Some cool pictures
Up till this year , I've only got a few decent spotted fawn pictures ( and usually fawns that were weeks old , like this one )

Image

Then I got the cool " 2 days " old fawn pictures on Monday ..

Image

And yesterday after work , I was hiking by the river when I saw another doe with newly dropped fawn ( you can really see how small the fawn is beside the doe )

Image

Image

The doe busted out and when I walked up , I got two frames of the fawn hiding in the grass .

Image

Image

I backed off and within 5 mins the doe circled back to pick up the fawn ...

Image

A few days ago , I nearly had a heart attack when I was walking along a bushline and a hen jturkey umped out to wing beat me ... exposing her nest with 14 eggs .

Image

Yesterday after work , I picked up the farmer ( he likes to see that kinda stuff on his property ) and drove back to show him the nest ... we stayed back and I got this picture of the hen tucked back into the nest .

Image

A few other cool critter pictures from past seasons ...

Image

Image

Image

Image

And tonight , I was puttering in the yard and took a few pic's of my "home crew" .
( That's our lab " Jade " , and our daughters dog " Luna " = she is a recent pound adoption , part cattle dog / part shepard ? )

Image

" Spike " is still around ...

Image

Image

And " Gus " runs with the dogs as well ...

Image

" Luna " must have the herding instinct in her , beacuse she is always trying to herd " Gus "

Image

Image

Image

It's a big change for " Luna " ... from being a stray , dropped off at the pound and now enjoying some free range on our 100 acre farm ... she seems real happy , and is one of the 1st one at the back door when it is super time .

Image

Well thats the last of the pictures on my memory card ... will check in next week . Good luck to all in the last few days of our Ontario turkey season !

Page Break ... Saturday May 28th ( the last morning I was out during the Ontario turkey season )

Forum member TPM said ... " Hey RJ , why don'y you stay up all night playing cards , and meet me for a Saturday morning turkey hunt " !
( well maybe it wasn't exactly the way it went down ...   Embarassed )

But I did drive to the pre-determined meeting spot ... caught about 20 mins sleep in my truck .. TPM arrived , we loaded gear from his rig to mine and headed out to a new spot Sandman and I had scouted earlier this week .

Walked across the field in the darkeness ... stopped and set up at a corner section where I had seen birds twice previously ...

The morning was wicked foggy ... we had gobblers sound off in front and behind us ... we had 3 hens pecking out front at first light .... then a beauty Tom showed up and gave us a show for about a half hour ( well out of gun range and too foggy for pictures ) .

No amount of calling was drawing him away from his harem ... although one hen did break off and check us out ... here one picture that turned out , taken out of the blind window .

Image

And the only other picture that did turn out on this dull / foggy morning , was one frame of a jack rabbit running over the hayfield hill ...

Image

As hunters , we learn something new , every time we head out into the field ...

Today TPM said he learned " The hen turkey was attracted by our calling , was not spooked by our decoy , or by the camera chatter ( focusing / beeping / clicking etc. as it advanced frame ) ... and she didn't seem to mind the snoring during RJ's power naps !  Laughing

Good luck again > all that venture out to chase turkeys over the last three days of our Ontario Spring Turkey Season !
