We started back feeding as soon our season went out so we put cameras on some of the feeders for a few weeks to see what bucks were still around. We've still got lots of bucks hanging around but some of the bigger guys haven't been seen, hopefully they shed early from the stress of the drought and we just can't tell who they are.
I saved some of the pics and put together a short slide show to make it easier to see all the pics.
Some years there no gun hunters and some years 1 or 2, there were 0 in 2014 and 2016 that I remember and there were 2 in 2015, 2 young ladies about 12 years old or so both killed their first deer, both killed a nice fat doe.
A child hunting with a gun may only harvest a doe, here's the first paragraph on page 6 of the rules I sent you last month.
P a g e | 6
ï‚· You may bring your spouse or dependent children to hunt but they may only hunt your primary area and you must hunt your primary also when they hunt. You don’t have to both hunt the same stand just both stay in your primary area. Any fines that your guests incur are the member’s responsibility, also any buck killed by a spouse or child counts as your buck. Non-dependent guests CANNOT shoot a buck under any circumstances. If you are bringing a non-dependent guest it must be approved by David at least 7 days before hunting. Because several of our members have small children we will allow a minor child to kill a DOE with a gun or crossbow starting Thanksgiving Day. The same rules apply that you and the guest must hunt in your primary area. If it is a minor child that is hunting it is probably a wise choice for you to be in the same stand. There is a lot of chance for error here so be VERY careful.
It's that time of year again, deer season is winding down so we will be looking for a few members to replace any that we may lose. I won't know for sure until early Feb how many openings we will have but we will go ahead and start talking to people and showing the property as soon as season is out.
Here is a buck I passed in late Oct and another in late Dec this year and also some trailcam videos from this season.
If you think you may be interested in looking at our place just let me know, text or email is easiest for me but a call will work too, all of my info is on the first post.
