In the Woods

We moved the game cam­eras to new loca­tions two week­ends ago. This one we thought was a sleep­ing area. But a cou­ple of weeks of obser­va­tion reveals noth­ing. The oth­er cam­era was placed at the south end of the sep­tic field. An open area sur­round­ed by for­est and home to at least one bun­ny colony. […]

Game Cameras Early Fall 2016

Only one bear sight­ing. I’m […]

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 […]
