Real neat buck. He has some characterHad a good season again on the old "Crick" hill. Rutting activity was still cooking the first week of the season. Scrapes were being kept open and does were still being chased. I put in the time on the stand. Mid day activity was high,and the deer were on their daily patterns. Where my stand is located,hunter pressure is low. No one traverses the cricket hill. It's a huge expanse of devils club and brier. I'm watching an old gas well site and access road. The only opening in the red brush for hundreds of yards. At 11:45 on Fri,a doe came out of the brush. Obviously ragged,mouth open and being pursued. I heard the grunts and saw the rack threading through the red brush behind her. He got clear and there was no question he was a shooter.
Pretty tickled with him. As nice an eight point as I could hope for.
Thank you! No sir, our camp is on the Alabama side. Not like the Delta but decent genetics. There is a bad one horn problem as you can tell from my wife's deer. They kill a few every year with 4 or 5 on one side and a spike or just a fork on the other side. This is one my other nephew killed the other day.Nice deer I love the tine length on your buck. MS can grow some nice bucks. You hunting in the Delta?
