Went out there this weekend with Pitchfork Predator and had a great time as usual. Met Ben & Bob (sounds like ice cream) cool dudes with great stories scratch

Saw a lot of quail busting around us, weird thing was we kept seeing singles running down the road in front of us, would not fly off just kept trucking then ducking in the cover.


Jack Rabbits all over the road, dang things would run in front of the Polaris for for up to 300 or 400 hundred yards, it was pretty cool to watch.

Little late but sunrise


This was wild, thought we saw a huge rub on a cedar then noticed a dead coyote behind it, wonder what the heck happened?




And we did a lot of hiking, heck of a nice weekend. Pitch on the ledge.

I would bet that Mr. Bob was drawing you away, and distracting you from his nesting hen. I have seen them (hens) act like they are wounded or have a broken wing and try to draw you away from nest.

I bet your right, happened at least 4 or 5 times while driving around.

Myself and two buds hunted the Pitch around 2011 or so.
From the pics it looks like tha same pastures possibly.
The year we hunted, a fire had consumed half the lease
during the summer prior to deer season.
My group didn't kill a buck that year but we saw a bruiser
one day and viewed him with nocs and through a scope. Had
he not been on another mans feeder he'd be on a wall right now.
We only left as the drive was too much for us, six hours one way
and we like to be in the woods frequently in deer season.
We knew the potential for very good deer was there but the drought
was bad during our tenure on the place. The vistas were spectacular
and I have many fine pics from roaming that place. There were tons
of pigs and in fact I have a pic of the largest hog I've ever seen
captured on game cam, we named him Beetle cuz he looke like a VW Bug.
We never saw him except for the one pic on the game cam.
The Pitch was when I got my first electronic game caller. We had more
fun calling coyotes than any hunting I've ever done except for possibly
pushing hogs in deep ravines of the Frio river with one walker and
posted hunters up ahead waiting on them to run by. And it was at camp
on the Pitch I had an experience I'll never forget. A tug of war over
a doe, me on one end, a bobcat on the other. He was determined but
so was I. Great ranch, and the other hunters we shared the lease with
were great folks as well. I wish I still had my spot even it was a long drive.

I remember you guys! That buck you saw was at my Bell feeder. I still owe you a "thank you" for not shooting him. I see from the other thread you guys are busting a group of poachers. I wish you great luck in successfully sending those bastards to jail. I'm going to try to have a group hog/coyote hunt this summer. I'll pm you and hopefully you can make it back up and help us kill some hogs and coyotes. cheers

It is a beautiful place, Pink. I'm very fortunate to be able to go out there with my friends. Just a great time everytime we're out there. Heck, even getting stuck in the mud 6 miles from camp is OK. Just climb a hill and you can USUALLY get phone service. Just don't forget the cooler with extra snacks, water and adult beverages. cheers

On a very dry year I have seen Jack Rabbits eat the bark off of the bottom of Mesquite trees, and they love the mesquite beans. I have never seen them eat the bark off of Cedar trees. But I would bet they will and that is what you see. And the deer love the cactus bud and the fuzzy needle don't bother them. They also make great jam and jelly.

A coyote was caught on a trap with a drag and got tangled up in the tree. All the trees my coon traps are on, look just like this.

That makes perfect sense, coons I have trapped in a Dukes trap have done the same thing and that thought crossed my mind.
Problem was, I looked at the legs and ankle and did not see any trauma to them, might have missed it?

Also what made me think of the possibility of an Alien encounter was how high up the bark was stripped, even tiny limbs eek2
