Deer season is now over in GA and habitat season begins!
I spent the evening preparing my tree seedling buckets and making some other preparations for the work ahead.
I went down yesterday and set several traps. This morning I went back to find two possums and my first tote had been caught! A big male. I am no pro trapper but I was proud that I was at least successful!
I checked the trail cameras to see what deer made it through season.
I was very happy to see the big 11 point made it.
I hunted that deer hard this season and he will be on my mind a lot over the next eight months until bow season.
I got a lot of night pictures of him but only two daytime pics. One on Dec 3rd and one on Jan 2nd.
So now the fun begins and the list of things to do is long. Going to be moving a few stands, improving roads, widening food plots, planting trees and doing some controlled burns. Fun, Fun, Fun! I'm hoping I can get the bulk of everything done by end of turkey season in mid May.
NICE buck. I know you are glad to provide good habitat for that one. Those daytime sightings are rare with bucks in my area also.
We hope to set some traps for raccoons after season. Need to thin the herd.
