1st Buck of the season

Postby DeerCamp » Fri Apr 10, 2009 5:38 am

So my mom came home today, from her walk as she does every morning. However today she told me that she saw a nice buck. She said that the antlers were about 4"-5" already! She walks everyday and has a good eye for deer. I was happy to hear she already saw a buck this season, hope to see one soon myself.. Anyone eles been seeing any?

The wife and I were coming home from dinner last night and I saw two herds of I think 8 to 12 deer in each herd. I was driving so I couldn't tell if any were bucks and my wife could not care less. But I did finally see some..

Nothing yet DeerCamp.  Seems way to early to be seeing even buds of antlers.
Usually see a few during Turkey season, but even then it is the later hunt.

Still finding a few sheds, 4 Thursday and one spike today. Most bucks here are showing, saw one large bodied buck with 2 inch nubs already.  He should be a peach this fall if the cars leave him alone!

Really???  Bucks already.

My camera has been out for a month now.  Primarily scouting my leased property for Turkeys, but a few bucks in the viewer wouldn't be a bad thing.  I haven't touched it since I put it out March 12th.
I had 7 bucks there last firearm season that I let walk.  Hoping a few of them made it through.  I know the neighbor didn't take any of them.  We are both trying a little mini QDM.  Only about 240 acres but all backed by a fairly deep river.

Gonna pull the cam on Thursday.  Can't wait.....

I found a beautiful 5 pt. shed on Easter morning and them moved a group of deer out of a swale.  One of the bucks was still carrying his right side (his first rack).

Well, I looked through all 328 pics on my trail camera that had been out since March 12th.

Good news....tons of deer.  Didn't see visible antlers, a few short buds.  Nothing spectacular.

Bad news....only two (TWO) pics of turkeys.  Was really hoping for two every day....grrrrr!
