    Sad day for me story!

    Well for the last couple years I have been chasing one buck. Some will remember two years ago the story of myself missing this buck. I had only seen him a few times and a couple trail cam pictures. But still felt I was getting closer, one more chance. That was all I was asking! Tag soup was on the menu last year because all I wanted was to take him.

    Well last night I recieved a text message around 11pm, my wife woke me up and said that I better get it, might be one of the kids. So I did, it was not that! A guy that I once worked with, his son sent me a picture of a buck that was hit last Friday night by his buddy with in a couple 100 yard of where I have been hunting. And yes I'm 99% sure this is the guy I have been after. Man he has at least two more months in velvet and always worried he would get hit around rut time but was I wrong, June!

    He looked like a dandy!!. to bad he had to die by been hit by a car , but you know his genetics are around and his brother or son could step out in front of you this fall.
    what goes around, comes around. (I sure do hope so)!!

    man that stinks, i have been worried about the same thing happening with the buck I am hunting because I know he crosses a couple fairly busy roads on a nightly basis. Makes me sick to see the pic. Hope you find another buck just as good to hunt this fall.

    Wow, what a shame such a great buck had to go that way!!! Well, at least you know now so you aren't looking for him all fall long.
    Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

    What a bummer... at least you can be sure he bred some does last fall. I have been seeing tons of fawns this year. I think the mild winter we had has something to do with the survivability of the fawns this year... anyway hopefully in 4 or 5 more seasons one of his sons takes after dad and you get to attach a tag to his antler!!!

    Sorry, Offtheground. Hopefully his genes are well represented in the area and you find and even bigger relative this fall.

    That sucks. Sorry to hear that.
    "...the deepest, most permanent features of all great moments outside are the names, faces, descriptions, and emotions. The antlers on the wall...well, they're just bones affixed to boards. But what they represent, however, is flesh and blood - fathers and sons, friends spending time with friends and the the seasons of life when the people we love were still with us. These old antlers on the wall...well, take a seat, my friend, and I'll tell you all about them." -Rev. Zeke Pipher
