More Deer

Because I have been doing nothing of interest...junk piles seem to be taking up my days lately, all I have is more pictures of the bucks that taunt me as I drive into my mom's yard each day.

This is my spotter...
The hard-working ranch dog is ever alert and keeping his eyes peeled for big bucks for me to shoot...with the camera. I never did get around to getting my deer license or Megan's this year. Of course, mom would rather we thin out some of the does than take the big bucks. The hunters will pay for the bucks, not for the does. I'm really only interested in meat in the freezer, but Megan would like to have a big rack to hang on the wall.

This is the same buck as from the last post...

He is hot on the trail of a doe and could care less that I stopped to take his picture.


And then I saw this guy and got buck fever...
Can ya tell from the crappy pictures?...
I finally got him in focus and I was shaking hard enough to cut the top of his rack off...
Holy Crap...he is a big dude...
And by the time I could steady my hands, he was out of there...
Click on this picture and you will see just how wide and high his rack is. He may only be a 4X4, but his tines are unbelievable.

My mind has been wrapped around mundane projects that I would like to get whipped out before we get another big snow or the ground freezes solid, so bear with me as I might be pretty boring for another couple of days or so.

OK...we are back now, and the boys are DROOLING all over my keyboard...lol!!!!

They want to know if they can go hunting at your mom's place!
I said that they can hunt, and I will ride! :)

Great pics again! Just amazing how they could care less you're there!

Good luck with the junk piles! I need to do that, just trying to get little cowgirl well. She has the virus that is going around!

Red Dog is so cute.

And dang those are some big bucks!! You must live in hunter's paradise!! We have deer here, but they look more like large great danes.
