Pictures from October and November
I hate my rural internet connection ! I typed this up after work last night , downloaded all the pictures and when I went to hit submit I lost connection
Been awhile since I posted some pictures , hope this thread works .... Here are some off the camera from October / November . ( my small pocket camera )
I couldn't find the old thread that had the step by step pictures of the Vixen snow camo paint job , but this picture shows the basic white / brown cedar pattern .
A quick duck set up near end of October .
Mike B's young female lab did the hard work and Janus posed with some ducks on his first hunt using his new Remington 870 pump .
My Tom turkey " Gus " , struts his stuff while I'm out doing yard work .
Like many in my area we had a slow Shotgun season ... We did manage 3 does from misc farms in WMU80 ... I didn't take many pic's
One morning a foggy sunrise did catch my eye , so I snapped a picture of it ...
Big Congrat's to Doug M's daughter " Morgan " .... she bagged her first buck with an Excalibur Exomag .( she has taken four deer total with her crossbow to date ) ( has turkey , coyote ,and ducks to her credit as well ! )
She was hunting with her Dad , from a ladderstand on the edge of a cut corn field ...
Four deer came down about a half hour before last light but presented no shot , then this buck came in broadside @ 12 yards ..
Complete pass thru with a Muzzy MX4 ... approx 50 yard recovery . ( fell close to the truck as a bonus ! )
Doug said " By her reaction after the harvest , I really don't think it would of matter if he had two or twenty points ! "
A proud father moment !
Rob H. ( aka Helmut ) , is putting his Excalibur Equinox thru it's paces , and recently took this beauty buck ! ( 2nd whitetail this season , and actually his # 1 , # 2 crossbow deer , since he bought his Equinox last year )
It went down in WMU61 , he let a doe walk in and pose as a live decoy ... Then this buck stopped by with another doe in tow . Approx 25 yards shot from a tree stand , Easton 2219 with 150 grain boltcutter broadhead did the job , he said it sounded like a 2 x 4 hit the buck ... ( devisating double lung ) . The buck ran 35 yards and as Rob stated , was kind enough to fall beside a fire road for easy pick up. ! Congrat's Rob ... great looking buck !
Here are a couple other " beauty bucks " ...
( not taken with Excalibur tackle , but great looking bucks and honorable mentions none the less )
Gabe M. , took a beauty 8 point in his shotgun area ...
And Jason B. took this " Awesome Muley " during a recent rifle hunt in Alberta ! ...
( He also took a beauty Whitetail but the picture I had was kinda blurry . ) ( Gotta love those Muley / Whitetail combo hunts ! )
The only other thing that caught my eye recently was a single strand of barbwire running through a tree on my property .
( Man that had to have happened a few years ago ! )
Have fun , Hunt safe , enjoy your time in the field !
