Its interesting to follow a buck via trail camera, and see how often a particular deer will show up. We are the home range for certain bucks, while others pass through or just visit periodically. This buck was consistently on trail cam from early in the year until late October. Then he disappeared for 2-3 weeks. I figured he was chasing doe off the property, was taken by another hunter, or just wasn’t hitting the trail cam locations any more. Then he returned shortly before rifle season. On opening morning of rifle, he presented himself in the open. Pretty crazy really, since I believe there was only one daylight trail cam of him all fall. You never know when that trophy buck will pop out of nowhere.
