I had that happen to me a few years ago Native. I had a buck all picked out, which I don’t usually do, but this sucker was highly visible in my plots and lots of them were daytime pics. Then, Mr. Crab Claws moved in and I got him on every camera on my place, always moving. Once I had six pics of him and my “target buck” fighting, (this with a camera set on one minute between pics), and I never saw the first buck again.
Mr. Crab Claws ran him completely off I guess. M. C. C. was a fugly buck but as he was a healthy five year old I just ate him. More meat !
