Hey Art, Two buck pics from my property!

The first one my brother shot.
The second one, I watched in my crosshairs. I passed on him thinking he had great potiental for next year.

I'd had to shot the one you passed on. I don't get to see many like that but now and then. Nice deer....

Good pictures, Capp. Smart choice letting the buck grow as he should be very nice next year.

I hope it was a good choice.
If he stays on our place (1200 ac.) he is safe, but the next ranch over fires a shot about every day.

Wow, those are nice - I'd be hard-pressed to let that one go - but like you say, if he can survive to next year, he should be a bruiser.

Really nice! The one you passed on looks like a nice young buck. He oughta be a worthwhile shooter, next year. He'll most likely have heavier beams, and they'll be a bit darker. Depending on rain and suchlike, maybe wider and a couple more points.

Great pics capp! Especially with the change in the weather pattern. Looks like we'll have a wet spring, and that should really put on some mass next year. BTW, any word yet on the openings on your place? Send me a PM.

Great Deer...
