This first buck is starting to become somewhat regular but only at 3-4 in the morning.





No idea who this deer was.



I'm guessing this is the deer than usually ran with the first buck. I've only had very vague pictures it was hard to tell much because he never came right up to the mineral hole. He is such a sissy I only got one good pic before a 2 year old pushed him off.

Rains are killing me for   buck pics,
  But think  this is the back side of the 10pt  I shared all the short video clips of a while back,
(brows are to short  and not wide enough to be brutus Wink)

I was kinda disappointed after a two and half week soak and only had 190 pics with only one night of my bigger three year olds.

Low brows. Never had a daylight picture of him at all last year as a two year old and none this year either.





This buck I never named but he was literally on every single check last year

Great pictures guys. Its been a rough summer for me and the cameras. Work has kept me on the road alot, when I am able to get up we have been having so much rain, I know its strange, but its true. I was up this past weekend and couldnt even get down to where the cameras are on the main place. On some of the leased ground the county has the roads all closed because of wash outs. I have never seen it this lush and green in early august. The deer dont have to move like they normally do. They can eat sleep and drink and the same 5 feet this summer. The cameras I have had at our feeders are showing nothing. The deer just dont want the feed , I shut them down this past weekend, feeding coons is about all they are doing. I did see a few good ones on the alflafa and in the milo, I am sure as November rolls around I will find one to go after. keep the pictures coming guys

Rainy summer here in NJ and everything is very green and lush!  I have the regular group of young bucks every day in the backyard at the feeder.  Have been running cams all summer with only a few of the bigger bucks showing last month.  Sunday evening I caught a glimpse of a really wide buck up in the hollow.  Thought he passed a cam at the mineral lick but the cam revealed nothing.  Got another one to check on the ridge today!  I look at my bows hanging on the wall every day and get depressed!  My shoulder hurts so bad, I'm afraid to try pulling one back.  Might be just a muzzleloader year for me.  I'm not going crossbow til I get really old!  Love the pics guys, thank you.  I hope to have some to contribute tonight!

I guess i will post a few from this past week... I had pretty much every deer that i know of on camera. Dont really know why they were moving so good but i aint complaining lol. finally got some good pictures of that bigger 8 point. Definitely a deer i will shoot. There are two 8 points this year that are the targets unless somthing else shows up out of the blue that i cant pass. 



The had a picture of the other big 8 but he only came up to the camera for one picture and of course this little bitty 8 point blocked the view Mad


Here is the only picture i got of him that you can kinda see him. Its blurry but you can compare his one side to his head and see he is nice lol


The Sticker buck or as Willy (CW) named him "State From Jake Farm" is about done. He didnt finish as good as i thought he would so he will get a pass this year. 


Baby Toes. Or as willy named him "Baby Leg" lol!. Didnt get but a couple of blurry pics of him. But he aint done yet. I think his messed up side is still trying to to do somthing. 



Im naming this buck "Photoshop". Cause every time i get pictures of him they are really good pictures lol.



And then OverBite and that other buck i made a thread about a couple days ago. Had pictures of him early this year and this is the only other pics iv had of him...

I think our crazy winter really put a hurting on our antler growth...but we get what we get...

I thought I had a one horn growing but it looks like it actually broke its beam off just past the brow tine...
His body looks like Rock Star...


This one has potential this year...


This one could use another year or two but I don't know if he will make it!  He is in this area every single day and Big L likes him! Cool

 Well  I am  glad to hear your luck at   capturing  bucks  this  year is  just as  bad as  our"s, This  has been the worst year  every,   for  finding the   good bucks, did   get  picture   last week of a  decent one,   Man it is just  to gosh darn bushy  around here,  to get two far into the timber with camera's,  and   all the darn  rain's have kept  me from even getting  to  many of my favorite creek set ups,
 Had  a friend up on the   Adams and  Hancock Co line  that found  a dead  buck in his  foodplot, he said he smelt  another one  dead  but   could not  find it,, I can not even   imagine  we would have to   worry about  EHD this year, but   thats  what  he thinks might be happening up his way, Crying or Very sad
 Great   pic's   from  all you Kentucky  guy's,  keep em coming

I've been going back and forth whether I have two bucks and one is a little bit bigger or am I looking at a two week growth spurt??

It would be so much easier if I had my Red 40 here rather than my M8 but I don't...Do you think this is 13 days of growth of two differs bucks?  The space between the tines on the 7/26 buck is mostly what is giving me any question.

That 8/6 buck is a stud for around here! IO hope he keeps growing Arrow

Yeah I'm hoping to  hit the shed hunting lottery and find that left side unbroken. More than likely  he will bust those extra beams off though.

Here is a big guy that I found a couple weeks ago! I have seen him twice and had the camera with me the 2nd time. Unfortunately due to the fading light and my poor camera skills I couldn't get very good pics of him. Here are the best two I got.


This one is really blurry but it kind of shows how wide he is. Notice how clear those blades of grass are on in front of the deer(aka my poor camera skills!)lol!!

Low brows finally came back. First buck over a year and a half old I have had on camera in a month and a half. Hopefully when their patterns change atleast one of them or one of the other bucks I know survived starts showing up more.
