first good buck sighting
« on: August 18, 2012, 12:00:27 AM »
Just saw the first good buck of the summer, too dark for photo, but good none the less,  The drought has them messed up, but even with the mutts barking, they are starting to show up. walked out and saw a nice one, had to be an 8 ,  outside the ears, nice height, the mutts wanted a scratch behind the  ears!  Just love the stealth of these guys.
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Took a pic of this one that ventured in earlier this evening to eat some acorns under the oak tree.
iPad camera on zoom, and about 25 yards.  A little fuzzy. Season with bow opens 4 weeks from tomorrow.

Nice bucks! I recently caught this family group of bucks with a SpyPoint Game Camera.

This pic of a young buck, last years' fawn, that may have a nice rack next year if he makes it through this year.   ;D
Has that "deer in the headlights" look.

Yes, he has good potential.  It may be a chance for him to make it through this year, but the next couple are necessary for him to reach his full potential.  Very few make it that far.   :-\

beenthere! nice, real nice young buck. Man that is a killer for you to have to watch. A few years ago I had the Laredo soy beans out, watched as the season progressed, and they just faded away.   Good luck on keeping him close to home, he has exceptional potential for sure,

Very nice! His nocturnal pattern will help his longevity. Have you given him a name yet?

I've noticed that there were a lot more fawns born this year than there were last year!

I still think the DEC has an unspoken hand in it!  ;)

Also seeing a lot of fawns. This one mistakes a buck for its mother. :D

Is there any chance that's a doe with antlers? It does happen you know. I wondered right away what that spotted fawn was doing with an antlered buck. That's something I've never seen in all my life.

Not uncommon to see the doe with fawns mixed with bucks this time of year.
That buck is foot thumping the fawn in the second pic.

Couple weeks ago, saw 5 bucks (two I'm sure were last years' fawns) and a doe with two fawns. The bucks were sparring, with each other, and one of the younger bucks was getting run off. He went over to 9 tom turkeys and started sparring with one, when it fluffed at him with wings outspread. The young buck backed off and went over to a fawn to try to let the fawn know he was bigger. The doe let him know not to mess with her fawn. Was a riot to watch and the young buck learned where he was in the pecking order.  ;D

Yep .... love watching the deer. I can spend hours doing it. My folks had a wild tom turkey that started hanging around the house and a black bear came in the yard to eat some of the apples from the trees. That tom turkey ran that bear off if you can believe it.

I was on the JD and saw a couple of bucks yesterday.  I was on a woods road and just as I spotted the larger buck, I passed a big oak tree.  My next vision was a smaller buck and the larger one walking downhill and out of sight.  The larger one was probably 16" with maybe 8" G2's.

I put both game cameras out yesterday overlooking corn feeders.  Same places as last year, so they will find them.  I know that the 9 point sticker buck made it through the season, so I am interested in seeing what he is this year.
