    Showed that picture and some of two other good deer on my lease to my 11 year old grandson...he offered to come and kill them for me :D. That's him in my avatar pic with one he shot from my favorite stand last youth weekend.

    I saw 2 bucks in my tree line a week ago. 3 days later I saw 6 doe and younger deer in the tree line.
    I bought a deer block and 2 turkey blocks @ $8 at the auction. I'll get a salt block when I get back home.

    This doe, and another doe with fawn, are almost pets. They hang around and don’t show much fear of us, even when we’re talking. My four year old got within ten yards of this one on a previous occasion.

    We were getting out of the family mini-van, all three of my kids, wife and I talking. I happened to have my camera on me and took these pictures, I got several of her standing there looking at us but they are all pretty much identical. So, I only posted the one.

    When the rut starts these’ll be my bait deer.

    20170502_190027.jpg Got these over the years. The left and center were 3 1/2 y.o., 19 1/2 " spread. The right was a 2 1/2 y.o. 19 1/4" spread.
    Yes, would've liked them grow another year or two. However, where I hunt, if I pass it up and it hops the fence someone else will kill it.
