Default Trail cam bucks from my hood

I'm running 6 mineral sites on 5 properties. One has two but they're over a mile and a half apart. Figured we could see how they grow.
The gooduns usually pack their suitcases just before opening day.

This year I put two 32' ladders in the woods. I'll hang a lock on closer to opening day. Thought I'd let em get accustomed to the ladders first. I also picked up a few more climbers to leave in the woods. This tree is on a new property and close to where I park. I cut a few limbs off for my climber and painted the cuts. My main shooting lane is up and down a wide shallow creek as they cross. These trees are on the bank. There will be a food plot here too. I've already killed the grass.

It looks fairly new born. Its wet from crossing the shallow creek. If a whitetail gestation period is 201 days. When did it mate ?
According to how some of my doe look, I still have fawns that haven't dropped.

I made a scrape under this licking branch. I put doe pee in it, I used it and the deer took it over. This is at my mineral site. More proof deer use scrapes year round.
I'm leaving a climber here. They funnel around and through this fence. Theres a hole I can walk through just right of the frame. On the other side is a big privet thicket.
Hopefully I can bust one standing right there.

Cool looking bucks. Now putting up a chain link fence to direct the deer travel is hardcore

With ratchet straps. Both are set up with multiple trees and are adjusted in case trees sway.

I don't know but I don't want to ? The xbow is insurance. I guess my shoulder will decide ?

None of the big boys showed up this week. I guess they're at the hiding place they use during deer season ?
That funky nosed buck and a doe that should be drained of blood are the only interesting pics.
