A few weeks ago, our friend Wren sat in a new stand location on the ranch he hunts in South Texas and filmed this beautiful drop tine buck, which he aged at 3.5 / 4.5, in a sendero. “I filmed another really nice main frame 10 with a drop one weekend, too,” he said. “Can’t help but think about you each time I see one of these unique racks.”

There seems to be a strong drop-tine genetic on that ranch, and Wren has invited me down to hunt there next year. I am going to take him up on it. My desire for a drop-tine buck still burns deep.
