    The boss does it again. Monster buck

    Well the boss of the company I work for has done it yet again.
    First I'd like to say that he is one of the best deer stalkers/mangers I have ever met and he always seems to produce the results.
    Over the years I have seen many bucks but this one has perhaps trumped most of them for the sheer size of the coronets and bases.
    I therefore thought that it should at least get a mention as it is about the largest I have ever seen.
    The first pic is of a buck I shot a couple of weeks ago as it was damaging some new plantings. It is a nice normal six-pointer that most would be happy to shoot.
    It is however dwarfed as can be seen in the third picture. It is truly rare to shoot a buck that has coronets as wide as its skull.

    The buck was shot with a client.

    Young, middle aged and old were the only ages I was ever taught to recognise Willie.
    I would therefore call him, late middle aged.
    If I took a guess at years, it would be a guess at best and therefore entirely pointless.

    It's all a guess, since no deer I've encountered carried a passport It's fun to give aging a try though. Photo of the teeth maybe?
