    I wish the rain had not screwed up this shot.  I'd like to get a clear pic of that fox.

    Also, I don't see where you'd mentioned it was "Fortified cottonseed" previously, so I was only searching for cottonseed

    edited to add: I seriously doubt a company with a website selling fortified cottonseed is going to say much bad about it either (bad for sales)
    Not saying their information is incorrect, but checking with the state biologist, or some of the neutral source like TAMU might be a better source.
    Looking around more, I've found multiple sources disagreeing.
    Do I have a clue if it is or isn't something to be concerned about? NOPE
    But I have found enough to think that more "homework" might be prudent

    No worries, I was looking around for cottonseed locally and found it. I have no dog in this fight, just found something I found interesting and thought I'd pass it along.
    Oh, I appreciate it. Still going to research it more thoroughly. Don’t want to hurt the herd.

    Zee, I know you are supplementing with the cotton seed, but, it looks greener than usual in your neck of the woods, is that also a factor in the antler growth this year, better local food source?

    We’ve had more rain this year than last year, so the grass is doing better. But, that ice age freeze we had last February killed most of the browse shrubs and it hasn’t recovered yet.

    Spoke to the biologist this morning, he said it could go either way. In pen raised deer it could be an issue. In free range deer probably not as they have plenty of additional forage. We are high fenced and supplement feed. 
    He said if we wanted to play it safe, we could stop feeding cotton seed the first of October and start back in February.

    I was going to say if you wanted to you could feed during antler growth and stop for the breeding season. The article said that the buck recover so that would probably be prudent.

    this this is strange. 

    Moultrie replaced the camera that got full of ants. The new camera takes some “strange “ night vision shots:

    Mature does will chase off younger bucks like that.

    He’s currently the oldest deer on the place. Look at his belly!!!  Ha!  Talk about a “Beer Gut”!
    Again, he was also one of the last to lose his horns last year so, he’s behind the others on tine length. I think he’ll be impressive. Give him another month.
