    The crazy buck has A LOT going on to say the least. He's got stuff going in all directions and interwoven. I have him on camera at least 15x both still shots and video and I still have no idea how many points he has. I'm going to guess he's only 14" wide BUT he's like 20+" tall. No idea how old, this is the first year I've seen him. More than likely, I'll never see him again once the season opens. He shows up around midnight and sticks around a few minutes and then leaves.

    On my small property of 15ac, the deer aren't living there because it's just not setup for them to have enough shelter. There's no pines and the hardwoods just aren't thick enough. I do my best to keep them coming by having clover and a feeder but that really just gets some does and smaller bucks to stop for a minute or two between bean and corn fields that surround my place. The first few years, i tried the flavored salt licks which the deer didn't seem to really care about. I put several out and monitored them but deer would pretty much leave them alone. One day when I was picking up corn at Tractor Supply, I saw a basic salt block for cattle, they are $4.50. I bought one and put it right on the landing area where the deer cross the tax ditch. The ditch holds water and gets 3-4' deep and the deer cross it several times a day. I was very surprised how much the deer licked and pawed at the salt lick. One large block lasted 6 months and the deer even pawed at the ground after the salt lick was totally gone. I put another one in the same spot earlier this year and every type of animal that lives in the area visits the salt lick. I'm very surprised what a basic salt block brings to the game. Turkeys, geese, fox, raccoons, woodchuck, deer, ducks and the occasional Boston Terrier all seem to enjoy it. all

    New garden was a flop (for us humans), the deer got to it pretty early and all i got from it was some beans and a few squash. Everything else was eaten by the deer. I knew they could step over the fence but didn't think they would. Guess the joke's on me!

    I don't like a IWB holster and in my state, there's no issue with "printing" so I always use a OWB holster. I like the thumb break type holster and have many of them. I tend to buy DeSantis holsters because I like their quality.
