Gotta love those velvet bucks.
Put out a cam to see if any bucks made it thru the season. Whats the score on this one?
My wife shot this buck Dec.26 at 4:20 pm. 85degrees and he was just cruising thru a grass field. 250lbs with a 25in. neck.
The first deer is from Tensas parish and the other 2 are from piney woods in western Ouachita parish.
Back in the spring I planted 250lbs. of powerplant. I cant show ya'll some pretty foodplots, but I can show ya'll where they went.
Age and score this one. When I tried to load another pic the boxes say, clear photos, change photos, submit, no add photos. Thanks for any help.
Was getting 85% nocturnal pics. Moved my cam 150yds. and 85% daytime pics.
Only lets me load one pic at a time?
Got a few growing.
About a week ago i Planted some wheat in a wooded area since the leaves have fallen . Deer really love it when it first comes up and doesn't take them long to find it.
How old ya'll think these deer are?
Got a pic of a nice 10pt with long bladed browtines. As I was looking over pics from last year to try to identify him I noticed this small 8pt. has 3 separate burrs and beams. Sure hope he made it thru last year.
I have about 7 or 8 does with single fawns this year. Talked to two other people that have noticed the same thing. This is the first time I've seen more than 1or2 singles. I've heard that bucks seem to have spots in lines and all these are large for their age and seem to be bucks. Anyone else notice this?
Hey Slick, you nailed the swamp sunflower couple years ago. So what are these? The flowers are similar to swamp sunflower but the leaves are totally different. thanks
Amazing how these animals can survive serious injury.
Chinese tallow trees are highly invasive trees and will quickly crowd out anything else. For a long time I wondered what they were good for, then I googled em. I knew they had beautiful clusters of sweet smelling blossoms but never thought of the bees they feed. Bees are absolutely vital to us and that alone makes them valuable. But I discovered deer love to browse on the young shoots. The problem is they grow so thick, so fast that they soon get out of reach. Also, I found a lot of big ones growing in pure stands of pine where nothing else grows. That's when the light bulb went on. Hinge cutting of trees is where you cut halfway thru a scrub tree about 5 ft. off the ground and push it over without killing the tree. This does several things-creates a living brushpile in otherwise open woods, and then new growth comes off the now vertical trunk and is again within the browse reach of deer. The problem today there is very few trees that are considered culls. I promise if you ask your landowner or timber company if you can cut a Chinese tallow tree they will love you. So you can turn a terrible problem into a valuable asset. Also deer absolutely love elm trees and they have very little value so they make another great hinge tree. Don't forget those green bushes that grow in low areas, around gas wells, and in crp fields. You can easily run over these and break them down to within deer reach and they are one of a very few plants that have green leaves in January-march period. In crp land this can triple the amount of available browse without spending anything on planting. Some pics of tallow trees.
3 yrs, ago we got couple hundred acres of pine forest. We thinned the trees, planted foodplots and started feeding rice bran. The first 2 yrs. I only got pics of small bucks, mostly long spikes. This year we have a 9pt,2-8pts, 7pt,3big 6pts, 6 big 6pts that are each missing a browtine, and half a dozen small bucks. This is centered around 3 acres I planted in peas this summer. If anyone would like to read about or look at more pics they are posted on facebook under Clementine Wildlife Resources.Im not trying to sell anything or promote any product, just posting my experiences.
Anybody see a double beard on the left hand bird. They took 13 pics standing in the same line.
Some piney woods bucks starting to show their horn growth.
In the summer of '13 I found a wildflower that deer were eating up. As I was trying to find what it was I decided to mix up a wildlife foodplot blend for all wildlife summer or winter with perennial weeds(wildflowers). They are looking good.Planted another, larger plot.
