It's been about two months since I last posted...a busy fall with tons of fun hunting and camps giving me the chance to self sabbatical I guess.. Let's take a look at some animals about during hunting season. Eight of us took deer, plus a turkey, plus a grouse, plus a moose, and probably more! The buck below and the doe below him is 130 yards from deer camp at a tree rub. This seven pointer was taken by a Vermont camp member. He was chasing a doe, and it was a running shot. Nice.
This young man was not taken, and for that I am glad. I still like adhering to QDMA standards.
Nice fat doe, and this is my first IR camera. Not terribly impressed with IR night shots, and I note that the bucks are aware of it anyway.
Turks on my favorite stand.
Another decent guy!
Never took this guy either..
I took this doe with a muzzle loader at 35 yards. Dressed out at 125, smallish for these woods.
I was alone, so glad that daylight, a sled, and ATV were handy. We were about 3/4 miles out.
Hanging at camp.
Nice rub for a ten inch diameter tree. This was visited by multiple bucks just above camp.
Stayed tuned for posts of the three camps this season.
