I had been chasing this buck since I first caught him on my camera.
I was constantly moving my cameras around trying to catch him in different areas, glassing from ridges, and piecing it all together.
I was mostly catching him at night, but was slowly (and smartly) creeping towards his bedding area.
One day while out hunting I decided I wanted to still hunt/scout a new area because I just had a good feeling about it.
Sure enough I find GIANT trees torn up and I could tell by the tine imprints on other trees surrounding the rubs that this was the big boys area.
I took him from about a 3 mile area down to a 1/4 mile area I planned to hunt him in......
