Went for a Winter walk outside of the city and found some deer.

Walked along their trail to find their beds, their food and poop and.....them!

A great day for a walk in snowshoes.

As you also notice, no antlers... Is this a sign Spring is coming!?

Looks like one male and three ladies.

Also found some skin with hair attached, lots of turkey vultures around the area, but not close to this remains.

I'm thinking Coyote.

That looks more like a piece of deer.

And it inspired me to go for a jaunt of my own. No deer though.

Found some sheds, just no antlers. :wink:

Hair on that piece is about 2inches or more, more dog like to me than deer.

I have never found any sheds, found a few skeletons, beaver, moose, lynx.

But I keep looking.

Not "hunting", just walking around in an area that is quite deerful:

Yes, I see your point......

See the deer, does the deer have any doe?.......Ya, two bucks..............nyuk nyuk nyuk

I love winter travel, with so much sign visable. I had an interesting walk a couple of weeks ago on the section of Avon Trail I walk every day. Half way into the walk I came across some scat, likely coyote (feral dog, perhaps wolf) very fresh. I did a large loop and eventually crossed my inbound track were I saw some fresh urine (not there when I went in) as I continued I found more fresh scat (still warm, don't ask) on my inbound snowshoe print. 150 yds. he/she left the trail and headed into the bush. I went a little further and hid out of sight hoping for a sighting but after awhile I started to chill out and left. Close encounters likely happen more than we think and once the snow is gone we are generally unaware. I'm going to buy one of those motion activated cameras, there are many critters that take advantage of my snowshoe float.

Cheers,
Ken
