Sorry to take over the live from the saddle thread....I tried making a thread about tree identification a while back but it didn't take off like I hoped....would be a good resource here on SH if peeps would participate

Well got my first buck with a compound bow as well as my first saddle buck yesterday. Kinda neat that I had him on trail cam a few days before I shot him and also right when I shot him. First pic is him thrashing a tree, second is literally the moment I shot him and the last is the result. He ran maybe 60 yards.

@CooterBrown to the best of my knowledge this is a water oak....the leaves are similar to the scrub oak but darker more foresty green and a scrub oak is more grey with little green....water is very similar to live oak but live oak acorns are more round....I could be way off cause I'm just a dummy making internet and book educated guesses. Please correct me anyone who is better at tree identification

I'd bet the farm that's a live oak. Think you've got it mixed up with the water oak. Other post looks more like water oak to me.

If I had a nickle for every love oak acorn I shoveled out of my boat, id be in a tree hunting Iowa right now

Like I said....I'm a dummy who doesn't know for sure....I can distinguish between red and white oak for 100% and that's about it

Trolling the last quarter mile up a creek to hit a heavy trail between oaks and bedding. Bumped 2 bucks 80 yards from my tree yesterday tree. This will let me pop up out of a high banked creek 15 yards from tree.

I fear they are underestimating the sneakiness
One more tag! Let one of those trophy spikes have it!

Last deer didn't have antler above the hairline. 2 tags. And 3 in Mississippi.

Imma try to be good. I like to give deer boat rides, but honestly my back is hurting bad enough right now I may not can get down and clean one. Slept on it wrong or something and when I went to stretch this morning I woke the whole house up with my expletive.

Well ****. Guess we'll find out if my back is up to it. Just shot a doe.

Roll tide!
Was this live from the saddle? Or the canoe? Or the bucket? Feels like it was a little too fast for the saddle setup, but then again, maybe I’m underestimating your sneakiness!
Well done!

Nothing like reaching that point in your life when you can actually hurt yourself while sleeping.
