A nice healthy bull

It seems he likes apples!

I think he knows where the apples are coming from, and that I'm watching!

The buck stops up there & the bears are still around and a nice honey bee photo

I like this one. Click on it.
Honey bee on small yellow flowers. An astragalus 

Not a trophy, but a nice blacktail for the freezer later on!

 I wondered why the camera had been unplugged & the battery and wire 10 or 15 feet away back in the trees. Usually it's an elk that chews up the wire, but it all was still in good shape. I thought I knew what had done it & I was right. The bear just didn't want me taking his (or her) picture I guess. 

                                                      A closeup. Probably from the rear
This is why I don't put any of the hives up on the hill. I do have a 12v fence charger, but it would be a risk even so. Not being the world's most accomplished bee keeper, they have enough problems putting up with my administrations. I don't need any help from the bears.

This week's game cam photos

  The elk are here now, but this cow is the only one on the cameras.

  I'm pretty sure that photo #4 is a young bigfoot.

 It's nice to see such a variety of animals on one camera in such a short time!
