Size:  87.0 KB My buddy got a good one. I don't know if he bow shot it or killed it during MZL. Ill have to get up with him and find out.
Maybe I can talk him into putting me on to something decent but he's always worried Ill shoot a little one at his farm.
I probably would just to piss him off LOL.

Awesome antlers, and a drop tine. Well done, not a very big body though, not much meat on that one

Congrats to all those that have connected recently.

I haven't been able to get out much recently due to family health issues, but was able to get out some this past weekend.

11/12 First doe I put a hole in her heart and she maybe only made it 40yds. 30 minutes later a little 3pt comes in tracking the doe and beds down next to her body.

As I'm walking out I crest a hill. I can see across the field, past my truck, over the county road, and out into the next field I can see a buck and doe about 8-900 yds from me. I get back to my truck, unload my gun, go sign out of the area I was in and sign into the area I saw the buck and doe. Driving down the farm access road I stop, get out, load my gun. I had covered the distance to them and circled around to 80yds on their other side. They were to busy dealing with each other to worry about me. After I shot the doe the buck was clueless and to what he should do. He was a good 3.5yo looked like maybe a 7pt. He still hung out in the same area looking for her for 30 minutes even after I drug her out.

Last Saturday was productive on the spot that I hunt in Queen Anne’s. Had three young bucks in the field I was sharing with a friend. A monster walked out, but caught a whiff of me before he got in the shooting lane. Walked over towards my friend who had an excellent heart/lung shot at 30 yards. What a beauty. Should be a good couple of weeks coming up.

The friend is a veteran, what an excellent way to celebrate his day.

--That is a very interesting rack. Do the tiny points plus huge body indicate it had poor access to minerals/other nutrients? Or is that just genetics?

Excellent question, and I’m not quite sure what the answer would be. His grazing land was soybean and sunflower fields. Marshy. Plenty of salt licks and corn feeders.
