Apple Tree Feeding Station for Wildlife

Our Alsea River neighbors have told us about a cougar in the area.  They stalk elk and deer; which we see lots of.  Some have actually seen the cougar at dusk or dawn as they drive.

We are generally not driving at that time of day so we were very excited to catch this one wandering past our game camera like he owned the place.

I had no idea our apple tree would be a feeding station for so much wildlife!  We eat what is edible.  Deer and elk eat what they can reach or off the ground.  Mama bear sends cubs up the tree to eat and drop some for her.  Cougars stalk deer and elk at the apple tree feeding station?

We haven’t found a kill under our apple tree….yet.
