Good find! Especially since you already have his sheds from previous years. He'll be a heck of a buck..Good luck finding the other side!

Nice find that makes me wanta get out and get'em 2.I was curious if you have a pretty balanced Buck / Doe ratio . I read that in a balanced herd all does will be bred on the 1 st. cycle .So in turn the bucks testosterone level will drop sooner since there are no does left 2 breed Which will cause antlers to drop .And on the other side in an un-balanced herd where the bucks have more does to breed later there testosterone levels will stay higher, longer which will cause them to drop later. You or anyone ever heard this b4 ?

Congrats! Looks like a sweet buck... gonna be a tank next year.

Checking cameras today....

A friend emailed me with pics last night of a 3 year old that dropped in the past 48hrs. I would imagine he will have both in hand by the end of the day! He knows where the buck typically beds/feeds
