Is it the angle, my imagination, or is this a decent size 8? First glance got my attention. [Linked Image]

Really nice 8!


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I agree with everyone so far.
Cant see all the surrounding area of you setup but it looks similar to some of ours. Feeder in the open but close to very thick cover. You also have a road close by to corn. If theres more cover the other direction it would be real good. Sorry if thats off topic but I know a lot of folks like a lot more cover around feeder so thought it noteworthy.


At some point in life its time to quit chasing the pot of gold and just enjoy the rainbow. FR

Nice 8. If it is the same one, it looks like it lost its velvet in that 6 day period of your pictures.

Just went to check pig traps and saw him in the flesh. Different deer. He is purty.

2 different 8s!

If dates on cameras are correct then the 2nd one you posted was nearly a week earlier than the first and he has more bone.
He also has beams than turned inward at the end more and the 1st pic that 8's beams turn up and inward.
