Dunno for sure. Think I only got a glimpse of what I thought was him in muzzleloader season last year and if it was him was def some bigger.  Saw him a few times in 17.  He was hot on a doe both times I was within 70 yards of him in 17 .

These bucks hanging out together last week really have me looking forward to season.  Not at my house, but could get hunting permission across the street probably.

It has been said for years that a wet spring = big antler growth. I firmly believe there will be some giants killed in 2019. Many in early October too!

Croc's......really?  C'mon man!.......lol Always pictured you as a mans man!

I did have a pair of them in my hand once, while out to Lee Mass. with the Mrs. But just couldn't do it. But I do have a certain big manley, lawyer friend from WNY that loves em? So who am I to put em down without trying them? May even break down and buy a pair at some point, but would never tell anyone!

Funny I was thinking the same thing...except for the “always pictured you as a mans man” since I met him before! Pretty sure the truck conversation is just a “beard” to cover for his Croc fetish

Been opening up some spots for hub blinds on the farm property. Opened these spots next to very thick cover, where we saw and got pic's of nice bucks last year. 20190818_133714.thumb.jpg.d1b0a3c9bb19a2985d3934e2fd0c3700.jpgMy grandson had a big buck halfway down this lane last year. Hope to have it happen again during youth weekend.

And here is where a hub blind is going. Huge buck see here a few times last year! Following woodline to the left. Perhaps my opening day of gun spot? It's a pinch point between two Very thick bedding areas. Prime rut spot!20190818_134232.thumb.jpg.6c721c3e8375508f3e08ccedc7a1a136.jpg

How high is that blind?  I have a few similar ones.  The decks on mine are all 6 to 8 feet above ground level.   I am most comfortable when hunting from that height, which is high enough to make my shots safe and to take me out of the line of fire from neighbors.  Your walls look similar in height to what I use.  I make a three foot high wall/safety-rail/weapon rest, around three sides of the deck with treated 2x4 wood framing.   I now use vertical "weathered barnwood" siding on those 3 foot walls for cover.  That stuff blends in real good in the fall/winter woods.  I see you run the siding boards horizontal and paint them camoflage.  Have you been able to trick any mature bucks from that setup ? 

For a few years, I tried using snow-fence, as siding around the three foot high walls, and I would weave branches and leaves thru that every season for cover.  That was kind of "high-maintenance", and noisy.   The worst part was that I was never able to kill a mature buck from one, behind that kind of cover.   The barnwood walls have "done the trick" there, allowing me to kill a 2.5 year old buck three years ago, and a 3.5 two years ago, when concealed behind it, just 6 feet off the ground.  The 3.5 that I killed last year was from a wide-open hang-on stand, 7 feet up, with no cover.   The key difference there was that he was about 100 yards away when he took my sabot shotgun slugs.  The two where I had the barnwood siding for cover were well within 20 yards when they took my crossbow bolts, and neither had a clue what hit it.   

Some type of cover is critical when it comes to getting mature bucks in close.  For that purpose, I am loving the 140 year old American chestnut boards that my great great grandfather used on his barn.    

I dont have any pictures of my blinds, but you can see one of the old barns (now fully dismantled and replaced with a new metal pole-barn) in the photo below:

p.s:  That was NOT one of the "mature" bucks that I was describing above, but he was pretty tasty.

I'm manly enough to know I can rock these ugly ass things. Camo is the only way to go IMHO. Colored ones make you look like a goober. I must say they are quite comfy. And at 17 bucks a pair I figured what the hell may be comfy and can wear em as slippers in the house. But by all means they are quite fugly and super lame but at the same time kinda cool
