The Scenery we see Hunting

The colors of Fall near Ransom Ridge




My Home Life such as it is

23 Oct 2020: Went up in the hills and cut a half cord of wood. That is all my little trailer will carry without overloading it. The wood is all dry and none of it has burnt bark on it so that is nice. I have a heavy rope that I take down to the logs, wrap it around the log I want and then hook the other end to my trailer hitch and pull it up onto the road to make it easier to cut into trailer lengths. I call it my mini logging operation with me being the choker setter and loader. I plan on going up for another load next week and while doing that, I'll be hutting going up and coming off the mountain. Today I cut some of the logs I brought home into the right lengths for our fire box.

19 Oct 2020: The warm days are still with us. Been working around the outside cleaning up the mess I have been making doing things. I have cleaned up the garage and downstairs patio where it looks okay again. I installed a new battery in the quad and it started right up with just the fumes in the line. I will put gas in it tomorrow and do some testing and if things are okay, I will be working on a trailer for it using parts from an old tricycle we have here. That should be interesting. I plan to go wood cutting this week and get in a little hunting while in the hills. I love going up to bring a load of wood back.

17 Oct 2020: We are back into hot weather with a north wind. Kind of makes it more difficult hunting as the forest floor is so dry, the deer can hear you coming a mile away. The first deer is all cut up, packaged and in the freezer so now its time to go get another one. I put a couple of leg bones out in the field and set up the trail cam. The last time I did that, we had four bears show up. This time, no bears but one fox that kept coming back filling up the SD card. I did capture a nice buck roaming about in the night and then another smaller buck chasing a doe with his nose in the air. Could it be the rut is already going on with this hot weather and all? Unusual to say the least.

11 Oct 2020: Late Friday night and early Saturday morning, it rained like hell and we thought it would be a nice day to go hunting. We left the house late figuring we would take in the late afternoon and evening hunt. We got about 4 miles up FS Road 1407 and this nice buck presented himself to Linda and a perfect neck shot killed him instantly. He was just ready to take off when the 243 bullet hit him and he fell where he stood. No tracking, searching or looking for a blood trail. Estimated weight was well over 100 pounds dressed out. Largest deer I've seen here in Curry County since hunting here. The antlers were not that huge for the size of the deer but you can not eat the antlers anyway.
