|WHITE TAIL DEER|
Of all the everyday blessings of life in Bayfield the greatest for us is the opportunity to see and interrelate with wildlife: birds and bears and deer and coyotes; even to hear a wolf occasionally if not to actually see one. One does not have to be a hunter or dedicated bird watcher or go to any great lengths to enjoy this simple pleasure. One is as likely to see wildlife on an evening drive or just sitting looking out the window as if one searches for it (although having a bird feeder and being an outdoors person certainly increases one's chances) but observing wildlife is literally as easy as watching TV, and a lot more interesting.
I no longer hunt or even go out of my way to fish much, but I enjoy and appreciate "All God's creatures, great and small," more than ever, and we will miss this Bayfield amenity perhaps more than any other, and will hope to find wildlife to appreciate in Texas.
