Check this brute out
I have a ton of trail cam pictures of this deer but am having a heck of a time seeing him during legal hunting hours. He showed up where my trail cam was one time during day light and I obvously was not there. I need some help and a few words of wisdom on how I should go about hunting such a deer. I think my buddy has seen him on hoof once on his hunting ground but he wasnt for sure. I hunt another area to the north of him. The only problem is that there is a big wooly lot in between us that we cannot hunt. Any tips or pointers would be appreciated. Also stories of past success are encouraging also. Thanks

First things first.....WOW, what a buck!!!

INVHO, the only way you are going to get on this guy is by catching him returning to his bedding area, or while chasing does during the rut. Deer don't get this big and old by being stupid.

Your pictures were taken at 4am, so let's assume he is on his way back to his bedding area. Got any ideas where that might be? If not, take the few clues you have and start thinking about where this guy is going to bed at.

If you know, or at least have a good feeling, see if there is a spot where you can slip in very close (pay close attention to your wind, he won't stand for much intrusion into his bedroom) with your trail cam to confirm. If you are able to pin point where he is bedding at, you might be able to get on this guy early in the season returning to his bed. Be very careful with playing with his bedding area. It will not take too many mistakes before this guy packs up and leaves and then you are going to have zero chance at him.

Other than that, find your does bedding areas and does preferred feeding areas and setup during the rut in pinch points and travel routes between the two. You might get lucky and catch this guy seeking.

Good luck and I really hope to see a nice harvest picture of this guy.

Unless he does something stupid during the rut KB got it right.This guy will be leaving his bed late in the PM and returning early AM.Slim to no chance you'll catch this guy while out feeding.You'll have to figure out a way to get as close as possible to his bedding area without him catching on to have any chance at all.Be sure to keep AM/PM air thermals in mind!!!I hope you can work it out.
Good luck!
