    First find on the farm. Was blowing out fire lines and took a short cut back to the gas tank thru an area where I thought bucks bed. Found the matched set of my big 12pt, and another nice half. Had pics of him all summer, fall and winter. Fighting thru mid Jan.

    I get 95% pics at night, which I know means I need habitat improvement. But these were 200y from the couple of cams I get him on. Nocturnal maybe. Saw his one brow disappear mid Nov. I think he’s young in 2017.

    Dang, them squirrels are hard them!!!!!

    Mainframe 12, WOW!!!! How old you think he will be this year? My wild guess would be 5.5, and while he is nice, hopefully he takes a big jump for you! Good luck, nice to know there is a mature one to target!!

    I was thinking possibly 3.5 this past fall or 4.5. I’ve got a bunch of pics of him and another 11pt that I think was a bit bigger. Def bigger body wise. Maybe that’s why I was thinking 3.5. No sign of the 11pt since mid Oct.

    He is a stud and if he was 3.5 this past fall, he will make a big jump this year.
