They'd be fairly surprised if I started shooting at 'em.

It is a nice one, Dirtroad but upon further review I think it's just that two year old 8 with a ton of potential that I had pointed out earlier. Still waiting on that real big one.

Thanks UGA, it is a pretty good back yard.
I didn't get in until after dark but my wife said that seven bucks showed up earlier and were just milling around until she took them out some corn.

Yeah, a nice eight and I'm pretty sure he's just a bit north of two years old. I hope to see him at five and a half.

They're almost all slicked out and ready for Fall action now. Killer came up this afternoon with his velvet hanging in shreds......nice to see.

Ol' Killer looks like he might have J-BO genes. His rack looks a little similar to J-Bo to me.

I think you may be right, Slingshot. One other thing they have in common is that they both took several days to complete the velvet shedding process whereas the majority of the bucks that I see seem to do it almost overnight.

You got that straight, David! They killed a nice cedar I had on the edge of the yard a couple of years back. Bucks are going to be bucks.

Here's a couple of more from last night.....there are still 5 or 6 other bucks I'd like to get a look at but as we all know they tend to get slippery once that velvet drops. Hopefully they'll show back up soon.

Well thanks, Blisterapine! I certainly could not kill one of these bucks, that for sure, but put me in a climber 45 minutes away from here and all bets are off.

Good to hear from you, BIGABOW! Yeah, I hope to be able to show most of the 10 or 12 different bucks that were captured in velvet as hard antlered before I wrap it up for the year but I can tell the bachelor groups are already breaking up so that will require some luck.

I found a shot from last summer of Killer and Slick on the deck - Slick did well to go from a little 3 point to a respectable 2 year old eight.

Also another pic of Killer from last night still not free of that pesky velvet.

Sitting out on the deck a while ago with several bucks in attendance. A big bodied 9 was definitely feeling his oats tonight and was checking the credentials of every other buck that approached. He briefly hit horns with small 8 point slick when he was trying to pass and then really got into it with another larger 8 a few minutes later - locked up, grunting, heads in the dirt...the whole deal! Of course I had to check the cam and it didn't catch it. Maybe next time.
So far Killer doesn't want any part of the 9 but that could be just a temporary situation.

Got a good close up of Killer last night - he's still holding onto velvet over a week in to the shedding process. I'd like to shoot a deer that looked like that.

Thanks for sharing Echo. I keep coming back to your threads. They are always amazing to follow and see these groups of bucks.

antharper, that sure does look like a little kicker point on Killer's left beam but it's actually just the tip of one of his especially impressive brow tines. His rack will fool you from a lot of angles in to thinking he's more than a 6.

I'm glad that you do my friend!

Had another good turnout from the bucks this evening but I didn't observe any more fighting. I'll check the cam in the morning.

We're watching Irma pretty carefully down here at the moment. I've been planning for months to evacuate right into my Summit Viper this Saturday morning but that looks very much in doubt right now.

Thank you, sir!

I had almost 350 pics to look through this morning so I guess they were busy feeding up ahead of the storm. Caught a nice little sparring sequence as well, not the sort of full-on lock up I saw the other night but the 9 point is continuing to exert his dominance for the moment.

Negative on the evacuation, Kevin. Was certainly considering it but with each update things seem to be looking a little less dire for the Georgia coast. Will continue to watch it closely however.

I really feel for those folks in Florida though and hope all will make it through in as good a shape as possible.

Looking good, Ernie, as usual. Cool watching 'em go thru their velvet shedding.

Be safe & stay safe with them big game critters & beast of a storm coming. Nice seeing Hurricane Irma track drift more west as we see each 4-hour storm update. Really appreciate your fine entertaining neighborhood whitetail photo updates.

Thanks, BornTo!

Pleased to report that all are present and accounted for here after Irma came through. She left us a heck of a mess to clean up though, that's for sure.

The Band starting rolling in early yesterday afternoon even as the winds were still whipping through the trees. Some of the younger bucks looked a bit rattled but Killer was unmoved and seemed ready to begin working his way back to the top of the hierarchy. I've noticed that his neck has swollen considerably during the last week or so. His rack is still holding shredded pieces of velvet going on two weeks after it began to fall off.

Could be, I think the greater the antler mass the more likely it is to persist longer as well.
