Just got back from 4 days at my cabin on Bear Ck.(ELK CO)Spent 2 days sneaking thru the woods. (close to the road and several miles into the woods) Very little deer sign anywhere. Dick B was right in saying the buckthorn is taking over up there. Went spotting from the ball fields to the bridge past the Halton Hilton Saw a total of 4 deer the first night and 7 the next. Talked to several locals who spot quite often, and they were surprised I saw that many!! Dick, pink strips hanging everywhere in the area. Whats up with this? I hope the trails they cut for these strips will grow up with some healthy plant, but I doubt it with all the buckthorn. Any new plans for plants and deer in this area? Anything new on the buckthorn takeover? Deer or no deer its always great to be at camp!!!
