November 6, 2012 Rainy November Days
As I am typing, the buck....who I have taken photos of twice now, just showed up. No one seems too interested in him today either.
I am....maybe I should go hunting.....wonder where he is going from here!!!
I took advantage of the rainy day to go to town and do errands and get a freezer. Since I am now retired, I have more time to do the home things....gardens....etc. I filled the old freezer with vegies and fruit. I have NO room for venison. So....on the chance one of us is going to get lucky out there one of these days.....no time like the present to go get that done, clean up a spot for it and get it going. Got it done! :)
On another note, the wolf hunting season is going better than I expected. I believe we are at something like 50 wolves taken already. In the cases the paper wrote about...there were multiple wolves when one was shot. This means, I hope, we are on the way to our "educating the wolves" again about what it means to be around people. The guy who registered the first one had 4 come out in the bunch. The one he shot had mange. The second one I saw written up had two in the group he shot one of. Hopefully, the others also were multiples also. Then, we are accomplishing something beneficial. The article today actually admitted that our population of 3.000 wolves probably expands to 6,000 in the spring when they have pups! Duh.....I was wondering when that was going to occur to someone. A population of 3,000 doesn't stay that number indefinitely. When you consider that a good many packs are 4 animals and then multiply that by how many pups the alpha female has.....guess what.....that adds a lot of wolves each year. Yes, I realize some die. Some get hit by cars. Some are killed by government trappers each year.....but, not that many. As far as I know, nobody has shot at "my" area pack yet. I'm hoping.
Well.....it appears the rain isn't going to quit for some time yet....and it is pretty dark and grey.....so, I might just as well put on some rain gear and get in the afternoon walk. Maybe I will sneak up on a buck.....no that the rain quieted down the noisy leaves.
