    I live a very short distance from state game lands here in Pa and every year I see a few nice buck in my yard after dark. I didn’t get a liscense this year and haven’t talked to a lot of local hunters so I don’t know the deer population this year. I hit the spotlight to get some paperwork out of my truck and saw a real big boy. Would have liked to get a picture but he checked out pretty quick. Never seem to see one like that when I’m in the woods. Oh well.

    I’m thinking about deer hunting this year, I haven’t hunted deer in at least 6 years, stopped when the kiddos were young

    Yea I’m guessing he had a bit of a smirk on face when he took off. Didn’t really have a chance to take a pic but maybe a trail cam in my driveway is in order. The last time I put a trail cam in my yard I had 500 pics of possums cats and raccoons.

    Opening our gate yesterday morning (800' from the house), I saw a good-sized buck with a large rack watching me from about 20-30' away. We had eye-contact for perhaps 30 seconds, then he just ambled on in no rush, with a young doe about five feet in front (that I had not noticed earlier). We live in a remote neighborhood with 5-30 acre lots, inhabited with folks who moved here to enjoy the wildlife, so they're safe and welcome. It is about a mile to the nearest paved public road (with 25mph speed limit).

    He was definitely in lock down with that doe, he wasn’t going anywhere without her

    That can and will be used against you in a court of law! Be careful!
