Instead of cutting off our good firewood splitting it up, so you can't actually see the sauna section. The sauna section the snow is way more melted, which I expected this actually coals in here. Still from last night, [ Applause, ], [ Applause ].

He's, a runner, [ Music, ], [ Applause, ], okay, she'll, be doing this. Never seen me do that, but you're eating the fast way you might want it today. All I wanted to do was be in the forest, like it: [, Music, ], [, Music, ]! Thank you.

What is it mystery? Hmm, it's, really good, actually squirrel girls good morning. Well, as you can see it's snowing again, I've. Had a rough couple of a few days of weather here got really warm six degrees Celsius and rain, and then that turned a freezing rain for like a day and a half.

And then we got a lot of snow about a foot and it's still coming down, actually so the conditions and a lot of ton of wind actually too. So we got a lot of drifting really deep spots and spots, so it's been tough getting around.

But when I let Kelly out this morning that comes back to the cabin with this, I had no idea what it was at for it. Well till I got it off of her: it's, deer hair. So what's happening? I guess with this weather change is that first of all, I've had a lot less snow than normal, a lot warmer.

So far this winter, so the deer that normally move into the yard. I think a lot of them were staying back into their typical Arthur. They're, a normal home range, and now, with this this room, this weather, this change in weather, is triggered them to head back up to the yard if they had left it or they hadn't been there.

Yet yards are a great big areas of favorable habitat for winter habitat so, where there's, food and shelter, the deer really congregate in those areas. So there can be thousands of deer all in one area and then not enough.

Most of the rest of them the surrounding province. So anyway, what's happening is that they'd funnel through near the cabin. I was this heavy trail I'll. Show it to you just off to my right here: heavy deer trail and then a dead deer on that trail and a whole bunch of I guess they're wolf tracks.

It's hard to tell because a lot of snow is coming down and she started running around them too, but some clear Fox tracks as well and I'm sure there's. Gon na be some other animals on that, so that looks like it probably about the amount of food that's or meat.

That's gone from the deer and imagine it happened, probably in the middle of the night cuz. Not that much going and I'm, not sure that the Wolves, didn't. Take that deer down and continue on it and and keep hunting because they didn't consume that deer.

Typically, when wolves take a deer down, they sit on that and they eat it. Our it like in one night I've, seen them do that, so it could be that they killed it or injured it and moved on, and then something else came to feed on it like this Fox at it.

Like you said this Fox tracks. There, anyway, what I'm gonna do is put out a couple of trail cameras and see. If I can see exactly what's, feeding on it, I think with the amount of activity or Kali and my wife and I walking around and our scent near the cabin.

I would imagine the wolves are probably not going to come back and feed on it and all the other predators. What's typical, probably Martin Fisher and Fox, for sure that's, probably all that's. Gon na feed on it that'll be evening, and then, during the day I'm sure the Ravens and maybe bald eagle, will find as well Ravens Blue Jays, maybe the odd gray jay anyway.

I'm gonna put the trail cameras. I'll, put two Oh from two different angles and see what we see so, hopefully, the rest of this video is showing you some of the footage from that. Ironically, this is exactly where a deer was taken down about probably 50 yards from where a deer was taken down at this time last year as well, and this is some of the footage from that.

I found it because a bald eagle flew off of that during the day and then a bunch of Ravens and Fox came in a fed on it until it was gone pretty quickly. Actually so let's, see what see what capture on the trail cameras some of the animals are gonna.

Well, they're, all not the birds necessarily but the animals they're gonna smell this and want to avoid it or a little bit curiously coming right up to the camera and smell it. If it was a bear, would tear the camera off the tree likely tell you don't, wolves will be nervous and it might even like, I said scare them right out of here.

If that's, the case at all, we're gonna catch, it's, probably Fox, and maybe birds, maybe Marten or Fisher. There's, lots of them around yeah they get out of there pup. I think she's all excited because of all the activity.

Here there's. Deer tracks running all through here I don't know. If I can show you it. Basically they, when they're running, they bound so just set of four prints right here and the next ones like next ones like ten feet up.

So you're running through here and there's. The several different spots like that were they're running, so the Wolves must have pushed them up out of the valley here up across this hemlock ridge and up and over and took that one down there like, I said, I think they probably hamstrung That one by the looks of it, so they grabbed it by the haunch and pull it down or or or at least injure it.

So it can't run and then it probably died there and they probably kept going and killed another deer further down the valley and down over the ridge or something I'm gonna. Take a look around see if I can find something else, but pretty interesting.

This is this is Canada. This is harsh nature. This is what happens in the winter, though this is when the wolf pack really feeds at this time of year when the deer are more vulnerable. So I talked about the weather with that freezing rain and ice pellets and everything before the snow came.

What happens is the there's, a little bit of snow that was on the ground before the ice? That gets a hard crust on it, and then you get all this snow on top. So what happens often is that the bigger animals that are especially the hoofed animals they tend to break through that crust and then the dogs, the canines and some of the other animals, the cats.

They can stay on top of that snow. So they can run fine and the deer can't. The prey can't, so they end up having an easy time killing food at this time here. So they do really well and then much more difficult to catch game in the summer time for them, so that's.

What's happening there'll, be a lot of winter, kill, mostly away from the cabin it's unusual that they're still right here by the cabin this time of year, but it did happen again. Last year as well so who knows? Maybe it is a pattern I've only been here for three years interesting.

I really find this stuff interesting yeah. I'm gonna keep looking around, follow these two deer trails and see. If I can find evidence of exactly how many wolves, if that's, what it was or whether it was coyotes or what it was anyway, that's, life [, Music, ], [, Music, ], (, dramatic music, ) ( match snapping ) ( metal, clanking, ), ( metal, clanging, ), ( rain, falling ), ( snow crunching, ), (, wood, clanking, ), ( footsteps, falling ), ( water gushing, ), (, snow crunching, ), ( door, creaking ), (, Shawn, mumbles, ), (, bell, clangs, ), (, snow, crunching, ), (, Snow scraping ), ( wood, cracking ), ( wood, cracking ), (, snow crunching, ), (, wood, clanking, ), (, snow crunching, ), ( door, creaking ), ( woman, whistles ) (, snow crunching, ), (, snow crunching, ), (, twigs, snapping, ), (, wind rumbling, ) ( boots, Scraping ) ( dog panting, ) ( bucket clanging, ), ( water, pouring ), ( water sloshing ), [, Shawn ].

Every time we go on a walk. We should collect a bunch of twigs in a backpack. Even just for, instead of cutting up our good firewood splitting it up., So you can actually see the sauna section. See the what [ Shawn ] The sauna section.

The snow is way more melted, which I expected.. Oh really ( shovel scraping ) ( snow crunching, ) [ Shawn ]. There's actually coals in here. Still from last night. ( snow crunching, ), ( shovel, scraping ), ( hammer, thudding ).

She's: a runner. ( woman, laughs, ) ( shovel, scraping ) ( door, creaking ), Hey little pup. ( vest zipping ) (, pan sizzling ). Okay, shall we Serve [ Woman ] Yeah.? Can I have a spoon Not doing this on this one? Yeah you ever seen me do that When you're eating big pasta, you might --.

Where's, my knife, You might want it today.. All I want to do is be in the forest like in a cave. What's? The difference? ( knocking ), Perfect. (, scraping ) Thank you.. You're welcome.. What is it [, Woman, ] Mystery.

? It's, really good. Actually. Thank you., Spoiled girls. Paw paw Thank you. ( bird cawing ). Good morning.: Well, as you can see it's, snowing again., We've, had a rough couple of well a few days of weather.

Here. Got really warm six degrees celsius and rain, and then that turned to freezing rain for like a day and a half. And then we got a lot of snow about a foot and it's still coming down actually.. So the conditions and a ton of wind actually too so we got a lot of drifting really deep spots in spots, so it's been tough, getting around.

. But when I let Cali out this morning, she comes back to the cabin with this.. I had no idea what it was at first well'til. I got it off of her.. It's, deer hair. So what's happening? I guess with this weather change is that first of all, we've, had a lot less snow than normal, a lot warmer so far, this winter, so the deer that normally move into the yard.

I think a lot of them were staying back into their normal home range and now, with this weather, this changing weather it's, triggered them to head back up to the yard if they had left or they hadn't been there.

Yet. Yards are great big areas of favorable habitat for winter habitats, so, where there's, food and shelter, the deer really congregate in those areas.. So there can be thousands of deer all in one area and then none in most of the rest of the surrounding province.

. So anyway, what's happening is that they'd funnel through near the cabin this heavy trail. I'll, show it to you just off to my right here: heavy deer trail and then a dead deer on that trail and a whole bunch of I guess they're wolf tracks.

It's hard to tell'cause a lot of snow's coming down and she started running around them too., But some clear fox tracks as well, and I'm sure there's. Gon na be some other animals on that.. So that looks like it, probably by the amount of food or meat that's gone from the deer.

I imagine it happened. Probably in the middle of the night'cause it's, not that much gone, and I'm, not sure that the wolves, didn't. Take that deer down and continue on into and keep hunting because they didn't consume that deer.

. Typically, when wolves take a deer down, they sit on that and they eat it. Devour it like. In one night I've seen them do that., So it could be that they killed it or injured it. It moved on and then something else came to feed on it like this fox that, like I said there's fox tracks, there.

Anyway. What I'm gonna do is put out a couple of trail cameras and see. If I can see exactly what's, feeding on it., I think with the amount of activity Cali and my wife and I walking around and our scent near the cabin.

I would imagine the wolves are probably not gonna come back and feed on it and all the other predators.. What's typical, probably marten, fisher and fox for sure.? That's, probably all that's. Gon na feed on it that'll be evening, and then, during the day I'm sure the ravens and maybe bald eagle, will find it as well.

Ravens and blue jays. Maybe the odd gray jay. Anyway, I'm gonna put the trail cameras out., I'll, put two out from two different angles and see what we see so. Hopefully, the rest of this video is showing you some of the footage from that.

. Ironically, this is exactly where our deer was taken down about probably 50 yards from where a deer was taken down at this time last year as well., And this is some of the footage from that.. I found it because a bald eagle flew off of that during the day and then a bunch of ravens and fox came in and fed on it until it was gone, pretty quickly, actually.

. So let's, see what we capture on the trail. Cameras. ( snow crunching, ), ( bird cawing, ) (, blowing ). Some of the animals are gonna. Well, they're, all not the birds necessarily, but the animals are gonna smell this and want to avoid it.

Or they'll. Be curious and come right up to the camera and smell it.. If it was a bear, it would tear the camera off the tree. Likely. Cali don't. Wolves'll, be nervous and it might even like, I said, scare them right out of here.

. If that's the case, then all we're gonna catch is probably fox and maybe birds., Maybe a marten or fisher. There's, lots of them around. Cali, get out of there. Pup. ( snow, crunching, ), (, wind, rustling ).

I think she's. All excited'cause of all the activity. Here. There's, deer tracks running all through here.. I don't know. If I can show you, but basically they when they're running, they bound so set of four prints right here then the next one's like ten feet up, so they're running through here and there's several different spots like that, where they're running.

, So the wolves must have pushed them up out of the valley here up across this hemlock ridge and up and over and took that one down there. Like I said, I think they probably Hamstrung that one by the looks of it so they grab it by the haunch and pull it down or or at least injure it.

So it can't run and then it probably died there and they probably kept going and killed another deer further down the valley or down over the ridge or something.. I'm gonna take a look around see if I can find something else, but pretty interesting.

This is Canada. This is harsh nature.. This is what happens in the winter.. This is when the wolf pack really feeds at this time of year when the deer are more vulnerable.. So I talked about the weather with that freezing rain and ice pellets and everything before the snow came.

, So that's. What's? Happening. There'll, be a lot of winter, kill, mostly away from the cabin.. It's unusual that they're still right here by the cabin this time of year, but it did happen again last year as well.

So, who knows, maybe it is a pattern.. I've only been here for three years. Interesting. I really find this stuff interesting. Yeah. I'm gonna keep looking around, follow these deer trails and see if I can find evidence of exactly how many wolves, if that's, what it was or whether it was coyotes or what it was.

Anyway, that'S life. ( snow crunching, ), ( bird chirping, ), (, dramatic music, ), (, wolf, howls, )
