Default NICE!!!

Nice Tensas buck, Deon. Did you take him in that bottom or was he skirting around it in the palmetto?? From my experience hunting there, if the bottoms don't have any water in them the deer tend to walk down the middle of them eating acorns. Even though they are in the broad open I guess the palmetto on either side gives them a false sense of security. I have seen several good bucks doing this in broad daylight.

Actually took him on his rub line which was in a bottom between two huge palmetto ridges. Killed a 170lb 4 point two days before out the same tree on the same rub line. The water in the bottom was ankle deep.

Didn't score him. What do you think? I'd figure around 100.

Default Whats the inside spread

I was guessing when I saw him to be between 100-110 but was having trouble guessing the spread from the pics.
