Default Did Curiosity Kill the (Bob)Cat? TBH Video Journal #30

I'm still a few weeks behind on editing, but I finished up the last weekend of the MLD season and uploaded it for episode #30 of the Video Journal.

Jeanette and I had a close encounter with a juvenile bobcat, Mark arrowed a buck from a Krivoman Blind, we took Courtney's senior pictures, Jeanette, Colette and Mary practiced their skinning rack techniques and, of course, we ate well with grilled duck, wild pork and a salad!

Outstanding. Love how Mark really went that extra mile to really brush that blind in.. Kidding of course. Them girls/ ladies did well on the skinning.. If more people spent family time like that, there would be a lot less mess in this world..

I think, for the most part, Mark left the blinds pretty much as they were delivered with the intent to reposition them in the brush during the offseason. After a couple of weeks, I think the critters were already starting to get used to them, though.

As I get more and more gray in my whiskers, I'm increasingly grateful for the time I've spent with family at CDLC and elsewhere, and that I've taken the time to capture and document most of it with photos and video.

Michael,

That cat almost came to visit you inside the blind. That was awesome.

Thanks for sharing.

Unfortunately, I apparently had a glitch in the Osmo at that moment and it didn't capture the footage of the cat peering into the lens.

My wife and I were originally going to hunt separately, but when the girls decided not to wake up we decided to go together. In the last minute chaos, I actually left my "good" camera (Sony A7Sii) at camp. Instead we used my wife's Panasonic HC-VX870, which takes great footage in good lighting conditions. That's why the early footage of the cat at the feeder is so "noisy." We watched the cat stalk near the feeder for several minutes before we had enough light to record with this camera. I'm thankful we had the quality backup.

I probably should have not covered our audio with music, but there was some (mild) concern that the cat might pounce into the blind to try to catch the "bird" (camera) roosting on my tripod! It would have made for great footage if it would have attacked either the Osmo...or us!

That is a another great video. I really enjoy all aspects of camp not just the hunting part. Don't get me wrong I really want top see big bucks down and great bow shots but as most know the deer camp is more than hunting.

I am envious of you for capturing all those family moments on video and pictures sure wish I would have done the same.

Looking forward to the next one.........

LOL! In fairness, Mary did lend a hand (and knife) for the quartering part of the job. That said, Mary is probably the most experienced of the "Three Musketeers" when it comes to handling a skinning knife.

Great video, as always! I think the cats eyes are a little off though? Nothing like I've seen on all the "mount threads"! Cool to have a spot for the girls senior pics too!

Thanks! We're blessed to have a place like CLDC (and a great group of friends) to spend time as a family.
