Many of you may have seen pictures I’ve posted over the years with my herd of deer on my property. Well, I think mother nature knows best. 2020 is the year of … well, nuff said! It’s also the first time I’ve seen my “herd” get their winter coats in mid September. What is Mother Nature telling us? I’m guessing winters cold wind isn’t far off. We did have flurries in some areas last week and it’s been a bit chilly the past week or so as well. Get ready…my deer don’t lie! Any predictions for the first accumulating snow that sticks to the ground? I’m going to say October 22nd! We’ll see. I wish the deer herd could communicate and give me the scoop.
