My parents have had a snowshoe hare around the house for a few months. Typically, we see one and within a week it is gone (via interaction with a vehicle) but recently, there were two and then three. All of the adults and kids were outside playing and those hare would race across the back lawn, run along the edge of the garden and at one point, one of them ran along the edge of the house. They were cute at first but they are getting a little too comfortable around humans. Maybe they will head somewhere else this fall… or maybe their lack of caution will result in more car altercations and less human ones. Life with wild critters is never calm!
Steve cleared a small section to increase a little food plot we use for the game camera. We piled the brush and trees to create a big place for the hare. I'm hoping for more of them for the bobcats and to hunt this winter. As a plus, they keep Ava busy. She can't catch them but she loves to "hunt" for them.
