Chased this guy around all day yesterday. He was having a stand off with a spike yesterday morning with several does watching the show and I didn't quite get the shot. This morning with the wind that suddenly came up around 7:00am, he just about ran me over. I am not sure how all the scoring stuff works, he has 3 on one side and 4 on the other if you follow what my old friend Fletcher use to say, "Can you hang a ring on it?". I quartered him up and packed him out with help from my good friend John. I took him to Jim the Butcher and what a great guy. Jim is the friendliest guy I've ever taken deer too. I get two Christmas cards a year and one of them is Jim. I don't have this buck on game cam, so he must be moving around with the rut. Lots of ticks on me and the deer and I'm sure the poison oak will be kicking in on Tuesday.
