Dad went to #Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving and took the #stealthcam trail cam with him. He set it on an apple tree in gramps backyard. So many deer in some pictures they just blurred the photo’s but he got some good ones. It's not uncommon to see many #deer in peoples back yards in this particular neighborhood.
Met my buddy Ken at our usual spot and he brought his grandson with him, I followed them to the gun club we were going to. We met three other guys there we use to work with, then we drove down to the co-op area, we had seven hunters and two dogs. Wind was blowing pretty good so when the birds got up it was like they had afterburners, man they were moving. We took turns with the dogs and the shooters, a winged rooster managed to avoid the dogs and us for over ten minutes, someone should have had a camera. After an hour and a half we were limited out with 14 birds, 9 roosters and 5 hens.

Saw nothing again yesterday afternoon, heading out now for the #Connecticut opening day of #deerhunting shotgun season A, 27 degree’s no wind to speak of so should hear anything coming from pretty far away.
Headed out Saturday afternoon around noon. High winds and snow filled the air. As soon as I get into the woods I catch movement up ahead on the hillside. Wasn't sure what it was as it moved fast and looked very dark to me. Seconds later I see legs moving through the cover and then a deer emerges. Then possibly a second deer. If ask me it was a buck chasing a doe. Just the way it was behaving. I couldn’t get a real good look since they were at least 80 yards away. Before I knew it they were up and over the bank and out of sight.
