Winter in our high country is still very much intact, even this far south.

Picture from yesterday with 7 inches of new wet snow on top of a foot of winter snow not yet melted. Was going to check out access to my camp. Far as I got, still seven miles to go and another 1500 feet in elevation. Looks like another 3 weeks at least before I can go there except by snow machine.

My son has been live trapping them in a cage trap for fun and letting them go. Brought one home the other day and had it in the house for a couple of days. Man they are a tame for a wild animal. He could just pick it up without a struggle and hold it. It hopped around the house for a while. In and out of the bathtub. Kind of a kick. No attempt to try and defend itself other than to wiggle a little bit. But then settled right in to being pet.

I was surprised too. Worried it would bite. It didn't. They carried it around in a towel as the long legs were a little bit much for my 6 year old at times. Funny to watch them walk with those long legs. I am sure if it had hit the lawn it would have been gone in a flash.

Cool picture, those specks are tasty. I don't see any blood, it must have died from the repeated concussions from the shotgun! smile
