Ever get visitors at work?

Last year about this time I had a doe and two of her fawns that would come around when I was skidding. Would stand about 50 ft. away and watch me get off the tractor, hookup and skid a log out and never attempt to run off.
Give me a new saw chain and I can find you a rock in a heartbeat.

Up here in snow country deer know if they hear a saw running there might be a fresh supply of food on the ground.  They often come to check it out.

I cut with a tractor on my land. I don't see anything that nice,horns,but do see alot of deer.I was cutting a bog off one winter, I would save a cedar tree for them to clean up each time I was down there. Would look like fish bones the next day. I was skidding the wood up to the landing about 500 feet away. I could see the deer in the woods waiting for me to leave each time. They would let me get close to them each time I came back.I see more deer on my tractor than when I am walking. Last winter I was cutting hard wood. I would cut the tops off and leave them for the deer. The next day I would twitch out the tops and leave some more for them.

We were marking timber in a open, clean floor, piney woods several years back.  One of the hands walked up and said look behind us.  There was a coyote about 50 yards off, sitting there.  I asked how long had he been there, the guy said he had been following us for about 30 minutes.  He staid with us till we turned and went back on the line.

Friendly fella.

You just had to go and mention the fact that there was no snow!
This is the same spot where the deer was standing. I took this picture probably 2 hours after you posted about no snow.
 

 
The weather guessers are predicting 5" to 10" by tomorrow evening. Oh well, this is New Mexico, if you don't like the weather wait a few minutes.

I tried to go to work this morning, and the state police had the road closed. :-\
What the heck is this world coming to? 6 or 8 inches of snow, and they close the roads.

Yes, there are 5 or 6 state plows on that side of the mountain, and 5 or 6 on the other. They closed the schools too.  ??? When my kids were in school they wouldn't even delay the start of school unless there was over a foot of snow.

Back on topic. I went out to the job this morning, where there was about 7" of snow. The little buck was there with 6 girlfriends.  ;D
