Late October and into November 2012 ... a few pictures .

Postby R.J. » Mon Nov 12, 2012 10:09 pm

Hello all … Hope everyone is having a good season !

I have read many great successful hunt stories and have seen some awesome field pictures as well !

If I missed anybody > just want to take a minuet to say congrat's to all the successful hunters !

After the first week of bow season , things got real busy , and I didn't get out that much …

As things got colder in October , the yearly mouse round up was under way as the little critters tried to get in every nook and cranny ( a seasonal thing when you live in a rural setting ! )

Image

As we headed into the last few weeks of October , I finished a few last minuet projects that my wife had on the list ( new floor and toilet in the front bathroom , and started stripping the back bathroom ) … that's as far as I got and as far as I'm going now the season is in full swing !

Image
Image

My daughter moved out last spring for school , but misses the farm > she stopped by to visit and grab one of my buck mounts to put up in her apartment …

Image

Out scouting , I happened apon a young porcupine , and got a few cool pictures of the encounter !

Image

Image

When the colder weather started , and the moon phase was awesome for deer activity ( Late Oct / Early Nov ) > Big buck movement increased and some mature bucks started making mistakes as the rut kicked in ...Here is a beauty buck that Doug M. took with a carved limbed Excalibur Exocet !

Image

As we moved into the first few days of the November Shotgun hunt , some other nice bucks bit the dust … Here are a couple cell phone pictures sent to me from Jessie N. and Vic R . , and I tagged on a small cell phone picture forwarded to me from Wylie H. of a Monster 8 point taken in the Pushlinch area .

Image
ImageImage


For the first time in approx 25 years , I was working during the first week of the shotgun hunt > I was on afternoon shift , but was able to get out a few mornings with Randy S. and his two sons ( Joe and Rob ) … Here is a picture of Randy and Rob crossing the field after a push .. We moved a few does on drives , and I got a few pictures .

Image
Image
Image
Image

Then Randy's son Rob ( who is newly licenced and has only been out with us a few days ) took a beauty 12 point buck at one of my favorite properties that has produced for us over and over again , year after year …. How's that for a first whitetail !!

Again > Conrat's to all > Keep the stories and pictures coming !

What dandy deer!!! Love the pictures. Thanks!

Tell Rob he might as well quit now, as he's already taken his deer of a lifetime. Congratulations!!

PS. I like the way you positioned the mouse's leg for that perfect photo. Well done on all of 'em Rick.

Good to hear from you Rick!
At least if you aren't getting in much deer hunting the trapline is successful. :lol: :lol:

Awesome! Nice mass on those bucks and I liked the second pic of the porkie best of the three.

Always enjoy seeing your pictures!

Thanks all ...

Yep the mouse trap line has been a huge success this season ! :lol: And that is exactly "how he lay" when I pulled open the drawer ! > Was thinking I might get one mounted like that !

The porqupine pic's were a treat > I like to get unusal pictures of critters I don't see every day ... There eyesight is poor and when I walked up on him he gave me the evil eye as he tried to focus on me , which made for a comical picture !

And yep some real nice bucks reported down in our surounding area ... it has been a good year for mature bucks so far !

That small cell phone picture that Wylie H. sent me of a buck taken in the Pushlinch area is a real " Monster " :shock:
