Thanks, I am always trying hard to learn as much as I can from consistently successful hunters.

I am just starting to learn about aging by tooth wear and I just started keeping the jaw bones from my deer this year. The 10 point was from a couple years ago and the biologist at the check station pulled the jaw and said he was only 2.5 years old. The 3 racks in the center I killed this year and I am almost positive they are (from left to right) 4.5, 3.5 and 2.5.

Food source is tough. Acorns are obviously hit hard when they are dropping (mostly live oaks and water oaks where I hunt). Palmetto berries are very highly preferred when they are ripe. Pond apples if they are present in the swamps. Areas that back up to groves, deer LOVE oranges, I mean they eat them WHOLE believe it or not. Sod fields are magnets for deer as well. But if there are no groves or sod nearby they just browse. We have tons of thick undergrowth. They also eat the aquatic plants in the cypress/tupelo swamps and flag ponds.

Right now they are locked in my workshop/garage. I used to have them at a pro-shop that sponsored me, but they went out of buisness when the economy started to collapse.

The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

That buck up top, his right antler is growing around his face??? You have any better pics of that mount?

So what is the story on most of those bucks, I have checked out your site. All or majority were taken on public land?

I've always wanted to bring out all my mounts for a photo like buckmaster's but I would not need a barn. A small shed would do.

Seriously, it had to have taken hours just to set that photo up. Very impressive!

Anyway, how about the rest? Don't feel like they have to be big deer or even shoulder mounts. I'd like to see whatever you have and the way it's displayed. Even a wall of little antler plaques in a hunting cabin would be a cool photo.
