Archer - Where are you? Like Swede, I'm having trouble placing the vegitation... and the adobe.

 

The Steelhead say coastal Northwest, but the vegetation the old adobe building say AZ, NM, or SoCal. Except for that Sycamore tree.... that's a European variety I thought.

 

Hummm, Camel river... time to Google!

 

Great shots RA, thanks.

Looking west ridge containing large oak trees. This field floods at times being boardered by Cedar creek

North of the field bottom ground growing up because we sold the cows and dont pasture it anymore

Cedar creek very low water because of drought

This is an example of a deer trail just to the left of center and moving towards the top. I know its hard to see.

The difference between a rub and a scrape. This is a rub where they rub their antlers on a tree. Some think the bigger the tree the bigger the buck.

This is a scrape. They paw the ground(note the hoof marks) to clear away the ground cover and then urinate on the spot. Does will stay near these spots if their in the mood. Hunters will recognise the freshness of the scrapes and wait near these spots. Bucks will travel a scrape line constantly day and night and will be along sooner or later.

Hey Swede ... that's a very nice piece of land you got here buddy ;) and thanks for that last picture ... i found something similar on my last hike and was wondering what it could have been and i know there are deer in the area.

 

here's what the spots i found look like:

Dear Mooseman>

 

The two pictures you posted of the deer scrapes tell a story. The first picture clearly shows the width of the hoof of the buck that made them. So does the second. Theres an obvious difference in the width of the two. The first buck is much larger than the second. The second isnt much more then a yearling and I would guess the first is a two year old and probably a six pointer give or take.

Thanks, my friends!  You were all there with me in spirit!  I thought about every single one of you while I was sitting on top of the mountain and wishing you could be there with me.
