 Still trying to get a pic of the ones getting into the garden!  they just about wiped out one full row of okra, first time they really did this much damage,  no need to mention the butter beans, I did my part for feeding the herd this year,
only have a few chain saws I'm not suppose to use, but will at times, one dog Dolly, pretty good dog, just not sure what for yet,  working on getting the gardening back in order, and kinda thinking on maybe a small bbq bizz,  thinking about it,

Have you ever encountered such a nice brown color on a set of antlers?   They look waxed.

Have you ever encountered such a nice brown color on a set of antlers?   They look waxed.

We had some like that here about 10-12 years ago when some of the Red Pine trees were about 2-3 inches in diameter!

They were polishing and sparing with the small trees!

First horns I've seen during the daytime since a few back in June.

Before 8 am this morning.  Hope that is a good sign for some shooting.

Do any of these dress out to over 100 pounds?  Looks like I could put one under each arm and stroll back to the truck :D :D :D  I've had to half some here to get them home, although I did think about eating them where they lay, the snow gets pretty deep there!  BWW
