pope and young lead
Incredibly, I just got a lead on a book class P&Y buck on public land near my home. Guy had deer cam photos and no reservations on sharing them and the location. Course, if he told me, he may have told others. But typically, I bowhunt the area harder than most guys.
The earliest the buck showed up was 8:40PM, way after dark. Still in velvet, and NO pressure. By Oct/Nov, this deer will be the DEFINITION of nocturnal.
If he survives gun hunts and vehicles 'till rut (Jan) maybe I'll see him.
