Good lookin' specimens there, Chance. We often get pics like that from our cams early in the year, but they seem to disappear come season.

Yes, there's always that fear that they'll run off closer to season. What it is is that they're expanding their ranges searching for does. Well, that works out for us because we have plenty of does around our hay farm. The fields and thick undergrowth in the woods provide the cover they like, while younger grasses and food plots provide the food they're after. My strategy has always been to try to find where the does have been and try to retain them, since the bucks will come looking for them in those areas prior to and during the rut.

Nice Buck's.
We just put out 2 cameras this week.
They are really hitting Minerals lately. I put out 2 salt blocks earlier in the Summer along with my Deer Mineral Mix. They had cleaned out the Mineral Mix, and all but a very small piece of one salt block.

We are thinking about putting out a cheap WalMart Gravity Feeder with some Deer Mix feed and Goat Wormer to help them out a little.

I have a 6" - 7" diameter Cedar tree behind my house about 150 yards down the ridge that gets worked over every year. I am planning on putting a camera on it this year and see what is rubbing it.

I have a cam on our pear trees that's been there 3 weeks that needs to be checked ... Will place another at an off-season supplemental feed station as well.

Those are some nice specimens you got roaming around!
