Default Dad's shotgun buck

My dad shot this buck during the first day of shotgun hunt here in southern Ontario, set up in a swamp in a dead tree with a few 2x4's to lean on. 6:50am my dad said he heard grunting behind him every few seconds. Looked behind him and could see his rack walking threw the tall grass and willows. He worked a scrape and freshed it up before walking out 40 yards infront of my dad standing broadside. Buck ran 40 yards before he dropped.


heres a trail cam pic of him a year ago today. Time and date is correct.



here he is today, one year later lol 9, I'm trying to get my dad to mount it, I wanted to see this buck bad this year, glad it was my dad that got him (if I couldn't lol)




Bucks are rutting hard right now, This bucks neck is huge, He's around 250+lbs on the hoof estimate, we'll weight him at the butchers in a couple days.
