Default New Target Acquired!

Originally I was going to hunt this 6.5 yr old buck.

After the latest batch of TC pics we found a buck that we hadnít seen all summer/fall who is 9.5 this year. Iím going to shift my hunting attempts to him and give the 6.5 another year or two. Still donít have great pics of him but he is old and heavy!

The one in back left we are going to try and catch and put in DMP pen. 6.5 yr old. The other one I think is 5.5. Going to be really special in a year or two. Already a great buck but needs a bit more age.

Chasing a 9.5 yr old buck is an exciting and challenging task no matter what the head gear looks like. A deer of this caliber just makes it that much better. Good luck sir, looking forward to LDPs!

I agree. I thought this deer died this summer. We found his sheds last spring but nobody had laid eyes on him till this last week of pictures. I would much prefer hunting a 9.5 yr old over a 6.5 yr old. He tends to hang in one portion of the ranch so I am confident I can get on him if I get the right wind!

Hunting to commence on 11/8/19. Will report back!

You are right, if we can get the deer in the way back with 20 does into a DMP pen, the future looks bright! I want lots of his babies running around.

We want him to have 20 baby mommas this year (the big deer in the background of picture #1). Yes we are high fence.

Not a whole lot of life left for a 9.5 yr old buck. May as well enjoy hunting him.

Looks like they all have awesome character. The 9.5 and 6.5 also look somewhat similar with the way the main beams go way up. Any chance the 6.5 is offspring or do y’all know his lineage?

I don't know but I don't think the 9.5 year old is the father of the 6.5 yr old. That being said, they could absolutely be related and may have been sired by the same mother/father. They do look a good bit alike.

That being said, the 9.5 didn't used to go way up like that. He used to be wider and more typical. His rack has gone down hill over the last couple of years. I like the way it looks this year and hope to lay hands on it when it is all said and done.
