No matter how hard we try, the majority of the critters we see are either in or next to the road we drive. I guess we just cover too much ground while driving. Passed this buck on the way home the other day. He’s not a huge buck but he is pretty.
Gopher snakes are harmless, but it’s surprising how many are killed by people who fear all snakes.
Here he is again a little closer.
The blacktail buck was laying only a few yards off the road, but in the shadows, he almost went unoticed.
Only a couple more days left to hunt on the ranch. I’ve got a couple of bucks I’ve been watching, but so far they have managed to survive. Maybe this weekend…
This guy doesn’t quite make the cut, but he’s close.
