Well, I checked the camera at Wardney's salt lick yesterday. I had 157 pics, that was a 7 day check. We've had some very strong winds off and on, I had more "empty" pictures than normal. Blowing the tree limbs around, setting off the camera. The camera is mounted on a cedar tree, I hate to cut that limb out of the way, my camera would stick out like a sore thumb.

This is the best daytime picture, I think the one buck has about 3 inches of horn so far.



"Man, I've never heard of that before. So if the landowners says you can kill 10 deer, you can just start dropping them?"

No, that's not what I meant. Anyone hunting on private land needs the landowner's permission. If the landowner tells you not to kill female deer, you'd best not kill any females.

The property I mentioned above, where the guys killed 15 or 18 does last season, that was up to the landowner. He could have told them to back off. I know the man, I expect him to tell his guys to cut them some slack before long.

I checked the 3 mountain cameras yesterday, it had been 34 days since I'd changed sd cards. All together a total of 574 pictures. Had a bunch of "empty" pictures on camera #2, that camera is up high on the west side of the mountain, a couple of the storms that we've had lately, had wind gusts up to 50 or 60 MPH.

Lots of bear pictures, picture of a bobcat's butt, 1 coyote picture. Several coon pics, one pic of a gray fox and coon, nearly nose to nose. Who knows what happened after that?






Biologist Teet's stopped by the other day, we had a good talk. I really hadn't noticed it, but most of our deer still have their "winter coat". We had a really good acorn crop last fall, we still have good acorns laying on the ground, sprouting. And we've got a bunch of little oak trees, 6 inches tall coming up.

Mr Teet's said it's like we had more acorns than critters to eat all of them.

I'll add more pics later.

I checked the camera at Wardney's salt lick yesterday, in 2 weeks time it'd taken 250 plus pictures. Nearly all of them are night time pics. As well as I can tell the adult does are still heavy with their fawn(s).

Didn't really have any good buck pictures, the one buck has about 4" of antler so far, about 2/3's as long as it's ear.

Notice how they've got the mud stirred up.
