Needed a haircut and had some business at the courthouse so I drove into town this morning. The best part about going to town is that I get to see a lot of my "neighbors" on the way in and on the way back.
These two gents were the first sighting, just a bit off my place. They crossed the road ahead of me and then just kind of moseyed away as if they knew damn well that hunting season was over.
Next was a group of a dozen or so mulies clustered about a hundred yards off the road, some standing and some lying down. Then a huge golden eagle sitting on a fence post and gliding off when the truck got too close. Finally, a big pod of antelope, maybe twenty.
On the way home I saw lots of antelope, some close to the road and some quite a ways off. Maybe fifty or sixty in about three groups. Then, quite close to the road, I saw a gaggle of seven young bucks, all with small antler sets— spikes, two-by-twos, and a couple of small 3x3s. As I drove by them I saw that there was another group, maybe fifty yards further out, but I couldn't see whether they were does or more young bucks.
So I now have newly lowered ears, fresh paperwork from the CH, and some nice sightings going and coming. Plus a store-boughten lunch. Can't forget that. All in all, not a bad day.
