Happy Father’s Day

It was an amazing weekend to be outside and spend it with Dad. After breakfast and grabbing coffee (for me), Dad and I headed out into the woods to put up cameras and to mark off a wood lot that he is cutting. I bathed in deet before I went into the woods and tall grass. I didn’t need a repeat of this.

This little guy was not happy that we were around. He was chirping at me, would stick his head out of the pipe, duck back in, squeak some more, stick his head out… on and on until I left.

Hello decent size track!

So many tracks! Its a good sign.

We put up three cameras. Dad picked out a new spot for us to put a seat up. All kinds of sign, now with the camera up, we can see how many and how big the deer are. Come on big buck!

One more by the Sky Condo. It looked like a super high way; beaten down paths in the field and muddy prints going in every direction. We shot one out of the Condo two years ago. Now, we need some good photos.

It was a great day in the woods and with Dad. I hope all of you out there got a chance to spend time with your dads!

We Need to Stop Feeding The Deer

I just hit a deer, do you want it? My neighbor sent me this text during her morning commute to work.  Had there been room in my freezer, I might have taken her up on it. I had done it before when I watched another driver hit another doe within 50 feet of where my...
