Fall Opening at Long Ridge

This has been a beautiful fall...all the colors, the scents, the sights and the game, are unbelievable..
We have more bucks here than does, and that is a first! I would hazard to say three bucks for every doe on camera. And lots of bears...a few coyotes..I have not been able to post for some time due to time constraints because I have again taken up writing for New Hampshire Wildlife Federation. But, here we are... This black bear is a small guy, passing the 'Buck Stand".
 
A shootable buck for sure in NH, and while I cannot count his points in this picture, it is clear that there is a good spread.
 
We can never seem to get rid of these guys, unfortunately...
 
The two pictures below show a handsome fellow with a good wide spread...hope to see him during daylight hours.

Not sure if this is the same dude, about a mile away...
 
Nice shot...
Daytime shot of a little guy...worth saving for another year.
 
I love, love, this shot. Will the rut bring him out during season?
Same guy in velvet?
 
One of the last nursing this beautiful fawn will ever have...

 

 

 
We are bow hunting now and as of this point I have been out five times and seen three does. Chose not to take one (some out of range). As you know, I do not take does that have spring fawns with them. The reason should be obvious but if not, send me a note! Good luck to you all, and let me know how you make out this season!

  3. Love your pictures Jack especially the one in color of the leaves turning and of the big buck that I hope you can harvest. I will not be hunting this season because I had to have a rotator cuff surgery on my right shoulder which was a complete rupture - so I'm on the mend now and will have to wait until next season. I may can get behind a blind on the ground and shoot with my camera if I get a chance. Wishing you GOODHUNTING and be safe! :)
