Default Is this a Freak or Camera trick

Got these pictures this past week on a hunting lease in eastern KY. Its a main frame 8 with a sticker on the one side. He was in there three different nights and multiple times each night. There are several scrapes in the area so I am thinking he came to the camera, checked out the scrapes then came back. What i can tell is ihe really THAT big?! he looks huge in the pictures but I am not sure i have ever seen an 8 poiner that wide. It may be a camera trick mixed with buck fever but what do you think? He also looks pretty old to me, but I will leave the guessing up to you because once they get past 4.5 I don't have a clue. Sorry about the crappy pictures i had to snap a picture of the computer screen. Sorry about the bad angle i'll reattached right side up!

I thought that too but we have pictures of him at 6:55 at night and also 6:34 in the morning. THat is right after and right before shooting light. There is always a hope. I have had coytoes scare bucks right too me before and I have stumbled upon them bedded down before as well. It would take a touch from God him self to tag this buck but stranger things have happened.

Best way to get him will be most likely before the rut when he is in his feeding pattern and find where he is feeding and bedding and get between them in a spot that would put him there closest to shooting hours. If you don't get him the first 1-3 days of your set you probably won't get him.

No, it's not a camera trick at all, that's a WIDE 8pt!!! Good luck getting a shot at that bad boy.
