Long Ridge 2012 Fall Catch Up!

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.

  1. Those are some real nice pictures. I haven't had good luck lately with deer cams, they have been burning up batteries more often to usual for some reason.

    1. I find that in very cold weather only the Cuddebacks last at all Rick...

  3. Congrats on your doe! She looks like a dandy by my standards.

    I also got to see a smoke show this year. My first ever in fact, that wasn't at a paper target of course, and it was awesome! I think I was just as excited as I've ever been out hunting. I tell ya what, that muzzle loading stuffs for me! I love it!

    Congrats again now I'm off to enjoy your camp pics.... I love camp pics ;-)
