    Spent a few days in some Safari themed tents on a wildlife conservation center. My son now thinks camping is staying in a small building roughly the size of a small hotel room with two beds, heating/AC, and restroom with shower. Anyways the first morning we met my parents at the breakfast "tent" and my mother was complaining about some bug in their tent that was making it hard to sleep because it kept flying around. About 10 min later my father joined us with this.

    It was by far the largest beetle I have ever seen in my life outside of the zoo or on the internet! I will post some more pictures of the animals when my wife finishes sorting them all out

    Nick's thoughts were the same as mine as soon as you told the story, Especially the 2 hour gap in sightings.

    The mother is almost assuredly dead, protected park or not, as the deer's number on predator isn't the mighty hunter, bur, rather, dirty smelly hippies in hybrids who are too bust pre ordering their double mocha zippidiydo via a text. Some coyote probably already had that little nugget for a meal.

    No. I've had that photo for a number of years, now. Originally I got it off somebody's internet hunting forum. That buck is a muley; so it's got 'a be from somewhere out West.

    Because everybody liked the first photo so much here's another one I have in my hunting files of two hounds bringing a coyote to bay.

    Two hours isn't an extraordinary time period for a doe to be away from her fawn. Every now and then during the summer one of our dogs has found a balled-up fawn waiting for its mother. We just leave them alone.

    On those occasions when I've gone back the next day the fawn was gone, and the ground wasn't disturbed anywhere around where it was lying. What you don't want to do is leave too much of your body scent in the immediate area, and remember to never touch the fawn.

    Well good news, everyone. I rode out to the trail early this morning and started looking for the fawn to be sure it was reunited with it's Mom.
    I rode slowly and looked everywhere around me carefully, hoping not to find it. After about 1.5 hours of riding, I decided to go back through where I last saw the little one for one last look.
    Rounding a corner I came upon the Mom deer and she didn't seem very afraid of me but did run a few feet to put some space between us. In doing so, she left the fawn standing there alone.
    I snapped a few quick pictures, and then turned around and let them be.
    It was a very cool experience and my mind is at ease knowing the fawn is with it's Mom.

    First I spotted roe deer this evening.:)

    [​IMG]

    It was scared off by this lil hare and jumped away.

    The little one ran to his mommy to tell her about his adventure.:D

    [​IMG]

    When momma came along from home the deer was gone.:(

    [​IMG]

    But soon it showed up again and they became friends.:dance:

    [​IMG]

    Then the roe deer left the scene and three red deer (doe with fawn and another female) moved on the food plot.:eek:

    [​IMG]

    Bambi followed his mom step by step and played with the hares close up to 2 meters in front of the hunting blind.:bounce:

    Here is an Ostrich making his way to our tour bus to grab food off the side. My 5yr old son thought it was hilarious when the tour guide said its brain was the same size as its eye ball :) . He did not think it was very funny though when it made it to the bus and started pecking all over the place looking for food!

    This little bird is sitting in the stands with us. I don't think it can fly away, like maybe it fell out of the nest that is just above us and is either hurt or can't quite fly yet. I was able to get real close for the picture.

    American Robins, Day 7. 2 outta 3 are hungry. (I guess the 4th egg didn't hatch so mama got rid of it. That would explain why I occasionally find a sole egg in the grass with one small beak hole. I always assumed that a predatory bird dropped it and didn't go back to eat it)

    People usually turn their nose up at fungi but you have to remember they are an indication of what is going on beneath the earth. They are feeding on rotting matter (usually roots) and can be a clear warning that the the towering tree above may not be as healthy as it looks.
