This past weekend I took part in the gun-deer hunt here in Wisconsin. I sat in my stand both Saturday and Sunday. We had above average temperatures, right around 50 degrees, which made it okay to be outside.
While sitting there, I observed a number of animals. I saw blue jays, red-bellied woodpeckers, crows, geese, black-capped chickadees, mourning doves, turkey, and grouse. There were also white-tailed deer and squirrels. Insects are alive, so I will mention ants, spiders, lady-bugs, and flying things.
It is amazing how these animals allowed me to sit there and observe them. Not all animals run and hide when you are near. Most of these creatures were in constant flux. They never were completely still. They were always searching, sniffing, and scrounging. It was nice to see this amount of wild life. I just wish I had seen a buck.
