If I were in your shoes, this would be the buck I'd be shooting for. I love this deer.
You might want to sweeten up the mess hall a little with some apples.
Been thinking about it,,, but I'm afraid I'll jinx it... Good to see him still showing mornings and evenings...
looks like he will be hard antlered by season. Glad everything is still on track with all the changes. Catch any fish?
i cant wait to see him with the velvet gone. i couldnt imagine being in your shoes.
After seeing your trail cam pics, I think I'll just quit checking mine.
The anticipation is killing me...
Barry do you have any night pics of these? I'm curious of how they reacted to the IR glow of the Moultrie M-80. They run like they have been shot from a canon were I hunt in Amishville.
Yes, getting a few night pics of them... Does not seem to bother them...
Like everyone else I will be cheering you on come opeing morning. Do you feel confident about getting in your stand without bumping him? I know anything can happen but I was just wandering, good luck I sure hope to see some pics of you holding his head up.
All I can say is " If you kill that buck opening morning,you better post up them pics quick "
cause I think a bunch of us is going to be in the tree with you in spirit.You are going to be
a mighty nervous man on the morning of Sept 3rd...............make that shot count and dont aim at the rack.
Do you already have a stand up in that location? Is your prevailing wind pretty good compared to what direction he comes from?
If no one else is hunting at this spot, I would suggest skipping the morning hunt. Chances of bumping him off of the corn are too high. Wait for an afternoon when the wind is right. You may only get one chance at a buck of that caliber, make sure everything is in your favor. There is a reason that most mature bucks are shot in the afternoon during the early season. IMHO Good luck, he's a great buck.
Great advice. Good luck Barry!
I agree, BH. I'll be rooting for you to whack that biggun too, unless, of course, I manage to find out the location of your Honey Holes and get permission to hunt there myself. In which case, I'll be rooting for you to recover fully (and hopefully with no discernible future limp) after I send my boys in to kneecap you on September 2nd.
Your Good Friend,
p.s. Rils gave some good advice, but I reckon he forgot you weren't no part-timer on his first rodeo when it comes to hunting them early season bucks. See ya in December.
