Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.

Random Pics from the Back40
The grapes are looking great in the Back40.
Several post back I showed several persimmons that had been hit by the frost. I'm glad to say that they have bounced back with a new set of leaves and are looking very healthy.
The wild plum trees are loaded down with fruit. If the bear don't get them I'll enjoy some good eating.
I saw this beautiful box turtle the other morning as I was brushhoging in the Back40. It had some incredible patterns on its shell.
The vernal pond continues to hold water making it a magnet for birds and other wildlife.
A nest of bluebirds in the Orchard nestbox.
A nest of House Wrens in one of my Back40 nestboxes.
When I'm not brushhoging with "Chalmer", "Martha" is my mode of transportation to the Back40. Hope you all enjoy my random pics from the Back40.
