Joe I was leaning over taking pics of him/her thru the balusters, when it started towards the house and rear stairs. I turned around to go inside and came face to face with another that had come up the stairs unheard behind me. We were about 5‘ apart when we noticed one another. it spun and was down to the landing then down to the ground before I opened the door. Never been that close before. Amazing animals, fast as heck and unbelievably athletic.

Took my 4yr old fishing for the first time, he caught a few fish which he really enjoyed and then wanted to play/explore which let me get a few casts in. I caught a few fish and hooked back to back 19-20" bass off some old dock pillars and he got to help reel them in.

I liked fishing a lot more than hunting when I was a kid but haven't touched a rod in years so I wouldn't mind if the kids ask to do some more fishing while they're young.

Hung two more taticams today, got a buck picture within hours of getting them out. We are up to 14 taticams in the family running on 3 properties. No issues to report and they work so well for us not being local to any of our hunting access.

Turkeys are still strutting too! Yes I'm more excited to see this than velvet bucks but it's getting close to me being more interested in the 4 legged critters

Couldn't help but take more notice of the tom as well. Looks like he has some good spur length to go along with that thick lookin' beard he's sporting. Who knows...maybe you'll catch up with him in 2022 ;)

Slow day at the river today (as I expected), first fish was a 15" smallmouth so it wasn't all bad. I caught 6 more fish and counted 17 boats...most of which weren't having much luck. Along the way I jumped a doe from her bed and soon saw my first fawn of year (I'd guess about about a week...maybe 2 old) as it hurried after her. Been a decent pic but I wasn't the least bit prepared for it.

Only pics I took were of a butterfly. Had another with it at first that was black and blue in color but it flew before I got near. The other was much more reluctant to leave...couldn't say exactly what it was feeding on or actually doing but it lowered it wings in a defensive posture when the camera got near and I took advantage of it.

First year buying mine online. Was pretty painless and I bought 2 DMAP tags too. We will see how soon it takes them to come.
For those that ordered online in past, how many pink doe envelopes do you get? I hope they send a few.

First year in a while I haven't bought my license the first day they are available. Guess I'm getting soft. Our son graduates tomorrow night and I'm off the following day so I'll head to a store and buy it Wednesday. I can't bring myself to do the initial purchase on-line yet......too many delays I've seen in years past. But......I will remember to buy a muzzleloader tag. ;)

That $30 I spend every year on a pheasant stamp is the best $30 I spend all year.I don't count how many birds I kill but I suspect I killed less than 12 from OCT to feb last year because usually the only time I take a shotgun is if I'm hunting by myself.However,I'd say I watched at least 75 birds bite the dust over my dog's head last year.The reaction from those doing the shooting and the smile on my dog's face makes it worth every penny.

It wouldn't be worth the $30 if I just went out a couple times beating some brush but that's what makes it nice.If you want to play and have a really good experience,that stamp is the best money spent all year.

I get it. By the time I'm done with just me and my son's licenses it's over $200. Sometimes my daughter will say to buy her one too.
