“The autumn leaves have cast the forest in a blaze of orange and gold. The large whitetail bucks are busy rounding up their females, and challenge any others who pose a threat to their one dimensional mission. Once in a while, conditions are such that a buck grows a massive set of antlers. He survives by staying out of sight during the day and feeding at night, but in order to gather his does during the rut, he must make himself visible during daylight hours. This non-typical buck scores nearly 500 points and redefines the phrase “Trophy Deer.” In this forest he is truly a legend!"
– John Banovich, Artist / Conservationist
