    I set this camera out on public land before the beginning of rifle season. And then I promptly forgot about it. I was in for a surprise when I went and got it today. IMG_4546.jpg IMG_4545.jpg

    Yeah! I had one cheap camera laying around from when I was in high school and I found this public land near my house and thinking my camera would get stolen, I put that one out there.

    Nope. Not honestly sure what it is. I just threw the camera up Willy nilly where it looked like a fallen log would force the deer to come to a choke point.

    After. That camera doesn't record the date and time group, so by going back through the pictures I can trace it back to at least six days ago. Just by seeing periods of light and dark in the pictures.

    I'd say he's a pretty nice buck, but prob not a booner...... I don't think that'd stop me from wanting to kill him though. :D

    Oh I'd love to kill him. May be the biggest deer I got on cam this year.

    I'd sure throw a broadhead at him, or a hunk of lead for that matter.

    A stud mature deer would be my guess. A booner I wouldn't think. 02

    I'd say close to a booner, he has some killer brows and mass, and pretty good tine length. I'd say for sure Mo big bucks.

    Yeah he is a giant 8pt with huge brows. Only thing that keeps him from being a booner is g3's

    He is big for sure, and I would shoot him every year! however, that is the angle that really exaggerates the size.
