With all this rain and possibly fewer deer in some areas because of the extended drought of the previous few years, this could be an impressive year. I know a lot of hunters I've talked to have lowered their harvest numbers because of fewer deer sightings, and I think there could be a higher percentage of mature bucks in the population because of this. Obviously, this won't be the case everywhere, but some ranches with good management plans may have this scenario. Fewer deer, higher percentage of bucks in the mature age class, the best browse we've seen in years, that combination should equal some great results come this fall. I'm excited!

Someone strums a mandolin, soft gulf breezes blow
My new life is waiting in old Mexico
