This Season's Potential Target...

A nice buck seen several times on my uncle's trail cam. First picture is about a month ago, second is current.
Any guesses on measurements?

Hard to say from that angle, but definately well past the ears. It's a shooter.

I think this is "THE ONE" that Brian has been saving up his buck luck for. 11 points should do!

I'm quite sure I burned my "buck luck" last year.

I've got another 20 years or so before I get another.

Beware when hunting that guy, make sure you shoot him before he shoots you with those death rays from his eyes!

I wish I had easier access to whitetails, mulies don't taste as good...

Why do I even look at these things??

By now you'd think I'd know to take note of where the pictures are from and then AVOID looking at anything from north of the FL/GA line.

If I see that thing on our place here in FL I'll just roll over and go back to sleep...........because it will be a DREAM!!!

Good luck getting him. That is going to be a nice deer.

Nice wide rack. I'm guessing he'd score in the 140's.

Good looking donkey. Hard to tell from the pics but he still looks young. Wouldn't matter though, he's a shooter for sure. Good luck getting him.

Man I'm ready to sit a spell.

Older deer that's for sure. He has a fat belly, and a sloped back. I would bet a 100 dollar bill he wouldnt break 140. Still a shooter at any rate.

Being as you are pretty far north, the deer's body size should be fairly large.

I would say between 135 and 140 gross. Good width and mass, not much tine length.
