Yesterday, finally my buddy caught up to one we've got a history with, and been after for two years. No trail cam pics of him this summer and we wondered what may have happened to him. At 8:30 I heard the boom and got a text "It's him." I about ran out of the stand. So happy for him.
His 2013 shed. Can't be 100% positive here but it's very unique and was within 300 yards of cam pic and where he was shot. Base is over 5 inches.

I would guess the deer was 100-110 pounds. It certainly challenges the idea of older bucks and their sagging stomachs. Nice easy drag. I am amazed the hunters that this buck has eluded over the years.
btw - since I got crap from the tagging police for last year's tagging job via PMs, WCO was there for this one.
