This little fellow was taken in 2007 with a bow. Last I heard, they hadn't found a scorer with the confidence to try it. This is one seriously lucky hunter. (I did get his permission to post this photo.)
Another lucky bow hunter.
Same lucky bow hunter a season later.
This one was a good 14 pointer, 24 inch inside spread. Scored in the 140's after being docked 13 points for one tine being broken.
This ol' boy had 18 points over an inch long and 21 we could hang a ring on.
This buck has a nice down tine on the left side.
A little doe looking for breakfast.
Young buck found some breakfast.
Spring Turkey hunting is very good in this area. This ol' Tom is trying to impress this girl. She doesn't appear to be interested.
Turkeys passing by.
Spring time "traffic jam". Four hens and lots of babies.
I was lucky to have my camera when this Bobcat happened to stroll by, although the early morning light was poor. This fellow is about 16 to 18 inches tall and would likely weigh about 30 pounds. These are relatively plentiful in this area but live sightings are not common. There are some larger, long tailed, wild cats in this area also. I have personally seen 4 over about 25 years. Other evidence of these appear as large tracks and an occasional attacks on domestic animals. So they are in the area.
I was fortunate again when this little Grey Fox happened by. These are, in my feeble opinion, more rare than the Bobcat in this area, but they are here.
These Geese stopped by on their way south for the winter.
Ducks on the pond with the pup on point. Well, not really on "point". But ready to scare them off if they get close enough to the bank. Good dog. Good dog.
This area of north Texas really is rich in a wide variety of wildlife.
