June 28 - Daytime Buck

Today I worked through lunch and got a nice surprise between 12:30 and 1:00. Apparently my fall food plot must have some volunteer forage growing because a buck walked up and munched a little bit before continuing on his way.

When I started to take pictures I stepped on a branch and it made a noise. I took the picture anyway, figuring the buck's next move was to move on down the line.

A squrrel ran down a nearby tree and he shifted his attention to it.

Then he looked to his left.

I adjusted the camera settings to get a better picture. It worked.

And without saying, "that's all folks" the buck turned and walked briskly into the trees. He must be having problems with fleas of some other insect is giving him a hard time. HIs has lots of places where the hide is missing.

So there we have it for today. If we get lucky this buck will stay in our area and we can watch his antlers develope. His body will change. He has a thin neck now but it will add bulk in the upcoming months. And he will gain some weight.

Scouting For Deer 2005: a photo journey
Scouting begins right after the season ends. By March most of the bucks have shed their antlers. Then in May their velvet antlers make their first appearance. And from June thru August their headwear is growing. In September the velvet dries up and goes away. And it's all here in pictures and scouting logs, from the day the Freak buck lost his weird antlers, to the first fawn sighting and the sightings of the Double Kicker buck.

Scouting For Deer 2004: a photo journey
Scouting for deer in 2004 began with a planting a food plot for the wildlife and making water where there isn't water. And continued until the day before the season began. To the 2004 Scouting Logs and Pictures...
