Welcome to the Dirty Birch
Matchetts' little slice of the Wisconsin
Those damned elk got in my way again today (August 19,2010)!
We are in a spot check mode this week to make sure the moth
flight is all but complete, rechecking intermittent traps for any additional
moths before final take-down/count starts, which had me close to the same area I
saw the elk last week. While these bulls cannot hold a candle to the big boys
last week, they were still a treat to see...especially when you have "the
equipment" in tow!
This group was two bulls and two cows. Bulls are still
in full velvet. You'll notice the radio collars, which are use to study the herd
by the WI DNR and the University of Wisconsin. One bull has a collar and one
doesn't. Both cows are wearing a wire! I would love to have those frequencies to
be able to find them at will...lol
Here are two of the pictures I

Thanks for all the nice comments on the cell phone shots from
last week. While these new photos are not exactly professional quality, they are
much nicer than the shots from last week off the phone.
