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!

That is our mentality as we drag that target outside each weekend and measure out distance in the snow. For three years, I have been after this huge buckand he has stayed nocturnal.  After this past rifle season ended and Dad stayed in the woods with his muzzle...

The best thing about deer season is…

Besides getting a deer, it's the quiet of sitting alone in the woods.  I have always felt that sitting in a tree for hours is kind of like having a zen moment (or hours) and I love it.  I don't think I have appreciated it as much as I probably will this...
