Just a couple of days after taking this giant I was contacted by another hunter who found out about it and apparently had been after this deer. Hunting over a half mile away, he had been capturing regular images of this deer on his trail camera – right up until the day before he found his way over to my stand.
There were pictures showing him in velvet…
The same hunter had seen this deer the previous year and had more pictures from then showing just how much more he grew in a single season.
I am always fascinated to find out where these deer have been and how far they might travel on any given day. It is always a mystery figuring out how these big deer operate, where they move, when they move, how far and why.
