Catch of the Day!

Fishing has been pretty slow here in Tennessee over the last few weeks. Winter has finally settled in and the fish are in hibernation (ha ha). I took this picture of Buttermilk with the catch of the day. As you can see a real nice largemouth............for a fish aquarium. Oh well, things will get better in the year.

A Red Fox in the ten acre woods!

A few weeks ago a Red Fox dropped by our home in the Ten Acre Woods. No, I am not Christopher Robin and Winnie-the-Pooh or Piglet doesn't live here, but an old Red Fox does. When the Fox trotted by, I was lucky and had a camera in hand to snap these interesting photos. It was obvious that he or she was looking for food and this Red Fox must have been Italian as you will see from these photos.
The Red Fox trots by.......

.........and gets a whiff of something good?

All senses are operating fully in order to determine the direction of the smell.

Direction has been determined and investigation begins.

Mmmm...... Manicotti! Tastes like chicken.

Good to the last drop!

Hmmmm.... must be an Italian Red Fox?

The End!

Have a Very Merry Christmas!

I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season and may all your hopes and dreams come true. Below, read and look closely to see if you can spot a problem.
Yep, if you look closely at the above Christmas mouse, you may find an error that I purposely added. It is true that outdoors men and women will spot it immediately. Take a look and comment to help those that are outdoor ignorant. Also, here's a new years resolution that you can make: "Get away from the big screen and get on a big stream." I hope you enjoyed!

Not a fish was stirring not even a carp!

Last weekend I went to one of my favorite lakes to fish and kayak. This particular lake was stocked with Rainbow Trout the day before and my goal was to catch few. 

This poem tells you how well the fishing trip went.

Not a fish was stirring not even a carp!

T’was the night after the Rainbows had been stocked at the lake, I went fishing to see what I might take,

The flys were hung in the tackle box with care, in hopes that a big rainbow would soon be there.

When out on the lake there arose such a clatter, I sprang up in my kayak to see what was the matter.

Away to the point I paddled like a flash, threw down my paddle in order not to crash.

When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, a just fallen tree near a old whitetail deer.

I found not a fish was stirring, not even a carp, so I paddled my Kayak back to the park.

When I arrived home, fun was had by all, as my wife arrived from the mall.
That pretty much sums up my fishing trip. Apparently the trout, being new to the lake had pissed off everyone and nothing was biting.

Remember, get away from the big screen and get on a big stream!

House Boat Deer

Here's an interesting story about deer from Washington State. I'm glad I wasn't kayaking around these deer!

Some fishing stories are a little hard to believe, But this guy has pictures to prove his story... Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group on his 62-foot fishing vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his boat. "Once the deer reached the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us. We could tell right away that the young bucks were distressed. 
I opened up my back gate and we helped the typically skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the boat. In all my years fishing, I've never seen anything quite like it! “Once on-board, they collapsed with exhaustion, shivering. We headed for Taku Harbour. Once we reached the dock, the first buck that we had been pulled from the water hopped onto the dock, looked back as if to say 'thank you' and disappeared into the forest.” After a bit of prodding and assistance, two more followed, but the smallest deer needed a little more help. My daughter, Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet. We didn't know how long they had been in the icy waters or if there had been others who did not survive. My daughter later told me that the experience was something that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer felt the same way as well!"

A Message from a Coyote!

Recently, my wife who had been Christmas shopping called me as she was nearing our home. She said "Quick get the camera and come outside. I will pick you up because you may be able to photo a coyote that's in a field up the road."  So, I grabbed the Nikon D80 and headed out the door as she was pulling in our drive. I was hoping to get a few photo's of a common coyote playing in a field and maybe capture a photo of something unusual. Boy, I didn't realize how common this coyote was going to be and you won't believe what he did. As we headed up the road, I could see the coyote walking in the middle of the road.
As we neared, the coyote seemed not to notice us. I wondered why a coyote would be walking in the middle of the road, during the middle of the day and I was certain the coyote could hear the car. Strange don't you think? 
Then the unexpected happened. As we slowly neared him, he turned and stared a defiant stare. All of a sudden he begin to squat and poop on the road as if to send us a message: "Take this humans." 
Or could he be saying "You Perverts!"
Anyway, when the coyote finished his business he walked into the field and looked back at us as to say: "Now take that!"
Just think, I am one of only a few who have a photo of a common coyote pooping on a road. Woo-who a Nat Geo photo, not but you must admit it is an usual photo. 
This is truly a common coyote. Hope you enjoyed and remember: " Adventure Outdoors! Get away from the big stream and get on a big stream."
