Back In Civilization

I'm baaack :)! Back where I have to mind my manners...say please and thank you and no belching at the table. Bathing regularly....O.K. I'll admit I have to have a shower at least every other day or I go crazy.

I had an O.K. hunting season so far. We killed a couple of nice buck. I had to settle for a 7 point cull buck. He had a tall spindly rack. Not nearly the type rack a deer of his size and age should have. It did dress out at 155 lbs. so I got a good start on filling the freezer. Just didn't see many shooter bucks this year but still enjoyed the time in the woods and at the cabin.

I pulled two of my cameras before hunting season started so I only have two cameras out. Didn't get a whole lot the last couple of weeks. Below are some I liked from earlier this month and last month. The first three are from the day after the early October snow we got. I liked the background colors in them. And the last three are a reminder that I'm hunting on a working farm. My farmer buddy cleaned out his manure pit the week before the season started. Luckily my camera was in the corner of the field at the gate and didn't get sprayed. Remember the dates are off on this camera as the display has gone bad and I can't chnage anything.

Back to work tomorrow and a normal schedule. Got a couple of more hunting days scheduled and hope to get back to Maryland fishing again before the season goes out up there. Going to try to catch up on all the blogs I regularly follow. I'm sure I've missed some interesting posts.

I also really like the background colors from these shots. Very nice. My son did get a doe with his bow, but has not had any luck yet with his rifle....

Whoa .. not what I expected to be spreading manure! You're right, the background is quite pretty with the fall colors. Welcome back!

Congrats on the buck and the start of filling the freezer up! And welcome back. We have another season or two before we wrap up our deer season. We hope to get another one or two ourselves. Good luck with the fishing!

Hey! Do I smell poop? ;)

I wondered where you had been for so long. Pretty funny about getting flying manure shots : ) That's a lot of meat already.
