Day 6...What a Buck!

Travis Frank

I know this isn't a wild deer, but I don't care.  I slammed the brakes so hard when I saw this giant standing by the road.  Apparently there is a deer farm in western Minnesota.  This was the only buck in the pen with antlers still attached.  I'd imagine he's days away from dropping them.  Then he will look no different than any of the rest of his comrades.  But for now he is one dandy to behold.  I'd guess around 165 to 170 class.  Now if I could just see one of these big boys walk by my deer stand when I'm towing my bow....I guess I will just have to look at this picture for moral fiber.  Number 49, what a buck!
