I went for a walkabout yesterday and set up several new ambush areas. Went ahead and checked the mineral sites trail cam. Its only been a few days. A little kicker heavy typical 9 pt was there with a good kicker heavy 8 just before I got there. They dont seen to mind walking during shooting hrs.
Their drying up and getting ready to shed velvet. Dont know where the extra main beam or long kicker buck went. Havent seen him in a while ? Him and the 1st buck are on my hit list along with the big 9 with extra brow. Theres a few more also that are not on this load of pics. I wont know where I'll be set up until I check my cams just before season opens. Its looking good this year.
I made sure my mineral sites were legal by removing any chunks of the mineral blocks and mixing more salt, water and dirt together where nothing was visible. Should be enough to last through deer season. All I need is Sept 12th to get here.
No not that, its better.
I lost 27 ac about the time the housing industry crashed because it was about to sell. It didnt sell, its right down the street and I got it back.
Its a nasty cutover/hiding place. Done a walk about today and opened some previous shooting lanes.
This years looking better and better boys.
Just checked trail cams. I know some bucks will probably take off when they shed velvet but their all still here for now. Got a new one thats shown up. I'm kinda thinking the g 3 on left beam is laying on the main beam ? (1st 2 pics) I think its a funky typ 10 with a kicker ? Its not big but may make a decent challenge entry ? Caught a UFO buck going through my funnel late. (3rd pic) They all still have velvet too. Cant wait to spread that nasty deer disease. (Obsessive Bipolar Disorder)
