How do you kill a big buck that only visits your blind at 4 a.m.? Well, the easy answer is: You don’t. The mule deer buck in the accompanying photo is one such vampire. I featured a picture of him when he was still in velvet in an early Rut Report. He’s been on my trail camera, roughly every other night, since early September. He travels with three other small bucks. So far, zero pictures of the big 12-point in daylight.
