Only mature buck so far on TC but I am not putting him #1 yet due to knowing what can show up later in Oct into Nov.
Is that the new sheriff?
Don't know much about him but he could be. He showed up one night at two different feeders. Ate corn and protein like he had been here before then never showed back up since. I have not looked back at old pics to see if he was here in the past few years are not, but I have an idea which buck he could be. I am hoping he kept growing and made a full 5x5 with two kickers. Mid November usually is the date a lot of new bucks show up. With all the rain this year another "Sheriff" could show up that is even bigger.
I was just looking at a pic of the Sheriff and they definitely have some similar characteristics. Beautiful deer either way.
That long browtine and tall tined 8 point is a common genetic look where I am at. I need better pics of this buck from this year to tell if he is a nice 8 point from last year that disappeared at the end of the year. He was similar looking to this buck.
