Sat in the blind with my son tonight for his first bowhunt this year due to his football injury/arm cast he received only a week before opening day.

 

First we saw a small bear headed towards us which I alerted to our presence. It quickly turned and ran off. No deer were seen tonight, however we counted at least 10-12 different black squirrels in front of us. This is one of the only spots we have seen such a large concentration of them. Red headed woodpeckers, countless blue jays, and a fox that was sitting on top of the biggest boulder on the hill above us and was skylined like a king for over 30 minutes..My son thought that was the coolest sight of the night, and needless to say it was a good sit. . Took some pics as well as attached two trail cam pics of what appears to be a blue jay up close in personal, and what I am thinking is a good size yote.

 

He also always bring his favorite "lucky" antique knives, one is an antler knife and one is a small deer hoof knife. Both were with him when he shot his first deer and have been in his fanny pack ever since whenever we go out, lol.

I am looking back at the pic now and think you are absolutely right.

I probably shouldn't admit this on a hunting site but I get more excited about the birds I see while hunting than the deer.   :lookaround:
