Note: I started writing this, saved it and realized I never posted. Sorry! Well, at least the weather has been beautiful and I can work on my fall sun/wind burn. Last weekend, we struck out again. Dad saw a coyote and a couple does but nothing big. It was a beautiful weekend and it was nice to be outside in such great weather. Dad said he will make a scrape near our stand to see if we can get some action that way. My father in law did get his deer but he didn't have it weighed. SO... I ask all of you to guess how big you think this deer may be. I guessed, they guessed and now I want your guesses.
Reason number 3,657,935 why my Dad is the best: As we were snowmobiling, we approached a bog and three eagles with about 20 crows took off. It could only mean one thing in my book - something was dead. We circled back and walked around in the snow but the birds had left and we couldnt find anything that would resemble a meal. A part of me thinks that we were in the wrong piece of land and should have been on the other side of the bog but in our snowmobile gear, we were not going to cover a lot of ground. I was disappointed that we couldn't find what the birds were eating but I was able to get some good pictures of one of the mature eagles and the immature eagle that were flying around.
