Well So Far So Good It Seems !!!

We shot these Photo's today on 3/27/08 while out hunting for shed antlers again. I thought I'd share with You just how healthy the herd is looking in Western NYS, The Deer look to be in Great shape as you can plainly see in the photo's below!!  Everywhere we went today, there were deer right out in the middle of the afternoon feeding.  I believe the reason for this feeding frenzy is simple , We are expecting another snow tonight & tommorrow :( , And the deer are feeding in anticipation of this impending Storm front . It has been known for quite a long time that deer like other animals will feed heavily just pryor to & after a stormfront moves in & after  the front leaves. But Overall at least here in Western NYS the Herd just looks Great!!! and  In good overall health and Numbers. That can do nothing more than offer another Banner year come this Fall  during the 2008 hunting season. Well hope you enjoy the pics as I did taking them and seeing such a healthy herd once again this year. I will keep you updated more as we head back out in the Great Outdoors. Looking Foward to the up Comming Opener for trout season as well !!! :)
                       Until Next time Have A Great Day
                          Be Safe Be Happy
                          May GOD Bless

At least from what Myself & Wife Carol have researched, here in Western New York State. The herd looks to be in fairly good health. Myself and My Wife (hunting Partner), Carol have been out scouting on several occassions , Providing the weather was feasable to do so. I have been taking Pictures as well as Video, while on our trips out to the woods,  looking for shed antlers. The majority of deer at this time of year are now traveling in large groups once again. They normally travel in large groups through the deep snow to make various paths leading to & from bedding & feeding areas, etc. to cut cornfields, or leftover cornfields etc. And traveling these routes makes it easier to navigate the deep snows by making paths that look like they were shoveled, by having several deer travel together & continue to use these same paths over & over as long as they are left undisturbed. I notice usually the same day the manure spreaders hit the field , the deer are not too far behind eating the leftover corn from the cattle at the various farms locally & across the state. Turkeys are in huge abundance as well. We have seen countless flocks of turkey, turkey vultures, & several crows at these same locations. And with Turkey season just around the corner, we were pretty excited about seeing them in good numbers as well. The area by where my hunting camp is at, is loaded with trails leading in & out of the farmers field adjacent my property, with everything from rabbits, crows, turkey , deer, & various other animals. I have taken several Pictures and believe that due to the melting snow between the heavy snows this year, the overall herd will pull through nicely barring any severe weather conditions, that last several more weeks, as we have only found 2 deer that didn't survive the harsh weather so far this year, opposed to many in past years I've found . But these were younger deer possibly late 1-st year fawns, at least where my camp is located at, and an area about 3- square miles around that. Below are some pictures , myself & wife Carol took while out on one of our winter scouting trips. Though the quality was not the greatest on some pictures.  You are able however, to see by the size of the animals they look to be in pretty fair health. I will be updating with more pictures & video soon, as we are supposed to get a slight warming trend possibly as soon as next week . My Wife and I will be back out hunting for shed antlers.  So I will update you more then.
                  Until Next time have a Great Day!!!
                     !!! Be Safe & May GOD Bless !!!
    Below Are Some Of The various Pictures I've Taken Enjoy!
