The whitetail season opened the 10th of November but the rut seems to be slow this fall. Apparently it's just getting started now. Several weeks ago I aw tracks of a big buck around the turnip patch. I feed the deer in the back yard year round & seldom see a buck. Old granny & her young are here every day & sometimes several times a day. .....Saturday morning, opening day, at 7;05 AM a HUGE buck came in. I tried taking a picture but it was too dark for the camera to focus. I kept expecting my next door neighbor to shoot but nothing happened. I decided to shoot it myself but the brute walked across the back lawn 50 feet from the back door & over to the neighbor's house on the other side of mine. Too dangerous for a shot. Next morning a lesser but nice buck showed up at 7;30. Still pretty dark but I did get one picture. The scoundrel wouldn't walk in front of the trail camera I set up. Lots of pictures of granny & one of her little ones. Nothing out there this morning but they came in a couple hours before daylight. Three different bucks in less than an hour. One is a decent looking varmint. Appears to be a 10 pointer but definitely not the one that came by on opening day. He had at least 12 points & probably more. Longer tines too. The does are granny & her little girl. The old bag turned 6 years old in June & has produced 9 babies. .......Paul H
