Bowhunting starts today!!

Fianlly the long awaited season has arrived! It is of course HOT for October, it will be in the 80's today. I hope to go hunting after work today. I will keep everyone updated on what I see.

As for the deer we own....they are all doing well. I am almost done with the pen expansion and the herd will have lots more room to run. I will still have to build another run in shed for them and for storing straw and hay. I have hay and straw on order and will be picking it up this week. We are going to set up straw bales for a few windblock areas around the new pen. i also bought some shade cloth that I will be putting up once the fence is totally complete so the deer have a little more windblock, shade, and protection from things outside the pen. The shade cloth is almost 6 feet tall and will help the deer from running into the fence. Their pen is up against a field and the Combine scares them to no end. I hope the shade cloth will help protect them from some harm. We are also having a lot of people stopping on the road to look at the deer and we hope that shade cloth will deter this.

I have a 2-3 week old fawn that I have had for 1 week. She has little bumps on her skin that are like white scabs. Have you ever seen anything like this on your fawns.
