First sightings

For father's day a couple years ago, my mom and I bought Dad a trail camera. Over the past few years we have seen a set of triplets (one is super ugly/cute with a white mask around his eyes), we have seen many doe and some spike horns and a good looking 4-pointer. It is always exciting to see what is roaming around our 'spot'. This year, we have seen flocks of turkeys and a small 4 pointer with velvet still on his antlers. But over the past couple of weeks, something amazing showed up... there were 5 pictures that seemed like he was posing for the camera. 10 points, good and healthy. Dad and I are a little too excited because this buck has to stay near by our hunting ground through Oct and be where we are on opening day (please). Ideally, we will have one hell of a deer to bring home on Oct 29th = ) We know he is out there... we just need to wait and find him. 62 days
