Default Good CT. 8 pt. Showing up.

Been getting quite a few pictures of this decent 8pt. showing up. Got several daylight shots also. Should be starting to shed its velvet any day now. Hope it hangs around after it sheds.

Rutt, where in the country are you at? That bucks got an old warrior face but the body of a youngling! No swayed back, no "beer belly", no bulldog stance, just flat out like a sleek 2.5-3 year old. But that muzzle is one of a 4.5-5.5 year old!

Nice 8! How far do you have the trail cam up the tree?

Great CT buck.. hopefully you can put an arrow in him on the 15th and maybe he'll still be in velvet! that would be nice. I was fortunate enough last year to get a good one in velvet in CT.

Not too shabby for sure. I hunt public land exclusively and I wouldn't even think of letting this guy pass.

I've noticed that to about it. I've got pictures of it from last year to. I'm located in CT.

I've got the camera situated about 8 feet up the tree, but this buck still picked up the camera. No matter though, as it still comes around.

Wont be able to arrow it in velvet. Just came out as of the 4th. I got a video of it destroying a small tree. Absolutely just ripping it to shreds. Here it is out of velvet.
