The morning was slow.Only saw a Bluejay and a housecat.The housecat had no idea I was only 15 feet away and when I moved on purpose it leaped away in a hurry.haha!(no camera)

I moved into a different spot and 20 minutes after a sat down out comes a little doe skipper.She had a face off with a ruffed grouse hen for scraps under the apple tree but decided nothing decent was left to eat and walked away. Shes about 30 yards away in this shot.I tried to zoom the partridge but my editing skills are left to be desired.

After about an hour or so out come two button Bucks.The smaller skipper is more trusting.I say smaller but they are probably twins,its just that this one has nubs instead of spikes like his brother,who is a bit more leary about coming out in the open..

I couldnt believe my camera started taking flashes,but they didnt seem to mind.I must have hit the button because the doe had her pic.s without it.You can see the lit up eyes in the two Bucks.This ones antlers were about an inch long.They need to be 3 inches to be legal game.If their antlers are longer than their ears,its a good bet you can take them.He did venture out a bit but kept his distance.

On the walk home I saw a rather nice tail.Couldnt tell how big the deer was,or if it may have been the doe,(the Bucks had already passed by far behind me going in the opposite direction).All in all an interesting day.I know there are "seed deer" for next year if they live to come back barring vehicles and coyotes.Plus I think I might bring my shotgun too next time because I havent got a bird at all this year.Theys mighty tasty!

LOVE THAT DEER MEAT!! MY NIECE LIVES WHERE DEER PLAY IN THE YARD [LIKE AT RICK'S HOUSE.]

LAST WEEK SOME ONE KILLED ONE CLOSE TO THE HOUSE AND GOT A GOOD CHEWRING OUT AS SHE HAS TWO SMALL BOYS THAT COULD HAVE EASILY BEEN SHOT WHILE PLAYING IN THE YARD...PLUS HER AND YTHE HUSBAND DON'T WANT THE DEER TO NOT COME AROUND NO MORE...THE HUNTERS COULD HAVE GONE A MILE OR MORE BACK IN THE WOODS AND GOT ONE THERE INSTEAD OF HUNTING SO CLOSE TO THE HOUSE...[:mad:]

SINCE MY BROTHER PASSED AWAY I HAVE NOT HAD MUCH DEER MEAT,HE USED TO KEEP ME SUPPLIED.I HAVE NEVER BEEN MUCH OF A HUNTER...NOTHING AT ALL AGAINST IT...I WAS ALWAYS TOO QUICK TO SHOOT AT WHAT EVER MOVED..NOT GOOD!

GOOD PICS. AND GOOD HUNTING!! JAMIE

Walking out in the cool, early morning air, your heart pounds and you approach your favorite spot. There it is, your stand. This year's models comes pre-equipped with a warmer so you don't have to sit in the cold.

Hey Jim.Tell your buddy way to go for me.I love venison and all this summer I thought I was out of deer steak and found a few packages of sirloin under a box in the bottom of the freezer!

No offense to your not finishing my name,but Id rather be called Wangan or W or most anything but late for supper."You can call me Ray,or you can call me Jay,but just dont call me Johnson."[:D]

Wangan (Won-gan) = your belongings
