Here’s a photo of the Buck We Should have Shot Last Season.
It’s easy to get complacent when you control your property and it’s easy to pass on bucks thinking you’ll get them later.
I was rumaging around in my camera disks and came up with this photo. These are last year’s photos of two bucks we elected not to shoot. It appears that one of them is gone now.
The larger of the two bucks was an older deer. He may yet show up, but since we think we saw his buddy alone, it appears that he’s gone. Maybe shot during the rut last year to hit by a mountain lion this summer. That’s the way it goes. We have little hope that he’ll show up again.
