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!

More Dogs shot

In my December 1 post, I talked about a string of dogs that had been shot in Maine and the hunters said they thought the dogs were really coyotes. Well, it happened again. In York over the long weekend, another dog was shot. So, I have to ask. Is this the newest CYA...

Youth Hunt = )

Tomorrow kicks off youth hunt in Maine. YEAH!!! The season is finally here. And it makes me happy that I hunt on my own property because it assures me that no one can be killing my 10 pointer before I hit the woods early next Saturday. At least, as long as my deer...
