Lots of deer, no turkeys

Every time I see or talk to my Dad, we have a check in of local wildlife; have you seen any deer? where where they? how many tracks etc. Dad and I had a roadside chat yesterday as we met on the road and were headed in different directions.

The update: lots of tracks near the Sky Condo and he had done some pruning for this fall – we need one more clear shooting lane off at our 1 o’clock to be able to get some good shots along a well traveled deer trail. I asked about any turkeys he had seen because the season starts in just a few weeks. Nada. None in the woods and none behind the house. These buggers are going to make me work to get one of them in May! I say bring it on!!

Its a whole new hunting season for a new critter to hunt! If I get into turkey hunting, the year will become the following:

turkey season

ticks so avoid the outdoors season

deer season

deer tracking season

Sounds good to me!

  2. I love turkey hunting… the snakes and the ticks are the hardest things for me to overcome. Ick!

In the woods: Spring means ducks

Each year, a pair of Mallard ducks land in the pond. Most of the time, they leave after a week or so but this year, they seem to be staying around.  We are hoping for some ducklings later on this spring. Female Mallard sits on a potential nest while the male...

Sneak peak of wildlife

I got my Dad a trail camera maybe three years ago for Father's Day. This year, the hubby and I bought a camera for my father-in-law. We surveyed the spot where he usually is sits and looked for a good spot. In the over all scheme of things, I am a newbie hunter (9...
