Doe sighting

Doe sighting

There are three does around my parent’s house.  One of them looks as though she doesnt have a tail OR that she has a solid white tail.  Over the past few weeks, she has disappeared, presumably to have a fawn.  I couldn’t zoom in as much as I needed to, but I think this could be here.  I spotted her after I had put O to bed after his day long birthday party.

 

Also, there were not a lot of deer pictures on the trail camera when I checked it the day before.  A couple does, a racoon and some caterpillars crawling over the lens.  We need to mow the grass down and hopefully we can get some bucks walking through.

But, there are deer around and I will take that any day.

  1. It's good to see them! The majority of fawns should be born right about now. Kyle said 95% or 96% percent of does are bred the third week of November.

    I added a 4' wide strip of brassicas, legumes, sunflowers and roots to the food plot this morning. I need to get the tiller off the tractor and the mower on next. It's kind of too bad I don't have a baler. It would be great hay!

Kim Rhode is my new hero!

I had no idea who she was. I was stuck watching the bike racing, some volleyball, maybe a little swimming and gymnastics. I would have had the TV on the entire time if the TV station had skeet shooting on. Especially since Kim Rhode became the 5th individual of all...

First day of turkey hunting

It is hard to hunt anything when there are rain drops falling off the trees.  It is probably the worst during deer season when everything sounds like the snapping of a branch.  But, this was my first day of turkey hunting and having never been before, I had...
