Spotted a huge buck tonight...

My son and I went deer spotting after supper tonight. We saw in total about 40 deer. Mostly does, but we did see about 5 bucks. One deer in particular, had a rack that was probably the largest I've ever seen outside of the Hamburg Cabelas Hall of Deer Heads(what I affectionately call their room full of deer mounts). I had to do a double take when I first lit it up. I thought I was looking at an Elk(joking).....It was at least a ten or twelve point, but its rack stood at least 20 to 24 inches (or so it seemed) tall. I wish we could've gotten a picture, but when my son tried the thing moved and it came out very blurry. Oddly enough we only saw three deer at the property where we hunt. The rest were in farm fields along the way there. We also saw two foxes, a raccoon, and an O'possum. A very exciting night to say the least.

I saw a very, very big buck on the way home from work today. Unfortunately, I was on a busy road and couldn't stop and glass, but I had absolutely no issues seeing his antlers from ~400 yards away. He also had that unmistakable dark body color that all mature buck seem to have.
