Bone, you obviously know his area/home well and the deer there. Would you say he is the “man in charge” in that area or is he not the top of the pecking order

He has a harem.   There are other bucks in the area.   I haven’t seen any interaction.

Awesome :tup: :tup:   I love the cape on this buck and the rack is pretty good as well :chuckle:

   I would be curious to know how old this buck is. If I saw that 2016 pic I think many a hunter would have swore ( myself included) based on his headgear he was an old buck heading backwards, clearly not the case. Maybe he was wounded, or tough rut that prior winter. Would be fun to know an exact age if ever possible and educational as well. Regardless incredible animal. Thanks for sharing Bone.

With the drought year 2015 followed by the hard winter, it might make sense that he was down a little in 2016. Not knowing how old he is, he could have rutted really hard 2015 and struggled through the winter. Very glad he's still around, it's nice to see those big old survivors out kickin butt and taking names.

You can't forget this buck from year to year.  Glad to see he's still alive, very healthy, and posing for you.  Love that second photo.

Awesome he's still kicking and breeding!  You need to find a light colored Harpo and dark colored Chico.  You can ignore Zeppo.
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

I honestly don't have a clue.  Probably 9 or 10+

How close together have the spots you've seen him each year been?

Thanks for the consistent photos of great bucks. As a new hunter it's very cool to see what else is out there besides the dinky 3 point I shot this year.

He has a core area that’s pretty tight.
