Ok, you have his 8, 11yr old pics, so he must be 12....assuming the 11yr old pic was from last season. For that deer to get that old he has to have a very good sanctuary and good food.

Im pretty sure I wouldn't even eat that deer.

Yeah, he is jerkey on the hoof, just skin him.

Is he a visible buck or does nobody want to shoot him?

He was a junker 8pt that No one wanted to shoot until he was ten. He took a good jump and was a low 40s 8 then.. He hung with fiddy so I didn't shoot him and wouldn't let anyone else near that stand.
At the very end of season before last he came in with lowbeam and I shot lowbeam with a muzzle loader standing right beside him.
Last year he was a basic six at 11 and his pic is posted. I let southern camo hunt him. He came in with a deer o called passer and Justin slung an arrow through passer instead. The writeup is on here and there is a short video of this deer coming in with passer.

I have known him all his life on small free range property and its odd but I don't really want to kill him. He has been missing several days now but if and when he shows up again I will let someone shoot him. Otherwise the yotes will just eat him.

I sure hope he shows up when someone is there to take him...that dude is a genuine trophy for various reasons age alone makes him one to hang on the wall IMO

What blows my mind about his buck is I've read Steve hunts alot bordering NF. Think of all the hunters over the years this deer has dodged. To make it to 12 in east texas living partially on public land is amazing

This one doesn't go on public land but sure goes on several other private properties where deer get randomly shot.
