Neighbor sent me this short video

I can't tell, is this what most folks would call "a shooter" or would you let it go and let it grow?

Click on the picture to see the movie.

I know you're kidding about not knowing if that's a shooter.

Notice that the deer clearly sees the IR emitters and is less than impressed. Many deer will avoid an area with conventional IR cameras after they get "zapped" a time or two.

Pass on him... too hard to tote out of the woods... Even gutted... too much for my ol' back to carry...

A bird in the bush !!!

Unless that's a pigmy Key Deer with a 12" spread, he is definitely a shooter. Keep in mind that if you pass on him this year, he may not be there next year. All the while, you will be wondering about him .....


Be Safe !!!
