    Nov 21 - a worked over Frasier fir tree, not much good for hanging ornaments now.   



    Have a Happy Thanksgiving...

    and I hope you enjoy this Bald Eagle video (photos and production by yours truly). Outdoor wonders never cease to amaze me.

    Nov 30 – Only 3 hunts since Nov. 17. The lockdown is a tough one, as always deer movement at a minimum. When returning from a morning hunt yesterday, I walked past the NW Corner stand… a large scrape very close to the stand (visible in photo).



    This morning’s hunt reminded me once again how things change drastically after breeding and gun hunting. Mature mama Does are very cautious and spook easily. With foliage down and freezing temperatures common in the mornings… their noses pick up anything that seems out of place. Sure enough, when this Doe walked the same path that I did one hour earlier… she picked up something not right and backed out instead of crossing the creek. Looks like she is injured in some way, she's limping on her left rear leg.



    A very rare moment at 10:00 this morning - an opportunity to film a Ring-necked Pheasant. They are usually in heavy cover and I only hear them, very rarely see them. This rooster was enjoying some left-over corn before it gets plowed under later this week. Not sure what spooked him… but he got out of there in a hurry.

    Cool videos as usual, thanks. Man you ain’t kidding on the lock down we haven’t been seeing much movement either here in TX. Also we had good rain this year so not having to come out of cover.

    So, when there is little to no rain... you guys are hunting water holes where there are no continuous-flowing creeks or water ditches in the area?

    No just saying they have more acorns and grass to eat. Don’t have to move much to find food.
