This buck was trailing a doe through our backyard yesterday morning.
Many thanks to the Bent Tree homeowner/photographer who let me share these fantastic photos. Yesterday, he saw this 6 point buck chasing does (with no luck). Then, a short time later, the tired buck took a needed rest.

Thirty-six years ago, a settlement agreement was reached between Bent Tree Corporation (not the same as BTCI) and Bent Tree Property Owners Association, Inc. The amenities/common properties were turned over to the property owners, under a management arrangement on November 1, 1983 and the actual transfer of ownership to the property owners occurred later that month. Bent Tree Community, Inc. was established by BTPOA to own and operate the facilities on behalf of the Bent Tree property owners. The following quote is from the November 1983 Echo (the first Echo published by BTCI instead of by Bent Tree Country Club):

On October 30, 1969 the Pickens County Progress had a front page article announcing the plans for the development of Bent Tree.

11 Briar Vista in Bent Tree hit the market with an asking price of $133,900. Click here to link to the listing information. While looking at the listing, the lot size jumped out at me as unusually small (it says the 2 bed / 2 bath home sits on only .33 acres). So, I looked it up on the tax assessor’s site, which says the home is actually on a .42 acre lot. And, there might be a possibility to purchase/combine the empty lots adjacent to the property, to make it an even better nature-lovers’ paradise.
