    well i got busted today. big ole doe caught me while i was pi$$ing. layed my gun on the tree beside me and was talkin on the ole phone. she didn't move until i was finished then decieded to blow at me for at least a good 20 minutes. did find something weird today though. the land right next to were i was hunting was clear cut this last spring, summer. i hunted some thick timber this evening and noticed that a buck had a scrape line about 10 yards from the cutover. every 25-40 yards there was a scrape that had been worked. I couldn't figure it out. exactly 10 yards from the cutover for several hundred yards. from a pine thicket, through a cypress thicket, and into hardwoods. it was amazing. i did notice a small tree that he had rubbed and it didn't get me to excited but the fact that i have never seen so many scrapes this early so close that was a shocker.

    several years ago on a place we hunted in issaquena(sp) county the same thing happened but it was a rub line on willow trees. me and my dad hunted that deer religiously and never got a shot at him. every willow tree for 200 yards was rubbed bare and they were about a foot off the ground and from 2" to 8" in diameter. we would go in and see the sap still ozzing out of the tree's he had just hit. 3 years of hunting him we never got a shot. he did it every year in the same places and we only saw him one time.

    i would at least like to see how big this deer is. 4 years ago in the same spot my dad found a scrape. the exact same location. kind of weird. it's right under a cypress tree. i can't figure it out? any ideas? thinking of pouring a hole bottle of doe urine in it just to see what happens.

    Did any of you see this picture of this moose-antlered deer that was taken North of Vicksburg on Anderson-Tully land?
