Seeing orange

Handsome. ‘Nuff said.

The invasion of the hunters commenced yesterday – but they were here days before, setting up camps and scouting stuff, cruising up and down the roads in their trucks and ATVs and UTVs. Kudos to the one guy we saw walking. Thankfully, they seem to behave themselves, but to say it’s a slightly stressful time of year would be a huge underestimation.

Be safe out there.

We are bracing ourselves as this two week rifle season commences. We’re heading out to Spring Creek Basin tomorrow to visit “our” mustangs, so we’ll keep our eyes on things for awhile!

Thanks! If you see a (very dirty) black Jeep Grand Cherokee, stop and say hi!

Do the horses retreat like the deer or antelope? Or do they remain in their territory? Any idea how many are killed or injured during hunting season?

There’s nowhere for them to retreat TO; they’re fenced into Spring Creek Basin Herd Management Area. Fortunately, we haven’t had any hunting-related injuries since I’ve been involved, but the increased traffic – 10 observed vehicles during just an hour-and-a-half-visit the first day of third season vs. one vehicle (mine) the other 51 weeks of the year?! – disturbs the horses noticeably.
