New Location New Resources

I find it odd that I moved less than a mile seven months ago and the resources here are so much different than they were at the other house.

At the other house we had coyotes and deer, chipmunks and squirrels, an owl, maple trees, and cottonwood.

Here we've got the coyotes, even more deer, squirrels, oak trees, and now snakes, rabbits and red fox.

Now these are all naturally occurring resources and not landscaping and wildlife management choices that have been made by the village. That means that the small ecosystem here has developed differently than the one less than a mile from here.

I'm going to have to find another area nearby to see if the same holds true there.

If you can trade chipmunks and cottonwood for rabbits, snakes, and red fox simply by moving your camp a half mile it may be worth the small effort. (I am not a fan of the chipmunk.) :)

Thanks for reading,
