I think the whitetails here have started. I've noticed some hanging in one spot all day. I hope they keep the little buggers out of the hayfields! Nothing makes me feel like a lowlife like running over one. Two years ago I saw one by luck and was anle to mow around it. The field looked stupid with a circle of grass left along the one side, but it saved one.
I have a doe hanging out in my front field. Pretty sure she's got one hid. There's usually one or two each year. She's never very far away and comes snortin around when the dog or I get close to where the little one must be.
The neighbor that mows my hay always waits a few extra weeks.
A small bear passed through the other morning and the doe about had a fit!
Neat time of year.
