On a somber note, we lost a good man down at the waterfront recently. Kevin Madden passed over the bar this week. I knew Kevin a long time. He was a big man with a raspy voice. He crewed on Tommy Dunham's boat for many years. He always used to tell me how much he loved being out on the water every morning bay scalloping with the guys. I would always talk with Kevin whenever I saw him at the docks. He would talk about scalloping and the good old days with me. When he wasn't scalloping, you could find him driving his taxi. I will miss him.
BUCK OF THE WEEK:
This buck held onto his antlers for a long time. The bucks I have been documenting on all my trail cams around the island shed their antlers by March at the latest. Notice the abnormal right side with only the one point. Most likely he damaged that side during velvet causing the stunted growth.
