    Well? How did everybody do this year?

    This is typical of what I saw. I walked up behind a hay bale with my horses to get this shot.

    Well? How did everybody do this year?

    I didn’t harvest anything. All the bucks were 3 1/2 or younger. Pretty frustrating since I let that same size walk every year before. Wish I knew what was happening to them. Didn’t even get any good ones on camera. All that said, I did see lots and lots of deer. Still had meat from last year, so...

    Another season has come and gone

    They go by faster the older I get. I’ll leave my cameras out a few more weeks. I sure hope a lot of those nice young bucks will give me some excitement next year!

    First public land deer

    Thanks. I enjoy doing it. I’ve seen a couple of cool things in the process, like the lead between the eye sockets from one of last year’s kills, and the hole in the base of the eye socket from this year’s that was evidently the result of battle since I found the antler fragments in that eye. The...

    Honestly, I boiled it twice this time because I ran out of gas. I probably should have had it hotter to make the tissue loosen up quicker. If you do it too long, the bones get brittle and teeth loose. Try to scrape it free of as much tissue as you can before you boil.

    Second chance!

    That certainly was meant to be! Congratulations to your young man! A fine fine buck for sure. Enjoy each moment. He will grow up too fast. You are making wonderful memories for both of you. So happy he got that second chance!!!

    There really should be more headings under “after the harvest” or a section for mounts or taxidermy, etc....... Got my head boiled. Now for some bleach.
