Magic Bucks 2017
« on: October 01, 2017, 02:37:26 PM »
Yup, it's another year and time to start thinking about Deer Hunting.  My prep activities during the past several weeks have included bushhogging, herbicide spraying, subsoiling, disking, and finally planting this past week.

We also did some needed low limb tree trimming and fallen tree removal from some of the trails.  This work will continue when Marty and I return from Colorado the end of the month.
 

 
Our Archery Season opened yesterday and a Grandson took this yearling meat Doe fairly early.

The same Grandson took a tall 8 point this morning with his bow.

Young buck, my guess would be 2 years old.  This buck was taken on my leased property (300 acres) where the adjoining landowners have no particular age/size management program.  Legal is all that matters.

I finally finished my bushhogging yesterday and a Grandson spent yesterday afternoon trimming overhanging limbs on most of the trails.  I did not get any trail cameras out this year but the bucks are really scrapping.

Our gun season opens Saturday the 18th.

PatD opted to pass on this buck this evening.  He was feeding at ~150 yards and we watched him for 15-20 minutes.
 

 
 

 
He is an 8 point probably 14" inside spread.  The G2's looked to be ~8".  Just a good solid fairly heavy antlered probably 2 years old.  Today was his lucky day.

  Yep, lucky is correct :), around here that is huge, and I assure you, within 15-20 minutes, at least 20 bullets would have been heading his way :D

I wish that he had not been in the shadows and the picture would have done him justice.

No pictures but a Granddaughter just called.  She and her husband took three does yesterday and today.  They saw some bucks but opted for the does.   smiley_thumbsup

   That's what I did first evening of rifle season last year. First coyote I've seen in the woods when I had a gun along. Was a young one weighed 23 lbs. I'v let bears, foxes and bobcats go but not as tolerant with a coyote.

The evening deer are moving soooo late.  We finally saw 8 this evening with two bucks; the largest was a tall either 4 or 6 depending upon whether there were brow tines.  Too late for us to tell.

It is hot and dry, but we are forecast for some weather the middle of the week.  Maybe I can get some nitrate out and hoping for some rain.
