Here are a couple of pics where Bill is going hunting on State land. It is a section of forest that had a major fire that burned nearly 1800 acres about 3 years ago. Everyone in the area calls this 'the burn'. Last I heard, you are not allowed to 'bait' for deer this year because they had found a case of Chronic Wasting Disease in a private heard earlier this year. Bill hasn't ever baited anyway. Too bad the deer spread Bovine Tuberculosis and other diseases by where they eat, or I'd have a stash-o-sugar beets to watch deer all year at the cabin.
How about a woodpecker? I bought some meal worms on my way up north, but they weren't the favorite at the feeder. Woodpecker mix is loved by all. Here is a Red-bellied Woodpecker peeking over some food at the 'suet tree'. The yellow cup holds small suet balls. The White-breasted Nuthatches think they are really getting a treat when they get those little suet balls. I need to catch up with all of you blogger's out there! Let me head off to bloggy land to see what you all have been up to since I was gone! If you are going hunting, be safe. :)
