Excellent. I would venture to say probably your best crop of mature bucks you've had if my memory is correct.

It sure will, antharper. This particular group seems to ramble a lot and it's unpredictable when they'll be back. We know they're here when the yard is suddenly absolutely full of antlers.

Yeah shoot, I hear you Fever. It'd be some good hunting if you could get it!

Keep checking in, Johnson. They'll be shedding velvet before you know it!

I think you're right, Gut Pile. They're making quite the impression on me and I've seen a few up close before. I also think most of those bucks in the big group yesterday are three years old or younger.....maybe one four year old in the bunch.

Spoiler alert : I've seen a very, very big heavy 8-point in the general area on several occasions but I don't have any pics or other proof that he's paid us a visit yet. Given where he's hanging out though I don't think it will be long before I get some pics of him.

Talking

Looking fine with some full bodied healthy whitetails.

Lots of fun following your neighborhood updates.

Appreciate it, Sir.

Hey Ernie good to see your band of bucks again. I started getting ready for this season about two weeks ago and been meaning to check on your bucks every since. I have also seen lots of daytime movement and fawns this year. Good luck to you this year and I'll be tuning in for sure!!!

Thanks Strickland and it's good to hear from you again! I'm not sure what's up with the increased daylight movement this year but if it continues into the fall it should be an interesting season for sure.

I'm still waiting on the full grown 8 point that I mentioned earlier to show up but I'm still seeing a good amount of activity otherwise. Killer is going to need a strong neck to tote that big six point rack around this year!

I'm glad you liked them, David and yes Killer has the best brows of the bunch.

Thanks, MFOSTER! Well, there are always exceptions to the rule..
It's true that you won't see many coastal bucks winning the truck buck weeks (if any) but we still have some good looking deer. Those 125-130 class racks can look really big on a 135 lb. buck

Thanks, antharper. I'm pretty sure that I know the big eight. I don't know where he's hanging out at the moment though. He'll show about velvet shedding time if history is any guide.

Here's another pic with two year old Slick in the foreground - he likes to pose for close ups it seems. That's Killer with his head down and also a seven point that often runs with them.

Thanks guys, it is a nice place and we like it here. I'd like to see the fairway planted to millet and corn but other than that I can't complain much.

Had a pretty good turnout yesterday that's really got me looking forward to velvet shedding time - which won't be long. Unless some new bucks show up the next pics will be of some slicked out or velvet-hanging bucks.

Cool

Wooo Weee at the rocking Whitetail Wonderland!

Sure are some purdy daylight photo captures.

Ole Killer's towering brow tine eye guards are eye catching.

Having a blast again with 'em, Ernie. Mighty thanks, Sir.

WOW!! Imagine seeing this out the window any day, great pictures. Even though I hunt deer I never shoot them around the house, I enjoy watching their behavior as they interact. Since the neighbors started clearing land and creek bottoms next door I don't see the nice bucks. So thanks for posting your deer.

They are for a fact, Dooly! I'm starting to note just a little more aggression over the last week or so as well. More chasing and posturing - it's coming!!

Yeah, hunterof, I'm thankful for the opportunity and I wouldn't feel right about not sharing with other folks who I know are also interested in such matters.

Thanks, videoman! There are some threads from past years in the trail cam forum if you're interested in catching up.
The deer live in what amounts to a several thousand acre refuge and most have them have had exposure to people since they were born. Interestingly, it's often the fawns with their natural instinct to flee that are harder to approach than the older deer.
I've never intended to try and make it out to be a big secret on the exact location and many folks on here know where I live or if they're familiar with coastal Georgia could put two and two together but I think it's probably best not to be anymore specific than that.
Hope you enjoy the pics!

Thank you, Omendude! Hope you have a great season as well and if it's anything like last year's, you will!

This is not the real big eight that I've been hinting about recently but he's a nice, big bodied buck with a little age on him.

Thanks Echo. I dint intend on you telling the exact location just a general overview. Not everyday you see bucks like that in someone's yard so I assumed there must be no hunting in the area. What a cool place to live. Thanks for sharing

I hear you, videoman and it's all good!


Well, I'm fairly sure the big eight finally did make an appearance last night. I flipped on the floodlight and there was a really big buck standing out back by himself. I was thinking the one I had seen had a little bit longer G-2's and 3's but the more I've studied the pics I'm sort of leaning to the fact that this is the buck. Then again I've got a pile of 8's coming in right now and it's getting difficult to keep them straight.

That's a nice 8.
