Anyone know what breed he is?

To me, it has the colorings of a Sulmtaler but it looks too small.  Sulmtalers have a broader frame.  So I'm going to say it's a Golden Duckwing Old English Game Rooster.  What a beauty!

Some sort of gamebird, maybe American Game.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!

What kind of comb does he have? Can you get a better, closer picture of him?

 

going by simply color is difficult. I have a rooster that is very similar who is a multi-generation barnyard mix...

So far that's the best picture I can get. He is a stray that has been lurking in the woods by the coop for about 2 weeks. He's obviously been introducing himself to my hens while we were at work. His comb is flat, maybe a pea comb? I cannot catch him to quarantine and don't want to kill him. My hens are not upset at his presence and he's not attacking me so...... we'll see. If I get a better picture, I'll post it. Thank you all for your help!

that's definitely a game chicken.  He has a sloppy pea comb- typical of pea comb mixed with straight comb..  very common in game chickens.
