fawns looking healthy , I have been hearing a few single shots in the AM around me , bucks seem to know whats up by staying in the brush, I will have to move cams to the woods or I may not get any more pics of them.
this dummy spent 4hrs in one small plot of beans never getting 30yrds from my stand, his is just asking for it
Some beautiful deer!!! I'm from CT and had no idea that you had bucks if that Caliber in SC. I'm looking to possibly retire to there in a few years. Can anyone point me towards some good areas?
These deer are in my back yard , far better in other locations, I chose my home near wma , a bowonly area, I bought out side of town to avoid town taxes, my taxes are 550$ a year , in NJ 8500$ . I'm just outside Charleston, Santee Lakes and rivers just minutes north. We have some pigs here, research scdnr for bucks records , You would not believe all the studs, put your self in the slob areas.
This doe and rabbit spent 4hrs eating together Odd friends
I was going to hunt last night
This fawn looks new ( younger then the rest)
fox with summer coat still
he is still hanging around , and spending more time
I used several types of B-lure on each foot , these guys followed my from cam to cam , two were sleeping and made beds near cam sites. One followed me for a hundred yrds
look at time, cam just about ready to switch to day pics, next pic is me checking cam minutes later, 40$ easy cam.
same thing on this cam, deer have me patterned. deer pic then minutes later my shoulder bottom right.
I almost sat here this morning, was watching Dune instead . checked the cam at 8am because I just had a bad feeling I missed something .
test pic , hope they still work after the bad changes
and his big brother to whom which most likely broke that rack
Some good looking deer in your area! S.C. definitely has potential to consistently produce big deer but the brown it's down mentality and a LONG rifle season (4-months in most of the state) make it tough to hunt in most areas.
The new super strict 2017 regulations are out. Can't believe how tough the DNR is getting, you can only legally kill 17 deer this year. That's absolutely ridiculous.
If SC was a one or even a two buck state you'd see a lot more 140" + deer being killed.
that buck lived in my back yard eating beans and other food plot items all yr , I never took a shot at him , word is he got popped by a rifle and not recovered . I have seen huge tracks there again this yr and food plots being hammered . I keep forgetting to put a cam there . corns got ears on it already so I guess its time to see if he made it to this yr . And yea they shoot near every thing they see , yet there are some sportsman around that don't kill every one they see. I have the only beans for miles , so they come for miles , some stay and others visit from time to time. I am temped to replant an half acre of beans again , so I have a fresh stand.
I hear ya Weekender21, seeing the DNR was looking to tighten things up I had to move back to Colorado. r-man good luck this season hopefully you'll connect. Good to see the elk still hang around at my favorite little honey hole. ;-) (Bulls should be showing up soon)
Some resent pics , bucks are starting to show up from the deep cover
several are getting huge bodies this yr , we have been given them small ones some passes
racks are not as good this yr ,
