After spending a year chasing the biggest whitetails in the country OL learned a lot about mature bucks and what it takes to hunt them.

Big bucks are cool, but the biggest bucks are freaks of nature.
Something happens to a whitetail deer between ages 4 and 5. They become suspicious, sneaky, vigilant and nocturnal.
That sounds a little like my own children between ages 9 and 10, but big bucks are different. Their lives depend on their senses, and as they age, their senses become as sharply honed as a two-blade broadhead.
