Big Does

Here's the two big does I talked about earlier. They're coming up the trail about day break heading for their bedding site in heavy cover further up the ridge. They're probably coming from a big rye field about a 1/4 mile away. These are the type does that we try to harvest. I'm guessing both are around 200 lbs. and probably 4 to 5 years old.

Oh so beautiful!

I'm really glad you're back from hunting season as I enjoy your posts and comments and miss you when you're out in the woods away from technology! :)

They are beautiful does! Nice to have you back out of the woods Joe!

The beauty of these blogging engines and CMS platforms is the lack of limitations and ease of manipulation that allows developers to implement rich content and 'skin' the site in such a way that with very little effort one would never notice what it is making the site tick all without limiting content and effectiveness.

Umm, Brian, I have no idea what language you are speaking... but it is impressive, nonetheless.

Moving on. Joe -- these does are fantastic. Awesome size. On the aesthetic side, beautiful animals.

I'm glad you are back as well. Missed you! :)

Haha....I have to agree with Nancy and I won't even pretend to understand. But I will say these are incredibly beautiful, and they look rather large:)

Glad for your return!

They are huge. I have seen big doe's before and those have got to be near the top of my list. Thanks for sharing.

These photos are wonderful and precious because you took them in the wood. I also admire the photos from your previous posts.

Great shots! I'd like to feed them salt, myself, and watch them into the night.
