Can’t wait. Just got mine back from the taxi today. Next giant will be with a bow. No way I’d shoot a doe with him. Can’t wait for LDP’s.

Axis have taken over our place. Good thing and bad thing -

I had this buck and two others come out with over 20 does. Shot a doe - ( owner wants them thinned)

Yes she was with baby (inside) - I have never shot one that wasnít out of many I have shot - they are always bred - I look every time. Just a matter of how far. Sad part of it but part of it.

Thatís a stud! Those caudals are awesome! Looks like heís already tipping out in velvet. Ours were just growing headgear at the end of WT season. Heading back for a work weekend in two weeks. Curious to see what their growth looks like now. Goodluck and I hope to see an LDP soon!

Well since you asked . Trey just turned 20 couple weeks ago!

After graduating HS Valedictorian and receiving pitcher of the year in baseball .... he accepted a scholarship to Howard Payne in Brownwood and is in the Honors Academy Program there and Pitches for the Yellow Jackets. COVID shut them down last year but he pitched in several games doing very well and made his first start and went 4 full Innings giving up no earned runs coming out with 5-1 lead and told to be ready to pitch a lot more. Little did he know.... season was shut down next day. He has enough hours to be a jr but for bb is still a freshman and they already announced this season wonít count either for eligibility even if played out completely

More importantly he has maintained a 4.0 through his first 3 semesters making the President's List He has now started his 4th We are very proud - I know it is hard to do honors academy program and baseball and a GF . Thanks.

Kateís a Jr. Pitches on a D1/d2 level already , super fast and power hitter. Already has some offers and has a huge future if keeps her head on straight. She is currently #2 in her class We have been Blessed!

Thanks for sharing those Deer and family photos.
Sounds like you and mom did things right in raising those two
4.0 by itself would be great
I live close to brownwood and will look forward to seeing him play.

Good luck with that buck.
