Hooray! I don't go buckless again last week :). I did get a couple of button bucks on camera last week and a few more does including a couple of very big does. I'll post them later this week. But bucks first. This is a very good size button buck and hopefully will be sporting a nice six or eight point basket rack next year. He looking for any acorns that may have been missed earlier and it looks like in the one pic he found one. The squirrel probably isn't too please the buck is stealing his nuts.
For those of you that don't know what a button buck is it's a yearling buck born last spring. If you look closely at his forehead you'll see two small bumps or buttons where his antlers will be next year. We take extreme care each year not to kill any button bucks when we harvest a doe. This little buck may be the one sporting a big ten point rack three or four years from now.
