    From my property in Orange county, in southern Indiana. Nothing spectacular, but these were taken almost a month ago so they have a little time to grow still. We saw some nice bucks driving around yesterday. 6 that were P&Y and 1- maybe 2 that were B&C. Almost 50 bucks total, all within a mile of my property. We seen a group of over 30 deer feeding together in a bean field bordering the property. Should be good hunting this year.

    Kind of looks like this one has a forward facing kicker.

    Fifty feet from my house, several days a week. Often, there is a buck wandering through, too. It just wouldn't feel right to shoot any of them, though, because it's too easy. These are the little coastal blacktails.

    Oh, and that is some tasty poison oak they are feeding on.

    That pic was from mid-April. I don't really know much about the rut, but buck season for the zone where I live (A-zone) starts in mid-August.

    ateamer, did you take that pic with a game cam? Looks like it's pretty close.

    Took it with a Fuji S5000. They were about fifty feet from my living room, just across a small gully below our house. They bed down in the brush below our house a few nights a week, and the tall grass on the other side of our place has a clear path through it from them tromping through. It's not uncommon to get home from work at 2:00 AM and find them munching on my grapevines or drinking from the birdbath.

    The deer population around here is very healthy due to the abundance of food and total lack of hunting pressure. Some are taken in the hills or semi-rural areas, but the suburbs are, among other things, a de facto wildlife preserve. There is a thriving herd living on the campus of the community college a mile down the street. You can set your watch by where and when they feed on a nightly basis.

    I would love to find some property to hunt on, even if I have to break out the bow (probably have to keep it quiet due to neighbors) and practice. With much of the terrain here and the smallish deer, you could do just fine with a handgun or SKS.

    Now if I ever see a pig on our little parcel, it will be on its way to sausage heaven.

    It's a Moultrie, not sure of exact model. You can get them on Ebay for $180 w/ battery, charger and solar recharger.

    Here is a pic of some deer that have been tormenting me while I practice with my compund bow in my back yard.

    They feed in my field next to the house maybe 150 yds away while I practice.

    Pic taken last night with one of my trail cams rigged to a tree.

    Lookin' good :thumbsup: I'm going back down to set up stands next weekend, I can't wait to see what's on the gamecam this time. Hopefully all of those bucks we seen out in the bean fields will be out again. We're bringing a video camera and a good digital camera with us this time to get pics while driving around and spotlighting.
