I found some old footage I have on a VCR tape of some nice bucks I've seen in the past. The images are not too clear because of the analog picture and then I'm just recording it off my tv from my cell phone but I thought some of you might still like to see some of the bucks I've been lucky enough to see over the years.
It might be a good way to pass some time while we're waiting for the draws.
Let me know if you guys "like" this stuff and I'll post more.
This buck was staring at me for about 5 minutes. I thought it was a nice buck but nothing too special. Right when I turned the video camera off, the buck turned and started running off. That's when I started filming again. I couldn't believe how big it suddenly got.:shock:
I didn't even noticed that 8" cheater point on his left side until he was running away.
The buck had great mass and fairly long main beams too.
Enjoy.

Wow! that thing really did look awesome going away! I don't think I could see all of it on the frontal view, it was blending in with the brush or something

I filmed the buck in this next video a few days after the Nov. muzzy hunt had ended back around 1990. It was a general season hunt.
On the last day of the season, I was within 200 yards of this buck and was hoping to get within 100. I was shooting patch and round balls at the time.
Suddenly, I heard a horrible sounding racket coming from across the other side of the big flat that I and the deer were on.
It was an old farm truck with cattle racks in the bed.
The deer scattered and all ran into the thick cedars/junipers.
The truck stopped in the middle of the flat and a guy got out glassed the surrounding area for a couple minutes, then turned around and drove off.
It was one of the best looking bucks that I almost got a shot at.:mrgreen:

Here's some bonus footage of this second buck. I was able to sneak in on him right at dark.

Just curious.
How wide do you guys think that last buck was?

Here's this weeks buck.
Do you think he was over 30" wide?

Sure looks like it to me! Tough to tell as they tend to look bigger going away. If he's not 30, I'd be really surprised.
