Post The story of "Lefty"
I finally got to see one of the bucks I had hoped to see last hunting season. I called him "Lefty". I think I saw Lefty the last year after deer season was closed. Im not positive it was him but I saw a great buck while shed hunting in early Feb. 2010. Last summer I got pictures of a nice buck with a left side twice a big as his right so I called him lefty. I got pictures all through the summer. I never saw him during the season, I heard he was shot by a local woman. While reading N.Y. Outdoor news I saw a picture of him and the woman who was lucky enough to get him. Then last week while getting my mount from my taxidermist there he was!! I got to see him in person. It was great seeing him close up and personal. He was even biger than I thought. My guess was he would gross in the mid 120's but the he actually grossed 132. He had more mass than I thought! Also you could see where he had damaged his right horn while he was in early velvet and thats probably why Its growth ws stunted. What a great buck! Here are the pictures.

Awesome buck we definitely enjoyed you sharing the trail cam pics of him throughout the summer. Always nice when you can actually lay your hands on the rack even if it was shot by another hunter. I know that watching the same deer grow their racks all summer on the trail cam kinda makes you get attached to them. Great post
