Skylined
« on: January 07, 2018, 07:55:39 AM »
Had this one sit on the skyline, watching me at about 200 yards.  Not a shot I would take, so I tried waiting him out.  I finally tried approaching him at an angle, hoping he would come down from the top.  I realized he wanted to get past me, and didn't want to retreat.

Finally, as I moved left on him, he went back right, and down from the skyline, on my side.  As he went, I tried to parallel his direction, waiting for him to stop, so he reversed again, back to the top.

We went through this twice, and the second go 'round, I managed to get him stopped, and closed the deal.

Ya just never know how they will react, but this was a first for me.  Apparently he had never been hunted (private ground), and was probably used to seeing farm workers in the fields, handling irrigation hand lines.

Yeah, I will....just busy hunting and skinning right now.  Fur starts to go bad in a week or two, but I will get after  it sooner, if hunting weather goes bad.

Nice fur on the one you have down.

I got a kick out of how the pic below fit the title of this thread. Hand held camera in fading light made for a blurry photo.
