I'm lucky. I'm home in a warm house and I have a 80lb. chocolate lab draped across my feet, keeping them toasty warm as I type this. She's happier about this than I am but that's OK. She's VERY happy! Tomorrow I'll venture to my sister's place where there will ...

High plains guzzling...

Riverdrifter

Last weekend a friend and I fled west on US 56 about 330 miles to a ranch (owned by friends and relatives) to get away from the local fall festival. The trip was worth every mile. We hunted some ducks on the Walnut river and got one single wood duck. ...

Just_take_one_more_step, dude, please...

Summer's long gone and the deer are now entering the pre-rut stage. I have two trail cams out (down from three, an old one failed this week) and activity is picking up gradually. The first image is an old buck that just wouldn't take that extra step and give the ...

Earnesto, the longshot...

Riverdrifter

Hey, look, we're burned up here. The pastures are flat-out burned up and everybody is already feeding hay. The corn crop?! Ha! Soybeans: think lentils. Gardens? Withered. The crop insurance has been collected and the corn junk in the fields has been chopped and dumped in round bale silos and ...

Hot summer at the mineral lick...

Riverdrifter

One of my trail cams caught this picture at a mineral lick. Them bucks, they be liking the mineral this time of year as they know they need the good stuff to build antlers. Anyway, it's a bit of a confusing image at first take. Just thought I'd share it. ...

Winter...

Riverdrifter

It's been an easy going winter here and not so bad up north either. Here's the Edwin H. Gott, a Great lakes ore freighter, coming in to Duluth harbor to dock for winter layup until March, the last of the boats to come in for the season. Note the absence ...

Cooper's or Shinnie? I give up -but Happy New Year!

Riverdrifter

Of late I've finding the dead and stripped carcasses of the local pigeon and mourning/collared dove populations in my backyard under a cedar tree. In fact, early this morning one almost fell on my head. It was deja vu all over again from winters past and I quickly noticed this ...

Late Night With Trail Camera -The Equal Opportunity Feeder...

Riverdrifter

Well, a deer feeder is just like a bird or any other feeder: come one, come all. Throw corn out on the ground and like it or not, you've got friends way beyond deer. The most popular customers are the wild turkey (meleagris gallopavo) and the common raccoon, (procyon lotor). ...

Late Night With Trail Camera or, things that don't go bump in the night -they just vanish...

Riverdrifter

Well, autumn is here. The deer are not yet on the move as the rut approaches but that will change soon enough. I've had three trail cameras out all summer over mineral licks until recently, when I went to feeders -a term I use lightly as they aren't used to ...

Stands Alone...

http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2009/Dec/22/IMG_0055.JPG Dec. 21, late, I grabbed two bottles of Pale Ale and a camera and ventured out to a nice spot. It's private, takes 4wd, high-clearance and involves 3 mean-ass locked/high strung gates. My goal was to capture the sunset of the winter solstice. It was chilly & the wind ...
