This one had my hunting partner hunting all day, for the rest of the season. This 26 in.(appx) chocolate-horned 10-pointer left us with about 10 different photos and a broken heart.

Got any vanishing dream deer?

We had a 10pt last year. He was there before the season and then vanished. I'll look for the pic.

Worth waiting for that one.

I had many deer never been seen and have a few pictures of them.

We had one in particular that disappeared after having him on camera for like two weeks in a row in November of 2010. Didn't get a picture of him or was seen until last weekend. He was killed last week as a 7.5 deer 6 miles away!!! from where we got the pictures in 2010.

Yep!

This was the only day he showed up that year.
I had quite a few pictures of him the previous year when he wasn't nearly as big.
I never got another picture of him.

I guess we can only hope that they passed their genes around before disappearing:)).

Yes, biggest buck I've ever seen was on the side of the road off 35 next to the Aransas Wildlife Refuge. My heart skipped a beat when he picked his head up. I went back later that night but he was gone & never saw him again. frown

I only got one picture of this deer. And he by far not the biggest I have seen on our ranch. But there is just something about him that drives me crazy about Big 8's. I love to see what he would look like hanging on my wall!!!

Great tall 8 with good mass, he'd of looked great on the wall. Hopefully he or his offspring are alive and kicking.

This one still haunts me. I watched him for an hour thanksgiving evening of 2009. I was bowhunting and he never came in range, and he was never seen again.

yes, i love the cameras, they keep you from taking younger bucks too.

and i am sure he would appreciate all the compliments but yall know its just salt on my ever widening wound right? lol....he is the greatest buck i have ever had the chance to hunt, and its not even close.

good luck to all of u guys, may xmas bring an "in range" view of these guys one more time...

Just goes to show you how they got to be that big. Smarter than you might think.

Here's the one I always think about. Was using a cheap camera then so the pics aren't great but you can tell how big he is. Main frame 10 with double split G2's and huge brow tines. Never seen him again....
