I was watching some does and two young bucks when a buck with long tines, for July, walked into view. A ten point.
He walked past the two bucks and came to a stop. The shape of his rack looked familiar. I wanted to look at him with my Alpen Optics but he just didn’t spend enough time here to give me a chance.
After looking around the area he began walking, which could put him closer to me if he didn’t stop or meander around. Something I noticed was that he had stickers coming off the beam.
He entered the plowed area and stopped to look around. Something behind him caught his attention.
When he looked back my way I was definitely sure that I’d seen him in the previous year. His straight up, nicely parallel, tines belonged to one of the bucks I took pictures of several times before and suring the deer season. Once I passed on him at 8-10 yards. It looks like that was a good thing.
He looked back again and then turned and walked towards the weeds surrounding the plowed area.
Quickly, I got the camera zoomed up and on him and waited for him to stop or at least pause. And pause it was. Click…
Then he went toward the woods. I got a pic of him before he disappeared in the trees.
Afterward, I looked at the actual pictures I found a picture that shows four of the Stickers real well. So he has long brow tines, long tines (at least for July) and stickers. Plus this year he is a 10 point. So far, but he has some main beam growing to do and those tines will definitely get longer. Because of the fine collection of stickers I’ve named him the Stuck Up buck.
Another wonderful morning. I really love taking pictures of deer. Life is good out here on the fringe of society and in the deer woods.
