That's an awesome looking place, Don. Plenty of room for play and relaxing hikes.

Thanks.
I just took the pic of the turkey nest yesterday.
The day before, I was doing one of my power runs up a hill, and mama turkey waited till I was right on top of her before she jumped up at me and took off. About had a freakin' heart attack! Turkeys make one hell of a racket when you spook 'em. My heartbeat was already close to max without adding that to it.
I'd like to go back and get pics of the chicks, but I don't know exactly when they'll hatch. I also don't want to bother her too much, or she'll abandon the nest.

Yeah, then you'll only have the deer, blulebirds and eggs left for your sources of good protein. On the serious side - nice pics, Don.

Newp. Most of these critters are safe. From me anyway. They're just fer lookin' at.
Come hunting season, I do occasionally pop a few squirrels and rabbits. Maybe a deer, but for all the trouble, a beef roast tastes much better. Plus, hauling a 170lb deer up these hills is murder. Although I wouldn't mind finding the one that turned my beautiful brand new $75.00 Blue Spruce into Charlie Brown's Christmas tree...

Man, that was one voracious deer! We have major deer problems where I live in NJ (for a few years, my county had the unpleasant distinction of having the highest incidence of Lyme Disease in the country), but they haven't yet gone after my spruces. (I thought they weren't supposed to eat anything that prickly?)

I've often thought of putting up a heat-sensing, automatic Gatling gun, though.

Dave, he didn't eat it.
He used it for rubbing the velvet off of his antlers just before the rut.
Supposedly, this area has the largest, most well nourished deer in the country. So much so that Ted Nugent bought some land somewhere just north of me, just for hunting deer. And during the fall rut, they can be quite aggressive. Last fall I was running the trails in a rain storm. That's the best time to actually run up on game because of the covering noise and all the leaves are wet. I happened upon a very large ten pointer who must've thought I was after one of his girlfriends. He stood there, pawed at the ground and snorted at me. I yelled at it thinking that would scare him away, but it didn't. Instead, it took a few steps toward me, prompting me to hide behind a tree. He snorted and pawed a few more times, then finally ran off. For a moment there, I thought I was in deep doodoo.

I get lots of wildlife in SoCal. I see possums lying in the street everyday. I have 2 wild beasts that play in my backyard once the weather gets warm. My wife says they're our kids, but I don't recognize 'em.
Now, if it was 70 deg. and sunny in the winter where you live Don, I'd be there in a heartbeat!

Yeah, the winters can be brutal, and ya just haven't lived till you do a WOD outside when it's 98 deg f ,100% humidity. Soaked in sweat just thinking about it.
