26 Nov 2020: The day of Thanksgiving. What did I do on this day? I spent most of the day out splitting and stacking wood. I enjoy doing that and it kept me busy and out of the house. The weather was clear and cold and every now and then I had to go inside to warm up. I did sneak in a cup of hot coffee. The deer were roaming about and me chopping didn't seem to bother them. A large covey of quail walked through the yard. They are called California Quail. Why? I don't know. A few Black Headed Grosbeaks showed up so I got a picture of them. I wasn't expecting seeing them this time of year.

25 Nov 2020: Wow, how time flies when you do nothing. This wet weather keeps me inside and not as active as I want to be. I did put up the new Confederate Flag and found a new home for the older, tattered one. I have an Instagram account and getting ready to delete it. The same biased punks who censor me on Facebook also run and censor Instagram. I don't need these butt-holes watching every word I type or every image I post. Now I have to figure out how to eliminate Google.

Whatever happened to the $29 cents a pound turkeys? I priced the non-frozen turkeys and could not believe how much they cost. I traveled to the store today and I think everyone in this town decided to shop for Thanksgiving today. I should have bought a Turkey tag and went out and shot one of the many Toms that show up here almost on a daily basis. I've never eaten a wild turkey but hear they are tough and stringy and have small breasts. No pun intended but I am a breast man as I only lide white meat from a turkey and that is where the white meat is.

14 Nov 2020: Deer season is now over with only one buck to our freezer. We still have one bear tag and one cougar tag in case we head for the hills hunting firewood. The little bucks around here are in the rut and chasing the doe's. Captured a few bucks on my trail cam sniffing out the doe's. We are in for a good storm tonight and all day tomorrow. It will be nice to sit inside and listen and look at the wind and rain. They are predicting winds in excess of 65 mph so that will be nice. Have nothing to do outside so I'll be watching a few old movies and enjoying the storm. I need to sell one of my deer rifles. But the laws are so damn crazy, it will take a lot of zig-zagging to do it and not break the laws on selling or transferring a rifle. But before I sell, I will wait until I know there will not be a civil war.

06 Nov 2020: The last day of the deer season and we came up with nothing. Didn't even see one doe. The only live game we saw was a chipmunk with his cheeks full of acrorns. We endured the rain, some wind and even got to the higher elevations where it was snowing. I could have filled my tag before we left the house as two spikes in the rut were just below our house and would have been easy shots. But they both lived for another day to mate.

01 Nov 2020: Another scenic tour up into the dusty hills. We saw one buck but it was dead and in the back of a pickup. A lot of little rodents running about gathering acorns for the winter and a doe on a ridge as we were coming off the mountain. Then two doe's beside the road on the highway before we got home. I call the day a picnic as we had a nice lunch and coffee. We sure need the rain. They are saying rain near the end of the week but for only a half a day.

03 Nov 2020: Break time on Ransom Ridge for coffee.

25 Oct 2020: Another scenic tour also known as hunting. We got skunked big time except for two hawks. The roads were dusty and most of the time the wind was blowing about 30 mph which helped fill up the 4-Runner with dust.


24 Oct 2020: We went hunting today up near Packers Cabin. It was not hot but damn dusty. We need rain so bad. We did not get skunked as we saw one doe, a herd of elk and 2 gut piles so somebody was getting deer. We might head out tomorrow and hunt Forest Service Road 1407 and Ransom Ridge. I still have my deer tag and Linda has a cougar and bear tag so we both will be hunting. I want to add to Lindas venison in the freezer. To bad we did not have an elk tag. There were two bulls in the herd.



24 Oct 2020: Packers Cabin Area; A small herd of Elk we came across





10 Oct 2020: FS Road 1407; Linda and her Deer
