Buck Sightings

Two of my favorite things I get to do on the ranch are hunting and fishing.  We are very fortunate like that, but it does seem the hunting and fishing days are getting replaced with fence building, corral expansions, spraying for weeds, spreading fertilizer, working the cattle, doctoring the calves, shipping the calves and cow feedings.

Luckily, I’ve still managed to set aside time for the deer camera season.  That’s right “Deer camera season.”  I'll bet you didn’t know that you were missing another season!  It runs from April when the bucks start putting on velvet to late February when they drop their antlers.  You don’t even need a hunting license.  This season is new to me in the last couple of years, but beware the wives don’t seem to understand.  Mine in particular doesn’t like that she can’t find a battery, SD card, and sometimes her laptop (my battery was low) within a 6 mile radius of our house.  Wives just don’t get it!

But just look at what my cameras ‘shot’ this season:

That's so cool! I got my husband a wildlife camera for Christmas and he has yet to use it! We've had everything from a doe sighting last week to bear and fox. This has reminded me we really need to get an SD card...

Thanks for the comment. One thing I've learned is one SD card is never enough. If you have two you can trade the cards out and never have to move the camera.Plus when you loose one you have a spare. Good Luck and if you get a picture of a bear please post it. Thanks

I just don't like when my laptop gets taken on the 4-wheeler out to the middle of nowhere just to get deer pictures! Seriously, is that necessary? And heaven forbid one of the SD cards goes bad before we get the pictures off of it. You would think the world was ending!

These pictures did not even include the one of bigfoot. Now if we could just get a motion picture of him or the mammoth. Oh! right!. I keep forgetting the mammoth is still dead.

It's hard to believe the 20,000 year old mammoth is dead!
