Critters in the Woods

There are all sorts of critters that hang out on my 3D range. Deer during the day have occasionally walked within a hundred yards. Of course, there are plenty of squirrels, rabbits, turtles and snakes. Coyote were a problem but seem to have migrated toward chicken coops about a mile up the road.

Practice in the woods one always has to keep an eye on the ground for copperheads and water moccasins. I’ve not encountered any rattlesnakes but have heard that they are out and about.

Turtles are about as abundant as frogs. The birds, including turkey, and constantly in the trees, bushes or pecking at potential meals on the ground.

At night, possum, raccoon and fox are everywhere.  I’ve not seen any bears and I am okay with their absence. The bears are nearby, I know from the complaints of local farmers.

You know, it is a very nice place to practice archery.
