Dog was barking all night Tuesday night. I'd go out to look and didn't see anything but Wednesday morning I looked out and saw a mature buck locked down with a doe by my shop. He just stood there and stared at me, not 50 yards away. Clearly in his stupid phase.

Although I guess it's not heard of, still seems the earliest I've noticed. This buck has been around for a few years. Usually shows up in January to eat my acorns when I'm hunting his kin in Arizona.

No matter how high a duck flies a hammer still breaks a window.
