This was the first morning in months that I was able to get to all the stands. I had hoped to go shed hunting, but the remains from 3″ of heavy, pasty, snow made that almost futile.
I found yet another balloon. Why so many find their way here in such a remote place is beyond me.
I did see one set of fresh moose track heading for Buck Knob from #3 stand. No deer tracks anywhere! The biologist from Keene found 24 coyote-killed deer in 10 days. Northern New England may have lost as many as 25% of their deer herd this winter.
I took a few photos as I set up the camera on Buck Knob.
Here is a photo of moose rubs while looking through the rungs of stand #3.
I counted 14 rubs within view of the stand. Tony found two sheds within view of that stand, and I found one a couple of years ago.
