Sorry to have been absent for so long...My fall and winter were tied up on family business, sheep issues, and a huge logging operation that just ended. We did have some great camps in the fall though, and even managed to bring in a few deer! No bucks seen or taken on the farm this year, and that is a first. While I did begin my deer census station on time, and initially felt we were running about 14 deer per square mile here, once the logging started it jumped to 35 or better. Way more than the land can sustain once the logging is over. But great fun to ATV up into big bunches of deer. I don't think I have seen less than seven or eight deer on morning pup walks.
Below are some happy and fun camp shots. As you can see, hunters share their chairs with Kalie.
Without fire it just would never be the same.
East Ridge tree stand view.
We feel very well watched over.
Freezers do actually get filled.
Deer census station at work.
East plot bear this fall. Never mind the camera dates, too much work to change each time batteries go dead.
A Far Field buck. No one got him...
Same buck, but love crazed.
A brave raccoon.
A gorgeous fox on the East Plot.
here's hoping your winters passed uneventfully! Blogs coming with more pictures and some pistol evals are in the making! Stay tuned. Comments and jabs cheerfully accepted!
