Thecrittersamongus

Weekend, July 22-23, 2017 — Not, it’s not a disease. It’s an affliction. For some, at least. It’s a way of learning about the habits of creatures and critters which we encounter every day. And there are some hunters who wouldn’t think of going hunting without scouting the area first. That’s as old fashioned as I can say since I always carried a camera with me on every hunt. Just not a trail cam.

Trail cameras have become as familiar to many hunters as bullet or bow and are mostly set up in places that have shown fresh wildlife activity. What the trail cam does is to pinpoint exactly what critters have their pictures taken – both game and non-game animals – and their habits, their habitat, and their addictions. In that latter category, a trail cam can reveal what a critter likes and what he/she doesn’t like. In that way, hunters not only learn their feeding habits but the kinds of food each animal prefers. And some are as predictable as the lowly raccoon.

Speaking of which…we are fortunate to live in a place where wildlife flourishes. For example, I’ve chased big bull moose several times out of my horse pastures – horses don’t like the smell of either moose or bears, and we have both – and while bears generally aren’t interested in horses, they are interested in sweets. In our case, hummingbird feeders. We’ve now had three bears – one in the backyard, one up a nearby tree, and one on our roof, all determined to swipe some of that sweet juice that hummers like. We have cougars – one just outside my office window on one 4:30 am morning as I arrived to start work on this publication – wild turkeys, geese, ducks, badgers, fox, lynx, cottontails, coyotes, and lots of other stuff; lots of other raccoons, in particular. Just last night a mother and four baby raccoons were spotted swiping seeds from our backyard squirrel feeder. And then there’s the deer – whitetails mostly around pastures and hay fields, and mulies in the foothills, with elk in the timber, and antelope in the nearby sagebrush hills.

Often we’re able to grab a SLR camera to film the daily lives of wildlife we, at other times, hunt for food and for the sport of the challenge. But if you’re a really inquisitive hunter, a trail cam properly placed and left to its own devices, might just give you a look into the cycle of all kinds of wildlife, which is exactly our intent in presenting to you some images of the critters that live among all of us in whichever part of the country you call home. So enjoy this look into this edition of…

Extreme Buck Fight 2 “On the Road” 5:38 min.

Trail Camera Wildlife Mysteries 5:59 min.

Often at night we wonder about the wild sounds heard just inside the forest. Using a high definition motion activated camera I was curious to experiment and see what species would walk in front of the camera. After a lifetime of tracking animals by prints in the snow and mud this was something very different for me to try.

The Badger Whisperer – Face to Face with the American Badger! 4:38 min.

The Internet has made the Honey Badger a true celebrity but in the wake of its stardom North America’s Badger has gone a bit unnoticed…until now! This week Coyote Peterson and the crew are headed into the back country of Montana to work with Moxie, an American Badger who was abandoned as a cub and raised in captivity to be an ambassador for her species.

Mountain Lion Stand Off With Hiker 1:52 min.

Here is my standoff with a mountain lion that happened last summer in Glacier National Park.

Holy Big Moose, Batman! 0:51 sec.

Dog gone nuts but brave despite the difference in size.

Grizzly Mother Bear Chases Down Elk – Most Shocking Kill 1:04 min.

The grizzly bear is at the top of the food chain. This awe inspiring giant has the ability to reach speeds of over 30 miles an hour! In this rare footage, filmed from a helicopter hovering above Yellowstone, we witness a large mother Grizzly bear chase down a young elk. This may be the fastest bear ever filmed in the wild! The elk calf has a chance to escape, until it makes a fatal mistake. Nature can seem cruel. But as the mother bear’s cubs approach, we are reminded that oftentimes in the wild, something has to die for something else to live.

Caught in the Wild 9:57 min.

My cousins and I untangle a wild deer caught in a barb wire fence in Northeast Kansas. Sorry about the lousy filming. My little brother did most of it. I had to cut a lot of the footage. I think he was caught up in the show. This was recently featured on Animal Planet’s ‘Untamed and Uncut’

Segregated Gun Owners

ALAN KORWIN | July 21, 2017 — How much longer will gun owners tolerate discrimination and be segregated because they bear arms? It is increasingly clear that segregating people because they exercise the civil and human right to bear arms in defense of themselves is a disgraceful criminal act of civil-rights discrimination. It is increasing. The perpetrators are growing bolder in their demands and actions.

Their actions are no different than the segregationist policies practiced against other protected classes and civil-rights groups. The reasons are the same as well — fear, irrational hatred of things unfamiliar, pure prejudice, bias and uncontained hostility aimed at the target of their rage, in this case, decent American gun-owning citizens.

Seconds, Anyone?

STEVE COMUS | July 1, 2017 — Does “Second Amendment” equate to “second class?” Why is it that over the years the U.S. Supreme Court has been reticent to delve into gun rights? This question certainly didn’t get answered recently when the high court declined to hear two types of gun ownership/use cases.

There is something about the word “second.” The term “second fiddle” comes to mind, as does the title of Bill Jordan’s book “No Second Place Winner.” What about the “second” amendment to the U.S. Constitution? Seems as though the Second Amendment gets the stepchild treatment, even when it comes to the Supreme Court. The high court historically has made a habit out of not wanting to tangle with the right to keep and bear arms – one way or another, and hence has tended to ignore or avoid it more than one might logically expect.

California’s Paranoid Democrats Giddy Over Mag Ban

BOB ROGERS | July 1, 2017 — California Democrats are the laughing stock. They think they’ve solved the problem of criminal violence. Pass a law and the problem goes away. Except that it doesn’t. The majority of the state’s population is pulled along on puppet strings and they just don’t give a blank one way or another. “Just leave me alone and go away,” is the casual response to a robo call, an email, a poster passer-outer ringing the doorbell. When Democrats took over the state legislature in 1996 – and won a supermajority in 2016 – they felt they were given a mandate to do anything they wanted. And they did. [read more]
