We have been after this buck for the entire archery season and the entire rifle season but never saw him. We have more pictures than I can count and lots of video clips of him but absolutely nothing in the day time he has been entirely nocturnal, not one of the 5 game cameras we had out ever caught him in the daytime. My son, daughter, bother-in-law, and I have literally 100's of hours in the stand hoping to see this guy.
Opener of muzzleloader found me back on his turf, just couldn't give up on him when I still had a tag in my pocket. 1 hour into the sit and guess who showed up, yep the 14 point, heavy beamed buck we all dreamed of tagging. He doesn't score well but he has great character and good mass all the way through his rack.
