This deer was named "Quattro" due to him always being a clean 4 x 4. I believe he is 6 1/2 and I have lots of pictures of him the past 4 years. Despite best efforts, I or any one hunting my ground had never seen him live on the hoof. Every year he would disappear around September 1st and reappear the following spring.
On Nebraska's 9-1-19 opening I saw him for the first time at 100 yards heading into the corn with no shot opportunity. I was excited to just see him. The next time I hunted, on 9-3-19 I watched him go into the corn and feed between 30-50 yards away for over an hour before presenting a shot.
I had never planted corn before this year mainly because it is planted all around the area I hunt. I strongly suspect putting in that corn plot was the factor that kept the deer around a little longer and allowed me an opportunity to put my hands on his velvety antlers. I have shot several deer that scored much higher than Quattro, but because of the years of fruitless chase, he is the most special. Good luck to all and may your plots be as successful.
