Big 9 Down

Well after watching this buck all summer and following his every move around the ranch I finally caught up to him. A long story short the hunt Saturday night in the pouring rain, on the ground because my wife wanted to go, and a panther at 10 yds was my most memorable hunt ever. With the lightening cracking all around us I never thought we would have much action. Well at about 7:30 the rain let up and this guy decided to show up...very cautiously.

He came in at 110 3/8

    DYING for me was the most HE could do. LIVING for HIM is the least I can do

    yeah we had to gut him and put him in the cooler over night so we could get some pictures. It was dark and raining when we found him. I thought his rack would make a good set of rattling! He's heading to the taxidermist.

    I will say that south florida deer are by far and away the most photogenic of all the whitetail anywhere.

    Congrats on an awesome deer.

    swamp donkey for sure.

    Yeah South Florida deer are photogenic. For a deer to mature down here, he has to be the bull of the woods.
