    It is amazing what some rain will do for a plot! I pulled cards last sunday and currently have plenty of little bucks and does running around. Keep waiting for some big boys to show themselves.

    Checking my best plot today, and pulling some cards on that farm, been sitting over 3 weeks. Pretty excited.

    Here are some pics of the split G2 buck out of velvet. What would you guess his score is. I'm thinking around 130, give or take. IMG_20180914_104433.jpg IMG_20180914_104714.jpg

    Dang he is pretty. He is one of those deer that will blow up if he makes it another year. He also could be a deer that would be hard to pass if in close!

    I agree with the split G2 buck being around 130. The question is, if you choose to pass him, how likely will it be he makes to next year? Are only person hunting this property? How likely is it that he lives exclusively on your property? Will the neighbors pass on him?

    All great questions. My guess is half of the neighboring properties would let him walk. My problem is this piece of property is like 15 acres. It is a major travel corridor between bedding and food sources. So he probably stands about a 50/50 chance of making it.

    And a zero % chance if you shoot him. The others are all just what if.
    I’d let him walk and hopefully he blows up next year.

    It’s not great but could also be worse. I think it will still attract deer.

    All that yellow is dead and wilted, 75% of it will be rotten and dead in a few more days.

    Finally getting around to uploading my antlered doe I shot last year on our opening weekend.

    After research its hardhorned because it was a non reproductive deer who had the anatomy of a doe on the outside but enough testosterone on the inside that it went hard horned.

    Regardless it's probably my most unique kill. 20171007_211120.jpeg 20171007_211120.jpeg

    Took my wife for a pistol range date this morning. Making she is comfortable before I leave on my elk hunt. Shot about 60 rounds between the two of us. IMG_5389.JPG
