    We get dogs on camera occasionally. Thankfully so far they tend to just pass through and have not become regulars.

    So, this happened at about 3 this morning.

    Which of course led to this.

    And naturally led to this!

    We’re still about 2 feet from being completely full. Enjoy your Labor Day everyone!!!

    Though I don’t have a picture of the weeds, we had them. After I planted, we got 2 big rains. After the first my brassicas and oats came on strong. It took the second big rain and I was covered in pigweed... No worries. I sprayed that half with Butyrac.

    I sacrificed the brassicas, but left the oats growing fine and hopefully any clover that had germinated.

    The other 2/3 of my plot is a different story. No compost = a clean plot.

    As usual, the boys of summer are becoming less regular on camera. The does are continuing to hammer the mineral which holds promise for later this year. Here is the only new picture of the wide 10. I feel he is old enough to be a target this year.
    [​IMG]

    I have 2 years of sheds from this 8 point. If he can survive the outfitter next door, he could be great next year!
    [​IMG]

    And finally a stud young 10. He has the genetics to be special. Unfortunately he is young and probably dumb, and therefore unlikely to survive said outfitter...

    And here is what it is all about for me. The old man teaching the wife how to run the tractor. I wouldn’t trade this life for anything!

    We had this pretty guy show up on my foodplot. If he is the buck I think he is, he should be 4-1/2 this year. I’d give him a pass. Unfortunately he too will probably get shot on the outfitter next door....

    He hasn’t walked in front of me yet. Haha! I’ve never shot a deer with my bow. I hope he doesn’t tempt me...

    Isn't that the truth... She said she needs a little more wheel time before she tries to meet productivity. Ha! I put her on the 4-wheeler with the cultipacker this year. :)

    Kansas It's better to wear out than to rust out.
    Virgin bowhunter? I say "if it's brown it's down"! I've know quite a few guys who took up bow hunting and were hung up on antler size for their first deer... it seldom turns out productive for them. I recommend to just go shoot something and have fun with it. (plus it lets some of those almost really big bucks live a yr longer) :)
    Good luck this winter!

    I hear ya, Cat. I only took up bow hunting to be able to spend more time on stand. I have always been able to fill the freezer late doe season. I just enjoy being outside when it’s cold.
