Something is eating the apples off the ground in the old orchard in the upper pasture. The ground is so hard and dry that they aren't leaving tracks. I scouted around but couldn't find any definite sign point to any one critter. I hung a trail camera on one of the trees Sunday afternoon. I want to see what it is. If it is deer, well it is still two months until deer season. If it is elk, dang I will be fixing fence again. But if it is a bear.... well bear season openned on Aug 1. And last year this time I saw a real big bear track in that area. Even if it is a deer. The world record Columbia Blacktail came out of this drainage and one of the youngest son's buddies shot a buck on the hill right behind this field about 4 years ago that just missed B/C by an inch or so. There are possibilities.
I pulled the camera down yesterday. It had 36 pictures. All does and fawns. I will put it back up tomorrow. I think this time I will aim it the other way. Maybe that big buck is walking around the back side of that tree?
