Dead batteries killed a day. I left it dead but re-corned and was surprised to actually find corn still under the cam at about 10:30 this morning. First time ever. Maybe feeders are coming on line and they are getting some options.
You wonder what they are looking at.
Nothing but the two little bucks. A raccoon in the night. Batteries re-set and everything running again.

The doe and double fawns must be down the creek a little. Just the two bucks. Things will start moving shortly.
Came in about 6:30 and started eating corn. I always stand up the old whiskey bottle- the woods are full of dumps of old trash. During prohibition Club-13 was one of those places people went to drink at their lakehouses in private. Interesting to see how a deer won't even knock the old bottle down.
But the Raccons always do.
Corn out again at about 11:00.

Making runs to the lake almost every day so they are getting fed twice as often. They are sucking it up.
Looking in tree for Bigfoot. Somehow I missed some frames. Not much corn down and this was first on the card. Corn was put out at 1:34 the previous day. Not much left in this frame. Cameras must not be running all the time though they are set on the 3-shot burst a minute apart.
Armadillo crossing. Probably a young female. The males get a lot bigger. Need her for a photo.
Doe and twins come through. Fawns almost have lost spots.
One of the little bucks. Four-point.
Corn down today at 4:38.

Still just the same five deer. No pig lately. No squirrels. A big rabbit, possum, coons. One Chucacabra.
From the 19th.
After the corn that was put down at 11:30. They must have been across the creek.
And that's good.
Flash turned on.
Smart, experienced mom. Probably third set of twins. Or more.
The little bucks show up after corn is gone.
Corn reset today at 1:34, Monday, Sept 22.
Wallace reports David stepped on the rainbow this morning. We'll miss him. A Texan and patriot.
With Grandson Jake at the Service Rifle Championship, 2014.
One of my favorite people on any firing line. Great face to photograph and a very thoughtful and competent competitor and outdoorsman.
Here's David in the group that got LEG points at the Service Rifle Championship at Camp Swift. There's going to be a gap in the Distinguished Rifleman line where Guthery should have been.
