My friend sent me this fascinating photo from his farm in Canada. He’s been watching the buck on the right all summer, and the 6×6 on the left just showed up. “Good sign,” he texted, “cause the really big ones up here generally don’t show up until late October.”
BTW, since I received this picture smack in the middle of the Rio Olympics, I caption it:
Whitetail Olympics, Synchronized Feeding, the Canada bucks take the gold!
I am heartened to see the nice bucks up North, where the 2015 winter was relatively mild. After some lean times, I think this could be the best rack season in years in western Canada.
How about where you live and hunt? What kind of rack year do you expect? What predictions are you hearing from your state’s wildlife agency? What kind of bucks are showing up on you and your friends’ trail cameras?
Please let me know below because I’ll be putting together a pre-season prediction blog on the upcoming 2016 season, and your specific info will help me out.
(Hint: From what I’m seeing and hearing early, this has the potential to be the best buck season across America since 2010.)
