I have been watching this buck for the past 4 years trying to get him to full potential. I hunt a farm that there are no management practices in place. The area neighbors shoot deer for food and will shoot ANY deer. I don't blame them because that is how they live. I have killed numerous nice bucks over the past 12 years and that is with the neighbors hunting fence lines and borders.
I found these shed antlers from this buck that I could have harvested the last day of season because he had broken an extra tine off. Beings it was the last day I just knew he would be bigger and better this coming season. However after finding these sheds I think there is no way he is still alive.
These antlers were shed a week apart with this being first
This antler was shed or broke off 1 week later found within 100 yards of first antler
