Saturday evening found us enjoying the warm front and bright skies in our favorite deer stand. We a group of nine young ones play together before the rest of the gang came out for dinner. We only saw one antlered deer and he was small.
The deer seemed to be watching something beyond the stand and "spooked" before dark. . When we left the stand we crossed a fresh set of bobcat tracks in the snow. It had come close to the stand in a blind area for us. After having spent so much time with the Pa Elk this fall, we had to retrain ourselves that the slightest movement or sound would cause the deer to run.
