    grass was going crazy in our clover plots, so went out this past weekend and got those all mowed and will be spraying them in the weeks to come. put the first trail camera out for the year near one of this winters hinge cut sites, well see how it turns out!! also saw around five bucks with antlers starting to pop out of there heads, I cant wait till July to see those big velvet racks!!

    I'd let that one go, he's too stupid to know which tine is supposed to be split. :lol:

    Hell of a nice deer, good luck getting him on the ground.
