Two years ago I got this trail cam pic of an awesome nor-cal blacktail buck during the night. He had everything kickers stickers a drop tine, but lacked mass. I wanted to hunt him but I also knew he had potential to be better with another year or two. Including his one eye guard he was an 8 by 5, thus I named him “85”. that year I got mostly night pics of him on the far south end of the property. Not knowing his pattern I didn’t pursue him for that reason as well. Another thing I was nervous about was the ranch to the south that bordered the one I hunted, he would go to at night to feed and that ranch was hunted hard during rifle season. So I kept my fingers crossed that he didn’t get killed.
