    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.

    Game on camera, 1st grouse with the Jframe and some birdshot. Riding out to my stand to retrieve my heater and propane and my gear, grouse boogied off the trail and I stopped and attempted a shot and the plastic shot cup bound up my cylinder and it would not fire and could not open the cylinder, banged the butt of the pistol against the heel of my hand a few times and am able to swing out the cylinder. I inspect each round and drop them back in and try again, the grouse had ducked behind a spruce and got tired of waiting and peaked out to see what I was doing at about 10yds, bang, grouse for the smoker. 

    Deer season BLEW this year, son #3 felt ill the monday night after the first weekend, thought it was allergies since it was warmed up and all the snow we had melted, Tuesday by noon he felt like crap so we shut it down at work and off for a Covid-19 test which was positive, found out 5 days later, did not matter since we had to quarantine the rest of our rifle season, 2 weeks of lost income sucks but nobody had serious symptoms thank God, today was day 13 of my quarantine and my son was the only one that developed symptoms, I drove up 4 hrs to grab my gear, since everyone else was bailing out from deer camp in the AM, grabbed my stuff and drove back 4 hrs, hopefully muzzleloading is a better season

    Yeah, that’s a tough one for deer season. One of the reasons I’ve been “camping” in the blind this year is to reduce contact between different circles of people and anyone that may be elderly and or immune compromised.

    Sad news.  One of our Yard Art Deer got hit by a car.  The buck was stove up in the bushes on my next door neighbor’s porch, and the PD came out and put him down (with the cruiser shotgun!), then drug him out to the street for animal control to come pick up:



    Unfortunately, since the police were involved, and there was a call to TPWD and animal control, we cant just ‘make him disappear’ without uncomfortable and legal questions being raised.  Texas game laws are pretty strict about this stuff, because people WILL hit deer with a truck just to tag them And eat them.

    Such a damn waste.

    Yes, that does suck, that is a deer you want passing on his genes.

    I knew it would have been a good day to be in the stand.

    Wasn't of course :)

    Dang Scott good luck with the smokepoles

    It took me a minute to figure this one out. I first saw the puff of feathers and thought, "WHAT THE HELL???"
    Then I finally figured it out ;)
    I'll see if anyone else comes to the same conclusion

    That's my guess as well. Thinking it MIGHT be the Red Shouldered Hawk I caught on cam 10/17 (See post #1139 on page 38 of this thread)

    Had a new doe and dawn show up in the yard the other day. 
    The doe only has 3.5 legs!!  The back left missing below the middle joint. 
    She looks healthy enough. Can’t tell how recent the injury is. I watched her for awhile through my window as I have lights over the feeder. She walks around on 3 legs. Then, puts her half leg down when standing to help balance. The fawn wanders fine and seems healthy as well. 
    I planted 3/4 of my property with winter rye grass and we just had two days of rain. 
    Hopefully they stick around because they will have plenty to eat in a week or so.

    The number of regular does in my front yard is increasing!  We have 6-8 almost every morning and evening. Including the 3.5 legged doe and her fawn. 

    This plethora of does is attracting an increasing number of bucks as well!

    Ha, where there are girls, there are boys. You and the minions should set up some chicken wire to catch some sheds.

    I put a different food block out the other day and the deer LOVE it!!  The old one (left) has been there for months and they pick at it. The new one in the back, they ate a third of it the first night!!
