I think that I may have gotten your deer's twin brother today.Saw him about seventy five yards down the creek bottom working his way towards me. Crossbow on the ready, he zoomed in on the scent balls I had hanging. Twenty yard shot, he walked roughly a hundred yards before dropping. He went to the share the harvest program here in PA. Doe tags yet to fill.

Both awesome deer but I really love that heavy, narrow buck!Well its been a bit of a different season so far. My son took a nice mature 7 pt during muzzleloader season. It was special because his 7yr old son was with him in the blind. I got 2 coyotes during muzzleloader season and passed several bucks.
Fast forward to gun season last week, I was able to take a nice 11 pt with one broken off from fighting I had been seeing on pictures all year, one of three really good mature deer. My son-in law was able to go out just a couple of sits for his first deer and took my other 7 yr old grandson. After passing on a couple of smaller bucks this one came out at 40 yds and he was able to take him with his grandfather's gun. At that point I texted both of them that the does, coyotes racoons and armadillos better beware because I was free to shoot anything. I have identified 6 does that all had twins this year, plus lots more that had singles. I have already taken two does this week so I have donated over 300 lbs of meat to our local hunters against hunger. I can take two more this week and two more during the late December season. Nice to see the next two generations getting interested and being successful.View attachment 377292View attachment 377293
