I'll bet Bull Dog Man is happy now that he can fill the freezer without leaving the back porch! :-)
bahahahah! that's a good one Mike. and yes - much food to keep the freezer full every year! love you Sweet Sandy and so happy for you guys! xoxoxox
Mike,Bull Dog Man is over the moon. You should have seen what flew in today...3 turkeys. 2 male and 1 female....I have names for them....Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.
Sandy, welcome to my world! So far, no deer in the yard, and no bobcats either. We have had skunks, possums, armadillo, and the always on the prowl barn cats.That is a bobcat isn't it?
Glenda,At first I thought it was a domesticated cat. After further investigation it's a Bobcat!
Beautiful buck! I was going to ask what kind of a cat that was, too. Bobcat? Lynx? Do you have lynx in the area?
Mama Pea,I know...hes gorgeous! It's a Bobcat, and there's a cougar on the property. Evidence was visible with the last snow, very large paw prints. No signs of lynx in this area.
Nice array of 'visitors' you have, there. Any of 'em in the freezer yet? ;^)
Rev Paul,We like these type of visitors as well. No, not yet....when the season comes then we will get one right on our property. I've purchase another freezer in preparation for hunting season.
Is all the moving done now? I am still so happy for you guys...what a beautiful and majestic buck. I am sure there is an arrow in the future with his name on it.
JUGM, The moving is done, we just need to go back to the rental home to clean and give our notice to the landlord. This buck is just the perfect gift......hurry up hunting season....more like a bullet 😊
Wow! You really have a variety of wildlife on your new property. What fun! Hope the move is going (went) well and that you are settling in! xoxo
Susan,All kinds of wildlife, you must be aware of your surroundings with having bear, and the Wildcats. The move is done, now it's time to get settled in.Hugs,Sandy
I like those visitors. Just the right kind , they don't bother you and they take good care of themselves.
Harry,We do as well. They pretty much leave you alone. We're always aware of our surrounding.
They leave you alone but not your garden! Ask me how I know! ;)
Leigh,No they won't leave your garden alone. We will have to place a fence around our garden when we put one in. I'm pretty sure I know how you know :-)
What trail cam do you have? I'm looking for one for our property (or a couple, pointed in different directions) to see what creeps around when we aren't there. Would like something that does color and nighttime of course. Yours looks great.I was driving to the farm a couple of weeks ago and something ran across the road in a wooded area, it was so fast, but I'm pretty sure it was a cat of some sort, bobcat, or something similar. We have coyote in the area, deer, skunk, etc. Great pics, thanks for sharing, and I can read the happiness in your posts. So excited for you!!
1st Man,I finally found the user manuals on those critter cam's they were packed in one of the last boxes I unloaded. The camera's are from Wildgame Innovations, Model #t5i3w. They're called Infrared Digital Scouting Camera's and were picked up at Walmart about 1 year ago for approximately $100 a piece. We initially used them at my mom's house because she kept saying people were trespassing and harassing her.
Thank you for following up! I am going to check them out. Would love a couple of them. Keep up the moving in and enjoy your new life in the country!!!
