Let a spike walk
« on: November 15, 2019, 08:00:14 PM »
I watched him 20 yards from my stand today. Lousy spindly antlers not even matching. My Hunting all was within 5 minutes of when it said peak time today would be, practically on time when he snuck in. Got a nice video I posted to FB

Some of the smaller spikes around here have surprisingly large bodies. I will let them walk as well unless the last couple of days just for the meat. Not that I don't have two freezer full but I do like to give a lot of the meat away to friends and family that doesn't hunt but love venison!

I usually let them go unless it looks old then I might take him out.

Been the spike and a doe over a few days. Pulled the SD card and checked. Sure enough a big body tall4 pointer walked past my stand last Saturday afternoon about an hour before I got to the ladder stand
