West Side -

We get lots of deer, but the photo you put up is bigger than most that we have seen in our "yard". Nice photo, man!

That buck is about 65 yards from my back door I have several pecan trees and also a few Japanese variety persimmon trees planted there .My street has houses on both sides of the road .But it is only a single row of homes .There is a 50 foot right away between my house and the neighbor's house to the south of me .And it is a major travel way for all manner of critters Red &Gray fox coyote raccoon and turkey cross in the area as it is more open between the houses than at most of the other homes . On the east side of the road that runs in front of my house is about 50 acres of fields that have been in a State Wildlife Conservation Reserve program Here it is called CREP.And that 50 acres is surrounded by extensive cropped farm fields . In back of my house is a large wooded area that has just recently been logged That of course means very thick undergrowth . . Most properties have a very limited amount of hunting pressure So some deer are not dealing with to much pressure from hunters They face more danger from cars .Beyond that woods of about 30 acres is an additional several hundred acres of more of mostly corn and soybeans . With some pressure the deer start laying behind the house and only move after dark .It is a man made sanctuary So the buck are able to get some age and the doe live almost in the backyards where hunting is either not legal or only hunted on a small basis A couple of years ago I had a great looking 10 point go waddling through my yard at 7:30 Am in the middle of Nov He did not seem to be concerned about anything other than the doe he was certainly scent trailing .A large part of the reason I live where I do is because it is very near to the area I hunt Less than a mile from my house And even though the deer travel to and from my hunting area I have never killed a buck this nice A VERY FEW HAVE COME CLOSE And I have seen a very few that are bigger than this one

Here is another pic from 2/19/16 The camera is facing a different direction .And the deer is also at a poor angle to see the antlers real well .But only about 15 feet from when the deer was standing on the previous pic .It looks like it may be bigger than the one from just 2 weeks ago Those kind of deer not not the normal anywhere But there are always a few hiding and keeping a low profile in general .However they are out there and I f you are also out there you have a [Linked Image]
