Hey, we're in the midst of deer hunting season here in eastern Ontario, so I made a few video clips of the first 2 days of the hunt.
So far we've bagged four; I came home a day early for some work commitments. The weather has been much warmer than normal,
which often means the deer don't move as much.
We have a group of about ten guys hunting, usually 6 or 7 on watches and 3 or 4 dogging the bush to push the deer; really
the only way to hunt in this terrain...too many hiding spots for them. We hunt an area of about a thousand hectares, so sometimes
we get lucky and drop one where one of the quad-bikes can get to, but that's not what happened this year. I shot one way back
in there and we had some serious dragging to do. Then another guy shot one and it ended up in the water at the bottom of a ravine.
I went to chill out and go fishing one afternoon and got only one pike, but the serenity was great so I didn't mind the poor fishing.
On day 3, two of us saw bears, probably the same bear; it ran away from the other guy but was a little standoffish with me. I was on
a dogging run in the northwest end of the bush where he probably wouldn't see a person any other time of the year; the bear was not
aggressive, just not real interested in getting out of my way. Then that night it was a racoon circus outside the camp at midnight...
a mother and three little ones chasing around the yard and waking me up. Besides that I had also fishers on two different occasions
come up near me on my watch.
