Nice one…

Wouldn’t mind taking this one out.   

Pigs THICK.  I guess they are here to stay.  One solo boar 3-4 years ago.  Next year you’d get a pic of 1-2 adolescents.  Last year a few groups.  All night time.  This year tons of them 24 hrs a day coming and going.   I guess I’ll have a new hobby next spring. 

Super dry here Which may have something to do with it. I also wonder if all the timbering, which removed most of the bears, something to do with it.  It’s been a pretty direct relationship from what I’ve seen in terms of bear reduction and pig proliferation.  I wonder if bears Do a number on piglets.  I bet they do.   I know for a FACT they get after fawns… I have evidence and I don’t care what others say.

    Chunky hogs, and a really nice buck.

    Same buck daytime!   Gotta love new neighbors.   I don’t care what folks say, most bucks don’t leave a pretty small area.  The under they get, the smaller that area becomes.   Come rut, some deer will roam, but most really don’t…. They are just more active while we hunt.  

    Anyway, this guy showed up ONE time last year at midnight in mid Feb.   clearly I’m very outside his home range.  

    This year I have new neighbors from down south.  I talked to one of them a few weeks back, and they are setting up stands in all sanctuaries.  

    Hahaha.  Score for me!

    May be the same deer but also might not be. 

    Curious what makes you think that it is?

    Either way, looks like a nice one. Good luck in your hunt for him!

    Mature bucks pretty low density.  I could be wrong, but that profile fence buck showed up right when I got new neighbors last year.  

    I’ve never pushed deer off my little spot.  

    New 8 last year with amazing Symmetry.  I have stayed very low pressure Since last December.  This year a New To Me 10 Is walking around at night and in the daytime.  

    I don’t have a normal customer that could’ve turned into him. Other than that random picture last year.

     Feel like same critter.   Could be wtomg.   I hope that I am wrong!!!!
