This guy came in to some of his favorite goodies that I left him. I'd like to keep track of his antler growth thru hunting season.

Aye. Don't know of anyone capable of cooking antlers or
horns.

I hang my head in shame. I didn't even apply for a deer permit this year. I have deer rifles and plenty of places to hunt....I'm just tired this year, maybe next.

This guy is still growing. Maybe he won't break off any antlers.



This photo was taken at 12 midday.

Deer can be moving at anytime of the day, or night..

During the wet season, when there is water in the pond, in my upper meadow, the white tail deer come to drink and "hang out" at a certain time, and the mule deer are on a different schedule.

Saw two very nice white tail bucks, with a doe with a small fawn, when I was out yesterday.

I'm getting ready.
"Let them eat corn" is my way of having a good chance of having meat for sausage,jerky and steak.
25-06 for deer and elk and 340 WBY for bear that is only one month away.

Nah Lynn, current thinking is I'll try to use the 6.8 AR or the Savage .260 Rem. Both those rifles are short and compact and weigh very little.

The older I get, the less I like lugging a heavy rifle to and from my stand. I'll still do it for special occasions(such as hunting out West) but the ranges I have to shoot around my property are short and a longer barrel/long range cartridge combo just isn't needed.
I'll leave cartridges on the '06 case or larger for Guy to play with in Washington and Wyoming.

MC, here in the South we have a very long growing season. Typically, I plant summer crops and winter crops and I have to time the plantings just right so the crops will last through hunting season.

If I'm not careful the deer will eat everything before the season begins. I try to plant some crops that will bring the deer early and some that will stand in the field through hunting season.

I usually plant iron and clay cowpeas for the summer and add some millet/sorghum combos that will stand through winter. Else the field will be bare and the animals are a little hesitant to come out of the timber.

Another shot of "Skippy" from 8:30 this morning!

Well, "Skippy" is still growing and you can see the growth from week to week.

I've seen two good bucks in the past few days still in velvet while out and about. Getting stoked for the season to start.

I live in the bread basket of America and the deer where I hunt live in milo and soybean fields. Particularly the early season there will be fat more than an inch thick under the hide on one pretty much all over. Even the buck I shot last year who was pretty darn big and at the height of the rut tastes pretty good.
