Kentucky trail cam pics

It looks like we may have some nice bucks around this season on our Kentucky lease. Back in '08 a 150" 8 pnt (22" wide) was taken along with two other nice 8 points and several others were seen. Last season was not so good, but it seems Mr 2008 may have left some seed for a new crop this season. Here are some trail cam pics just picked up yesterday. The camera's storage capacity (1,000 pics) was reached in about 2 weeks.

soon actually

Actually Ky bow opens on Saturday, but it is near 100* here today and that spot is full of skeeters.   We normally start hunting there mid October for early M/L. If there is a cool spell, I can go bow, but normally do not until about 1 October.

Kentucky bow

The first time I ever hunted bow opener at our Ky spot I gotten eaten alive by the skeeters. It's very swampy there and by the time I got home that day, it looked like I had the measles!! lol

I remember those days in

I remember those days in Vermont.  However, in California, water is scarce enough down here that we rarely have to worry about mosquitos.  Some places, yes, but not most.

Great bucks and with all the

Great bucks and with all the seasons getting closer I'm really getting wound up. I know archery is going here now but I don't hunt that one and it has just now started to drop a little in temps. According to the news we had one of the hottest average Augusts in history.

As far as the skeeters go I don't miss them at all. We have some here but even in a wet year like this one I have only seen 2 or 3 all summer. Even around ponds and streams I am more likely to get bit by a couple of deer flies than anything else. By contrast I remember when I was a kid in northern Wisconsin and the mosquitos were an audible noise you could hear when it was quiet in the evening,There were so many it was a light buzzing you could hear. Them and the ticks up there I don't miss at all.
