Surprising Findings, tracking bear

When tracking bear, it is important to remember that there are hundreds of other wildlife opportunities that may arise. You may find a baby kingfisher, having waddled out of its cave. Or you may come across those sweet little tracks made by a passing fox looking for food.
Sometimes, however, you are lucky to enough to find something that everyone dreams about- (by everyone, I mean me and my assistants.)
Yes, the hound dog, using her exquisite nose and waiting for my command (HA!) left our trail of bear to find the next best thing- a deer carcass.
It was perfect, complete with all 4 legs and those fantastic articulating toes. Yes, deer have toes. The head still included furry ears and a sweet little tongue. Ah, the thrill of the hunt.

My assistants and I of course did the only logical thing- we gathered up our prize and brought it back to our lovely home. I know, this dreamy find may produce some jealousy. As I am sure that everyone wishes that they could have a full deer carcass in their front yard. I mean, who wouldn't want to be greeted by the 600lb dead animal when they get home from work. And, although I apologize for rubbing this in, who would not want one particular leg of the beast in their house when they get up in the morning.

  1. Ewwww! And Yay! Are you going to keep the skull like Carmen does. Speaking of Carmen. She just arrived in Bangor Maine yesterday and is now out at Clayton Lake traking Lynx. She will be in the backcountry for 9 days and then 5 in Bangor. Two loved ones in Maine!
