Ranching and Wildlife

Ranchers live a pretty incredible life. Here are scenes from the past few days out in the field.

A porcupine came to visit Mark's carefully tended aspen trees near our cabin at harrison Lake.  We loaded it into a trash can and transported it far away, towards a spot with more wild trees.

A whitetail deer fawn, probably only a day old.  We found them on our driveway, and the doe brought it into the hayfield, told it to lie down, and ran far enough away to draw our attention elsewhere.

Curlew eggs!  I almost stepped on mother curlew, and her broken wing act alerted me to something precious nearby.  A "life bird" in birding terms- or rather a "life bird nest"!

Fencing in the morning, serenaded by Curlews, Meadow Larks, and sparrows.

The heavily used elk trails on a beeline from the neighbor's open pastures to our delicious field of sanfoin, a tasty legume.  The broken fence wires are proof of their nightly visits.

Elk tracks, heading "home" to undisturbed daytime pastures free of cattle and ranchers.  They'll be back again tonight!
