Had a 3 day special deer season here last weekend, a prelude to the regular season that starts in a few weeks.

I had forgotten all about this special season; I usually move my goats, sheep, mule and donkey to different pasture during hunting season as I don't trust all the nitwits around here with guns. (Yes, yes, I own guns and strongly support the 2d amendment. But there are still lots of folks wandering the hills with guns that are clueless.)

Anyway, I had made an early-morning trip to town on Saturday, and returned just about daybreak. Looked up as I came in the drive and saw an enormous herd of deer (maybe 30 animals, which is big hereabouts, of all ages and sizes) in the field right by my bank barn. The deer were mixed in with my herd of goats and sheep, and Bobbiejean the mule was standing guard facing the nearest property-line, alert and ready to raise the alarm if anything moved.

The deer don't ever come down here, but stay up in the "rough" at the edge of the property, which is why the yuppy neighbors who moved into the McMansion last year built deerstands just on the line.

But it appears like the deer keep a better eye on the calendar than I do and outsmarted the yupps.

Here is WI. the EAB or earn a buck seasone starts tomorrow. You must shoot a doe before you can get a buck tag. Most of the state is under the EAB with a few excetptions. The DNR thinks the deer population is way over the ability of the land to support them. Lot of debate over the DNR thinking, but tomorrow the EAB season starts and runs for 4 days. If you get a doe or anterless deer during the EAB season you still must wait until the regular season to take a buck.

hope you and your critters survive hunting season.
i have gotten to the point in life now that i would rather watch them than hunt them, besides like you said there is alot of folks walking them woods with weapons that don`t need to be. i miss bird hunting and would like to go hog hunting but
doubt if i will this year though i do have my licence.

Hi Bkeeper. Did you get any photos of the animals together? I think that would be something to see.........gfp

I need to just keep a camera with me all the time here at the farm, but I rarely have one when I need it. So no....
