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.

    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!

I have been meeting all kinds of folks thanks to my interview with Steve. And as I have had time, I have been reading other people's blogs about hunting. Yesterday, one blew my mind. I think it was because I had never tried the movie feature on my trail camera and I...
