    Default 2019 Archery season freezer candidates

    Gentlemen,

    I ve had a trail camera out for maybe a couple months monitoring the growth of a couple young bucks and taking a look as to what offerings might be given to me this season should the opportunity present itself.

    The 2 younguns are brothers with one having a deformed right antler and the other has a deformed left antler.

    I got a very grainy shot of what appeared to be a decent non typical buck. This was the first time I have ever seen a nontypical back there.

    This piqued my interest enough to put another 2 cameras out there, hoping to see what this buck looked like.

    Initially, I didn't see him but did get this shot the day after placing the cams.

    Oh my. Now this could be a decent year if they don't crawl in a hole in the next 4 or 5 weeks.

    I got nothing for the next few days. Then this came by.

    Then his buddy.

    Good Lord willing and the crick don't rise, I could possibly do ok.

    I'll continue with a few additional shots in the next post.

    I have to modify my stand to place it lower so I might get a chair of some kind up there. My knees have not recovered from dragging the 9 point out last year. 2 surgeons. Possible replacements of both.

    I applied for all 3 Pa elk tags. Not sure why. I'm in some discomfort with this bone on bone knee issue but did get a winch for my truck hitch. ha.

    Glad you had a great time with the lobsters 27hand. Come hunting season you’ll be asking where all the deer went.

    I think I've lived that before.
    Last year, I saw not a single doe back there for my 2B tag but did score the 9 point
    They do crawl in a hole.
    There are 6 LEO that hunt the 14 acres next to my place.
    All I can do.is pray to the hunting spirits come 21 Sept.
