My Deer Hunt

farmland deerFriends, well the men of the family are out sitting on tree stands in single digit cold (F) with fingers freezing and trying to stay quiet in the frosty woods.  Deer hunting opened this morning but i got this white tail deer doe several days ago before the shooting started.  She was so pretty, hope she makes it, til Tomorrow MJ


White tail

young male deerFriends, this young male whitetail deer is out in the open trying to escape the last of the deer flies, see the antlers growing on top of his head.  he is probably a second summer deer as his coat is not spotted and his antler growth is vey small for late August.   The white blur is his tail swishing around chasing the flies.  til Tomorrow MJ

Red Pine Sunset

red pines sundownFriends, the end of a perfect winter day, this red pine grove is halfway home from Crex Meadows and I often see it at sunset.  Spending the day at Crex is a passion even when the summer birds have gone south.  The only birds remaining are natives and those that migrate from the far northern regions.  Currently there are Rough-legged hawks, bald eagles, a harrier, osprey and an occasional red-tailed hawk,  I am chasing otters, timber wolves, white tail deer and other illusive ghosts thru the 30,000 acres of marsh and woodlands that is Crex.  Finding tracks but nothing else so now i have to resort to some sunset images to be able to show you the wonders of Crex. til Tomorrow MJ
