Last Friday night's take. Had to improvise on the coon shot. The coon stayed behind the bait feeder for 25 minutes not affording me a good shot. The batteries eventually went dead on my IR leaving me with a complete black out. Fortunately, I had along my Scan-pro headlamp and was able to get it turned on and directed at the coon, giving me enough light to make the shot. Improvisation at its best! I had a spare set of batteries with me which I switched out and about an hour later shot the wood rat.

Sometimes the game cameras catch some pretty amazing things at the bait piles.
Here is one video of a Red-tailed Hawk and a Bald Eagle sparring over a meal. Thought ya'll might enjoy.

Coon shot was creative, hawk eagle footage was a great catch. That's a determined brave hawk for sure.

Agreed weekender! Brave but foolish hawk.
If the Eagle wanted, it could have easily riped that hawk's brave heart right out with it's switch blade talons and razor beak. Silly hawk.

Good job Gobbler. Too bad the batteries went dead, but you improvised and made it work.

Good Morning gentlemen...and ladies if any are on here(hate to assume there are not). Evidently I have not gotten them all yet. Had some luck this morning at the 170 yd site. Male pup. R700 .22-250 with a 45 gr Sierra spitzer running at 3800 fps. Won't be skinning this one...I think the fur is over. #13 on the bait and 1 calling, for a total this year so far...14 coyotes. It has been a good year this year.

Side note:
I pulled the trailcam video and was able to watch several 5 sec videos of this guy. He was tearing up the beaver that I put out several days ago...not on the deer. Just an observation at this point, but I do have a good supplier of beaver carcass for next year. It may be something to watch. Oh yah...the kill shot video...plum took him right off his feet. Good stuff!!!
Stay after em!!!!

Thanks guys!! Here is my issue with videos...first I don't have a youtube account or anything like that to host a video. The main reason I don't is because I live out in the sticks and have satellite internet. I have very limited data on the package that I am running, so videos have been pretty much a no go here. Videos burn up a lot of data to upload and download. And, I have to tell ya, when you run over...ooohhh slow to no internet. So I have kind of learned to run with what I got for now. You should try raising teenagers on that plan!!! Anyway, Maybe I can sneak one in sometime...if I can figure out youtube. Apologies guys, until I upgrade a package or figure something out.

Baitpile, nice job once again. You have had a very good season. Looks like that 45 grain bullet did a real number.

As to slow Internet and teenagers, you may be blessed with that one.

Actually 6mm, looks worse than it really is...just lots of blood. .224 entry hole and about a dime sized exit. That bullet has been performing well with no fur issues to date. And definitely no splashes.
My boys are actually older now, Air Force and college, but did have this package when they were in school. Boy, no youtube and knocking them off snapchat and what ever other computer stuff they were into...yes, a challenge. But we made it.
