Been running my camera for a couple weeks now. This buck is really the only decent one I have pictures of so far. I have a lot of basket 8's running around just like I did last year. I was really hoping to have a few more shooters on camera. I usually have at least 2-3 over the last 5 years on this property. I'm sure there are more around or that will show up soon. I'm really on the fence about this deer. I think he is 4 looking back at some pictures from last year. He could be something special next year.
My 8 yr old made it happen Saturday morning! His first deer! Only help he needed was pulling the hammer back on the Marlin. He made a 65 yard shot. Deer dropped in its tracks. Now he is learning how to let the smaller ones walk. So pumped for him. He managed to take his first deer on the same land I took my first deer on 25 years ago ( not family land, leased private land) which is really cool in my book!
on another note the deer were moving exceptionally well Saturday morning and evening. But didn’t hear many shots at all.
