    Another Chance

    Pulled my card a while back and found a pleasant surprise. This was my target buck that I called Splitter last season. Notice his split right brow tine and the split in his left ear. Looks like I'll probably be chasing him again this fall. Going to be fun watching him develop. My first photo is of him last September. The second photo is of him a month ago.

    I may be opinionated...but, my opinion is the only one that matters anyway.

    Man that's good to hear he made it through everything! Keep us posted on how he's doing til you are sitting behind him holding him up!!

    Sitting behind him is the idea. Making that happen is proving to be tough. I never layed eyes on this buck all last season. Hopefully this year works out a bit better.

    Definately the same buck. I had over 1000 photos of him last year. The split left ear is a dead giveaway. And the splitting right brow is another pretty positive sign of identification. We will see how well he develops by mid September.

    Nice deer he should get a bit heavier too this year i would think. I see you hunt away from where you live , do you leave your blinds out all season or set up as you hunt?

    I do almost all of my hunting on a small piece of property that I own. Unfortunately, my hunting area is over 50 miles from my home. I still manage to archery hunt this property 40 - 60 times per season. Almost all my stands are permanant box style stands. I do have two stands that are natural ground blinds and I will be hunting out of a pop up blind also at times this season. Every season I get to know this property and the deer living in the area a little better. I'm a hunter that prefers quality over quantity, so I pass quite a few deer every season. Here are a few more nice bucks that were hanging around my property last season. The second photo is a good photo of my target buck from last season.
