Hot Summer Nights

Posted by Bo Parker | Posted in , , | Posted on Sunday, July 25, 2010

Scott and I have managed to get out to film some velvet a few times this summer. What a great past time it is! We've managed to film several nice bucks this summer and we've still got a month and a half left to gather more footage. We've seen some pretty good bachelor groups running together, and one particular threesome has us really excited. "Weight", "Tilt", and "M&M" are regular evening visitors on a farm that is new to us this year. All 3 bucks appear to be at least 4 years old and are very healthy. At this point, we're fairly certain that all of them will go over 140". Scott captured a few still images from some of the footage, but you'll have to wait for the good close ups and footage on our Great Plains Show prostaff page. Look for it next month!

"Tilt" posed for us for a little while

"Tilt" got his name due to the way that his rack appears to be tilted back. He's going to carry some great mass!

We've been noticing quite a bit of antler growth in the past few weeks as well. "Right Hook" has come on strong in the past 3 weeks and is ending up where we hoped he would. He may even have a few more inches yet to grow. We're really liking the looks of his main beams. He reminds us a little of a KS hit list buck that we know very well.

"Right Hook" is under debate right now. We know another year would do him a lot of good, but he'd make some nice wall art this year. I just keep remembering what "First Pull" did when I passed him last year. What do you guys think?

Speaking of KS, we haven't even started that hitlist yet. We had camera/squirrel trouble the first go around, and we still have 3 weeks before our next trip to the farm. We've got our fingers and toes crossed that the next card pull down there produces some shooters for us.
