March into April
In the last stretch of March , I got an invite to dine on some fine wild game with the Petersen clan and friends ... Basically , it's made up of misc game donations from the group , then Court P. and his Dad , cook every thing up , in time for the group feast ! ... Here's a few shots of " some " of the tasty treats I sampled ...

Canada Goose done Egg Roll style !

Image

Moose in an awsome gravy !

Image

Battered duck !

Image

Pheasant in sweet sour with BBQ sauce !

Image

Stewed Rabbit and fixin's !

Image

Venison done on the BBQ , shiskibob style !

Image

And my absolute favorite was Duck breast wrapped in bacon with wine !

Image

I filled my plate many times over ! Laughing

Image

Hunting tradition runs deep in the Petersen clan .... That's Court's Grandfather on the left ... 91 years old and still gets out there !

Image

The last of the snow melts away as we head into April ... The warm winter kept the deer in good shape .... a doe and fawn stayed on my property pretty well all winter this year ...

Image

Starting to scope out misc Tom's in our area ...

Image

Last week in the rain , I saw some Tom's cutting away hens and young birds already ...

Image

A redtail hawk stops by my place almost every day now , checking out the squirels in the yard ...

Image

And of course , I couldn't resist , confirming the condition of the back field , by wadeing the Jeep into the bean stubble slue .. Laughing

Image

Ducks and geese paired up everywhere you look ...

Image

Image

Image

Still the occational single around ...

Image

As we do some spring scouting from farm to farm , I see a doe stoped for a look under one of the many new climber trees we carved last season ...

Image

Randy and I got a quick look at this "sprinting jake" in the back field of one of our favorite spots ...

Image

We bumped into this groggy ground hog on another farm .... he looked "cute and all " with some clover still in his mouth ...

Image

But soon started the "teeth chatter" routine when I got in too close with the pocket camera !

Image

Image

Found time to pull down some old ladder stands for future relocate ... the truck works good to yank out 12 inch spikes , when you forget the pry bar ! Laughing 

Image

Image

Tonight I took a walk close to home , before supper , got some cool shots of the misc pond critters that were out in the late afternoon sun ..

Image

Image

Image

As the evening wound down , I drove about 10 mins away from home , along a road that I haven't been on for awhile , then I spotted some turkeys , way out in a field ... I asked around , found the right landowner ... asked for permission to take pictures .

The woman that owns the farm thanked me for asking , and mentioned she had had problems with tresspassers in the past , shooting turkeys right up behind her barn Laughing ... She granted me permission for pictures and I walked to the back of the property in time to see two jakes with four hens heading into the bush ... I managed to get one decent ( although distant ) picture when one of the jakes was strutting .

Image

As I walked back to the farm , I cut through the back bush and got one quick frame of a racoon suning up in a tree ...

Image

With the sun on a downward arc , I took a quick shot of the old barn on the property as I walked back to the house ...

Image

I stopped and thanked her again for the opportunity to take pictures ...We talked for awhile , and she offerd me an opportunity to return for pictures and a future bow hunt ..... I'm looking forward to that , as it is a beautifull property !

Good luck to all that are out scouting in Ontario , and Best Wishes to others , who's spring turkey season has already started !
