Bought a place there about 6 months ago, it will be our first season to hunt it, but I’m in.

I was in the stand Saturday, no rain in the Oakwood area until after dark. The deer were moving pretty good, no shooters this time tho.

Oh the mine. That's the one place you'll find the giants in this area.

I’ve been in the stand the past two days. I’ve seen crazy chasing action both mornings. I’ve got a few new bucks showing up as well. I couldn’t get a shot at a buck so this morning I took out a doe. Going back this weekend to hopefully get a buck.

The score was done by the books from b&c score card. The score is done gross and not net. Nets are for fishing and a deer doesn't need any deducts because he was perfectly symmetrical.

No. But I didnt take away 5" from the score on a deer because he broke a tine. If you cant be productive and contribute to this please stay of the thread.

ETX REAPER, thatís a great buck! Donít let all the naysayers bother you, some people get there kicks putting down other peoples deer.

I definitely think you were right on with the score.
