Critters Crossing


Earlier this month I posted a photo of a doe and wild turkey poults in Bent Tree. The photo was taken last June. That was actually the last photo in a series. Here are some more photos, from that day last summer, that tell more of the story.  I stopped to let a doe and turkey cross the road, then saw a couple of poults. Then they just kept coming. It was like the doe was the crossing guard for the turkeys.

The Deer Stocking Program in Georgia

The topic of the deer restocking program in Georgia was discussed at the June Lake & Wildlife meeting and recently on various BT social media platforms.  Click here for a related post from 2012 (the photo below, taken in Bent Tree, is also from 2012). The bottom of that post has a link to a pdf of “Deer Stocking Program in Georgia” which was written in 1975. The deer stocking program continued until 1992.
