Deer are back at Camp Chicken

Last weekend the deer returned to Camp Chicken. Dan's encounter with the wolf must have scared it out of the area and when we checked the deer cam we had 46 pictures and all of the deer feeding stations were empty. There were lots of deer tracks at each spot and it was obvious that they had been in eating quite often.

Here is a Mom and Baby that came in on Tuesday for a early morning snack:


This doe got upclose and personal with the deer cam:




I thought this was a really pretty pose by this alert doe:


If you look closely at the bottom of this photo you can see that we had "Midnight Bandits". I just wish I had positioned the camera to point a little lower:

I love the deer cam. It is like Christmas each time I go get it and download the digital pictures onto my laptop. I wish I had two or three more cameras to put up around Camp Chicken. It's like having a secret window into the world of Camp Chicken wildlife.

Cool photos, Cathy! Loved the raccoons, too. Made me think about that one that snuck up on you in camp this summer...

I love seeing the pictures everyone gets with the deer cams. My favorites are the ones, like the one you had, where the deer gets up close and personal with the camera.
