I’ve only enjoyed a few salmonberries and now the thimbleberries are coming on. I don’t know if these berries are any good for jams or jellies but their seeds are a lot smaller than salmon or black berries. They are almost like a strawberry seed. The berry is not slick like the other berries. It’s more like the skin of a peach. They are really tasty though. The thimbleberries are growing lower on my road so maybe I’ll stand a chance…unless elk eat them
Ranchers lose a lot to elk. He’s constantly repairing his fence.
I looked back at my photos from last year to see when I caught an elk calf and it wasn’t until mid-July. 😦
I’ll call him Kink – cuz he has a kink in one of his antlers. He’s pretty handsome, eh?
Do trophy hunters look for perfect symmetry or do they like a little uniqueness? I think uniqueness is more attractive.
BUT – they always look like they’re showing off their butts. hahaha
Now, what could be tasty in a pile of cow manure?
Oh! Do you see what I see?
Yup! There’s A-3! She’s the only tagged elk I see here in the Alsea River/Tidewater herd.
I look for her every time I see the elk.
