Not sure where to post this, but found a desert tortoise while out scouting for my kids upcoming hunt in 22. I’ve never seen one still in the shell thought I’d share.

Cool shot with 4 peaks in the back!

Yep. I was hoping the moon would show up in the shot too but no luck. No deer either. I haven’t hunted the burned area in 22 yet but figured I’d find them in there. Fingers crossed I still have a few weeks!

Cool, always a treat.

I called a tortoise and a fox in same time once predator hunting near Tonopah. No, really.

Way cool!  I used to hunt at a waterhole in 22 that was surrounded by tall reeds and it had at least a dozen turtles swimming in it.  I think they were box turtles though.  Hope you find the deer!

About 6 years ago the wife and I were in 37b javelina hunting and came across one sunning itself way up on the side of a rather steep hill. Seemed a little early, it was during the ham hunt. There was a burrow behind him under a yucca with another one inside.

The govt was nice enough to build special fences in CA to keep them off the roads......we see a few here and there out bird hunting.
