Season 9, episode 2

Nope. Not mine. Or Dad's. We struck out again this past weekend. We saw coyote and bear droppings (the bear was really cool because it was on the path to our sky condo). Dad was able to jump a few does but no bucks. No scrapes or rubs - are any of you seeing this as well? I am hoping that with a full moon on Thursday, rain all day Thursday and it getting colder here, that come Friday, I have a picture to post that is actually mine. The above deer was shot by my brother in law - 8 points and 225lbs. He got is at 8am on Saturday.

  3. We've killed (3) bucks this year so far but they've all had terrible deformed racks! They have a single spike on the left and then 3-4 points on the right. I am thankful for the meat and these guys definitely needed to be taken out of the herd.

    Hang in there! Your time is coming!

  4. We found a deer like that a couple years ago. My brother in law is a biologist and said when that happens, the deer has been injured on the opposite side of the single spike. Weird, I know!
