A picture My Darling Wife got of one of the fox hanging around the place.  As long as they leave me alone I will leave them alone but I keep waiting for them to go after My Darling Wife's chickens.  Then I will have to thin the population down.  Taken 7/24/2006.

On the left of this picture you see my boy out for his morning walk climbing the hills and rocks for fun.  I know it's hard to see but there is a fox on the right hand side of the picture watching him.  There is a den of fox on the hill and they are so used to him, they aren't very scared anymore.  Best viewed large to see the fox.  Taken 6/23/2006.

I spooked up two antelope kids (calves, fawns?) yesterday on my way home.  I finally saw mom up on the hill a little ways away.  They ran up to her.  Taken 6/22/2006.

I know it's very hard to see but it's the best shot I could get.  There's a bear right in the middle of the picture going up the hill.  It's been two years since I last saw a bear in this country.  They are pretty scarce but occasionally you do see one.  Taken 6/18/2006.

The cranes are back in the country.  There has been a pair nesting here for about 3 years now and they keep coming back.  They overflew us twice while feeding so I assume they are letting us know they are here.  Taken 4/7/2006.

This is actually a very rare sight in my country.  The hunting pressure is high enough to keep them pretty thinned out.  Taken 4/6/2005.

Sharptail grouse foraging for food during a light snow storm.  There were quite a few more in the area that I didn't get a picture of.  I have never seen so many around during the winter.  Maybe the coyotes will bother them and leave my calves alone.  Taken 2/22/2006.

A couple of hen pheasants outside our house on a windy day.  The past 10 years or so the bird population has really taken off for some reason.  I'm not complaining but it is interesting.  Taken 12/13/2005.

Turkeys and pheasant don't think much of all this weather.  They are out really picking around in the grass.  The pheasants are a little bit behind the turkeys.  Taken 11/30/2005.

Usually by the time snow is on the ground the antelope have left the country to go towards the river but this year the snow was so early they got caught.  Taken 10/06/2005.
