Scouting Trip!!!!!

   Just got home from an evening glassing pf some fields I will be hunting this fall. I seen the 2nd biggest buck of my life in the wild tonight. I seen at least 3 others that would probably be in the 150" to 180" range. I am pumped. I will go back out to this place and place a camera and 2 stands. Hopefully we can catch these bucks in the early. I really hope to get some trail cam shots of these deer. You all won't believe your eyes. I didn't.

Just went in the area to look

Just went in the area to look for a stand site. I'm hoping to catch them in the early season. I know where they bed so I'm placing my stand between their beds and the bean fields in about a 30-40 yard funnel of trees. The trails are heavy in this area and I should be able to cover the entire funnel area. There is a nice large tree in the middle with heavy trails about 15-20 yards on each side of the tree. It also looks like I won't have to do much cutting. I'm just waiting for the next nice rain to place the stand.

Well, I got a big 10 point on

Well, I got a big 10 point on my video camera. He was probably around 160". Seen a nice 8 around 120"ish and several does. Did not get that huge one I seen Thursday night but I'm sure I will get him on camera soon. I will put a trail camera out there today. So hopefully in a couple of weeks I will be able to share all of the awesome pics with you guys.

Well, I got some video

Well, I got some video footage of the big guy. He looks like a huge 6x5 with a split brow on the left and a split G4 on the left. He's over 20"wide, his brow tines are at least 8"-10" inches. His G-2's looks to be well over 12" inches and his G3's are about the same. His G-4's are probably 8"-10" inches and the G-5 on the left looks to be about 7" inches. also a nice heavy rack. I hope I can get him. There was two other 10 points that were probably around 170". Any of these three deer would be awesome to get. But, you all know which one I want. I'm putting the trail cam out tomorrow.
