    :cry: Last week i was doing a clean-up. it's about 2 in the afternoon, sun to my back. blowing leafs.spacing off, then out of the blue it was standing there, watching me! and it was BIG, it's eyes didn't blink. i did'nt know what to do.it was about 7 foot from me,and i could tell it wasn't happy. yup it was a big buck. i counted the points as i turn and ran to the truck! 10! it hit my trailor and broke one of it's antlers off . after it ran away and i finished the clean-up,( ah, in my pants) i notice apples everywere! :realmad:

    The hunter that sees that deer with one side of it's rack missing/broke is going to be looking for the other deer that was big enough to get in a fight with the 10pt. and break the antler off p.s. I hope you picked up the antler becauase there are some of us that get a little excited over them.

    Everyday I get a number of them wandering around on my property. There are a couple of them that like something in one of my compost piles, perhaps the fermenting crabapples.

    A couple of bucks squared off a few days ago and now one comes up alone and shows signs of being pretty banged up.
