I saw him once in a private corn farm bordering public land. The farmer doesn’t hunt and doesn’t let anyone hunt there (I asked) The public land is thick swampy marsh but I think I found the little islands those deer are bedding on. Problem is that perhaps come oct 1 he won’t be around anymore. Deer around here that old usually don’t stick around public for hunting season.. but I’m hoping I can sneak into that marsh and take him out though early season or during the rut. It’s a beautiful buck! Good luck on your scouting and hunting!
