Nice and Wide.....great looking Buck for sure! :bowing:
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..... ;-)
Somehow the youngster managed to get his mug in this picture too...
A nice symmetrical eight. He has command presence. I'm hoping to get more photos of him closer to the camera.
He's on alert ,,,,looking at something
Rmp send him my way nice buck
He might be looking for the other buck in the photo above....he was in the area about the same time.
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.
You have a couple of window lickers too .....
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.
RMP so far we have a few nice ones on camera nothing to brag about yet but they will do looking forward to vacation next week and get out in the woods hope they weather changes some down there and starts to cool off
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
Itâ€™s a smoky, raunchy boarsâ€™ 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 thatâ€™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.
Thereâ€™s a table for the Bloody Four
And their games of two-card draw,
And thereâ€™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.
Franksâ€™ been drafted again as cook
And is peeling some spuds for stew
While Bruce wanders by in baggy drawers
Reciting â€œDan 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, thereâ€™s no place else
Where Iâ€™d rather be, come fall,
Where I eat like a bear and sing like a wolf
And feel like Iâ€™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.
I've not seen this buck before. Here's a good close-up.
No antlered deer to be found....but....this critter has a nice coat....
Whats the black patch he's standing over ? burnt spot or salt lick ?
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.
This buck showed up two days ago.
