Mix and Match

Got a nice variety of game last week. I moved two of my cameras to new locations. One location I think is going to be great. It's on the edge of a ten acre woodlot that we use as a sanctuary during the hunting season. By sanctuary I mean no one hunts in this woodlot. It's in the center of the farm and the does like to use it to bed in. This is great because that has the bucks moving through other woodlots to get to this one to check on the does. The other camera location is on a steep rocky ridge. I'm hoping to get some bobcat and fox pics there.

Packing all of my gear back in my backpack after setting my camera.
I liked this shot of the little doe.
This young six pointer knows something isn't quite right.


I think this is the same fox. I liked the color it has especially the black leg stockings in the last pic.


































Got these two nice bucks at daylight one day on the power line. This camera's IR pics always seen a little grainy.


















And of course a raccoon. It must have been lost since there wasn't five more with it :). This was on the steep ridge I mentioned earlier.

Well that is neat that you got a shot of yourself too. Funny how the doe is crouching like a dog to try to figure out what is going on.

Nice pics and I do like seeing that fox again.

I'd say that you're out of your slump!!!! Great deer photos!

I finally got a bobcat on our driveway. Elsewhere in our forest, all the animals seem to have evacuated. It's this way every year. If I were smart, I'd go someplace else too :)

Nice variety there, Joe! That's not a bad looking buck...he'll be a good one in a couple of years. Happy New Year!

Well hallo,lost raccoon...! He slipped away so as to not have to share food with everyone else..sneaky bugger! That little doe done a graceful picture pose there. The six pointer is learning to be crafty...

First of all - Happy New Year!
I always enjoy watching foxes on your pictures-personally I have never seen such in a forest-I guess they hear people too well

Those are some real nice pics you got. I want to put my cam back out but I have to figure out why it is nit working.
