Feeding the Deer in Hulbert, MI

Last week our son called from Colorado to say he needed to be in Virginia on Monday (for his job) but wanted to fly into the Chippewa County International Airport and spend Friday night through Sunday afternoon with us.


So on Saturday we took him to Hulbert to see the Whitetail deer that come in to feed during the winter months (after the hunting season is over).

We had a warmer than normal fall and early winter so some of the bucks still haven't shed their horns like the two big boys above.

The deer love the sugar beets and hay, but especially love the corn that gets put in the trough. Above Steve and our son are helping Nancy out by filling the trough.

The deer watch from a safe distance away until the guys go back into the restaurant (The Happy Hour).

And then slowly, one by one, the does, as well as one of the bucks, come in to savor the treat!

Speaking of a treat, we received one, too. On Sunday morning our son found out his flight was cancelled and he and some of his coworkers could not fly into Washington DC until yesterday, Wednesday, afternoon, due to last weekend's east coast blizzard.

Double Yay! So we had three extra days to goof off! 

I have more deer pics that I will sort through and share very soon.
