Hats off to all coyote hunters out in the woods....
I think the problem is there is no place left to yard up,Was out snowmobiling Sunday about 5:30 pm. We never went 1 mile out the back road and there was a moose on the road. It could not get off the road as the snow banks were about 8 ft plus high.We just slowly pushed it along as I knew there was a place around the bend that he could get off. He found it and over the bank he went and ended up in the snow half way up his chest. He had to work hard to get through the snow. I sat there and wondered how the deer will survive at all.
About 5 miles away there was another moose. They are feeding along the edges of the back roads , at least the ones that were plowed a few times.
Was talking Saturday morning to a neighbor who has been trying to cut tamarack all winter to feed his outdoor furnace. He said as soon as he cuts down a tree , 8 deer are eating at the buds. He says they are real thin and hungry.
I think we are real trouble with deer in the south this winter.
Deer don't seem to yard up around here like they used to.
