The big boys are still around

Well, I can still look at the photos right?  Since Dad and Hubby still need to fill their tags, we are still looking at the trail cameras to see which deer are around.  It is also fascinating to see how the deer change their behaviors as the season progresses and the rut starts.

Case in point – those two big 8-pointers that I want the guys to shoot, are still around! These are from a couple week ago.  I forgot to get the newer pictures from Saturday am when they walked through.

I have been chasing this second deer for two years now.  If the guys don’t get him this year, I want to land him next year! Also, how funny that the two biggest deer around are within three minutes of one another in the woods.
