A weekend back I took the 35mm camera, sniping shears,corn knife and ladder stand to go do some pre-season scouting and to beat back the brush in an area that I plan to hunt at.
We are getting rain in my local community but 125miles north is a whole another ball game. No hurricanes and very little rain have left most of the the area dry. I mean bone dry with no signs of water. These same areas that use to have standing water from 2" to 4ft or even more are not show NONE water.
I still was able to get some pictures of deer/squirrel/turkeys and I even got jumped by a sml hog.
i would like to share these with you;
Here's a deer that I stalk across a pasture about 75 yards away. Purr fect broadside shot if I had a rifle but this area is no centerfire zone so I would have to take a shotgun or handgun.If you look closely you will see the sihoulette of a deer in the center screen.
anybody that hunts would recognize these. These turkeys where strutting across a dry mash that use to be wet. I counted 6 toms with short beards. Use the back foliage to break my outline up I was able to squat and get within 20yards. Only if these birds would have shown up during spring turkey season I could have bag a tom.
Looks like you had a real eventful weekend my friend.
You saw a good deal of game and had a good time doing it. Man those trees sure do look different than mesquite! :supergrin:
I still need to get down there and get the Oceola turkey and get this Grand Slam going one of these days, and i think you still need the Rio, and Merriman don't ya?
