I recently shot the biggest bodied buck that I have ever seen in central Virginia. In the pictures I had of him back in the summer to me he looked like an angus bull. I was getting him on camera at least once a week all the way until November 4, then he got on does and staid on does all the way until he met his end on November 22 (he was tending a pair of does at the time, probably will never hear a grunt like that again). I have never seen such hard and concentrated rut activity here before. So my question to you all is how much weight can a buck loose when he is chasing hard for that long? I figured him to be well over 200 lbs in late August, and his live weight when killed was 181.2.
