Lots of does and fawns running around. Saw a decent buck last week, will probably be an 8 pointer and well outside his ears. They're sleeping and eating right now.

Lots of tracks and pictures of does and fawns on cameras but not really any good buck pictures yet. I have cameras out at two spots right now and to me, they seem a but behind on growing this year. I'm not super worried yet, our summer pictures are usually pretty sporadic. We get a lot of does but not too many bucks. It seems like the bucks really don't start to show their face until August.

We did just add another 8 cameras last week, 4 of which I'll let run for a couple months before checking. By then, I hope to get some good pics.

Keep us posted!
Got to do a little more walking and discovered a couple of travel routes.

One in particular is really promising: There's a 150 yard strip of woods that has a pond dam one side and some very lush grass on the other. The deer are using them as feeding areas.

What's really got my attention: A creek bisects the woods and the deer are getting funneled along a high bank as they make there. Seriously heavy deer traffic along it, as it's simply too steep for them to ascend.
