After checking a few trail cams today, I was pleased to see a nice 8-point Virginia whitetail buck. As of today, it’s right around 3 months before bow season begins and I’ve seen a moderate amount of velvet cropping up in the mountains. I think the hot and humid weather may be keeping these big bucks bedded down all day and it forces them to travel in the late evenings and into the night. I try not to put too much complementation on their patterns right now; we all know that when October comes around its a whole different ballgame.
I really hope this guy makes an appearance on the 2012 #Deertour. If you want to check out more of my trail cam pictures and keep track of the deer in my area this season check out my online album here.
