GSpotter sent in this is a pic of a buck that he has been chasing for 3 years now. The sheds from it are in his photo gallery. This is the 1st sighting of the year. The picture was taken over a scrape on Nov 6.

Awesome!

Hope he gets him[up]

I know how hard it is to hunt one specific buck for 3 years myself. It can wear you down bigtime, thats for sure. I wish him all the luck in the world harvesting that beautiful buck!

My brother has a spot in holmdel that has some giants there is only four of them allowed to hunt there and i am not one[mad].
One of the guys got a 14 pointer 2 weeks ago.
Monmouth county has alot of big deer but its mostly all private and hard to get permission.
Good luck getting him[up]

Notice how his tarsal Glands are not even dark yet and the Pic was on the 6th of November. It is going to be a later Peak than in the past few years in my opinion.

I dont know about that Dave, I think they are pretty dark, but the flash made them look white. Look at the bottom of them, they are stained there. Look like it to me anyway.

Also, if you notice his mouth is wide open. Heavy breathing after chasing does maybe?

However, I do agree the rut seems to be peaking a little later this year.

Oh yeah, almost forgot.

BEAUTIFUL BUCK....hope you can get him GSPotter![up][up]

Hey, KAH I too hunt in Marlboro. My guess is that Buck is moving in and around the Syc center off of 520. I seen a nice 12 pointer chasing does there on Saturday.
