Do You Remember This Buck?

Do you remember this buck?  I posted him on November 17 and mentioned that he was the most impressive buck I had seen during the rut.  Not the most points but most impressive spread and length of tines.  This view gives you a better view of the rack and provides you the opportunity to see all 12 of the points including the spot with the broken brow tine.

This is not the best of the photographs I got of this buck but I still liked it.  It was taken early morning just as the sun came up over the horizon.  He had been chasing does and was in the beginning stages of a lip curl allowing him to smell the does in estrogen.  I sure could use another one of these trips right now to relax me and relieve some stress.

That is an amazing buck, Brad. He ranks high among the largest I have seen in SNP and I don't think I ever captured one of them in that dramatic of a pose.
