Disappearing trick

Well I was out today and hung 2 stands and pulled my trail cam cards from 7 cameras and all my big shooter bucks have disappeared ! I only had 2 2yr old small 8 points on those 7 cards. I'm headed out tomorrow to pull the cards from the other 7 cams and hope I have at least 1 big boy still left hanging around !
They seem to do this every year and I'm never able to find them ! I have cams on big oak flats that is loaded with white oaks ! Where in the heck do they go ! I'm hunting big woods deer !

Blend in or go hungry !!

I'm just the opposite.....on my main stand that I hunt, I've not had much to get excited about. I went and switched out that chip today and was pretty surprised with what I found. I had 4 new legal bucks this week, with three of them being what I would call "very large." One of them is a big mainframe 10. Another is a mainframe 8 that is even bigger than the 10-high and wide with long main beams. And the last would be a large mainframe 10, but the left beam has 5 large points like a normal buck and the right beam must have been broken at some point in velvet and has 3 or 4 points that actually hook below its ear and down around the side of its head. It is pretty cool looking. I would gladly take any of the three....if I can...

Same thing happens to me after the velvet is gone. The good news is that new bucks will start showing up in late October.

I don't really want a different one than this guy ! I have been after him for 4 yrs and he was this big when I found him so I'm not really sure of his age !!

Well I just pulled my other 7 cams and only had a spike and a small 8 point plus a couple does ! Guess I'm going to have to do some scouting in some other close areas and see if I can find at least one of the big shooters I had on camera !
There is a couple other oak flats that I haven't scouted so I guess I'll have to now !!

Here`s a picture of a buck I had on camera all summer one year.He was running with another buck the same size all year until they came out of velvet.I found this buck about a half mile away from where I had the camera in the summer.From all the rubbing that was where I found him,I think he was living in an area of about a 300 yard circle.He had water and all kinds of acorns.This time of year they find a small place to just put on the feed bag and wait for the rut to come.
