Wisconsin WEIRD!

I ain't just talking about me either.

I was able to do a short walk-about today. Temp had moderated to a balmy 15 degrees above zero. Snow depth was 10-12 inches average depth. The intention of my excursion was to check on headbone. Well headbone is done the deer to the left in this picture is a buck with bald sores on his head. The deer on the right is a doe. I was able to determine this by a lack of knob sores. Plus to make it really weird she stood for the buck to mount her. Now it is January 20 and I can't ever remember seeing a doe stand for a buck this time of year. At least in my area. This may explain the spotted fawns I saw last August and September. All I know for sure is the natural order is evolving. I'm planning on an extended shed hunt this Sunday, it's supposed to be in the 30's.

Other observations from my hike were flocks of Lapland Longspurs (arctic songbirds) still hanging around. Ravens still proclaiming their existence. Red squirrel tails bushier than I've ever seen. Finally the boots I got in Georgia are great for hiking, not so much for standing.

Some of ours have dropped and some are still holding on. I saw a 10 point a couple of days ago that was still sporting head gear!!

I hate to see breeding going on so late. Any baby produced will have a hard time making it!

Good luck with your shed hunt!!

I knew you got you a good pair of walking boots, and they wouldn't hold up to standing around in the subzero temps up there. however they might do the job for you when you are rippinlipz  ##$%#1115 ##$%#1115
