My trail cameras were temporarily lost as we are in the middle of a move, but I found them last weekend. Here are some of the first week's pics. Well, the better bucks anyway.

Nice
& I can see possibly why you call that location the honeyhole

thanks guys, but I'm afraid no one hunts my "honey hole" but me. I need all the chances I can get with the recurve! Can't wait until October. I will attach a couple pics of these setups in the daylight so you can see more of the area. I would really like to see that deer in pic #2 with another year's growth, but I'm not sure I could pass it up this year. Hopefully I will get the chance to make that decision. How old do you guys think that deer is? What do you think it will score this year?

I don't know man, being in Oklahoma,,, that may be a 3 1/2 year old and I'd guess him to be around 130-140"

I was thinking he was a 3.5 y/o. I sure would like to have a pic showing his spread. That would help in figuring out the score. Bucks in this area tend to go wide, so it wouldn't surprise me to see this deer at or near 20" inside. He looks suspiciously like the buck in my profile pic that is about 24" inside. Maybe this week I will get some more pics of him. Here's my calculations on what I think he might score:

Main beams: 21 x 2 = 42
G1: 4 x 2 = 8
G2: 7 x 2 = 14
G3: 9 x 2 = 18
G4: 5 x 2 = 10
Total mass: 25
Inside spread: 18

Grand total: 135

I think this is the same deer, but he looks a little more filled out here: I'm going to stick with the 3.5 y/o guess.

I think I will try to let him walk this year. If my nephew shane comes down though it may be a different story. :)

HM, Ohio is a state known for some huge bucks. You will be hunting much bigger bucks than this.

I wouldn't pass on him, I'm not a trophy hunter. If I had a good private area that I knew a buck like that would make it till the next year then my thoughts would be different. Ohio does have some great bucks, I just haven't run into one yet. Most of my hunting has been in PA where any legal buck was good. Those two bucks my son has taken are nice bucks from S. Ohio.

I can't wait to check the cameras today. It is always a struggle to stay away during the week. All I have to do is finish up some office stuff and wait for the right time...updates to come! Hopefully.
