    with "real life" stealing my in the field time and scouting time, i was stoked to see him. was with 4 other bucks, he seemed to be the leader.
    ...perhaps he found me!
    lots of turkeys too

    found a set of bear tracks along the other side of the field. looks like it may be a productive year for me, even with my time constraints.

    Well...... a bear tag, a turkey tag and a deer tag would be nice. LOL :D Just joking.

    Literally in the last hour I seen cottontail, dove, quail and muley with horns nearing the 20" mark. It was pleasing to see.

    Cool pics and thanks for sharing!

    Great pics, even with the cell phone. I feel you on the time constraints. I'm hoping to get a few days off for antelope season in Oct and a few for deer in Nov. If so, That will be all of my "extra" time off for the whole year. One of these days I'll slow down. :D

    i tell ya, this was a pleasure.

    i did have a stand (is now a highway) where i got 2 PA. grandslams (deer bear turkey in a season) 5 years apart, and had taken several turkeys and deer in between, along with dozens of squirrel. without using baits and such.

    this new spot has the potential to be the same way, within 10 minute walking distance for the vehicle. plus in the fall it attracts mucho geese, which i'm going to try for the first time this september.

    i hope i have some "after" photos to post up in november of that buck!
