nice guy, but still clueless. His dad left him a small tract that shares some fence with me. He and his buddy hunt every year, but this is the first year I've really met and talked to them. They came over this afternoon to say hello, and they were real happy that they had gotten a deer. I have to admit that I hoped it wasn't one of the big bucks I've been feeding and not shooting. It wasn't. They had killed a doe. Well...this is a no-doe, two buck AR county. They had no idea about the rules or even antler restrictions. I gently clued them in.
The bucks have gone nocturnal, except for my front yard/pasture. I had 10 does and two 8 points in the yard early yesterday morning. The bucks knocked heads all over the yard for at least an hour. The does ignored them, and they didn't pursue.
