I was on the way home from my grand daughters birthday party when I saw these five deer moving from the woods in search of something to eat. The funny thing is, they aren’t but a couple hundred yards from the country subdivision I live in, and are feeding directly toward my house. The last deer in this group seems to be larger than the others, and I would bet it’s a buck. I have lived for 16 years in this area, and seen some deer sign, but these are the first deer I have actually laid my eyes on! I’m glad there are some roaming around, and I hope to see more in the future.
Can’t wait for those fields to be green instead of white. Temps. have been in the high 40’s the last couple days and most of the snow is gone. I’m not missing it one bit! I need some warm sunny weather to get those lovesick Tom’s looking for a mate. Sometimes the first turkey hunt can be somewhat disappointing, as the birds may be “late” due to cold weather conditions. I only have about three more weeks before my hunt starts. Well at least a couple of the grandkids have the later hunt, which might end up being the best hunt!
