Deer Watching, October 20, 2010

Leaving the house around 6:00 PM, fifteen minutes later I climbed up into the new, tower blind and sat back and waited for the deer to show. The blind is set in a good place and here’s the main view.

By 6:30, the only thing moving was me sweating and the shadows lengthening, so I sat back and waited. A doe and her yearling showed up first and I waited for a good “shot” that never happened. Then a lone doe showed up and I got this “shot”.

Then another doe showed.

The later it was the more deer moved. Not wanting to risk the flash going off, I didn’t take any more “shots”. The total for the one hour, plus “watch” was 12 deer, one of them being a very nice, big, buck!
