I get all sorts of critters hanging out on the range. In North Carolina my least favorite were moccasins and copperheads. Here in Georgia it is timber back rattlesnakes and copperheads.
Sometimes I do see deer moving though the woods. There are always squirrels. Rabbits frequently hop past and hawks fly around looking for something to eat.
I keep my spotting scope in my range. I used to haul it in and out every day. Now I just cover it and it stays outside year round.
The other day when I pulled the cover from the sight I was greeted by a little green tree frog. I didn’t flick him off. I figured he would move when he was ready. He did move.
