Great pics as always Echo, I love the one with the really tall brows!!
Thanks, David! I like to see some good brows on a buck myself.

Thanks for sharing , that ol boy in the last picture looks like he had a rough winter !
Yeah, he's had a rough winter and a pretty rough life, antharper. He's one of those unfortunate deer that has some sort of jaw issue that causes his tongue to hang out all of the time. The summer is probably worse for him than the winter though with all of the biting flies and skeeters biting that exposed flesh. Was carrying two spikes on his head but dropped them both around Christmas. He hangs around so much nowadays I was thinking about putting up some sort of stall for him out back. :bounce:

Here's a few more pics among my heavily browsed and rubbed azalea's and Throw and Grow patch. Probably be a good spot for a climber on the last evening tomorrow.

WOW!!! That slick head buck looks ancient.
Yeah, his face has some character for sure, white hair, ragged ears, heck his eyes are even an unusual color when seen up close. We call him "Tongue Boy." I don't really know how old he is as he just showed up last year as a small spike and I thought then that maybe he was just 1.5 or so but now I'm thinking he must be a bit north of that. I'm trying to help him get through these lean months till spring.

Nice photos Echo, always enjoy the scenery.:cheers:
Thank you, Johnson!

Yep. I always enjoy Echo's buck threads. Wish I could get some hanging out around my crib.
Glad you do, elfiii! It's all about being in the right spot as far as getting them to hang around and come up close on a regular basis. Most places of course, it's just not going to happen.

Wow!!! Here I've been excited to see four does feeding in my backyard for a few months now and waiting for a buck to show up. Can't imagine the excitement if I had half as many bucks as you have in these photos. Thanks for posting them.

Get more pics of you sitting on your deck and them walking up and eating right in front of you. :biggrin2::cool:

It's a lot of fun for sure. Good luck on getting the bucks to come in!

What kind of camera are you useing ? I see its a stealth but what model is it.
I believe it's the G-42. Bout time to try a newer one out. I get more blur than I would like with this one, especially at night but overall Stealth cams have been good for me.

Yeah, I might do that again sometime, elfiii.
I haven't been running the camera the last few days but I'll get it up and taking pics again tomorrow.

I know one thing, they are about as hungry as I've ever seen them down here this winter. I hope we get an early spring green up because they could sure use some good quality natural browse in a hurry.
