Had this feller on camera when we got up to the property this weekend. Where we hunt (Necedah) coupled with the pressure from the surrounding properties (who shoot anything that moves), this isn't a bad buck (for us). We're not the Drury's or Lakoski's and we don't have the choices to pass up or to shoot 3, 4 or 5 year old deer. It just doesn't work like that on heavily hunted properties around us and lower deer densities like we see. That stuff looks good for selling DVD's from 1,000 acre managed deer farms in Iowa, but it's not real life where most of us hunt in Central Wisconsin.
P.S. After the close up, who wants to bet that buck was bouncing off of trees and tripping over stumps until his eyesight came back??? HAHAHA
