My brother was able to get the old 8pt. He dressed out at 144lbs. He is a buck that we have pictures of going on 4 years and we though he was a 3.5yr old back when we first saw him (picture at the bottom).

Here are some pictures from last weekend.
3-acre food plot hasn't done well without any rain. That being said, there is still some elbon rye growing here and there. Hopefully we can get some moisture soon

Does in 3-acre field. They were eating something because they grazed in the field for nearly 30-minutes.

The first evening I saw a doe fawn try to jump our north fence and she got hung up in the top two strands of wire. I walked over to her and put my jacket over her head and held her tight against my legs until she calmed down and thankfully she calmed down fairly quickly. I was then able to lift her up and get her untangled. I would have cut the wire but I didn't have any wire cutters so I had to try something. She ran away without a limp. They are tough!
