Big Louie

Early season I received a phone call from my good buddy. His voice sounded as if he had just shot a buck so i asked him what he got. I drove over and looked at his computer and saw the biggest buck i had ever seen on a trail camera.
But, now the news is out. After keeping this brute a perfect secret all throughout the season "Big Louie" was found dead. The 250-inch buck was discovered by two pheasant-hunting friends.
When we first saw the photo, my buddy talked about how he was going to hunt him, how to stay calm, how to go about the whole process of getting this buck, and how we couldn't even speak of this Monarch.
They would see him plenty during the bow season, but never in range. He told me that he was not going to go out and hunt during the firearms season and had to just sit around and pray that "Big Louie" would make it through.
Just about a week or so ago the buck was found dead. It was a tragic way to see this monster go down. They ruled the death as natural causes.

These photos came to us with this brief description:
