Early Bucks
« on: April 26, 2015, 08:00:12 AM »
As I finished my walk-a-bout this morning these three guys game out to enjoy breakfast on last years new seeding. You can't see the nubs in this pic. The big guy still on the edge of the tree line had about 3" nubs already. If you look close on the right side you can see my ground blind. I think it is positioned perfectly. At least until they start the rub. Yep the blind has gorilla tape on it from last fall's attack.

I have a yearling that comes into the yard quite often. He had itty bitty knobs poking out.  His mommy and sissy come out with him, too.  That's how I know it's the same one.

Last Friday, while turkey hunting, a group of 5 young bucks were feeding out on the field.  They were moving slowly in my direction, and I wondered how close they would get, as I could feel the breeze on my back.  Finally, one of them got to about 60 yds away, and all of a sudden it was like he hit a brick wall.  His nose was up in the air, looking right at me, and I knew he had scented me.  the other 4 bucks seemed unconcerned until he snorted and started running away, then they all took off after him.  It's surprising how flighty they can be at times.  it's always fun to watch them.

  Friday evening about 7pm at the hunting cabin I had 4 small bucks walk into the yard. 2 spikes a fork and a 6 point. The foodplots are in and the minerals are out so hopefully they grow. Even small they were fun to watch.
