South Dakota Wildlife - 6 pics

11 posts in this topic

South Dakota is full of different kinds of wildlife. I didn't realize that I would see so many different critters. The whitetails were like ticks they were so thick and of course there were plenty of Antelope.

Sweet images, Mike. I like how that velvet buck looks like he's talking to you. I can see a cartoon bubble coming from his mouth with some snappy phrase. grin

Thanks Guys. Steve, he was probably telling my son to stop making donkey noises at him. The buck wouldn't look at me so my son started making these rediculous donkey noises at him. It worked and it was hilarious.

Paul, I shot these at Custer State Park. They're wild animals but they're pretty used to people so it wasn't too hard. They are all full frame shot from the car.

I like the 4th one. Something about the grass on his head is pretty cool.

I like these Mike, the first shot with the flies and the grass on the fourth one are cool.

Mike those are all good, I really like both the buck antelope don't get to see them until I travel out there in the fall, unlike the buck deer it looks like the antelope have their headgear already fully developed.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
