    That sounds like a great way to get a bad mount! Lol
    When I took my two bucks to the taxi they said this is your decision we just do the work.

    Thanks that was my 2017 archery buck from Maryland. Also was my 1st buck after 11 years of hunting!

    Man y’all quit whining about the heat. LMMFAO it won’t cool off down here until the end of December. We walk outside in the morning it is instant sweat. When I hunt early season down here it is crazy thin camo. I carry nothing but my bow. Everything else stays in the truck or house.

    These are the only bucks I have left that are mounted lost the other 5 due to a house fire at my moms while I was in the Navy. The smaller one is my 2015 Alabama buck (124 3/8s) and my 2019 Kansas buck

    I’m hoping to be more active here soon. We are getting to a point where gutting houses for friends and coworkers is about done. They have new data that the north wall of the eye was sustained at 183 mph wind at landfall. The south wall at land fall has gusts of 212 mph sustained at 191 mph.

    In my defense, I was born and raised in Arizona. The humidity out here kicks my a$$.

    I understand that! Thankfully we've had a reprieve this week. Went from instant sweat from walking outside to actually having to do some work before sweating.

    First daylight pic of a hard horned deer. This one likely gets a pass from me but my boys will shoot it all day. Plots coming in nicely for getting them in late. Should be good as long as it doesn’t frost too early here in WI.

    That is crazy. It's a wonder anything is still standing.

    That's an awesome looking food plot. What did you plant?

    I will be out hunting again Sunday morning, I will probably whack a doe given the opportunity. The bucks have disappeared off my cameras, but then again they were bedding right behind the one and i never got any pictures... Dad is heading down tomorrow morning so hopefully he gets a crack at one!

    That plot is half clover (in the far background) and brassica mix (where the buck is) and not shown is a mix of peas, beans, and oats. I just overseeded rye on the peas/beans/oats side to add more volume but not compete with the other stuff while sprouting. The peas/beans/oats is the early attractant to keep the brassicas from getting hit too hard before they have a chance to grow to relative maturity. The winter rye supplements the peas/beans/oats and provides good food in spring right after the winter thaw. Brassicas don’t like competing with other things and will do better when planted on their own. We then swap the mix the following year so that you rotate the crop and prevent brassicas from developing a fungus if they are planted in the same spot each year.

    Wow, that's quite a variety. Have you ever tried turnips in the fall?

    I don't know how you do it Russ!! I was stationed at Fort Polk, LA for a year and a half. I don't know how I got through it. Most likely because I was young and in good health. The humidity never goes away...even in December, the humidity makes it colder. It never crossed my mind to hunt when I was down there it was so damn hot.

    When I was in Iraq for 15 months, it was like being in an oven. 120-130 degrees plus. When the wind blew, it was like the breeze you get when you open an oven. There was no escape, no air conditioned tents when I was there, no electricity. The only relief we got was pouring hot water over ourselves. We had no way to cool the water down, no electricity, so no fridges.

    Turnips are in the brassica family so yes they are in the brassica mix.
