From my vantage point, as the dark slowly turned into first light, I saw several deer come down the hill to the south. They came to the plowed area and walked around the area. I could make out antlers on some of them.

The light got better and I let my camera do the talking.

A different buck approached. He’s not very wide but he has 9 points in progress, right now. And the darker coloration of the ends of his points and main beams mean he is a growing boy.

While I was focusing in on the 9-point another 9-point came up from my right.

And another buck walked out of the woods to the north into the plowed area.

Here is yet another buck. This one is more gray than the others. He already has 8 points and look at those fine brow tines.

Speaking of wide.

When he turned around I got a good pick when he started walking in my direction.

He continued walking closer to my position and I took this picture. You can see a point starting on the right main beam. And that lump on his left main beam is a 10th point in the making.

As I said in my last post, I’ve got to get the seed in the ground.
