Title: Big Blacktails!!!!
Post by: Cope30tyee on October 09, 2021, 10:06:32 AM
Thought I'd post a few of the good ones I've gotten recently and throughout the summer.  I've been a long time lurker, thought I'd share a little as well.

This is a buck that I have been watching this summer. He usually comes out right at last light. Its amazing what camera phones can do. This picture does not look good quality but it is actually extremely dark out. Like need a headlamp dark. This is probably one of the nicest blacktails I have ever had the opportunity to watch. I get so much enjoyment from watching Mature bucks. They act so much different than younger bucks. He has a buddy that is pretty big as well. The other one is a 4x3.

All I have is a 2" spike and like 5 bears in my spot. It's going to be an interesting opener for sure. Great pictures.

These are all great blacktails.

Question:  With so much forage on the westside why are their antlers generally smaller than mule deer? Genetics? Is that food not that great? Thanks

Whitetail are the oldest, timeline speaking, by far.  Blacktail are next in line and most people that study such things say mule deer are a hybrid of ancient whitetail and blacktail.  A fair amount of time, most say 10,000 years or so, and you have a different species, muledeer.  The antler difference is a species thing not an environmental or food result.

I would guess that huge antlers on the westside would've snagged in brush and limbs more, slowing them down for predators.

I get this guy at least 1 or 2 times a week. No pattern at all as to when or on which cam. Have 4 cams within 300 yards of eachother.  Sometimes he shows mid day, sometimes dusk/dawn, and sometimes night. Almost always has a younger 2x3 in tow too.
