congratulations on the new stompin' grounds 8) 8) even better with hidden treasure(s).  With all the "open" ground to your north, there will surely be plenty of "free range" critters to see, and maybe invite one or two to stay in your freezer ;) I bet you maybe see a meese or two, and some large long legged wild dogs too.  Winter's coming on, did you have to leave your firewood stash at the old place? or you got plenty of good seasoned wood stacked at the new place?  Wow! I zoomed out a bit to get a reference to your locale, you are really close to the border there, how far is the border from where your northern line is?

I'm afraid firewood is a bit irrelevant when I have no building anywhere.  :D    The cabin is still on my sisters land and I still have squatters rights there as I always have. :)  It is also, a quarter mile farther away from the new land.

We have coyotes, we have wolves, we have cougars, we have anything that will eat a deer fawn. We also have Canadians. :)   Not sure how far the border is, but the cell phone always is asking me if I want to connect to the Canadian Tower.  As the crow flies, it aint far.

Wow, you got big cats there?!  Growing up a bit west of you, in Vilas Co, Wisc, and also living in Dickinson Co, U.P., (Iron Mtn area), I knew there was bobcat, and Lynx, but did not know that there were bigger cats there, very interesting!  I am sure you will turn it into a very nice retreat.  Cant wait to see what you do with it 8)

This was not very far at all from my property. There had been plenty of sitings before this, and since, Lou saw a cat leap his driveway and ditches in a bound, and it had a long tail...

Wow, that is kind of cool to see they are coming back on their own.  Would be great to see a herd of Wood Bison come back in the region again.  That would be something!

Glad to hear it Jeff.  8)

Curious, what will the landowner use your old property for? i.e. why did he want it?

Lou didn't get the land, Lou got the cash. Mark got the land. ;)    Mark has almost all hardwood. Very little cedar. With this twenty, Mark now has a couple hundred acres total now. Marks property, which is only across the road, is totally different. Yellow sand, lots of rocks. you cross the road, and its peet and other hydric soils.

Had to look at your pictures again and the way you stated it about mother nature absorbing the old iron, I think the trees are getting their revenge on the old mowers, I'd love to have one like those.  I'd probably just end up having to fix it and use it though  ;D.

I'm guessing it's open season on the yotes and closed to the wolves and cats but how does it work for the Canucks?  Lottery?  ??? ;) :) ;D :D

There is a wolf season this year, but they aint going to kill near enough of them. it runs concurrent with firearms deer season. $100 license, and you call each night to see if the quota was met or if the hunt is still on.

Just read about the dwindling wolf population on Isle Royale, and the Nat'l Park Service hasn't announced (or decided yet) what to do... add more wolves or not, to bolster the dwindling number.
Ongoing since 1958 said to be the longest-running predator-prey relationship in the world.   Currently only 8 wolves said to be there.   source Wisconsin Outdoor News. Nov. 1, 2013
