Private Zoo Pics from The Bear Den



I got some new Pictures of our pets, so I figured you guys would enjoy these.

Various Deer are here nearly every day.
They like to Lay around, and they like to eat grass.
They also help clean up under my Bird Feeders, along with Squirrels, Coons, and anything else that comes by with an appetite for Oil Seeds.

Mrs Bear has a bit of a friendship with Freddie the Fox.
She makes sure there is always water in the bowl we have under the Hummingbird feeder that catches the catches the drips that leak from the feeder.
She also got a Free Bag of Dog food at Tractor Supply, and put a little in the back yard for Freddie.
Lately it seems he only shows up about once a week, during the day. (he's probably here every night after dark)

I had to laugh, a couple days ago Mrs Bear was sitting out on the Deck, and Freddie was in the yard, about 30’ from the deck, and they were having a Great time. Freddie was just sitting there looking at her, just like a dog would sit, and Mrs Bear was doing all the talking. She was telling him how pretty he was, and telling him he was such a good boy. So far Freddie hasn’t said anything to her, but I told her “If he gets much closer, or decides to come up on the deck, while she’s out there, that will be the time to get her Butt in the House. LOL—She said, “Yeah-Yeah-Yeah—I Know!!”

So below are some Deer pictures, and only One Picture of Freddie.
He was standing in our Pet Cemetery, visiting “Shadow” our 12 1/2 year old Black Lab, and “Bozo” our 17 year, 3 months old Cat.


Hope you all enjoy the Pics.

Great pics . If a cow walks in the yard you'll have your burger mix on the hoof .
Fred's getting big . She should enjoy carefully .
Nice Blue bird house . 1 1/2 " hole no perch . You make that ?

These types of pics are some of my favorite posts of yours. I guess we live too close to a busy road. We have deer pass though or stop to eat apples from our tree, but we never see them just hang out relaxing in the yard...JJ

I just put deer whistles on my truck. I'm not sure they work or not, but since I almost hit two the other day that jumped in front of my truck. I have to try something. I wish ours were as relaxed as yours Bear. Nice pics.

Point for sure

Cool pictures. Love that they are comfortable enough to just hang around and relax on their weekend. LOL. Thanks for sharing.

They seem to work pretty well, Chris. But if you have wild horses in your area, they really put the run on them. Of course, they seem to want to run along side of the truck. :emoji_laughing::emoji_cry:

The last house we had, in Coopersburg, was even farther from the road.
The deer used to sleep half the night in my front yard. I could count the beds the next morning, by the Deer-sized matted down spots in my Grass. 26 Beds one night!
And Thanks for the Like.

Great post, I love all the pics.

Had to sacrifice my yearly deer hunt this year so its nice to get to deer watch here.
If I have any luck I may get to do some free feral pig hunting. I just gotta get some freakin time. Ben spending every weekend this month working my tail off to get a rental property ready for rent again but soon I'll have a free hunting weekend! :D

Haven't seen any Turkeys for almost a year.
Snow will probably get them moving again.
Used to see them often!!

Nice pics! Eventually I'll have a patch of land where I can see wildlife in my yard like that.
