This deer was roaming around southwest Roanoke County, basically in a business/neighborhod district. Another friend shared another picture of this deer, also in velvet, taken probably less than 100 yards from where this was shot.
While I’d like to think that anyone who kills a buck of this caliber would be jumping to send me a hero shot, I know better. So I wouldn’t be shocked to learn that somebody killed this deer. Again, it’s Roanoke County so there’s hunting out there.
It’s also quite possible that this deer made it through another season. Again, his home turf is not exactly ideal hunting ground.
Anyway, Tommy wanted me to ask if anyone else saw this deer or knew of its fate.
