Bears/Packers effect, a nursing fawn, a lot more on pure gas and boats and a lot more acres about Illinois’ greatest tree are amongst the notes about Chicago outdoors.


Right here are notes about Chicago outdoors.


“I have a trail camera on my wife’s land in Wisconsin to watch for trespassers,’’ John Hull emailed. “Needless to say we get photographs of animals as properly. The enclosed series shocked me mainly because I believed a fawn would be weaned by August. The time stamp is about 1:20 a.m. so it is an infrared image. Believed you could like them. This duo likes to use this access road and spent a lot of time grazing in front of the camera.’’

Not positive what is the usual time for weaning, but I have observed fawns nursing on mid-winter backpacking trips when I was young. And I nonetheless discover evening trail camera pictures cool.

WOTW, the celebration of wild stories and pictures about Chicago outdoors, runs most weeks in the specific two-web page outdoors section in the Sun-Occasions Sports Saturday. Send nominations to @BowmanOutside on Twitter or Instagram, to Dale Bowman on Facebook or e-mail [email protected]
