Road Trip Pics of some deer and a grouse

6 posts in this topic

I needed to sight in the rifle so Lisa and I took a ride and she wanted to see the deer farm. We were also looking for anything that might make a nice shot.

Bold man, taking a rifle and a camera to a deer farm. Which one do you really want to pick up when Mr. Big comes out? shockedshocked

Those deer farms sure can produce nice bucks. I'm surprised you could even see the grouse, let alone get a sharp shot, in that cover.

I spotted the grouse sunning along the roadside (we really didn't see very many either frown ) and as soon as Jim popped out to snap his pic, he darted under cover. Sneaky chubby fellow!

The deer farm deer are just so healthy and fun to watch. They hide behind tiny trees and peak at us and that buck was something to behold! I was riveted by him. His rack is mighty impressive.

I snapped a couple of a pheasant hen and one of an eagle around Little Bowstring but I am just not a very good photographer yet. Sure is fun taking a drive on such a beauty of a day though!

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
