Cool on the antler info Pete.
The buck (8pt) we watched shake his off was on Jan 11 at lunchtime.
Quite a cool snap that week it was.

One thing that continues to amaze me about my interest in deer is "shed hunting". I have spent many hours at it and found very few. The last ones I found were in the East Plot in 2006. I had several bucks around the plots last fall and I kept my trail cams out to try and assist my shed hunting. I knew the deer where not traveling far from the plots, but as hard as I looked along the trails in the snow and their bedding areas, I didn't find one shed in the woods. The only shed I did find was in the West Plot and about 50 feet from where the apples were. It was from the 10pt. Whats really interesting, is that the 10pt has alot of similarities to the 12pt I took last year. He could be alot like the 12pt by this fall. There is a good chance he made it through the winter, so I can hardly wait.>Pete

Deer zones in Nova Scotia need to be reduced in size and micro managed by DNR. Zone 107 is too big!! It needs to be cut in half with the Shubie River as a boundry. Areas on the Hant Co side should not be either sex but bucks only with a doe draw, in my opinion. >Pete

The camp is 10 years old this year. Fortunately it is constructed of white cedar which is naturally rot and bug resistant. While waiting for the plots to dry out this spring I put a nice fresh coat of stain on the camp. I noticed last fall that it was starting to look really weathered. By this spring it was really evident that it needed to be stained. It really turned out nice. See the before and after pics.>Pete

It's time to talk about the 2010 plots. I have done alot of work so far this year and I have alot of info to post. However, one very significant event has to be mentioned first. I GOT A TRACTOR!!!! I gotta tell ya, it's AWESOME!! It took me ten years to pay for the camp, and since I have to keep working to earn a living, I figured I should be paying for something. Also , I'm not getting any younger and 5 acres of plots is ALOT OF WORK. Plus my 96 polaris 500 needs a rest. The tractor wasn't much more than a big bike, but when you add a few attachments on it does starts to add up.

The tractor is a Kabota 30hp diesel, 2X4-4X4, hydralic front loader, locking rear differential, front and rear power take offs, and hydralic 3pt rear hitch. It's not a big tractor, but it has all the power I need. In addition to the loader, I got a disc, broadcast spreader, and they threw in the rear ballast box. I have never driven or operated a tractor in my life. It's been a real learning experience. I learn something new about operating the tractor or the use of the attachments every time I use it. See pics.>Pete

KPR, No such thing as "running water" or a hose at the camp. It only gets that treatment at home. But, there is still the old "well and Bucket" and cleaning treatment. Nice and clean.>Pete

Hey Markus, no problems with the hostas. Probably to close to the camp. Not even the rabbits, the coyotes got them all.

Camel, I've planted clover and forage rape(brassica). I still have part of the West plot to do. I have some Rack Stacker products to try(Thanks Bob AKA Foodplotter).

Time to lime, plus a chance to use another one of the attachments.>Pete

Pete just out of curiosity how long would have all this taken with the buggy vs the tractor and would you have done as much this year?

Well + bucket??
I vote we get Pete a hand pump for his well and a hose at least.





hope their not worried about too many pics already... :rolleyes: .....sites just gettin started ;)


Nope "their" not,just me this week on dialup...sooo unlike me to complain any ;)
