    Ever since our neighbor told DH he had spotted an 8 point buck on our place I've been watching the meadows on the edge of the woods closely. I've only ever seen young bucks, does and fawns here before.
    I just went out to refill the chickens feeder and I saw him!
    Such a magnificent creature! I'll be smiling the rest of the day now. [​IMG]

    Yup, the boys are in rut right now (as in looking for a girlfriend) and traveling around, plus it's deer season and they seem to know the day it starts.

    Nothing more exciting than a beautiful buck.

    Quote:That would probably excite me too. The breeder has a eight week old female available right now. Her little ears are already up. Every morning I tell DH about her, after visiting their website and every morning he tells me to have patience! [​IMG]

    The biggest I have seen was a 12 point buck in our backyard. The biggest my dad saw a 15 point buck when he went hunting!!!!
