Mountain Buck

The farm I hunt on is made up of small woods lots and fields that we call the "farm" and mountain ground that extends up into the Massanutten mountain. The mountain ground we call the "mountain" for obvious reasons. The vast majority of the big bucks are generally seen and kill on the "farm" and that's where most of us hunt. But I noticed toward the end of last season a couple of my hunting buddies were spending a lot of time hunting the mountain stands. I thought this was unusual so after the season closed I decided to move one of my cameras up into the "mountain" to have a look. As you can see from the pics I think I've found what all of the interest was about. Now I'll have to admit that there has always been a wee bit of competition among us and it's not unusual for one of us to forget to mention seeing a nice buck :). After emailing the pics to them they did seem to recall seeing a nice buck up there some time or another ;)....lol.

That is so funny about your friends "forgetting" to tell you about the bucks! Good looking one and good on you for sending them the proof!

My dad has a buck head hanging in the den. Plus, he uses their antlers to make those Chinese toys... not sure what they're called. We have two of them here. ;) (Gosh, I'm such a hunter's daughter!)

Whether you share your good fortune at seeing such a nice buck or not -- somehow everyone seems to find out about it! :)

I am sure it was an oversight. "I didn't mention that buck? Are you sure? Damn, I thought I told you about that one." LOL

hahaha! Yep...I'd keep the sighting of this beautiful animal under my hat. But not because of the same reasons you would. I'd like to hide him from the hunters out there;;))
nice capture!
