4 raccoons and some deer

I bought some pumpkins. This part of the yard is pretty shallow soil cover. I thought it'd be fun to grab the leftover pumpkins from the farm down the road.

I've been pretty sad after Hooper was killed Tuesday night. It helps to keep up on top of my trailcams.

The critters like the pumpkins. The buck was quite happy with the pumpkins. So much so that he neglected to keep up his scrape.

These appear to be our four rehabbed and released raccoons. They are having a grand time. They are on the trailcam every day! There is a momma with 3 young 'uns, but you can tell the size difference.

The snow fell! The fun part about the trailcams is that I can tell when the snow began. sadly, I've still forgotten to change their times over with daylight savings...

I love the snow. I like tracking our critters, too.

It's a popular spot! The bucks kind of fling the heavy pumpkins, breaking off a piece. At 1:33 he chews up the apple, too, then uses his hoof to uncover something.

Great photos and video of the deer and raccoon. I like the pumpkins, I have seen people cut them in half and make bird feeders out of them.
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Enjoy your day, have a great weekend. PS, thanks so much for the visit and comment.

Quite cold there in the early morning, but then the daylight later on, loved the way he rolled the apple then pawed for something else.XXXX

Wow! The snow on the pumpkins is beautiful and how neat to see the critters come to them. I like what Eileen said about cutting them in half so that the birds can get to the seeds. Enjoy your weekend!

I'm so sad to hear about Hooper. He had a wonderful life with you.

this is like having more than two eyes. You see thing that happen in another place or another time.

Marvelous photos and videos. The Apple thief and mum’s reaction gave me a chuckle 🐻
