Target numero UNO.. again..

We have quite the history with this deer.. Literally thousands of pics, but have only seen him for a split second 3 years ago. Neighbors have shared pics of this deer from 2009, but i'll let this group take a stab at age.
He's become more predictable this summer, so hopefully we will get him next Saturday.





Last year


Two years ago

Well, since he opened his mouth in pic 2 to show us he has no teeth, I'm going to say 7.5 to 8.5. Good luck in your pursuit of the ol' gray ghost!

I guessing 6-7. However in my own little world 6 and over are all about the same. You hit mature then old the fossil. This one looks old but not quite petrified yet.

He's old no doubt. And smart according to your history. Sounds like he has patterned the hunters.

It might end up being a picture album of the grey ghost in the end, which is still really cool.

Good luck this season. up

The grey ghost. I like the sound of that. No doubt he's had us patterened for years, and although i've tried going in early, or alt routes, still no luck. He's been feeding every day this summer for about an hour in the morning, so i know where i'll be on the 27th.
Based on our records, he's no younger than 7 this year, but I 99% sure he's 8.

Hopefully my next topic will be the "story of the grey ghost" with a picture of the both of us.

I'd agree. I like him as a 6. Not a monster by any means, just one we've wanted to take out for a while, but he's pretty dang smart.

We had 2 big 6's last year we wanted to shoot neither was seen all season long in person or camera. We have a big 6/maybe7 if the crab claw grows enough that was a big 4pt last year. He is on the list to get his card punched, but we will have to wait and see if he shows.

Well, the other deer have shown up like clockwork, but no sign of the old man. Load up on popcorn, could be another long season looking for this guy.
