A good friend of mine from NJ shot this nice buck last Thursday, Nov 8th, up in the North Maine Woods.

He walked as far as he could, 150 yards off a logging road, and did some rattling when this bruiser came crashing in. Shot at 30 yards as the deer was quickly walking directly at him!

Scott has been hunting Maine since the early 90's and got a 252# buck that made the book in 1993, I believe.

Unfortunately, liver and pancreatic cancer, along with all the Chemo has slowed him down quite a bit, and this buck was a Godsend on what could be his last Maine hunt. We are praying that it isn't.

One picture is of Scott and my son. Scott stopped at my house enroute to the butcher.

Thanks for reading.

That is one beautiful buck and a very heartfelt story.
Good luck to him and a prayer is sent his way that he hunts Maine in 2020 and gets an even bigger buck
