Been after this local mountain buck here in Maryland going on 2 years now. We gave him the nick name Split Ear for obvious reason. Got plenty of trail cam pics of him but I only laid eyes on him 3 times in 2 years while in the field. Was hoping to take him in archery season this year but turns out he had me patterned better than I had him patterned. Got lucky last Monday night. A 130 grain Hornady SST to the neck ended my chase. Looks like he broke off a few tines and shed a few pounds during the rut. Some of the pics are trail cam pics I got of him over the past 2 years.
