We have been walking on the deer trails in the afternoon, the trails in the woods are not icy like the road is. Our property is posted so we feel safe wandering out on our own property during the day. Deer Hunting ends this weekend. The main hunting area that my family uses is way north of our property. Three deer have been harvested up there.
It is very quiet in the woods. No birds or squirrels except near our home. It is good exercise for a Border Collie’s nose…he often has to be called back to the main trail. His hearing is getting worse…and sometimes he thinks he is the leader and picks a more brushy trail.
There are a few widowmakers hanging near the trails. (The branch stuck up in a tree.)
These are spots where deer have bedded down for the night. There were three spots in this area. Probably a doe and two fawns or maybe the triplet fawns.
And deer sign is all along the trail. ( Just incase you city folk don’t know what deer poop looks like.)
I take my small fit in your pocket camera. I must have it on a setting to take square photos!
It snowed again after our walk yesterday. But next week it may warm up! It isn’t so bad, there are no skeeters, ticks, flies or snakes.
