For Normous

Post by Species8472 » Sat May 23, 2020 5:46 pm

As requested last weekend. Camera has been up for a week and checked it yesterday - 9000+ pics. 7 or 8 different bears hitting my bait. Nothing too remarkable but a couple of decent boars (200-250ish). Good 20% was coons but 80% were bears split about 1/3 daytime and 2/3 night, Boar pics were boring so I present the one momma and family who put on a good show. Show was even better in real life:

Haha, those little black beach balls are like mischievous monkeys. Last year Patti and I watched a Mama with two little ones on the bait and we laughed so loud that Mama gave a woof and sent them scrambling up trees for a spell till she gave the all clear signal to return clowning around.

I leave later this week with a couple crossbow lads from the forum. The promising boars on camera with make a fine rug for someone if we do our part correctly.

Might have to bring a fine Lagavulin for the celebration.

Good luck wishes to you too!!

Counting the days! :)

I'm just happy to sit in the Northwoods and if old blackie comes along then that's just icing on the cake! :)
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of truth is at hand.

Saw your pics on OOD. You gave a couple of absolute tanks. Good luck. Also you can never go wrong with Lagavulin 16 whether successful or not.
