Saw a NICE 10 point Monday morning!!

2 posts in this topic

My normal early morning routine this time of year is to start the coffee and then watch and count deer as they're leaving my food plots. Counted 6 does leaving one plot and then saw three more deer leaving the other plot, my wife picked them with the spotting scope and thought one was a buck. I set up the scope to catch them when they crossed an opening and the leader of the three was a nice ten point, long tines, wider than the ears!!! Not real heavy massed but a nice tall tined buck!!! Hope he survives the cars and coyotes until next year!!!! Then it will be interesting to see what he develops into!!!

Interestingly enough he was traveling with another small buck. The third deer was a doe or could have been a buck that had shed already. Also interesting that he didn't follow the path of the does, he went by some tree lines and into some woods, more cover - thats probably why hes has survived this long.

2 nights ago I had an exceptional 9 pt in the backyard.

I have seen hime one time in person as he corssed the road near our house a month ago. I have him on trail cam a couple times.

He was with a smaller 8pt and a doe as well.

Pretty impressive on the body size when standing next to a couple other deer. He is gonna be an absolute brute of a deer if he makes it to next year.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
