Haven’t visited the game camera since before Christmas…

…because I figured there’d be nothing to see.


Animals always seem to go somewhere else when the weather gets funky.

But yesterday morning I saw mulies in the wash, which reminded me that I ought to at least go check the batteries.

Swapped out the memory card while I was doing that, and this was almost literally the closest thing to an action shot in over two weeks…


No animals, no animal tracks, nothing. The ice is thick but it has separated from the tire. I’ll need to chip it carefully away from the float, though, if I really take it into my head to clear the waterer. Probably I’ll come back in a couple of days and see how nature is doing without my help.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

  1. Kentucky says:

    Sun probably warms the black tire enough to melt the adjacent ice away from it.

  2. Joel says:

    Yup. If the black float does the same thing I’ll come around some afternoon with a crowbar and break up the ice.

  3. Mike says:

    Just remember Joel that if you use bare hands on that ice, it’s gonna hurt.

  4. Joel says:

    Yeah, I’ll learn my lesson and bring a spading fork this time.

To the stake with the heretic!
