    Dropping already huh? This cold weather must have kicked things into high gear as far as dropping antlers is concerned.

    Guess I better get my walking boots ready.

    Great start dawg. I'm ready to do a cam check and do a little walking. I have a bad feeling I may find a few of the 3.5 year olds dead that I had a bunch of pics from. They have been MIA since the beginning of November and haven't heard of anybody killing them.

    Went for a walk today and saw a couple bucks still with full racks. Then I stumbled on these two in the corn field and they ran up a tree to get away from me. Then they decided to give me a good photo op!

    Well, I went out to check my stands and for a small walk today. After my small walk I was driving the edge of the CRP field that I hunt when I spotted a nice shed that I have seen before on a bucks head. Here are the two videos of the buck and then the antler! It was about 30 yards from my tree stand!
