Game Camera Pictures And Garden Greens

I finally started getting some pictures of Bucks at my feeder instead of just Does. I think I can identify at least three different Bucks.

WGI_0034

This Buck has a smaller rack

WGI_0050

This one is different still, he has more curve to his tines.

WGI_0064

Here is a doe with two Fawns.

WGI_0072

One picture with a Doe and her Fawn, a squirrel and two crows.

WGI_0095

This pictures two of the bucks at one time. This time of year they still hang out in bachelor herds, but soon the urge will hit and they will start fighting each other competing for the Does. Sounds like us guys doesn’t it?

WGI_0107

This is another Buck with small, close set horns.

WGI_0136

The Turkeys are still around.

WGI_0145

Sometimes the deer and the Turkeys come out at the same time.

WGI_0142

This is a different Buck, he actually has a half-way decent rack.

WGI_0144

And of course, I still have those dastardly Raccoons hanging around! I haven’t seen any signs of the Foxes this year, I guess they moved on after we moved in.

I planted 4 different types of greens right before the last rain and I got a good stand of all of them. But if you look at the lower right corner you can see the greens look awfully thin.

And this is why, Armyworms! We are having a plague of Biblical proportions. The worms have been destroying lawns and pastures all over the area. When the grass is gone, they move to the nearest available host such as my greens. I hope they go away soon or there won’t be enough greens for me and the deer to eat. Keep prepping everyone!

Trail Cam Pictures

I looked at my game camera pictures this week and once again proved my neighbor wrong about game not coming to the feeder this time of year.

WGI_0349

Even this skunk likes a little corn for dinner.

WGI_0244

The crows like corn but I already knew that from watching Saturday morning cartoons.

WGI_0256

No wonder I lost all my corn to the coons, there is a whole stinkin’ family of them!

WGI_0403

Those young turkeys are starting to get big. Just about right for the roaster aren’t they?

Now I need your help with these next pictures, click on them to enlarge them and give me your opinion. I guess this animal is a tall, lanky house cat. I first thought it might be a small bobcat, but the tail is too long.

What do you say, big house cat? I am going to swap cameras tomorrow, I think the other camera takes better pictures, maybe I will get another chance at him. Keep prepping everyone.

I checked my camera today and I had a lot of pictures of the deer and turkeys on the homestead, I even have this one with them both in the same picture.

WGI_0080

You can see three poults with the hen in this picture. One morning I went to the back and flushed her up with 8 poults and they scattered in all directions. I stood there quietly and in about 60 seconds she started clucking softly trying to draw them back to her in the weeds. In the background of the picture you can see some tall looking vegetation, that is where I tilled the ground and slung out a bag of mixed bird seed and it sprouted and came up. There is a lot of millet and other seed crops that put on a seed head and the birds are having a feast on it.

One afternoon Sweet Thing looked out the back window and told me to come look. There are two foxes in the backyard just lounging around like they own the place. She asked why they weren’t more afraid of us or the dogs than they were and I explained we have never given them any reason to be afraid of us yet. When we get some chickens and other small livestock that may have to change, but for now I guess they can stay.

PRMS0123

The young one sure is pretty, it looks just like a long-legged, gangly teenager doesn’t it?

Speaking of Wilma and Jethro, here they are resting after we took a spin around the homestead. Maybe when it cools down more I can get a picture of them without their tongues hanging out! Be prepared everyone.

Trail Camera Pictures

I put my game cam back out after having it sit in my office since Christmas. I put it on a trail real close to the back door of our house.

PRMS0053

I had a picture of this rabbit.

PRMS0017

Right about the same spot Mr. Fox came sniffing around. This is within a stones throw of our back door!

WGI_0034

I got a new camera for Christmas, and I put it in the back bottom where I had the food plot. Wilma and Jethro are romping and playing and sniffing all the deer tracks. This camera takes really good pictures in the day time, but really lousy pictures at night. I have several dozen night-time pictures of deer in this same spot, but you can barely even tell what they are.

WGI_0033

Here is a big flock of blackbirds swooping down like something out of a Hitchcock movie! Stay prepared.

I have noticed the animals are moving more at night lately.

PRMS0013

I still have not seen any bucks, just does.

PRMS0592

Got one up close of the squirrel.

PRMS0586

The coon and the possum are still coming around.

PRMS0886

And the big red fox is still around. More to come.

Game Trail Camera

29 Oct

I am still getting lots of pictures of the does on the homestead, but I’m still not seeing any bucks.

PRMS0224

Here is the doe with the two yearlings coming by for their daily feeding.

PRMS0434

This is a big ole nasty Possum coming for a meal. I don’t have any use for Possums, I don’t know if I would ever be that hungry.

PRMS0447

This squirrel came by for some corn.

PRMS0456

Here is Rocky Raccoon standing up and looking around as he comes by for his free meal. I’m still hoping for a Buck, so stay tuned.

Deer Trail Cam Pictures

8 Mar

I went to the wooded area on the homestead and picked up my trail camera and brought it in. The deer have shed their antlers so I won’t be able to get any good photos until this fall.

PRMS0016

You can see three deer in this picture, at least one of them is a buck, you can see the bumps on his head where the antlers have shed.

PRMS0022

He knows the camera is there, he just can’t quite figure it out. He’s not afraid, just curious.

PRMS0027

You can really get a good look at the bumps on his head where the antlers shed.

PRMS0032

He just keeps getting closer and closer to the camera, he’s really curious.

PRMS0044

This is a big ole doe looking at the camera, wondering what that strange sound is. I’ll move the camera up closer to the barn for the summer and see what I can get a picture of, then I’ll place it back on the main trail this fall.
