I struck out on the season. I was after 1 buck that I've been trying to shoot since 2009 and because of his age I'm afraid he may be the one that gets away and dies of old age, but I had fun with the camera this year on trips that it wasn't raining (which were far and few between, but no complaints we needed it)

Cool pictures. Looks like some predator management might be on the docket though!

That's some nice looking country you've got there. I agree that some predator control might be needed. With all those cats I'm surprised you've still got a woodcock left.

I would love to get pictures of coyotes and cats too, only problem is my 22-250 has a knack of barking first!

I do agree with IKIC, the cat pictures are amazing. I don't get the opportunity to see those much in the daylight. Crafty little buggers!

Nice pics!! I will probably start bringing a camera more often next year since my daughter will be big enough to tag along. Then 2 boys right behind her.

Thanks fellas. I work on the cats & yotes in the offseason to try to keep the place quiet during deer season. Well...I shot one cat late one morning that was the biggest of the bunch (he's the one posed in the field in a fuzzy pic) to have a guy do a full body mount on him and have a woodcock to go along with him on the mount. Surprisingly we've got a ton of birds that come through, but weather kept them moving a lot this year. There was one stretch of about a week with no weather changing things up and I'd see 20-30 come out on the food plots before dark.

Great pics thanks for posting them.

It looks like its time for some predator management. Give me a call if you need that Bobcat and some coyotes eliminated. ;)

I like the bobcat pictures too packmule. I saw one a few months past and tooks some pictures. I don't see them out that often but it is cool finding them when I do.

I usually don't see them that often, I might catch a cpl every deer season walking along the edge of the field, but this year was different. We added a mile long food plot (pipeline ROW) and they seem to like cruising down it. You sit up there at night and call & you won't see them, but coyotes will be on you in a hurry.
