This buck has been around our cams a few times since late November, after a bean field up the road was finally harvested, but he is always around at night.  Been seeing a lot of buzzards around, and seeing some 2.5 year old bucks around during daylight chasing does, so dunno if he is still walking or not.  He is a decent 8, but considering I am sure he is mature he is really not that great in the antlers. 

He is one I have been after, said if I was lucky enough to see him, he would make a much better cape for Catrina's old buck, and I would not have a problem donating the cape.  Have a couple weeks left, primarily focusing on hunting our standing beans, really need some hard freezing temps.  Figure this late in the year when they are usually run down he is still very heavy.  Think he is at least 4.5, probably easily over 225 on the hoof.  What do you all think?

I would think 3.5 to 4.5, I'm guessing the weight might be closer to 200, his neck definitely still looks rutted up and swollen.. makes his head/snout look fairly small. Good deer nonetheless.

This was the one my 13 year old killed Sunday afternoon. 

He was a pretty big boy, I did not look at his teeth, but asked the taxidermist to keep them.  I will report back after I get the teeth back.  I tried to weigh him but our gambrel scale did not want to cooperate and honestly was more concerned with getting him quartered and in the cooler.  Regardless of weight, I am pretty sure he was a mature deer.
