Jan 30,08 Snow shoeing

While showshoeing with the dogs one afternoon we ventured down to the summer deer feeder which still had some grain in. Many animals were still feeding here, tracks from a few red squirrels, a mink, the fisher we had seen in the fall, hungarian partridges and ruffy grouses numbers unknown as there is a good flock of each around, many coyote tracks as we all know how many coyotes are around and ofcourse the whitetail trail. Deer have yarded up about 5 miles away and sometimes on a nice day we see the odd deer travelling accross the field to see if any fresh grain has fallen to the ground,.
