From my son-in-law’s tree-cam in their backyard. Mama and her two kids come several times a day to eat the apple-infused corn he spreads for them. And when the oak and nut trees drop their bounty onto the leafy ground they can be heard crunching on those too. He’s currently bow-hunting in the southern part of Ohio. He won’t hunt females or their young. They also have a couple of young bucks coming into the backyard but won’t go after them yet either. Something tells me even if they were fully grown and racked bigly he might not even bag one. Sorta like the old “shooting fish in a barrel” mentality. I think he sees their yard as a sanctuary or somesuch. He’s a very good custodian of nature, that guy. When he fishes he mostly throws them back. Anyhow, we love spotting and watching them watching us, especially our quizzical 3-year-old Grandson.
