Return of the Deer…

… and pret­ty much no one else. We’ve had only a lit­tle bit of snow so far this win­ter. The deer don’t seem to mind. Giz­mo was ecsta­t­ic. The buck is back and look­ing bet­ter than ever. Lots of oth­er pic­tures of deer brows­ing and what not. Most­ly in the ear­ly evening. But there aren’t […]

What’s in the Woods — October

Not much to see this month we had a cou­ple of cam­eras run out of bat­tery unex­pect­ed­ly. So there’s just these cou­ple of images. No idea if the bears are still around. I’d like to put my bird feed­ers out soon. But may wait until the mid­dle of the month and check that cam­eras one […]

Game Cameras — Highlights September

The month start­ed with some real­ly love­ly sum­mer weath­er. The deer are appear­ing; some look­ing bet­ter than oth­ers. There’s still one speck­led fawn — but there isn’t a decent pic­ture of him/her. The coy­otes are still around. Noth­ing of them on the dri­ve­way this month. But they made the oth­er two cam­eras. Only one bear sight­ing. I’m […]

What the Cameras are Seeing in the Late Spring

We moved that cam­eras back in ear­ly May and are now see­ing dif­fer­ent things. Lots of preda­tors wan­der­ing around the for­est. One cam­era is locat­ed at the end of what we call the for­est road, the wide path that runs par­al­lel to the prop­er­ty line in the woods. The oth­er is on a small trail […]

Wildlife on the Farm — April 2017

The first real month of spring — as evi­denced by the vis­i­tor in our first pic­ture. The robins are back and hop­ping around the pas­ture look­ing for worms. This fel­low was look­ing to land on the fence post that the cam­era is mount­ed on. And they coy­otes are show­ing them­selves reg­u­lar­ly both at night and dur­ing the […]

More from the Game Cameras — March

Not so much on the cam­eras this month. The deer are walk­ing around in groups again. Three most­ly. I haven’t seen any sign of the buck or his antlers since Decem­ber. I was hop­ing to get the antlers for the dog to chew on. The preda­tors have been out at night. Coy­otes both on the […]
