Well, they're not deer tracks as I think most hunters
would like to see right now. They're simply Mourning
Dove tracks. A foursome were scrounging around the deck at my studio and when I approached them a whole flock flew up right in front of me. I don't think I've ever seen that many Mourning Doves together at once. But all I caught on film were the tracks they left behind.

Everyone is gearing up for the start of hunting season on Saturday and with the cold temps and light snow conditions are looking good. The DNR said that this is not a typical year in that there aren't as many around this year. So it may prove to be a bit more challenging.
Good luck and be safe out there.

Mark your calendars for Dec. 12, 2008 for our annual Christmas get together. It will be held at Holiday Acres where Cocktails will begin at 6:00 and Dinner will be served at 7:00. Reservations are appreciated and can be made by calling,
Joan McEnroe 715-362-4602 or
Jean Kilbane 715-369-1875

Please call no later than dec. 10th. The cost of the dinner will be $15.50. We would once again like to help out the Rhinelander Area Food Pantry so if you could bring canned goods or make a monetary donation that would be great. I’ll include the website if you have any questions.
Also don’t forget about our own website.
I have been trying to post some things of interest, and if you have something that’s post worthy, photos, ideas, thoughts, please let me know.

So get your Christmas spirit out, grab some cans from the cupboard, and come have a good time. Happy holidays!

Pelican Volunteer Fire Dept.

I recently added a new informative Link to the list. It's the site for the Pelican Volunteer Fire Dept. In some cases they may be more informative than the local paper! They have photos of all the incidents they go to as well as information about what makes up the Volunteer Fire Dept. The key word here is volunteer....all these folks give their time to attend to the needs of our township. If you would like to show your appreciation they have a fund drive every year to purchase the equipment they use, which in turn benefits our community. Give the site a visit and learn how you can help out.
