well. I do love hunting Gus.

I saw a huge deer like that many years ago on a youth mgmt hunt. I told the biologist about it as the deer was very dark and looked ancient. That area is so thick deer can hide right in front of you.

I’ll be there the next few days 12-16 Nov. My son and I were lucky enough to be drawn. Any recommendations on compartments. I’ve got a few favorites after the youth doe hunt my son went on and an earlier scouting trip.
