    My kids like to name the deer that we would like to harvest. Thought id share a couple that we are watching. The first deer is Possum. Hes a nine that we hope to get a crack at. They named him possum because he only stirs at night. The other is a beauty of a ten we call Chester. Lol we call him Chester because we had a guy work for us that was as unpredictable as the wind and this deer is just that. might be there might not. might be there in daylight maybe dark. And may up and disappear for a week lol. 20180909_110136-600x450.jpg 20180909_104738-600x450.jpg

    Put a big flashy dirt hole in and you will have possum. Maybe not the possum you seek though. Good luck with them.

    I name basically the shooters or the ones that are have a clear distinction. Usually the first “thing” that pops in my head.

    We named this “Shocker”.

    My buddies and I usually try to name the deer as well, it just makes it easier for each of us to know what deer we are talking about, like "Chester" vs "The big 9" or the "crab clawed 10"

    I like to name does. I got this one that the old bucks warn all the young bucks about, we call her Maneater. Got this one that has hooked up with every buck in the forest, we call her Lucy.
