Pix of a view from one of my all-time
favorite hunting tree stands. Harvested many a deer from this stand with
rifle and muzzle loader. Stand was 20 feet above ground level giving me a
300 yard plus shot across the field and 125 yards to the oak tree island near
the middle of the field. Hunted this field/pasture for 17 years
before the land owner Mr. Pines Davis passed away! Mr.
Davis was in his
low 90's and could accurately remember dates and events like it was yesterday.
Aerial photograph of the Davis Land taken before the
airport runway expansion. Pilot was
"Wild Bill" Escott. The oak
"island" is clearly visible in the center of the picture. See first pix
for a ground view.
Above pix doing a quick check of the point of aim of an
ole left hand Remington BDL in .270 Win. caliber. You can see the large
oak tree in the right hand corner of this pix. The ole blue GMC has hauled
many a deer from this field and finally let my brother have it for parts for a
racing transmission component. The truck body and bed looked like it had
been attacked by a swarm of giant mutant moths sporting diamond and carbide teeth that
had a taste for sheet metal. The ole truck in a prior life had apparently
hauled some corrosive farm elements such as nitrogen fertilizer, etc.
Pictures of barn taken in 2001 and barn was later removed by
the new land owner of the ole Davis Land. Logged many miles walking across
this pasture turkey and deer hunting.
