    That's what I call a comfortable ground blind.

    The property I hunt also has many raccoons. They feed with the deer every night. I have many pics from the trail cams and have seen the deer leaping and playing. Sometimes the deer will chase each other or other animals. Never know what they are thinking.

    My son was out early this morning at the back end of his property sitting in his ground blind and got this photo...just so you know, the smaller deer is real. He passed on shooting it to give it a chance to grow up.

    Son got a nice doe on 13 Nov 2017 just before sunset. He used a Barnett Ghost 415 Revenant at 35 yards, deer dropped within 20 yards of being hit. He still has not seen the bigger bucks as yet so he decided to get a doe first to fill the freezer and still have plenty of time to get a buck. Greene county is a two deer county (but only one buck).

    The farmer that had 8 acres of corn on my son's property harvested his crop today. Sure doesn't take long to harvest with the right equipment. Next year plan is for soybeans.

    I was watching deer in my yard once and every now and then one of them would jump/leap like this, in a certain area of the yard. When I went to mow the lawn, I found a bee hive in the ground in the spot.

    That's awesome, thanks for sharing. No telling what I'd be doing if some bees started sizing me up for an attack...

    I can say with absolute certainty, I would be moving as fast as an Adrenalin rush could take me. Unfortunately, it would not be near fast enough.

    Now the corn is cut, the deer will probably more active feeding on the spillage from the combine. Best of luck with the harvest!

    I walked the field after the combines have been through and swear not a kernel is dropped. These new heads don’t leave anything.

    That's interesting. We'll walk his field and see if that's the case. If it is, we'll probably build some raised feeders.

    My son did walk his fields and did find corn spillage so at least there is some food for the animals. We're invited to his house for Thanksgiving and will have a smoked ham, ribs, chicken wings, all the trimmings. Daughter was hunting there early this morning (Tuesday), and will be helping them do some baking (pumpkin bread, pies, cookies) - so much for my diet, this time of year makes it hard to be good.
