A couple highlights from a recent hunting trip and some moose fights we caught on camera in September 2021.

Here we aren't seeing the bigger white tails we saw last year, but they still are curious about the scrape and seem to enjoy the willows. This WT buck with the one tine makes his way all the way to the East quarter from time to time.

Contrast between an older buck and smaller ones is pretty apparent here

*3 x WT Bucks (1x 2-3 year, 2 x 1-2 year)
**3 x Mule Bucks (2 x 1-2 year, 1 x 3-4)
***Coyote Puppies

White Tail seem to be a lot most sparse this year than last. Wondering if it is the drier weather or a hard 2020 hunting season the year previous. A longer video because I hate editing. There is a good sized Mule deer here I will upload to another playlist. The deer seem to prefer crossing through the south end rather than the north, consider the volume of animals on this camera versus the 1 in the North of the bush.

The contract in size from a young buck to a older bruiser is a demonstrated here.

Got a late start with camera's do to work, thought we'd set up a lick away from the planned blind to see who shows up.

Looks like I was wrong, there are two buck. Looks like the brothers from last year may have made it through.

Late to the game trail camera footage, so far looks like 1 buck made it through the season from last year. And damn coyotes.

They are still there..... Maybe one will find an arrow this year?

This is from a sit a few days ago, and the camera footage I just uploaded - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFjq-Bpn1Rc&t=236s

About an hour before this I saw the big Mule buck and his buddies at first light, I tried to film but it was to dark. About 2 hours later this little guy cruised by. It seems all the Mule deer on this piece of land are hanging out together but this guy is on his lonesome.

As I mention: I got permission on right before bow season. With few animals - early season - appearing on cameras near my Ameristep Hard Blinds I set up this one using the camo netting in a new spot. I left it for 2 weeks alone, poured some code blue and it looks like they like it here. Was out last weekend but no shooters - we only have tags for mule does in this WMU.

This guy and his buddy like to sit infront of my 3rd favorite spot about once a week. This was the blind I had to move due to the landscaping changing around harvest - https://www.bitchute.com/video/5L3N1vqdUdRz/

I have only sat in the blind twice. No action, my cameras there however regularly catch moose (odd Mule or WT doe) when I am not around. This spot I probably won't sit again for the rest of the Bow Season, maybe rifle.

I put a blind in the area I got permission on right before bow season.

Stalking Mule Does, this buck kept getting in the way.

The blinds have been a bust, almost no white tails. So we decided to spot & stalk mules on some pasture land.

Sometimes you just got to send it.

Due to a change on the land, and a great lack of trail camera footage we had to Improvise & Adapt. The blind on the West Half Section was moved to a new location, this video goes through the reasons, and the new strategy.

See here for highlights originally from the blind spot I picked.

First Day in the Blind, east quarter section. Saw a lot of Mule Does in the distance, and a few deer on the way out. This young fawn was the only one to come close.

Last week I set up 1 of 2 Ameristep Brickhouse pop up blinds. This one is just North of the "Bush League Blind DIY" I set up - https://www.bitchute.com/video/QQzughvVNFtc/

In this video I run through why I chose where I chose to put it, as well as some deer patterning chart I put to together to help me to determine best window (AM or PM) for bucks, and when I have a good access window. Watch and find out, I can go more into that table/chart if requested in another video. The second blind video I may not put up as it could be a bit redundant, however I will let you know how both of these blinds perform this season.

Looks 1 one of the "target bucks" may have a twin. They guys look like brothers!

This is from a new SpyPoint I put up in early July.

Turning out to be a great camera, #6. Main goal of this camera was to see where they are coming in from the south to help patterning for entry this bow season.

Enjoy!

I set this camera up late June 2020 just off a heavy trail. I made to mock scrapes, it appears the bucks are interested. They come about 5 feet off the main trail just to much on the willows I bent down and check out the scrapes I made.

Since then we have moved the camera, to see why click the previous link for a detailed walk through an commentary.

Looks like got buck passing through we became familiar with last year. As well as the doe we though recently fawned shows up with her new baby.

This camera I set up in the south end of the bush on the East Quarter Section to see when and where the deer were entering in.

We scouted this spot in the Bow Season Vlog - https://www.bitchute.com/video/MwaCUauf6PDh/

Looks like it panned out, everything from moose, bucks, to extra shots of the grown up coyote pups. Enjoy!

Here is a trial ground blind I put together. The two Ameristep blinds I have are $200+, they look great. But if they don't last this year I want an option that is;

A) Portable
B) Won't cost an arm and leg.

So here is something I put together. I will keep you informed on how it works out this year.

This spot gets me less decent footage than I like, the WildGame Innovation cameras trigger late on deer going by, and are set off constantly by the wind & the grass. This time we has 1300 videos and limited wild life pictures, from the sign in the scrapes (Hoove prints, nibbled branches, etc.) they are coming through more than I think the camera shows, the wind just triggers the camera too often. I will likely set my blind up between this camera and the one further south, see 2:40 of this video for the mapping - https://www.bitchute.com/video/cZ8ysghnY6Wx/

Looks like we got some new friends too, Enjoy!

We have a couple decent bucks coming regularly. I set up my blind about 20 yards from this spot.
