Sweated in a blind for 2 hours yesterday to get a pic of this buck. 100% native but its a high fence so some will still say hes a fake deer

Still in velvet huh? All the deer I have seen in the past week or two are all hard horned. He looks to be getting close. Beauty for sure!!

His velvet was cracking and beginning to bleed. I bet hes rubbed out by today or tomorrow.

Going to give him another year. Unfortunately a lot of our bucks peak and 6 and go down at 7 then get bigger at 8. Well see what he does.

That's interesting...any clue as to what would attribute to a loss at 7 with conditions / groceries being equal??

It's a beautiful deer and it's not about it being fake it's about it no being fair chase , when your deer cannot leave YOUR property and get shot on your neighbors land then it's not considered free range fair chase ....
