Good to be back in the woods with Jr tonight


Recommended Posts

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'm thinking red-bellied woodpecker on that bird.     


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


Man I tell you, the rest of the state has to lookout out for those Spartans! Good athletes and keen eyes! :up:  :up:
