    I killed this buck in 2005. He was nocturnal and I had pics of him all over the lease. There's was an old camphouse that was hardly ever used and the yard was grown up about 4 feet tall. I was sitting in a ladder stand about 100 yards away. At about 10 am I heard 4 wheelers coming down the lane toward the old camp and when they got close to the camp this buck bailed out of the yard, jumped the fence and trotted right by me. He had found a spot that was secure and just happened to escape in the wrong direction. He was a very dark colored buck. Everyone that saw him commented on how dark his coat was.
