McCulloch Kjarvick Loop 9:00 AM; Washburn, WI
1.6 °C; Cloudy Started by switching out the SD cards on the trail cams. At a glance, some 33 recorded incidents on the Snapshot WI cam, and a number on mine, too. Tried to bushwhack to my neighbor Mike's plank across the Onion but was thwarted by high water in the wetland. A sheet of ice, bearing me in places was nevertheless of dubious quality. Not wanting to risk wet feet early on in my hike, I made for Hwy 13. The last steps, I walked along the Onion and found that I was able to cross Hwy 13 under the Onion River Bridge deck. A first, and nice to have an alternate way to cross this busy road. The rest was plain vanilla McCulloch to Kjarvick, a nice hike. Saw the farmer on Kjarvick with two guns under his arm, I guess deer season is almost upon us. Headed back to the Sioux on the RR grade to check on the beaver. Definitely more activity since I was here a couple of weeks ago. Likewise on our own stretch of beach, where a recently felled stem I saw yesterday had been removed by the flat-tailed perp.
