I received this photo two days ago. My friend who let me hunt his land this year, got it from his neighbors' cell phone. He works in automotive. He saw one of his neighbors while working. Don't know how they got on the subject of deer. His neighbor said he shot this deer mid December, from his back porch. Turns out his house is maybe 500 yds from my stand sites. My buddy almost ran this deer over with his car last year. And had me pumped up about the area talking about it and another. I had a great time trying for bubba this year. But, realize now I prolly pushed deer into the thick stuff behind the dudes house. LOL I saw some nice deer, but nothing like this! I never got a pic of him either. The good thing is, turns out all of us, including his neighbor, have seen another bruiser with more mass, but less points. Last spotted by my buds girlfriend last week. So, my three year plan is still in effect! I learned a great deal this year about the area. So, maybe I will be posting pics of MY deer next year. ;) IF NOT maybe more of this guys! Dude invited us to go see it at taxidermist. I think it looks over 150 typical, maybe more because of length.
