Default Hard Winter

It's been a hard winter here and as of 3/11 we still have 4 feet of snow in the woods. The deer have been having a rough go of it but this doe and her little ones look pretty healthy.

What winter? We didn't get one this year. Made hunting VERY tough!

It was 90 on Friday when I got back home from Wyoming.

I got mulies all over my front yard. They are muchin away on my neighbors vine...thing. My kids are freaking out! "DEER! DEER!" "Hey there's the does! Gotta be a buck close!" Says my 9 year old.

You might read this and think its a good thing. Nope... We live in a very populated area. They have no where else to go now thanks mainly to over-development. A little over a year ago we had a small group of antelope that traveled near our place. Now I don't know where they are. I do know there is a HUGE 24 hour fitness type place that kicked them out though. God know where they've ended up. It won't be long before Colorado Springs and the Denver city limits are within spitting distance at this rate.

On the western slope of Colorado I've heard there are semi-weekly food drops choppered in for the deer because the snow has been so bad.
