The cabin and surrounding forest is extra quiet and peaceful at this time of year
Anyone else punchin’ tags this year? Or are ya eating tag soup?! 😂🤷🏼♂️🦌

My final Tolkien-reference (#sorrynotsorry
) with regards to these beautiful woods, which, last Saturday, reminded me of Tolkien’s magical forest of Lothlórien, “Valley of Singing Gold” ✨💫
Over de beek in Landgoed Beekhuizen zie je deze kleine bruggetjes - in mijn ogen helemaal Tolkien, en letterlijk, want: Rivendell 😍
Als je vanaf het Bezoekerscentrum van @natuurmonumenten
in Rheden de wandeling van 9,5km start, dan kom je op een gegeven moment uit bij Landgoed Beekhuizen - en daar vind je in de herfst een gouden beek die door een oranje bos stroomt, en uitkomt in deze prachtige vijver. ✨🍂 Hier zie je de beek de vijver instromen via een miniwaterval, vanuit dit perspectief net een #infinitypool
, niet? ;)
Yeah, no way I’m missing Muley Monday, especially when I’m out chasing around rutting Muleys! This buck is very famous for sure and most of you know him as DD (named for his Double Droppers he had as a young buck). He’s been photographed many times by many people, mainly because of where he calls home. This is one of the last images I was able to take of him and nobody I know of has seen him hard horned at all this year. The last confirmed sighting I’ve heard of was September 12th and he was still in full velvet (which is pretty late for most bucks, let alone a buck of this caliber). He would usually rub by the end of August. I didn’t spend much time photographing him this summer, I kinda took him for granted and figured I could always find him. I sure hope I’m not regretting that decision and he shows up somewhere soon. If y’all have any info please share and thanks! Maybe the tongue out here in this pic was trying to tell me something? Haha
A different angle on this snakey showing off the slash. 🤘
All I wanted to do for my birthday was go sit in the blind. Glad I did because it payed off tonight! Thankful for the meat and experience this buck gave me 🏹🦌
Name one CAMPGROUND that you are thankful for this year! I’ll start! I am so thankful for Graves Island Provincial Park in Nova Scotia. It was a magical place and we felt like we were camping inside the pages of a storybook! It’s your turn! What campground are you thankful for?
40 degrees today had me ready for fall. Of 2019. Already. 😑🍂
What an unbelievable weekend.. On Friday, I missed what probably would have been my biggest buck to date. Rattled him in perfectly at noon and I flat out missed him. It is SO hard to harvest a mature buck, and opportunities are minimal. That could have easily been my only chance at a mature buck this season. And I blew it. This was my first time ever missing a buck. Let me tell you, it was THE worst feeling I've ever had as a hunter. But it is a feeling that any serious hunter has, or will experience at some point in their lives. I was sick to my stomach the rest of the day. Regardless, I still set that 4am alarm for the next morning and after a sleepless night, I headed back out. I rattled right at daybreak. After about 20 sec, I saw a big body walking towards me. He came in all pissed off and then proceeded to rub, scrape, and beat up a tree 40 yds in front of me in the thicket. His neck seemed to be bursting at the seams looking for a fight. He walked out into a shooting lane to my right and I let out a "meh" to stop him. He stopped with a small tree covering his vitals, so I didn't shoot. He kept walking and I let out another "meh", but he didn't stop. So I let out an extremely loud and commanding "MEH", and he stopped just long enough for me to shoot. He mule kicked and ran about 80 yds up the hill before he expired. This old brute is the oldest buck I've ever harvested. I'm incredibly grateful after such a crazy roller coaster of emotions.. ▪
