Two bucks appeared on the woods line and studied the area for a while and then walked over to the soon to be food plot area. We had a little rain last night and  it gave the grass, weeds and leaves a nice shine.   

I zoomed my Sony in on the 9-point so we could see him better. His points are at least 2-inches longer than when we first saw him in July. His back has a very slight slope and his belly is pouched out a little bit before the hind quarter area.  The hocks are cleaned off and are yet to be blackened up for this year’s rut.

Here is the second buck with his head angled so we can see him better. This buck has beautiful markings on his face. H’s probably 3 1/2 years old and has excellent potential to be a real bomber buck.
