Mule Deer Bucks

Great Gray Owl Spotting

by Dan Hartman
Sept. 26, 2019

     A couple of interesting things occurred on the way to Cody last evening.

    As we approached the hill leading down into town, we spotted eight mule deer bucks down in the tall grass at the edge of a hayfield.  Six of them were quite impressive.

     Then on the way home we came across a great gray owl perched above the highway.  It was getting dark quickly, but we did watch it disappear into the forest upslope.

     Now this owl is near a couple of nests I found in 2010 & 2012.  My more recent nests three miles to the east were all cut in a large logging effort last fall.

     This gives me hope for next spring.
