Finally we had our first serious snowfall of the year. It started yesterday with just a few flakes, then escalated into white-out conditions today.

PastyNET member Barb Nelson captured the sight of a typical trail in these parts, after the air clears and before the groomer happens along. Barb has lots of other shots and stories over at her website, one of special interest this time of the winter, written by her husband Don - about Bucko the deer.

What a beautiful creature. Again, coming from one who grew up in the UP but has been relegated to other parts of the world to live, this picture comes as a breath of fresh air. In my current corner of the globe we have small 3 foot asian deer...a poor excuse for the beautiful deer in this photo!!

Stefani, I was thinking the same thing.....I moved away from the Keweenaw just last month and I miss it terribly! It's great that I can still see it every day via the Pasty Cam.

Oh ya...been the first to break trail on a number of occassions! In fact, that used to be a reason for a party, (back in the good old days!) Thankfully now tho...I wait for the plows and let them cut the path!

We sure do have winter back! And it is COLD!

What a wonderful story and pictures about Bucko!

By Barb Nelson on Sunday, January 20, 2002 - 08:46 am:

Hello to all,

Glad you are enjoying the pictures and story about
Bucko! As to whether Bucko has returned this
year, we don't know yet. The deer don't come in
to yard-up until they don't have enough food in
the bush. We've only had about 3 deer come in so
far this year. It was mild weather for a long
time this winter. So now they are arriving. I'll
post here when we get our first Bucko Siting!

By Charlie Hopper, Eagle River, MI on Sunday, January 20, 2002 - 09:46 am:

Normally this time of year we also have deer all around our house here above the dunes in Eagle River. This year we have not seen one yet.

I hunt next door to you every Nov. and never see these guys. I know exactly where this is. They sure know when to make themselves scarce.
