Where you hunt pictures!

We have about 80 acres of family land to hunt on.

This spot accounted for 3 deer last year, one crossbow, one modern rifle, one black powder.


Another spot where I took a doe last Friday with the crossbow.
I'm standing where she was hit, looking back to the larger tree I was sitting at the base of. Distance was just a bit under 25yards.


This next picture is the same spot looking toward where she was standing, just in front of the tree with the forked trunk
I had to wait until she came out from behind the brush on the left.

This is a 180* cellphone panorama from my main ladder stand so its distorted, but gives you the idea of the woods where I do most of my bow hunting.


I hunted there last night for the first time. There's a grove of red oaks behind me that are dropping acorns and I was hoping that some deer would come in to eat, and 2 does did. I don't think they ever winded me and they were pretty close. I could hear them crunching acorns. I have a doe tag but it's too early in the season for me to shoot one. Also saw a family or racoons (probably the same ones that ate most of my sweet corn). I thought about trying to shoot one but didn't want to waste a broadhead. Jumped 7 more doe as I stepped out of the woods on my way back to the house.

I'm not as agile any more and as you can see, it's no place to make a mistake.

But once I get past all the natural beauty of the woods I actually get to do some hunting. Lots of game in here and there is a road for 4 wheelers to get us down here in the morning.
This is typical of the country where my wife and I have been hunting mule deer this past week - hilly, sagebrush, junipers, quaking aspens and the occasional pine.
And these are typical of the mule deer we've seen this past week - does and fawns! Oh, well. We're getting out, and we don't need the meat anyway. 🙂
