My home PC out of service
, kept me off the net for awhile , and an old back injury flares up > keeps me close to home ... but here are a few pictures I took off the memory cards today .Catching up on my forum reading
... some beauty whitetails taken in the last few months of the season ... Some great stories and field shots submitted as well Congrat's to all !A doe and two healthy fawns
stayed around my property till seasons end ... Found a few new spots
where the turkeys pass from one property to the next ... this Tom , in a hurry , squeezes through the fence .Picked up a couple stray kittens
, that are keeping the mice down in the barn ...My daughter
moved out in the Spring for College ... her Guinea Pigs and Rabbit , moved out to the Turkey pen .... They seem to enjoy the hay bale maze .Christmas rolls around
... my wife loves to decorates the house with greenery gathered on our property ... And we have an awsome Christmas dinner with my daughters boyfriend and his parents . The snow comes and goes ...
never amounts to more than a couple inches and at time of writing , has pretty well melted away ... I have the property signed " No Tresspassing " to keep ATV and Snowmobilers from inturupting my hunting , but still get the odd dimwit that can't seem to read the sign's ! .. I took this guys picture as he screwed up an evening stand at Christmas time The wind knocks down some branches
here and there ... our big old female Lab " Jade " , loves to putt along the trails ... but is just as happy lounging in the house ! A couple young bucks
have been hanging around ... hope they stay till next October and grow some bigger racks !Over the holidays , my wife sent me out
to pick up some bread and milk ... I found it amusing to see this couple using a different mode of transportation at the grocery store ! Our back trails are pretty well clear
... Which is unusual for this time of year .The constant freeze / melt cycle
has the local critter confused as well ... they don't know if they should fly South or hibernate ? When my back is bad
... I stay inside and tinker with misc projects , like turning this older model 870 Wingmaster into a new camo stocked / scoped slug gun .Won't be long
till we are all out after the long beards ! ... and posting pictures like these again !Good luck to all that brave the cold and are fishing the " hard water " ... And good luck to all moving into the Ontario Spring Turkey Season !
