    This is so neat!  I like deer!
    I know you do; but for your own sake, I feel I must remind you that it is still illegal to have sex with them in most states. That is just a cross you are going to have to carry. #loveislove (but not with deer)

    May need all the help I can get. I know there are more out there too. Setting up my trap tonight and hope to get a few shots off as well. I unblocked all their escape routes so I’m hoping they run back to my neighbor’s once I start shooting. He’s got i00 acres of low fence and he’s covered up in hogs. This is the most we have ever had by far. Never seen more than 4-5 and they would come and go. These guys are dug in. 

    Making a lovely bait concoction as we speak. Sour corn, raspberry jello mix, molasses, and anise extract (supposedly they can smell that for miles and they love it- hope I do t bring in more lol). Going to be. Busy month. Thank god it’s 1000 degrees outside too.

    I see some tasty bites running around there. 

    The bait mix actually sounds pretty good!

    This is not critter cam but a phone cam as these two cruised the back yard around 5 minutes ago:
    Moved on with speed once the neighbour (nod) dog saw them and started barking.

    I put a critter cam in my bedroom. I can't believe the rodents my wife has been sleeping with, but I don't have the heart to tell her

    That time of year again the boys are all bowed up and trying to kill each other in between chasing tail. My car was assaulted the other night with 2 very large bucks fighting in my driveway. The gouged one side of the car and dented the other as one gored the other before my sons dog broke them up and chased them off. 



    These are the guys:



    This dude woke me up at 3 am because of the ruckus. I thought he had to pee so I let him out.  I can’t believe he jumped right in the middle of them. You could feel the ground shaking when they were fighting and he went in like a missile. Glad he wasn’t hurt- that would have been hard to explain to my son and his SO. He was pretty proud of himself haha.

    We did a lot of fence work last weekend (blocking where pigs were getting in under the fence) and have not seen anymore pigs. They live at my neighbors and raid our feeders at night.  We had 40-50 some nights- it was nuts. Constant vigilance to keep these bastards out.

    This is the guy on the wrong side of the fight that involved my car. He is much larger than the buck that gored him but the smaller dude had the leverage. I would love to get another year or 2 out of both these guys but they are getting so big they are going to kill each other. Looks like he took 2 to the ribs but he’s healed up already. (This is the guy lying in the grass in the 1st pic. That pic was taken this morning)

    And a fun new addition this year. We have a piebald deer fawn. This is a genetic mutation that often results in birth defects that are fatal. Piebalds that are healthy are very rare and we got one. We now have 2 “off limits” animals (fallow and piebald).
