A little history. I've watched this buck and have pics since 2013 and maybe even before but that was the first year he had a noticeable characteristic rack on him. Every year except this one he has been a slick 8. I've drawn my bow on him several times just for practicing drawing. He came to my feeder almost every time it went off until last year. This year I finally decided i was going to take him if the shot presented itself and I did just that on Saturday. I've been trying to get my 6 year old his first deer but he grunted this one in (He blows that grunt call a lot!) and it all happened so fast it was either I shoot it or he was gone. 40 yards as he was running out of my range of view and the 143 ELD-X dropped him like a rock. The pics below are 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019 in velvet and the dead pics.

great buck! I bet it's fun to be able to watch a deer year after year like that. I haven't had cameras until this year so hopefully I can have a similar story in a couple years.

See how his G2s slightly curve back and his G3s slightly curve forward. He's had that characteristic every year. He just added a little 9th point and a nub this year.
