    My Second Deer Ever

    I've been deer "hunting" for about 10 years, and finally broke my spell last year with a 1-point buck. Then on Saturday Nov. 22nd (opening day of TN gun season), I shot this nice 6-pointer. Live weight was right at 140 lbs. I was stoked!

    Who knows? It is deer season! I might try to get out some more this season. I donated the rest of last year's meat to a local homeless shelter. It's just my wife and I, so one deer lasts us all year. I'll post more as I get them.

    Good for you!!! I've put in more hours than I care to think about without the opportunity to even cock the hammer! Been a tough year, (so far), for this boy so yours makes it that much sweeter.

    Here in PRHI, we have "full sized" fawns.




    This photo was taken back in April of '06. It was a fun hunt. Haven't been out much since.

    They're the largest fawns you'll ever see.

    j/k They're called "Axis Deer", scientific name "Axis axis". They're originally from India. The largest Axis deer I've seen were around 190 lbs. They keep their spots for life, which often confuses taxidermists who are not familiar with the species.

    I got a few calls over the years from taxidermists who were upset because they thought the samples I sent them for mounting fawns. After explaining the species and reasoning that I've never seen a 100+ lb. fawn, we both had a good laugh.

    Huh....interesting species. I like the antlers. Do they stay in velvet year round?

    Due to the tropical climate here in PRHI, you will find deer in various stages of velvet year round. There's no set breeding cycle, so "the rut" pretty much happens year round.
