I was going through old videos I've taken over the last few years. We always wonder how much a deer will change from year to year. I just happened to recognize this buck in a video from three or four years ago as a buck I had passed last year. I wouldn't be surprised if his weak antlers have saved him from more hunters than just me. Obviously there have been at least two occasions that I gave him a free pass. Likely others have too and may be a good example of us unwittingly letting bad genes be passed on due to modern hunter's picky nature. He didn't "improve" a great deal over the years but it is neat to see the changes.
