It was a good weekend. I went out with the rifle on Saturday looking to fill my doe tag, I had a chance at one but missed as it was running 40 miles an hour through a field (at least it seemed to be running that fast). But, I spent more time scouting for fisher and bobcat with those seasons starting next Saturday. I also found a beaver dam with lots of fresh cuttings.

And with the snow moving through, that finally seemed to get the mink moving as I caught my first one of the season yesterday.

Another cold one this morning, only 27 and they are calling for a chance of snow all week long.

Have a great day everyone. :D

Good luck with the chicken thief Chief.

They are calling for snow to move in here this morning and could accumulate 3 to 6 inches by tomorrow morning.

Have a great day everyone. :D

think I got the chicken killer narrowed down to a couple of suspects ....looks like coons have been coming through once in awhile..but my main suspects are weasels ....the dead chickens were laying where they were killed. very little meat consumed .their throats were tore open with most of the blood consumed.i seen around the building several piles of junk with small holes about the size of a baseball.then there was the distinct smell of a musky weasel scent..i sat 4 live traps for the coons and 18 rat traps.rat traps as in mouse trap style for the weasels ...we will see tomorrow...
