We hosted the MSU
Wildlife Management Techniques
course for a second time.
Students placed five
around the property to see what animals wander by.
One camera placement was near the skeleton of a deer kill
left by a mountain lion
A month later,
students practiced use of
equipment and collected data from the cameras.
to see a gallery of selected pictures.
They have left the cameras to see if they get pictures of bears when
temperatures warm up.
While placing cameras the students spotted two moose.
Two weeks later we saw the two juveniles we pictured
last Memorial Day
and suspect they are the ones the students saw.
The pair have grown quite a bit since Spring and will probably be ready
for mating Fall of 2010.
A day after our sighting,
guests Dale and Kathy
spotted the smaller of the two
and we used snow shoes to track him
through the property.
