    Seen this on camera today in Kansas, but also had a doe with a new born fawn really surprised me. But when we checked cameras last week she was there and big we joked she was pregnant. Guess we were right. IMG_21401.jpeg

    Half rack, but the big boys are so thin they should have started this weekend the young spike through small 8's are still fairly thick.

    I have to check cameras this weekend but I hope not. The growth sucked this year, they could use an extra 8 months.

    I pulled my two cards yesterday and had velvet and hard antlered bucks on them. Smaller bucks though. I haven't seen a shooter on them yet.

    As I write this...I'm listening to two buck sparing behind the house. Couple of pretty good cracks, lots of brush noise.
