Got a good one

So for the last month I have been hunting a buck on our club here in Florida. He is unique as they all are. When he was a fawn someone picked him up thinking it’s mom wasn’t around. Usually,  this is not the case.  Many fawns are “rescued” from perfectly good doe moms. Anyway, they put a collar on this fawn and at a year and half old he runs off to be the wild buck that he is. The buck lives on our club. Last year he was a respectable 8 point. Seen on occasion and on trail cameras. I knew that this year he would be a good buck. And we were also concerned about his collar. I decided that I would hunt him and try to take him before that collar got too tight on his rut neck. Took a month of frustration but I finally got him today. Great deer but a shame. Finally got that collar off.

    That’s great man congrats! I’m hoping to actually get in a stand with my bow next week for the first time this year. Normally I’ve spent a few weeks at it by now.

    nice!

    and good deal on helping him out... so to speak.
    I am glad to only be a bird hunter with bird dogs...being a shooter or dog handler or whatever other niche exists to separate appears to generate far too much about which to worry.

    Nice Buck!
