An Afternoon Hunt

December 30, 2012

This afternoon I took off and went down to my granddaughter and her husband's land to hunt south of town.  The temps were in the mid-40's and got on my stand around 3:15.  It has been awhile since I have had a chance to go hunting and was glad to get out of the house to go.  Only saw two yearlings walk out between 5:10 and 5:15 and enjoyed watching them.  Also, the owls, squirrels playing and barking and the birds singing their hearts out.  I also had a small stream running by my stand and was nice to hear the water trickling along.   An 8 point and a couple of does have been taken off of this stand this season.  Our hunting season will be over with by the end of January 2013.  My husband and I have been invited to hunt at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club with my blogging friend/mentor and his family soon.  We are looking forward to our hunting trip and hopefully harvest a deer and maybe a hog or two.  Below are a few pictures I took while on my stand today.

Yearlings came out at the far end of the road and walked from left to right..

Rocky vs Flip

December 24, 2012

For hunters and nature folks...once you watch this video on the website ( you will witness a very rare battle between two extremely large "bucks" that have locked their horns and get into a vicious battle.  It has a happy ending. There is sound but not loud enough.  

This is one heck of a fight in nature's realm.  An awesome video!

I was contacted recently by Virginia, new media coordinator, who runs the blog for Pocket Ranger® apps, a line of mobile tour guides for America's state parks as well as fish and wildlife apps, and she wanted to feature me in an upcoming post.  I was deeply humbled that I was considered to be featured and commented that my blog was great and very thoughtful, and certainly something that resonate with my readers.  I was also given a brief question and answer to fill out.
