I had cleaned and re-leveled my box blind I use for hunting/photographing the other day and had a chance to spend a bit of time yesterday evening with my camera. Fall is a great time to be out and about and I am so thankful I have a tractor that I can maintain the place and allow moments like this.
A couple of small bucks stopped by for a visit and then as I left to drive home I caught this ruffed grouse in full display.
Just for a chuckle…….Walking my dogs this morning….off in the distance seen what I thought were a couple pigs meander across the road. Thought for a minute…we don’t have feral hogs around here…not sure about my eye sight…went to investigate…sure enough…texted my neighbor at work who has a small hobby farm…sure enough he has a couple….he was just getting ready to do a presentation to the general manager at his production plant…lol. He managed to sneak out to save his expensive bacon! Helped him corrall them back up. One had to take a quick mud bath before going back in the pen.
thanks - I didn't realize they had the spot pattern. The trail cameras are fun- we have 2 now and have learnt a lot of who goes where when - including 1 black bear. Not a great shot or I would share it.
Today was not a great picture taking day due to the overcast washed out looking sky but I still enjoyed getting to my land for a few hours today. Central Wisconsin in my opinion has had one of the best fall foliage displays in many years. I hope others in different areas of the country have experienced the same thing!
The white in the center of this picture is my outfitters tent and camping area.
A disappointing game in the third round of post-season with a loss but it was a beautiful afternoon yesterday for HS football. This TD was called back because of the no hurdling rule in HS football but it was still a beautiful display of athleticism by the running back.
