You guys like apples? Let me show ya what a 5 gallon bucket of apples can get ya..............
Now I know some you Daniel Boone types kill an occasional deer. Some you are even goofy enough to only kill deer with horns, antlers, racks, things sticking out the tops of their heads. Why I don't know. Deer meat is deer meat. The dogs don't care what ya kill for them...............
Just downloaded two trail cameras and will have to go through the pics. Will take some time (about eight hundred pictures over three days. Won't show ya the pics of the coons, strutting turkeys, coyotes, fawns, does, spiked bucks, the High School Kid grabbing his current squeezes rear end or the sun going down. I'm just gonna show ya pics of bucks......
These bucks are within a quarter mile my front or back door. All of 'em on my place. Pick the direction ya like best. I'm only gonna show ya bucks in velvet, 'cause that's what they only got now. I'm gonna show ya what bucks came into a 5 gallon bucket of apples (Yellow Delicious, Macintosh, Granny Smith). I ain't gonna show ya the bucks that came to the salt licks, the mineral blocks or the sweet corn, and I'm only gonna show ya the smaller bucks, eight points and a little more. I don't want Mette to see the bigger bucks, he'll only load up and come up and kill them. He likes to kill anything that walks.................
Ostrom couldn't kill them if he had a Howitzer, so I'll show him them privately.................
Now while I delete, extrapolate and organize the pics you guys think about what you would have done with a 5 gallon bucket of apples. Probably you'd have made a pie or a cobbler. I made deer......
And I'll show ya them tomorrow.

I would have given them to our horse and goats. They love them. We don't need to feed the deer here. They are so thick here it's pathetic. I can walk out on our land any time and see 7-10 within 10 minutes. When I hunt, it's not hunting, it's waiting for them to come to me... We've lived here now for 8 years I think? and the deer are use to my scent and aren't scared of me at all. Karen and I sometimes just go sit and watch them watching us... That's not a joke, they really do... It's funny because they'll stand there really still and watch us like we don't know they're there... I wonder if they do the same when humans are watching them... LOL I've let many deer keep walking when hunting. I won't kill unless I'm going to skin and eat the deer. Sometimes, even though I have my rifle with me, I just sit and watch them. To me, and this is just my opinion, deer are the most beautiful animals on the planet, and I can sit and watch them all day long sometimes. I have many many pics of deer on the property from my trailcam and my normal camera. I have one pic of a mother and two fawns that I walked up on and they didn't care. I was at most 20 yards away from them when the pic was taken. The momma watched me as the babies ate, and then they slowly walked into the woods. That was truly a great day for me. :)

Wayne, I have to agree with ya. They thick as...............
Wayne, I have to agree with ya. They as thick as ticks in a dogs ear around here. Love to watch them, unless they eating my trees, then I use anything I got to kill them....
The fawns are the cutest things. I have two dogs who eat fawns like candy. About the middle of June I'm heading down to my barn and this wobbly legged fawn comes running toward me, tongue hanging out and damn near out of breath. The dogs, not too far behind looking for brunch. I let the fawn go by and grab the dogs. The fawn heads out into the 10 year and disappears. I take the dogs in the house and give them a cookie and they happy. Saw the fawn a couple days later with his momma. I'll probably kill his momma this fall. Ah well, they more where that came from.

5 gal bucket of apples huh!!!!
Porbably the first thing I'd do is take a wash tub and fill it with water and dump those apples in it then invite all my democrat aquaintances over and watch em stick their faces in the water trying to get an apple. They ain't gona use it for squat even if they get one out with their teeth so it's best to give em a slap on the back side of their heads and showem how to reach in and grabe one. Then they'll blame it on Bush boy.
Maybe put one in a blender and see how liquid it will get...pour it out for the bees to eat.
Make some apple butter to smear on some toast.
Grind some up so I can have porkchops and applesause for din din.
Might even take one with a worm in it and shove it in the neighbors exhaust pipe and see if it works as good as a potato. Don't think it stands a chance aginst Mr. Potato Head so that idea's out.
I'd save all the grammy smiths for myself to eat. I can eat those till I get sick and chase it down with a few persimons. Ever eat one before the first frost hits.....YUK, Taste like that expensive dry wine. But it will make ya pucker up.~~~~~

Postmortem, we have 12 deer hanging around the house. Mostly does and fawns but a few small bucks thrown in. Like you i'm a meat hunter, the horns are nice to look at but boiled, baked or fried they aint worth spit for eating . That being said I would travel all the way to I-O-Wee for a big set of horns .

Way out west where the Sun sets we don't kill Does to eat . Unless your a youth ,I see from your posts you kill the Does and let the youth kill the Bucks . not that there is anything wrong with that ." Never doubt a man that's been in the woods
