We caught that same little 6 point last night around 2:30 a.m. on the trail cam. We got several pictures of him before he was gone. The good news is he made through hunting season and will probably be a nice small 8 point next season (Still probably too small to shoot sadly). I am glad he is coming around on a more regular basis now, it allows me to know that at least he has not shed his antlers. This means it is a good bet that a good number of the deer if any have not shed their antlers yet this year. Trail cams are useful for so many different things when it comes to hunting!
I normally start shed hunting this weekend, however it looks like I will just be scouting this weekend. Now is a great time to spot deer bedding areas and travel routes. Normally I use late winter snow stores to do this, but we have had a serious lack of snow this winter..
When you have a passion for hunting, you can learn to make the sport a year round activity, even know the season only runs September 15th - January 31st each year. Between maintaining and looking at new equipment, scouting, trail cams, taking summer time walks and photos when possible, and hunting it self, you can always find a reason to hit the woods! Remember that when you get the off-season blues!
Below are the pictures from last evening of the 6 point buck.
Have any of you been out scouting, or seen deer in your travels? Seen anything worth mentioning? Leave a comment and tell us all about it!
