Another fall season has come and gone in Northwest Ontario. As usual, it's went by way to fast but we managed to have some fun. After really harsh winters in 2013 and 2014 our deer population was hit pretty hard. I was not all that optimistic that there would that many deer around this fall but I was pleasantly surprised by what showed up on my trail cameras. There certainly weren't as many big bucks as there were six or eight years ago but I had some really good prospects show up so I'm looking forward to the 2016 season!
My friend Mitch Bonnema came up to hunt for a few days in late October and scored on a pretty nice eight pointer. Mitch, his brother Scott and friend Dave Hartig have been coming to hunt in the Kenora area for many years and we always have a great time!
This was a pretty picture from the ride back to the boat ramp one morning after dropping the guys off to hunt for the day.
The highlight of the season was getting to tag along with my wife August and her cousin Tara when they shot their first moose back in November. It's no record book bull but it was still awesome and it's a great eater! Congrats girls!
This buck is no record booker either but it made my day on a Sunday in late November. We love eating venison so this one did a good job filling up the freezer!
Over the course of the season I captured photos of several nice bucks, you can check them all out in the 2015 deer trail cam gallery...Happy Holidays everybody!
