I'll do my best to walk with you through some of my time spent in the forests of Germany. The first series of pics is from a walk through my hunting area a few weeks ago. Somehow I had the feeling it would be one of my last, so I snapped some random pics as I was going. 1 April I officially gave up my lease on this area. And on Friday, with heavy heart, I removed my cameras and stand and probably set foot there for the last time. If time permits I may make one last hike through there, but it won't be the same knowing that it's no longer meine jagd revier. It will be missed.

View from stand on power line


Looking down the water line






The field






Lower road


Looking up the water line


The neighbors


Pig hollow


Pig wallow




Pig bed


Power line




Upper road


Huckleberries




It was a very windy day, and this tree was intact when I parked
Luckily it got hung up!





Some random photos from my German hunting album.

Watched this sunrise from the field stand many mornings




Pigs digging up acorns




Looking down on the village we live in


Deer in field on my way to work


Tree where my power line stand used to be


No more need for the Deutsche hunting placard

















And of course it wouldn't be German venison, without the bratwurst



I hope you enjoyed the walk.

Waidmannsheil!

Thanks Rooster.

I don't know of a single person from PA whose ever been here, doesn't say how much it looks the same. Probably why so many Germans took root in PA.

Steely, I'm coming home, as in the USA. But we're moving to VA.

The placard lets them know I'm hunting, as well as being allowed to drive the roads in the forest.

No artifacts, but I find many depressions in the ground made when the Air Corps was visiting

That goat is a Gamswild, better know as a Chamois. Alps mountain goat. That pic is from a hike I took while we were down in the Alps this past summer.

The trailcam pic is of a badger (dachs in German).
And yes, the Germans use dachshunds to chase them out of their dens.
