Unfortunately, due to car shopping all day on Saturday I only made it out to hunt 1 day this weekend. And to top it all off, I didn't see a single deer all day long! But, I collected the memory card from the Bushnell and finally got another picture sequence of this buck. If you remember, this is the buck from my "Target Acquired" thread a couple months ago. To date, this is only the second set of pictures I've gotten of this buck. He seems to be very reclusive, but I'm happy to see him caught in daylight.

Here are a couple pics from the first time I got him on camera...

In the infrared pics, it's easy to see his forked right brow tine... but I can't see it in the most recent pics... Hopefully he didn't break it off! Either way, this deer is an absolute beast and I'm pretty excited to get some more pics of him.

To be continued... (I hope)

I know how you feel about not seeing any deer lol. Been there for a long time myself.

That buck is a hawg and looks like he will top 220lbs. dressed out. Nice rack as well. Would be a very nice one to sling an arrow at thats for sure.

Good luck with him buddy. I hope he stays with the daytime outtings and you get a chance at him.

Unfortunately I won't be doing any hunting this coming weekend... :( I'll be in Michigan with the wife from Wednesday to Saturday. There are a few nice ones runnin around down there, though, so you may be able to get a crack at one. The rub and scrape activity has really picked up the past week or so!

LOL... You can hunt wherever you want to, brother! Actually I haven't hunted up top at all this season. I've been trying to stay on Gary's side of the property as much as I can. It's been ok, but the deer sightings just aren't like they are up in that hay field. Jerod and I hunted about 80 yds apart yesterday evening... covered that ridge top pretty good and never saw a deer. I think it's about to bust loose this week when those temps drop. Good luck down there if you go out!!!

Are you gonna at least make it down there for gun season? I was just looking at those pics and realized it looks like he is all bristled up and posturing?

Man that is a toad of a buck! HE needs to go on a diet, a very sharp arrow filled diet!
Agreed!

Now that you mention it, it does kind of look like he's posturing up. I was wondering all along why his ears were laid back like that... and why he was heading in that direction at that time of day... that makes a lot of sense, Jake. I might make it down there for the weekend of gun season, and definitely for the extended weekend. Last year the deer went hardcore nocturnal after the gun seasons, so I'm not too excited about it. I wish I could start November all over and do it again!
