The amount of big bucks he is seeing is stoopid. Most all of us would settle for any of them. He and his dad both have that one deer they are both set on. Wind has been iffy.

My mother in law watched a buck tending a doe on Wednesday in Austin Co...looking forward to next weekend, hoping to get my son on one of them that I've let walk the last few years. One is on the downhill slide, great mass but he's lost some tine length. Riley doesn't care, he's just itching to get after them I don't know that he'll top the buck he killed in Weches last year for a while, he started high on the rung for his first buck

What's the drama? Someone says it's a HF deer or that it didn't score what you think it does? Who cares? F'em.

Some of us just want to see big bucks!

I haven't read all the posts because there are so many.

Are you hunting over corn, or a food plot?

I think he uses corn put out by hand along with encouraging some natural vegetation, acorns and browse. You should really take the time to read all GG's post, it's pretty awesome!
