We (zone 102) had a phenomenal winter. Only plowed the driveway 3 times all winter, and only one storm with a significant amount.( 30-40 cm). Our deer population is thriving. Deer are in very good shape. I expect a bumper crop of fawns this year.

Research has shown that 1 in 5 Liberal supporters is "just as stupid" as the other 4!

A liberal is a lot like a slinkey........They both put a smile on your face when you push them down the stairs!

I have seen a good number of deer here, 5 last evening out for a walk and 6 the previous day all in the fields close by to home.

The deer look to be in good shape as well.

On Monday there was a large Bobcat sitting at the start of a trail behind our house.

It  was there for 10 minutes cleaning itself like cats do.

It was easy to notice and watch because it was only 30 feet from the house.

I remember watching bambi for the first time when I was little and my favourite part
was when they killed bambi's mother because I knew somwhere the hunters
family was eating good that night never understood why they made him out to be the
bad guy.

We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but We are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works.

There isn't in the woods compared to the past glory days here. 16 in the old pasture this year ( most in years by the way ) vs 80 plus for many many years. Towns and around towns are full of them smile.png however

Guys say lots of deer in CB and I say compared to what when we had almost none left yes in that case true BUT . Guess I am comparing when guys here made a living off guiding deer hunters who would come to the cape from all over canada and the US to hunt. Sure don't see that today sad.png

Honestly very few bucks and tons of does overall. Ratio is screwed beyond

 But the herd are being managed by DNR rolleyes.gif so it says it all

Cheers

Dont know who claims that one ! Lmao , lots in the woods from what weve seen , going for a weekly trip , highest # so far yarded up was 26 , wont say what area from Sydney to Grand River but least we seen at once was 3 most was 26 , thought we spotted a single doe last week , stopped the truck to see 5 more inside tree line looking out at us .

I can go count town deer in certain areas any day ,rather get out our stopping grounds and go find those not being fed to keep em around . So many say they dont but Local CO-op dealer says feed sales are double lasts yrs due to so many bored staying home. Guess the local deer are enjoying it

Yep agree . sad.png If you didnot get your deer by day three you were drunk in the cabin and never tried and we only had one month, one weapon and no sundays or trail cams

 I always booked two weeks vacation for deer season and most years by middle of first week I was off to PEI goose hunting ( the priority :) )

Cheers
