this is a small patch of timber that runs between two fields and has a creek. I never would have guessed the kind of deer that run through here.
And you just described a classic funnel..think about it, a small strip of timber that connects two feeding/bedding sources with water running through it to boot...that heffer has everything he needs and does not have to go far to get it...and thats how mature bucks operate, the less they have to travel and can do it in cover the longer they live...I'm guessing somewhere near-by is some thick cover and I'll be thats wher he calls home 50% of the time. Good luck next year, he'll be great! Thats another nice one in the video who will come into hsi own next year as well!
