As many of you know I pretty much eat, sleep, and drink beer, haha, seriously though, I do have deer on the brain all the time. I’ve been running my minerals all winter and spring, put my food plots in the spring, and placed my cameras out a little over a month ago, all to just get a glimpse of a shooter buck to go after this fall. I was pretty dang excited to check cameras this year considering all the nice bucks I had on camera this past January, but to my dismay buck sightings, well good buck sightings have been pretty poor so far this year. Not sure if it’s because of all the rain, and the browse is so plentiful, or the big guys just aren’t moving that much. Either way it’s been quite hard to get a picture of a nice one until today. I was checking cameras early this morning so I could hopefully see something worth while before I leave for vacation, and I’ll be damn I wasn’t let down. Got a pic of a great 8 point buck I know from last year. He has certainly blown up, and put on a ton of mass, and is certainly worthy of pursuit this year. I decided to name him King Crab because of the big claw looking left main beam. Here are a few pictures of King Claw with his bachlor group. Not a bad back of deer if you ask me, lots of good genes in the mix.
So what do you think? I’m thinking he’s going to be looking pretty good come September 6. I do know there are better bucks down there and my hopes are still high I can get on one of them before it’s all said and done. Either way having a really great buck like this to pursue makes deer hunting such an enlightment as it really recharges my soul. Please be sure to share with us any nice bucks you have on camera, we’d love to see them. I have a few special words for this upcoming hunting season;
SHOOT EM WHEN YOU SEE EM!!!!!!!!!!
