    And here's an updated pic of the one on the left (above). This buck is going to be a TOUGH one to kill. Earlier in the year we were getting pics of him regularly, but here the last month or so he's been hit or miss. Finally the last 2-3 nights he seems to be coming back around and...oh wow! I thought he'd be big but...wow!

    great buck, don't think he will have a lot of tines/points, but will have a big frame and the tines he will have should be impressive

    as for him being hit or miss , I would just say that is mroe likely due to the food source has changed a ton in the past few weeks, making him be else where maybe more than where he was before

    but come early season, where ever he is eating he will be very patterenable more or less,
    they tend to be rather stuck to patterens that run on food, come first few days or even weeks of archery
    soybeans being a big draw early, like clovers and other soft greens
    good luck and please keep posting pic's as he grows
    good to see them take shape, or I think so!

    I was kinda thinking the same thing as far as food sources changing. I have my spring plot planted, 3 different clovers, rape, brassica, and turnips. Soon I plan on starting to get ready to working on my fall plot, try to have it planted by the end of next month, it has soybeans, rye, turnips, oats, all kinds of good stuff. Hopefully it'll turn out good and keep them coming in when all the other food is hard to find. And I actually checked my cameras today and saw what had to be his son. Same exact frame, not quite as big but still a shooter for sure and he's an 8 pointer. I'll try to get a pic on here.

    Update to the nice 10 pointer and his big brow tine buddy! I watched them walk out at 9 o'clock last night, fed around the plot/feeder until after dark. I've seen the 10 a few times right before dark but finally got a good look at the "big nose" brow tine 8. Let me tell ya...wow! He's gotta be pushing 2 feet wide! Hopefully here in a couple hours I'll be watching them again. I got my main stand hung last weekend, have a lil trimming left to do but should work out perfect...as long as I play the wind right and what not. They were both standing 23 yards in front of it...eww-weee! Come on September!
