    I found "SWAMPY", A deer I found and hunted late season last year. I have well over 1000 pics of this guy, but he is a night dweller. Little bigger this year, and about a mile from where I found him in Dec.
    No crops here, this is a WI, Big woods deer.
    He bedded right in front of the camera, the first day I put it out, couldn't believe it. 0c8229291ab3cd991c4645fd25040cc3.jpg 8692c466ac1912698f5a421c61b68121.jpg

    Ok, been hunting a long time and had cameras out maybe last 7 years and have seen nothing like this. This big guy has been bedding right in front of my camera 4 of last 4 nights. No daylight pics, but close. bd7d84be45169403919ba8bcdbd83e98.jpg eb97901e500190c0b208ac4a84fd058c.jpg

    Think I have two pics in legal shooting light, last year. This is public land and there are bird hunters everywhere again his year. Only hope is a doe to bring him out. He is at least 4-5 yrs old so he knows the ropes

    Didn't go out last day of Late season, real cold weather and iffy wind made me stay home, and Swampy had moved to a logging Job about a mile away. Go pick up my camera, yep Swampy Jr. There during shooting light. Very similar but less points and longer brows. 5a41f4c8322fb046d686b22a5debf829.jpg

    Finally Daylight pics. Weather finally cooled some. Wife had a deer tick on her yesterday after being in woods with me. Unheard of this time of year, but last few years if it warms up they hatch out again.
    Sending my son(15) in to hunt him this weekend(man one nice dad, lol), finally cool weather, may see some snow even.

    No swampy, woods full of city slickers, totally screwed the place up getting ready for the Orange Army hunt(Rifle season).
    Sure its a yearly ritual for him. But Wife (Aimee) got her first kill ever, a nice fat 6 pt. Awesome shot, the shakes afterwards were priceless, she is hooked.

    Son Griffin and I have been out every chance we get, I passed like 5 little bucks this week. Griffin had an amazing hunt yesterday, over 20 deer seen, passed 4 Young bucks, waiting on an 8 we been seeing. Deer in North woods are finally coming back a little.
    Finally got some snow. Pic from one of the treestands. 57a46860acdf4492dd7ea5caadee1493.jpg
