My friend and neighbor growing up Arlen Raber was able to harvest a beautiful old buck about 300 yards behind his house on November 1, 2022.

Here is what he sent me in his own words; 

The hunt started for a buck we named "Deceiver" in the 2020 season. 3 seasons later and hundreds of pictures later I was able to encounter the buck for the fist time last night. Boonetown has been a game changer for me. I fed it side by side of a well known competitor and the deer always gravitated to boonetown first. I fed it as a mineral early season and as of late I would dump it over cob corn. The deer including this buck love it!

He said he had to get creative to get him. This is his setup. 

A local taxidermist estimated the deer to be 7-1/2 to 8-1/2 years old. 

The buck in 2020. Actually Feb of 2021. 

Deceiver in 2021.

A few days before he was shot.
