    AL where are you at? That is a wooly looking deer. Must get pretty cold in your neck of the woods.

    I put up two chickadee houses about 4 years ago. The wren filled one with sticks but never nested otherwise they have been unused. Since the birds don't want to use them I won't take issue to this guy moving in once he opens up the hole enough to fit.

    Looks like he has his work cut out for him. Quite the acrobat.

    I love wrens but they'll fill every box within a 1/4 mile and then go build a nest in a bush.I guess it's just to keep other birds away.

    Saw a porky today up in a pine plantation on state land. I thought about how he'll probably damage some of those trees but I let him go. First porky I've seen up here (near my hunting cabin) ever.

    A friend stopped while I was stacking this afternoon. There was a chipmunk on the ground too.

    Found these guys while trimming my yard. Hit one with the trimmer, luckily appeared to only have cut his toe a bit. Hoping mom comes and hauls them somewhere safer overnight!

    Well mom apparently was back and took care of them in the night although didn't move them from where I had relocated them to. I lightly covered them with grass again to keep them safer.

    Also in my yard this morning. This gal was trying to (or maybe succeeded) in laying eggs in the spot where I recently burned out a stump. Had to keep an eye on her so she steered clear of the bunnies (about 25' away). On her way back to the lake she crossed my deck, which is far from the easiest route lol.

    Nice. I was thinking of a game camera here to capture the deer, wild turkeys etc around the place.

    I started to say, yum, turtle soup! But I never tried it. My hunting buddy used to catch snappers and keep them in a pen feeding them what he considered a cleaner diet for about a month, then he made turtle soup, Joe.

    I had a friend whose father traps snappers on the Mississippi and keeps the one within the allowed size. If I had more time I would probably have harvested these after getting a turtle license.

    They are thick near this lake every June. Maybe someday I'll have the time.

    This fledgling grouse was dumber than a stump and nearly ran under my car as I tried to drive around him. This road gets pounded by hunters in the fall so if he doesn't wisen up soon he won't see many more sunrises.

    Here's a chipmunk at the cabin that will eat out of your hand and let you pet him. He's at least 4 or 5 years old now and has lost part of his tail to something so I fear he's not going to be around all that much longer.

    The kids found a baby mouse next to the deck. Why he was out and about alone, I'm not sure but he hopped his way to safety under the building after I took this picture.

    John haan't hunted turtles in years, I'll have to check and see if you need a license for them in MD now, Joe.
