Back to the den in the woods.

The frozen ground has finally made it possible to safely walk around the den site (Daisey's Den)across the water without the fear of caving it in. So I got one of the coon cams set up over there the other night.
One of the first familiar faces was none other than Popeye!! Haven't seen him in a while and it's great to see he's doing so well! He's a big fatty now!
Button is there too! Seems to be quite a mix of coonies hanging out in there.....some of the old, some of the new, some of the juveniles, and even some big scrappy males.

I had the camera out there for 3 nights....but thanks to the curiosity of this coon....

....and the decision to play with his new toy, the camera was repositioned away from the activity of the den, thus not many photos.

We can thank the little bugger for one thing at least, the new angle gave us a great shot of a red fox in the area that night! I think he looks a little gimpy though, but unfortunately there weren't any more clips of him to be able to tell for sure.
