The forecast calls for 20-25 inches coming my way this weekend. That storm will mean that we have seen almost 6 feet of snow in the past 3 weeks. It has snowed about every other day. I think everyone who pays attention to the deer herd is watching and hoping that the lack of snow early on in the winter allowed for the deer to store up more fat and get more food to be able to survive 6 feet of snow in such a short time.

Last spring the turkey season was eliminated from Northern Maine because of the snow fall amounts and concern over the breeding success rates.
Living in a state that can get slammed by Mother Nature, keeps you on your toes. We obsess over survival rates, impact of snow and ice and habits stability. Who knows how much snow we will really get and how these animals are getting by. Fingers crossed.
Until then, I am grateful that I live with a couple of boys who love to shovel!
