Redhawk, my club has fines for small bucks too which is why I?ve held off. I had a nice 2.5 year old 6 point in range Saturday but passed because I don?t want to pay a fine.

Sixshot, do it your way and every deer is a trophy. Great story.

Well I tried the hold out for a better deer for several years only to see them leave property I had permission to hunt and get slaughtered by adjoining neighbors. So I started biscuit and gravy hunting. If the deer would look better on a plate with biscuits and gravy I kill it, if not, I let it walk.

Our acorn crop is almost non existent this year.
From the house I saw 8 slick heads, a big 4 point, and a 10 point along with around 8 Gobblers this morning. I saw the last deer at the pond getting a drink at 10:30.
We passes a freshly planted bright Green field going to town at 2:05 PM that was full of deer. I estimated 20+. We passed a neighbors field going home that we counted 14 deer in and spotted more after that. If I had glassed the field it might have had 20 also.

Bucks of any size got pretty scarce after the first weekend of deer season here. It is nice to be seeing them again. We are down to a couple weeks to Alternative Weapons Season.
