    Nope, not there. Even the flood of 93 didn't get to that point.

    Sully... I'm not sure that these are the healthiest deer you've ever seen...

    Well, the doe can't run outside the fence either, I am sure they all got bred first go-round. :D No need for horns once all the doe are preggers... :D

    Bred or in-bred?
    :D

    Entirely possible that they arent getting sufficient nutrients, unless that fellar puts mustard on the hot dogs before he feeds them.

    I find sheds about every year in December while rabbit hunting. One of the biggest sets Ive found was a week before Christmas. They were laying right in his bed. But, I'd agree with you that most are in March. I've seen deer still packing in April and some deer out to their ears in Velvet by the end of April. I don't claim to know much about antler casting other than when they fall, they fall.

    Went to watch the deer and 2 guys in a golf cart inside the fence cruised by, then a security car came by, turned around at the corner, stopped an asked where to get cheap food for the deer. Another vehicle pulled up next to us and they got out to take pictures, in the mean time we decided to pick up other peoples trash. Then here comes a St. Charles truck with 2 guys in it. They stopped and watched us pick up trash, turned around n left.....an 8 & 10 still have antlers, 2 others did not...

    Just drove by and saw a couple guys in the brush. Anyone recognize him? He said Oak Creek was booked.
