I saw him the first 3 days of season, morning and evening. My two boys were coming home from Tech Friday to hunt the weekend. I figured 3 days in a row, surely one of them would get a shot at him. Nope, never saw him again, just disappeared. I've done this same thing in the past, pass them up and hope one of the boys gets him and it has never worked out, guess I'm a slow learner! If you get a shot at a truly large buck you better take it because chances are you may never see him again.

Looks like his brother or offspring. Both super nice. Hope you or your boys get him next year

Nah, just a good dad. Don't sweat it. You got a great buck. Maybe he'll be around next season.

Those genetics may be narrow, but no bigger part than width plays on score, they make up a lot on MB length and tine length. Cool bucks!

Nice thought, but it seldom works out.

Dude, that's not a deer. That's a hog with big antlers.

"If you get a shot at a truly large buck you better take it because chances are you may never see him again."

I agree with this. Amazing how that can happen.

Good for you for holding out for your boys, he'd have been mighty tempting. Looks like you took a nice one as a consolation, must be a dominant genetic out there. Those main beams nearly touch.

I passed one as well in November in hopes that a buddy who'd never shot a big boy would get him. But, he wasn't near as nice as yours. bolt
