Welcome back friends

Welcome back friends

I convinced Dad to put the trail camera back out at the Sky Condo to see what deer are around and made it through the winter… and it was like seeing old friends.

Five healthy looking deer!
Last year’s fawns look good as yearlings
If you zoom in, you can see antlers beginning.  This is one of those 8-pointers!

It is always great to see the healthy does and in some shots, one looks like she could be pregnant but what I loved was the picture above that shows antlers beginning.  Looking at his body size and shape, I do believe that this is the smaller of the two 8-pointers. 

We are keeping these cameras rolling, but in the three days that we had it out, we had almost 450 picture of the deer as they walk through and eat at some of the grass that is beginning to grow.

Could this be the year that I land one of the big ones?  Who knows, but at least I know that it’s an option.

One road and SO many signs!

Grand Falls for lunch
