Nothing on the next two stands. Set up buy some persemons and pomagranet trees. Peeker miss one about two weeks ago here. With a rifle! . Started with the rabbit stuff. right away one comes in right in front of me, never slowed down and never was close for a shot. Was sneeking into some adult peaches and I see movement out about 70 yards. Get down and take a good look. another one taking a nap. He's in the center.
Get in a better angle for the shot. Telling my self easy 20 yard shot. pick a spot. Just beind the head should get the body also.
Start to draw and it looks up at me. We sit there staring at each other for what seems like days. It then gets up and walks away. Gets out to maybe fivety yards sits and scratces. Game on. Did some sqeeks . it turns and looks my way.
He gets in the next row and stands there. two more sqeeks and he's walking back. Gets to fiveteen yards and starts scratching again,tilts his head twords the side he's scratching. The arrow is on its way. His backend goes down and he falls over backwards gets up and tries to run but it looks like he's tangled up with the arrow. Drops for good. Another big old male. First one with this short bow. Been playing with it I can shoot this thing while sitting up aganst a tree. Think i found a good calling stick.
Pretty healthy but had a bit of mage or an old scar on its back. This is the last one for this year. one more week of work then its off to the other side of the country to have Christmas with my son . Wont be back til Jan.

And why you would turn around and put not only your bow, but your mouth call on it's back?!?!?!
No wonder you run around in blue paint and a loin cloth
And all this time I thought it was the lead in the blue paint that made you

Anyway back to why TD is insane, it's not the blue paint, it is the loin cloth in that valley air that makes Thumper the way he is . . Just my thoughts, Ed
He's been cheating during the winter time though Ed. I was hiding in the bushes with one of those mangy, sleeping coyotes when I caught this picture of him wearing pants today
