Why was I thinking a CJ major?
You don't have to respond to that.
Electric golf cart will solve that walking problem

I have strongly considered an electric bike. They have come a long way.
The morning dog walk down the drive is not the problem. It is the 300' vertical over 800 yards of rough rock that knocks the snot out of my Ranger 900 to the top. Some of the rock face is more reminiscent of mountain goat terrain.
I've been putting in some quality stand time and haven't seen a deer in a week.
The 9 is back on camera alive and healthy with no holes and seems to have replaced the 8 on the 2a.m. shift.
The whole doe herd in one picture, 4 does and a button buck.
The red delicious that I mowed.
I sure hope you get the 9 G. Our deer turn in to different animals after gun season. They don’t get tons of pressure on our property, but see a steady stream of intrusions all around.
Good luck G. My deer here are in a post rut pattern. Eat...sleep...and minimal travel. I’ve seen 6 deer and 26 turkeys at the creek bluff property this morning. Got lost in a 20 acre field walking in due to fog. Came out 100 yds from my blind.
Deer in different areas handle pressure differently. What I can get by with on my rural property 30 miles south of here I absolutely cannot get by with up here in the big woods.
The 29th was the last day of gun season. I choose to drive to Michigan to labor on the horse farm that day to avoid winter weather which was forecast for the following day. The doe herd remains intact.
I had what I believe to be a return from last year who I had yet to see.
The little button buck trying to buddy up.
I found an accidental Tank style breeding on line and I virtually picked one out and this is his 4 week old picture.
I received a 5 week picture on Saturday and
yesterday at 6 weeks the lady says that mother no longer is feeding and that they are ready to go. 6 weeks is too early so I'm stalling a day or two. If he has yet to learn bite inhibition Tank will help him. We may no longer be welcome to labor at the horse farm.
Good report from Stone Branch. Congratulations on the addition to the family.
I did my puppy rescue today. Comparing Tank at 8 weeks 28lbs and this guy at six weeks 6.25lbs is kind of apples and oranges. He growled at Tank once and he is still alive.
A bit of culture shock but he is hanging with the big dogs now.
Referring back to Geo in Co, Tank was 24lbs at 9 weeks. This little guy has some serious catching up to do. I'm going to get him going on some deer meat.
They seem to have taken to each other, which is a big thing. If Tank didn't like him from day one there'd be a lot of tension.
Tank got after him once today and as horrific as it sounded other than being a bit traumatized the little guy was no worse for wear. A couple of minutes ago Tiny was carrying on in his cage and Tank growled at him and he instantly shut his mouth and laid down. Generally speaking if you come out of a squabble with Tank alive and not needing emergency surgery, you are his friend. Tiny's prognosis is good but guarded.
Cute little fella. I’m on a waitlist for a lab puppy - can’t wait to have a dog again. The woods aren’t the same without a dog.
Another deer less morning and
evening for me. I'm going to have to do something a bit different to see a deer.
Yesterday was a good dog day, no more trauma. Tiny is a good natured fella and he started holding his bowels for outside. Tank is enjoying his new friend which is the main reason for getting the puppy.
I hope that your wait isn't too long and that you end up with your perfect new buddy.
Tiny grew 50% this past week.
I finally got the bright idea to put up a camera to see what has been leaving all of that poop Tank has been eating in the radish patch in the cabin's back yard.
and as it turns out I have been working too hard to see a deer.
The pics of those two dogs getting along like that are downright adorable. Anyone who says otherwise is full of it.
Seems they like piles of corn...
That bucks been in relative safety right under your nose, living by the old adage; keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
