Local talent

The second and third image are the same buck.

Nice to see what is running around the neighborhood. 

Now, if I can just get them to wander onto my property in firearm seasons in the daylight when I am carrying a firearm...


  1. What do you think one of those boys would weigh on the hoof ? In Texas a big'un would go 90-100 pounds. We envy your big deer up north. How many are you allowed to take in a season ?

    1. A year-and-a-half old doe runs about 120. Another year adds about twenty pounds.

      On-the-hoof I guess the big bucks run about 200. After field-dressing most will run 160-170. The pile of guts look like more than 40 pounds but lungs are fluffy.

      And buck that weighs 200 after field-dressing is a monster.
