What do you think he'll be like next year with some minerals in him?
I see he still had his head gear last week.

They got a good hiding place..........that's why they are so big! Probably nocturnal as all get out. They do mess up a bit during the rut though. Good luck next year.........Gary

Great buck and best of luck w/ him next year. Certainly has the potential to be a Booner, probably about 10" or so shy of that right now. Va or Md?

I don't know where they hide either, till I put a trail camera up. From 8Pm to 4 AM constant pictures. 14 different deer, 2 bucks amoung the group. One night, and only 1 night in the last month have I seen them while I was on stand, and then they were out of range, and it was damn near dark anyway. I sat thru that entire week of bitter cold a week back, both morning and eve, never saw a deer. First trail camera I have ever owned, the deer are there just when I'm not. Maybe next year, I'm about wore out. T.

If I were you I would put some chicken wire between two trees and put some corn on both sides....it's time for big boys antlers to come off now and when he bends down to eat some corn.....off comes the horns..... nice buck...good luck with him next year...hopefully he won't get hit in traffic

I tried the chicken wire once with no luck.Maybe I'll try it again.I put up three stakes in a V and put corn in the V with chicken wire on both sides.Maybe try some trees this time.

Get a box spring mattress, flip it over so the springs are showing, pour corn or whatever deer bait you want and while the bucks eat out of the box spring their antlers get caught up on the springs and fall out. I tried it two years ago for the first time and I have found 13 different sheds so far doing it this way.

bhamp -- that's a brilliant idea. I've also heard of making a making a triangle with 3 t-posts and then using woven wire to make a VEE. I like your idea better though. I'll assume that the human scent from the mattress didn't bother your deer?
