Deer Season, December 24, 2012

Well, the world didn’t end on the 21st there weren’t any cataclysms, in fact, nothing unusual happened, around here at least, but deer season moved one day closer to its end.  You know, everyone got their pants in a wad over the Mayan calendar and its predictions, as usual end of world predictions were baloney, the only end we’ll ever see is when Jesus Christ returns and what a wonderful day that will be!

Back to deer season, Tim, shot his second doe yesterday morning. He and I talked for a while, and no, I didn’t get a picture of it, because my camera was at Patrick’s house, I left it there after our very unsuccessful duck hunt!

Last week a friend of ours wife, hunting on a neighbors place right down the County Road, bagged a nice buck that scored 140 B&C points.  That made me to scurry through all of my deer pictures and “shots” from the game cams to see if I’d ever recorded the buck.  No, I never did and no, I don’t have a picture of it to post, but I’ll call the paper tomorrow to see if I can get one.

Then, there’s a 10 pointer, minus brow tines and 2 points on his left main beam.  Theses were broken off sometime prior to the 12th of this month because here’s a “shot” of him on that date, then another on the 18th.
There’s still a couple of nice bucks running around looking for doe and the following shows the ones that have come by cams.  This buck, on the 18th visited the water trough around 9:30 PM then almost midnight swung by the feeder.  From the looks of his horns, no points broken off, he’s won all of his fights!
Then, on the 20th this 8, with short brow tines, the same on that tried to pick a fight with my big 8 and was kicking up dust all around him, maybe enticed another doe at the water trough.

Two more weeks of the season and I sure hope these big ones make it to next year!
