View Full Version : I took my cousin's son hunting - pics and videos

We went out Saturday afternoon. On the way into the farm I took this pic. Check out the doe in air over the fence.

We got in there and I took this pic over the hood of the truck.

The guy is in the blind for less than two hours and gets this. If the deer had waited another 10 minutes to come out it would have been too late to shoot.

Sunday morning we went out early so I could try to use some turkey tags. Before most of the turkeys woke up something bothered this one and he flew off the roost 50 yards from us and landed in the tree above us. The turkey may be hard to see. It is just above the center of the pic, sitting on the limb that is jutting down towards 8 O'clock in the pic, and just a little to the left of the end of the big branch. You'll see it in the videos.

I shot two hens. This is the first. They are in my freezer waiting for the attention of my wonderful wife.

I hope these videos work.

The video in this first one is nothing special but I like listening to the turkeys wake up. The beeps you hear early in the video are my cousin's camera when he turned it on.

Some of the video is a little blurry in this. It was fairly dark, I was using a small, inexpensive camera, and tried to zoom in too close a few times. It's hard to see how the video looks from the LCD display. I love it when the bird in the tree above us takes off.

Here are a some more pics. I'm getting ready to shoot a turkey. If you look above and to the right of my head you can see some black specs near the yuccas.

There go the survivors after the shot.

Here is the payoff.

The rifle is a .22 magnum. The handgun was for thinning out the pigs if I saw any.

Great ;)

Where was this at? also the second photo with the turkeys coming into the clearing, how many birds where in that flock?

It's in west Texas. There were probably 40 or 50 in that bunch. It's not unusual to see 100 at the same time there. The area where those are walking is about 50 yards wide and 300 yards long. I've seen it completely filled with turkey. I mean the whole 15000 square yards looked about like that bunch.

If you look in the pic after I shot you can count at least 25 in the air. It's kind of hard to see in the little pic but they are visible in high res pic.

If you can sit still and quiet enough not to bother them I think it helps the deer hunting because of all the noise and movement they make.

You just spoiled the guy. Now he's going to think every hunting trip ends up like that.
