It is actually Killbilly's, but I like it ok. I think we needed a better .410 load, but it worked on the grouse.

I went out after work to do a little shooting. Shot a couple tight groups, spooked a couple deer and then went for a drive and this owl landed in front of the truck.



After a few pics a couple more owls flew in and this one took off like a scalded cat. Here is one of the two that flew in.



I set up the e-caller and they flew right over the top.
I took a ton of pics but due to lighting, lack of tripod, and a slight wind, I didn't get any that turned out worth a darn. But it was pretty cool to watch these two defend their territory.

They look like great pics to me.  What sound were you using to bring them in?

They were already in sight, but I used a vole squeak and a squirrel sound to pull them in close.

Can't wait until I get my deer and bear and then focus on coyotes and hunting with the wife's camera.  I would love to get shots like that.

It has been a long and busy week. With work and all the killing and butchering of my wifes deer and my bear I have not had much time to really chase the BT's. Maybe if it rains I will get a chance.

Killbilly and I went out for half a day today but only came home with some mushrooms. We found a few shaggy manes and some chanterelles. I brought them into the house and the shaggys started to go bad real fast, but I was able to use most of them in some hashbrowns that I made for dinner. The chanterelles will go good with fresh bear tenderloin later in the week. :drool:



Michelle and I spent most of last night canning bear meat. It is a long process, especially when you add the whole butchering and taking pictures. We did 32 pints and 18 half pints that I will share with her, Killbilly and my brother. Normally I am stingy with canned meat, but I still have a whole bear from September that I will thaw and can.

Went out for a couple hours this morning and only saw 4 does. Did pick some better shaggymanes though. When will it rain? Hopefully soon.
