Forked Deer

I went walking in the woods this afternoon. Even though the temperatures were in the teens here in Wayne, there was no wind and it felt warmer. I thought some of getting the snow shoes or cross country skis out, but since there's only a few inches of snow from the storm, I decided to just jump into my boots and walk... good choice! There are some paths off the front yard, not only for humans to use, but apparently for the deer... they are definitely making good use of the cleared trails where Richard and Toby drove the tractor when they were getting firewood. I mentioned this to David & Kathie, and they asked if we had any groves of small evergreens. We do indeed have a nice little grove just north of the back yard... David thinks that is where the deer are bedding down and living. No deer near their house, but obviously we've got a good population living right around ours!
Forked Deer can be found in several resources including the Fakebook, the Portland Collection (blue book), and the Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes.
