View Full Version : Backyard visitors 2013

This guy comes in almost every day. He jumps the barbwire fence and drinks out of the water trough we have set up. Usually by himself, but, every once in a while he will have about 6 does with him. The fox is a twice a day visitor also, but, I have to take his picture through the back windows because he won't come in if your outside.

Good looking fox Jim. I'm visiting near Buffalo NY and all the fox are covered with mange. The duty whitetail, like your visitor, jumps the fence but then eats the green beans in the garden.

We put the water trough up the hill from our house because the deer would come down to our pond where we have flowers planted and eat all the flowers before drinking out of the pond. My wife was a little upset that every thing she planted was gone the next morning. The water trough has helped a little, wifes planting now last a couple of days at least.

Jim, great pictures! I would love to see fox like that where I live!!! I put in for my mule deer tag in KS, fingers crossed that they draw my name. It will be interesting to try to hunt a mule deer, its much different than hunting the white-tail here at home. LOL! Keep the pictures coming! He's a nice looking buck, give him another year or so and he'll be a grand dandy!

Megan, this year in New Mexico, there were a bunch of tags unsold for the draw. Game and Fish put them up for sale over the counter on line type of thing. Might keep that in mind fi your looking to hunt out of state next year. Don't know what that would cost.

Today we had our regular buck come in and then this monster buck came in a few seconds later. He was pretty spooky and only stayed for a few minutes until the jays spooked him away.
