Hey y'all,
Have this guy showing up on trail cam's in an oak bottom funnel I hunt the last two weekends. Only on camera at night, but moving up and down the trail and dropping in on the feeder pen. Definitely the best buck we've had on camera on the lease in 2.5 seasons (Caldwell Co.). Thoughts on age and score from these pics? Left side looks to be weak or broken off. Any input on anything you can do to bust a "nocturnal" buck?









Was in a stand that over looks the feeder Thurs - Sun. Never saw him, but he was on camera in there around midnight twice during that time.
Thanks y'all.

Your gonna have to be in your stand during rut time... When he's thinking with the wrong head. He won't change that pattern until something happens.

Yeah, we've been calling him a 7. Call it like you see it. Just wishing that he hadn't broken that tine off I guess.

Top wire is about 4.5' to 5'. The bottom of the feeder barrel is about 5.5'.
