Default The Potential is There!

Here are a few pics from my trail cam that I picked up yesterday. I think both these deer need another year, they both look young to me (2.5 maybe?). Regardless though, the potential is there for them to be nice deer next year. Haven't caught a shooter for this year on camera yet.

Wide 8:




Symmetrical 8:



I caught these bucks on camera several different days and they were always running together. Obviously the time on the camera is wrong, they seem to be coming through around 10 am each day.

Definitely potential there. I'd wait more than a year though...

Well there's certainly no guarantee that they will even make it through this season. There's one other guy that hunts on that land who is a little trigger happy on young bucks and he has a 12 year old son who would definitely pull the trigger on either of those. I'm fine with the kid taking one but I hope the dad lays off if he sees them.

How old do you think these deer are? I was thinking 2.5 but maybe they aren't even that old. I'm just glad to see some good genes running through my area. I love the look of the 2nd buck. Hope to see him in a year or two.

Western KY... I'm bad at aging deer, but a few years ago my dad killed an 8 that was a lot bigger than either of these that was aged at 2.5. I'm just guessing that to be the age of these but like I said, I'm not real great at this stuff. Thought you guys might be able to tell better than I would.

I have some more pictures of the two where you can see their whole bodies. These were just the best of their racks. You could probably tell more age-wise from the other pictures.

Wowzers... that first one is especially nice. Another 2 years and he'll be ridiculously wide!
