Blogger Fail

This weekend, I went with Dad and hubby to set the trail camera and put up my tree seat. Everytime Dad brings in the camera to review what we got for photos, we have to look at the photos of the 10 pointer. Clearly I have been WAY too excited because we realized that the massive buck we thought was a 10 was really a massive 8 and that the 10 pointer comes into the camera 10 minutes later. So, out of the 5 pics were thought were the same buck, it’s really 2 deer! Dad thinks the 8 must have at least a 20 inches span and he called dibs. Which means I get the 10. Im very much ok with that. We will see what shows up this week.

Anyways, my fail as a blogger… We spent probably 2 hours around the area that we hunt. We checked the Sky Condo to make sure the squatter was no where to be seen and put up the tree seat. We looked for sign (hello massive deer tracks) and scrapes. I showed hubby where I shot my doe and lost my doe. And somewhere in between marching through the woods and looking at last year’s scrapes, I realized I did not bring anything to take pictures with. No camera, no cell phone. Nada. Fail!

I went back through my cell to see if I had the photos that I took last year while sitting in my tree seat and nothing. I was hoping they were there so I could at least post some photo that related to this past weekend. Nope. Fail!

Next time I go into my hunting grounds, I think it will be on the 29th, which is opening day. A camera and cell are both mandatory on my list. Then, you can see the views from my condo/seat and (fingers crossed) how big this 8 and 10 pointer are = ) Maybe we should take bets on how big the spread on the 8 really is… I will figure out a way to get a pic if we don’t drag him out on opening day.

  1. no worries, you get a free pass this time. I always have a camera with me but it take lousey pictures (and no, not on a count of my own photo skills) because it is a piece of junk. But if i drop anymore cameras or phones out of a tree stand or into the creek, my wife won't let me have anymore…so i got to work with what i have LOL.
    Sounds like a good day of scouting either way, I cannot wait to see that ten pt beast, good luck in your huntin'!

  2. 8 or 10??? Isn't it great to have choices?!! Good luck!

  3. Thanks! The 10 is amazing. He is perfectly symmetrical. The 8's rack expands well over his ears and has one front tine that goes in when the other stays straight. Both will be impressive if we get them. I need to figure out how to take the pics from the camera to the web.

  4. Should not be a problem. If you are using a SD card, you can simply get a card reader that plugs straight into you computer. You can download pictures from there.

Well played, Bambi. Well played.

This is what 7* looks like 7 degrees.  7 flippin degrees is what the thermometer read when we headed outside on Friday morning. I was as bundled up as possible with hand and toe warmers.  Hubby headed to the Sky Condo with instructions to start walking...

Welcome back critters

Dad was able to mow the field around the Sky Condo the other day and when we pulled the memory card from the camera, I instantly put it into my digital camera and started turning the wheel to see if we had any bucks.  The first picture that I came to that had...
