Default Annual Neighborhood Bucks Thread (3rd edition)

Figured with the cool weather and the bucks running here it's time to get the yearly thread going. Will usually be using a Sony a6000 with a f4 70-200 lens.

I have about 5 spots throughout the San Antonio area I'll hit over the next 1-2 months to snag photos of some of the bruisers that are safe from us hunters.

I started 45 mins later than I would've liked today but oh well.

You guys sure make me miss 'home'. Thornberry Dr on 1179 split our family property. I hunted those deer from 1980 to 2008. We backed up to Austin Colony. Won Los Cazadores biggest 7pt from right there.

Well he didn’t get that big for being stupid. Austin’s colony has some nice ones for sure. Have you seen the 130” 7 pointer that was killed on a neighboring property a few years back?

Hitting up another neighborhood this evening for a bit

There's one bruiser in particular I'm hoping to see.

170ish is my guess on him

Well this evening wasn't much. Saw one of the target bucks but he was 100 yards out so nothing much I can do there. Another nice 10 with a kicker on his right G2 was between me and a fence getting me with the focus (which I'm having hell with lately).

But here's a few

This was from this past August, North San Antonio just off the loop. We rented a house for a week with family and these were just 2 of many deer that hung out in the neighborhood. Few shakes of the corn bucket, throw it down 10 feet away and they came running! I have video too!

This thread makes me wonder why I pay for a lease to hunt on. I think I have gotten to the point where I might rather just look at and take pictures of animals. Spend time with friends and family and have the deer camp experience.

Great Pictures!

So I don't see any protein feeders around. These deer have grown some amazing antlers without the supplement of protein feeders.... Amazing.

I could show you the trees a few hundred yards off Thornberry where I had tree stands and killed an awful lot of deer. They're backyards now. In fact, at the back of the new subdivision where there is a creek and what will now be green belt, there is a game tamer in the top of a monster evergreen tree. The tree had grown around it and there was no way it was coming down. My dad was born there in 1941. Back then it was waaayy out in the country.

I saw this one yesterday in Lago Vista when I was out there doing an appraisal. Lago is covered up with deer, however you very rarely see a decent buck.
