Well I managed to put it together and killed my number one prospect. Went out this afternoon, got in my stand and before I had my crossbow pulled up this guy ran a doe right up behind my tree. He stayed behind me for over an hour grunting and following that doe back and forth behind me. My stand is in a big cedar tree on the edge of a CRP field so I can only shoot out in front.

Just before sunset the doe ran out into the CRP to my left with him hot on her tail. Managed to get them stopped and took the shot. He went about 60 yards and piled up.

Yes, for some reason night pics of hard horned deer makes their antlers appear thinner than what they really are. Maybe it's just the brand cameras I use. Even the daylight pics don't show the mass.

Here's a few daylight pics.

Congrats 12! I bet that was torture with him behind you for that long. Your patience paid off.

I always like looking at your trail cam pics and kill pics. You always have some nice ones. Congrats again.

Good work and congrats. It can be tough this time of year when they are tending does. It was really good early but it has been slow for us the last week or so.

Awesome buck. Man with that left g3 split / doubled at the base he looks a lot like the buck i plan on going after this year, but bigger. Even has the slightly bladed right g2 the same, though it doesnt show well in these pics here. Made me think of this guy the second i saw it.
