    GTOHunter....

    While in Infantry OCS at Ft. Benning Georgia in 1966 and in the process of becoming an "officer and a gentleman" I purchased my first GTO....a shiny new, red, 1966 convertible. The girls in Columbus Georgia, just outside Ft. Benning, liked the car. But then I found out I was going overseas and so I sold it. But two years later, upon returning to the states, I bought another new, 1968, GTO. The girls liked that one too..... ;-)

    A nice symmetrical eight. He has command presence. I'm hoping to get more photos of him closer to the camera.

    gdgros....

    Well I can't send him your way of course but as I've said before I may not pull the trigger on a good buck as there are many lesser bucks I could shoot. Bragging rights mean nothing to me. I'm just happy to have nice bucks roaming around my acreage.

    Ha ha....that doe, which is a new one, was really checking out that camera and my scent. That's a photo extracted from a video. I have one doe who is a permanent resident on my acreage and another doe that shows up now and then. The last time a doe was taken on my acreage was 10 years ago in 2006. I decided then not to shoot them anymore, wanting them around to attract bucks.

    Yes cooler weather would be nice....but....no colder than thirty degrees....no rain.... overcast skies, and a very light wind from the south would work for me in my location.

    I'm always especially cheerful this week....looking forward to opening day next Saturday and the campfire the night before. Here's a photo of a print I have hanging on a wall of my cabin and a poem that captures the spirit of the November deer camp.

    PALACE IN THE POPPLE

    It’s a smoky, raunchy boars’ nest
    With an unswept, drafty floor
    And pillow ticking curtains
    And knife scars on the door.
    The smell of pine-knot fire
    From a stovepipe that’s come loose
    Mingles sweetly with the boot grease
    And the Copenhagen snoose.

    There are work-worn .30-.30s
    With battered, steel-shod stocks,
    And drying lines of long johns
    And of steaming, pungent socks.
    There’s a table for the Bloody Four
    And their games of two-card draw,
    And there’s deep and dreamless sleeping
    On bunk ticks stuffed with straw.

    Jerry and Jake stand by the stove,
    Their gun-talk loud and hot,
    And Bogie has drawn a pair of kings,
    And is raking in the pot.
    Franks’ been drafted again as cook
    And is peeling some spuds for stew
    While Bruce wanders by in baggy drawers
    Reciting “Dan McGrewâ€.

    No where on Earth is fire so warm
    Nor coffee so infernal,
    Nor whiskers so stiff, jokes so rich,
    Nor hope blooming so eternal.
    A man can live for a solid week
    In the same old under-britches
    And walk like a man and spit when he wants
    And scratch himself where he itches.

    I tell you, boys, there’s no place else
    Where I’d rather be, come fall,
    Where I eat like a bear and sing like a wolf
    And feel like I’m bull-pine tall.
    In that raunchy cabin out in the bush
    In the land of the raven and loon,
    With a tracking snow lying new to the ground
    At the end of the rutting moon.

    That's a hole where I've added Deer Cain Black Magic at least once a year every year for quite some time now. You can see this same spot on the first page of this thread where the big eight is standing.

    This buck first came my way a year ago this month. Here's another video of him from that time period.
