Well, here goes nothing - another thread about my experiences and photos of some not so camera shy coastal Georgia whitetails.

After just under a month of supplemental feeding the herd of visiting bucks jumped dramatically yesterday afternoon with the addition of several very healthy, mature bucks.

I had over 300 pics to choose from but I culled a few that I thought were worth sharing. Enjoy.

Glad you liked them, DD03! They literally did come running in and did a lot of running after they got here too - it was a sight to see. I have been watching most of the new arrivals for a while as they were hanging out less than a mile away and I figured it was just a matter of time before some of them showed up here. Sure enough they did.

Speaking of Lewis, this one 8-point is just about the exact spitting image of him when he was 2 years old. I suspect this buck is about that age as well and the resemblance is remarkable. Same wide basket rack with real good tine length and symmetry. He'll be a good one if makes it long enough..

Good to see you back!!
Right back at you, my friend!

Have you been able to entice any to have dinner on the porch with you?
Dustin, I haven't really spent as much time out there with them like I used to but with this new bunch showing up that will likely change.
There are always a couple in the bunch who are willing to set aside caution for a bigger slice of the pie so to speak, so I'm sure that would be possible.

Great quality pics. We are so fortunate to be able to hunt these beautiful animals. Don't these bucks start rutting in Mid Sept?

I said something along those lines when I saw what was in the backyard, T-N-T.

Thanks, antharper! I was late getting started with the feed this year and I believe a lot of the bucks had already settled in to new haunts but hopefully they'll come back here from time to time.

Those are great Echo, thank you for sharing!!! :cheers:
You're welcome, bud!

Anytime.

Yes he is. I like that deer a lot.

Great quality pics. We are so fortunate to be able to hunt these beautiful animals. Don't these bucks start rutting in Mid Sept?
Affirmative, Kevin. As I've said before as soon as the velvet comes off and sometimes even before, these guys are ready to rumble. Peak of the rut is likely the first two weeks in October.

Those are some great pics. I take it you don't hunt them?
No, I don't for a lot of reasons including legal, safety and ethical factors. I do get after the sheds pretty hard though.

I like this every year, never witnessed anyone ever to do what you been able to do with wild whitetails (but) we all know different circumstances (pressure) have a lot to do with it & you have perfected how to do it & minimize your chances of something going bad. My hats of to you & I always enjoy following your threads. :cheers:
Kind words indeed, Mr. Johnson and that's why I put it out there - for folks like you to enjoy. Thank you.

Here's a couple more shots from the big gathering the other day - the soon to be 10-point is going to be awesome when he's slicked out with a big swollen neck! I'm pretty sure he dropped a shed in my yard last year as an 8-point.

Great to see the upcoming band looking so good.........Unless someone shows Lewis or Jbo as a trophy, the mystery can remain unsolved IMHO. Looking forward to another great season of the Golf Course Bucks:cheers:

Had a fine group come in to enjoy the sida, corn and sweet potato vines tonight. Eight bucks travelling together is always fun to watch.

The first pic is what happens after a determined Jack Russell spots a bunch of deer a few yards from his home.
