Entering the woods
The Fall look has officially arrived in the Oklahoma woods
Crossed a dirt trail, it's always full of deer tracks. We had a light rain the night before so it was easy to see the fresh tracks made
"there's another one Dad!" We started following this bucks tracks and then jumped him about 20 yards from this spot. A nice 8 pointer!
back into the woods
came to a small clearing
inside the woods to search for a suitable camp spot
and found one
Time for the camp chores. Sven saw made quick work or a dead oak
hatchet's turn was next to break it down for wood stove pieces
can't leave out the knife
ready for fire. Just to make sure this worked the first time I used some fatwood as well. Can't spend too much time lighting the fire with kids or you lose em!
Hot chocolate and donuts. A good snack according to Bel, and me
view in the front as we enjoyed the fruits of our labor
quick shot of the tools as we packed up
covered out fire pit and headed back out to look for more deer
didn't take long to see more sign
came across this burl that was a little bigger than a basketball. It was about 8 feet off the ground
then we saw this guy crossing the dirt trail on the way back in. He was moving pretty slow after the cooler weather we had. Bel got a kick out of seeing it of course.
after that it was back in the trees to head on back
It was a great way to spend an afternoon. We're both already looking forward to next time...
thanks for looking
