 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

It's curious to me on how antler colors vary. I've taken bucks that lived their whole life in a cedar swamp in the UP that were the color of Bibby's picture. I've got a nice shooter that I've been seeing around my home that has antlers the color of white chalk.

Last Sunday, he ran across my driveway as I was driving out at 2 in the afternoon. Tonight, I nearly hit him in the road, as I was slowing to turn in the driveway. I've had people hitting me up at the local restaraunts and our High School football games, that have seen him at night and want to hunt my yard.

Thanks!  I enjoy seeing them out on the property and looking for sheds in the spring since they aren't really hunted (no hunting on our watershed property and limited hunting on adjacent land).  This camera is hanging close to the boundary with some land that will be getting hunted this weekend  :D

Was out this morning and it was "just" past nocturnal time when a buck walked by.
So far, this is what I have. (will go out on the trail in about an hour to see what is at the end of it).

I usually observed that the color of the antlers varied by the amount of sun light exposure. In other words, habitat. :-\.
I guess diet can affect it too. Maybe someone will elaborate.
Back to the subject. Those nocturnal bucks are slick. Best chance is when their in RUT.

 I believe it is habitat.  But also the sap content of the trees they rub, maple makes a dark color on the antlers too.

I call this one 1 and a quarter. Lol.
He would have been a really nice wall hanger. Should be even better next year.

Good pic vt,  a few years ago I got to watch an 8 point put up with a lil spiker, it was hilarious, not much of a fight though, the big one just touched the lil fellows horn and somehow the lil guy just knew better, the big guy just politely followed him out of the area :D   
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,

These are my favorite deer, and they eat good too.

  
Retired to the ranch, saw, and sell solar pumps.

BW.
Pictures can be deceiving.
Some of these boys I'm sure are in the 160# plus range dressed.
I'm in good shape and struggle dragging them boys out of the woods.
Lately we have been lucky and can get a quad pretty close to the last couple we shot.  8) 8)
