Funny you made this thread. My hubby told me today I should ask ATS members the same question.
In one day we saw a herd of deer, 7 or 8 right at our front room window, a dozen elk and a huge bob cat. Bob cats are out here but we hardly ever see
them during the day.
A couple nights ago I turned on the porch light to look out and there's a raccoon looking at me through the window. In the twenty years we've lived
out here we've never seen raccoons ever. Badgers/wolverines/porcupines but never racoons. It's entirely too dry, I'm in southern Colorado btw.
My hubby's been seeing red racers, they usually make themselves pretty scarce.
It's been nonstop. We've always had antelope, coyotes, snakes etc. and we do live in the middle of nowhere but we never see this much wildlife.
There's far better grazing/water up higher. In the town nearest me the locals killed a mountain lion that wandered in.
The weather has been normal maybe a little warmer. We've had a little rain so the grazing is good but we've had wetter years with way fewer
There's really no new construction going on just a few mountain homes. Wilderness abounds there's really no reason for all these animals to be here,
this is cattle country. There's several fracking operations going on maybe that's disturbing them Idk something's off.
We're almost afraid to look out front at night...I draw the line at bigfoot or aliens. If I see them at my front window I'm afraid I'll have to
