Living in Northern Canada and owning over 30 acres of untouched forest we have a ton of wildlife, So I bought a trail cam, and look who it seen ! Also I almost walked into a porcupine (10 ft away) when I was putting up the cam, lol
wow. it is easy to forget how big they are up there, they are practically dog size down here. He is beautiful!!
wife to amazing man for 10 yrs, mom, grandma, grower of all things edible. raiser of critters God gave me to keep me sane, have someone to talk to during the day, love, nurture, and eat starting over! Have 11 hens, 1 Roo, 1 475 lb pig
Yes we have white tail and Mule deer here, and they are big, a ton of meat on them. Yes we drop a buck a year for the freezer, but we do not allow others to hunt on our land. We also have around 20 acres of land underwater so we also have a huge lake/marsh area in our timber. Its moose heaven in there.Beautiful and quite, I cant see any neighbors and all that we see is what we own! Its living our dream. 70 acres of our land is seeding to hay fields (from 2 cuts per season we are getting around 115 lrg round bales so x that by two a year.
lol Kimmie , totally i should photoshop a little red nose on him, lol Ya we havnt hunted for him as I like the taste of younger bucks or does . Tho if he did give us the chance I dont think my husband would pass him up, haha He would get mounted as he is a beauty
I agree AnnB, I know about the placement of the cam, I kinda was hoping to catch a Bull moose that has been knocking over trees, thats why i had it pointed so high, Last winter's buck we got had a little over 1" of fat on him, Cubby well fed deer around here, and the meat was awesome, 2 years ago I found a shed from either this deer or a relative to it, its now hanging in the chandelier over my dinner table.I collect them
Very cool! Where did you get your trail cam? We live in Alberta too, just bought a quarter section with lots of trees and tons of wildlife. I'd love to set up a trail cam too. We get deer pawing right in our yard. We are off the beaten trail too, closest neighbour is 2 miles away. It's wonderful isn't it!
Bought cam on sale at Cabelas (love that store) and its wasnt one of the fancy special ones either, more on the good price side with good reviews, As yes its wonderful living in Alberta, I love it here
claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
