But if you'll allow me to divulge a fantasy, I'd love to tag a buck that I've known for awhile. You know, the kind of pursuit that's marked in years, not days or even weeks. I'd see the buck up close as a 2-1/2 year old and pass the shot. Find his sheds that spring. Get another encounter when the buck was three and, recognizing his potential, decide to let him go another season. As the buck aged I'd get the occasional trail cam pic. Find his sheds. Luck into a sighting now and then.
