His girlfriend is peeking in the top left corner. I was simply blown away during this encounter. I didn't expect to have him ghost out so close to my scene. I've spent literally 3 straight weeks trying to get this close. Tonight I finally got caught him red handed LOL! Whitetail simply drive me crazy..it's a game of chess trying to narrow the distance....even with a telephoto....it's a challenge! FINALLY OLD BOY!!!!

It's amazing these big birds can balance so well during their night time roost.
I caught this old boy out trailing an unseen doe. As he mosied along, he worked a scent trail following a doe that previously fed through this area. Note his left eye, he recently fought another buck earning a battle scar in the process. He's very fortunate he didn't lose that left eye. Sure would like to find the other buck that managed to toe it up with him.....maybe next time.
