    Wow, it looks like he's inside your fence - is he your pet? Seriously, I think a buck like that is pretty rare, right? Tough to make it to that maturity level. Beautiful non-typical rack.

    Them there deer are full of TICKS!!! So be carefull one of those ticks don't jump off the deer and bite you. You can get LYMES DESEASE and end up eating ammoxicillian like candy for the rest of your life.

    lymes desease=fubared 4 life.
    nothing to mess around with.

    I am down that road, almost at the end of it, so heed my warning.

    Great pics of some wonderfully yummy jerky....I, I, I mean deer. :shut:

    I have had a couple of monsters, that were local legends that USED to frequent my back yard often. Personally, I leave them alone. Unless a mount is wanted, think of the blood line those babys are leaving.

    Whoa! We have deer pass through our yard many times but nothing like that! But we have had 3 fawns born in our yard. The last one about 10' from the kitchen window!!

    So,

    Does seeing something like this in range make you wish you had the Harmon 300 TL with the steak cooker in the top lid?

    Great shots!

    nice pics, nice animal.

    I called a Grey fox up to my front door the other night! It was not shy in looking for those fox baby whining sounds it heard.

    I should put my fox mount out there as a decoy to see what it does. Next time I will try to get some pics.

    I was thinking the same thing. I've never seen a muley with antlers quite like that. Great pics.

    Thanks guys, yeah ive seen this buck before. He is a wise one as he lives in town.
    There is another monster buck that hangs out once in a while.
    I used to hunt them, anymore i really enjoy shooting them with a camera.
    Here are some moose the wife and i like to watch. They are about 40 miles from us in the
    snowy range mountains.
