    Deer

    The local deer enjoying the thaw right beside my house. It has been a tough winter for them around here, lots of cold and snow. Worse winter in recent history.

    I hunt with both camera and rifle, but I would prefer that pic to the venison .... also not sporting to shoot them so close.

    Looks like two deer are approaching one year old and the one farthest back is nearing two. No shooters in that group. Very nice to see them with some weight to them after the last two winters we have experienced.

    Nah, Maybe in my early youth but I would still have felt pretty guilty afterwards. I've actually had it where I was stalking one that I'd seen up ahead (against the wind) and another broke cover in a trail about a yard in front of me, stopped and was looking away from me towards where I had seen the first one. I could have clubbed it with the rifle, perhaps even grabbed it by the horns but instead I stood dead quiet and watched it up close - awesome feeling! It seemed like ages but in reality was probably less than a minute that it sensed me, turned around and looked me straight in the eye, frozen for a half second before it bolted off into the surrounding brush. I never shot anything that day! icon_shh.gif

    Were I hunt we aim for the yearling does because they have the most reproduction potential. Deer are way overpopulated and cause a lot of crop damage. Limit here is over 300 antlerless deer a year if you have a kid. https://www.tn.gov/twra/pdfs/deercalendar.pdf

    I know many places where populations are out of control. Just not where I currently live. The state of NY, in my opinion, has allowed the insurance companies to write the management numbers for far too long. Our herd sizes are well below the carrying capacity of the land and doe permits are still being handed out like candy. All the while there are no restrictions on antlered deer. I am not a trophy hunter by any stretch but too many yearling and button bucks get caught in the crossfire of all the doe permits. Not a good recipe for a well balanced, healthy herd.
