Just thought I’d post a few of the pictures I took today on our short hike. It was short because we had to beat the rain storm heading our way. We caught these deer bedded in the already tall grass.
It doesn’t get much greener than this.
We took a good hike across that hill and heard a turkey gobble. To my surprise I took the diaphragm from my pocket and called this big boy into about 100 yards. With no camo on and two dogs beside me I was surprised he didn’t catch us earlier. Especially since it looked like he had been fooled before.
Most of this is just so-so chukar country but the grass is just as green there.
I can just imagine about the middle of June and eggs start hatching in all this cover.
They’ll be able to hide from the predators while filling themselves with nutrients from all of the bugs.
Pretty to look at and a good and possible dream. Nature is being pretty good to the animals so far.
