Coyote Soup

Bringing life back to the family ranch with three young free range braves and lots of organic elbow grease.

A Sandy Creek Bank March 7, 2011

The creek at the ranch is vital to the abundant wildlife taking up residence in the area.

The proof is in the sand.

Here we have evidence of a little, ahem… young cowboy.

White-tailed deer.

Coon hound.

Raccoons.

And freshwater mussels.

Judging from this evidence, I’d say the young cowboy and his trusty coon hound, Daisy, were hot on the trail of a sneaky coon who happened to be lounging on the creek bank, stuffing his little cheeks with freshwater mussels while a deer watered nearby. Both completely unaware of the chaos that would ensue momentarily with the arrival of the young hunter and his hound dog.

Startled by the hound’s baying bark, the white-tail retreats into the woods with the raccoon’s ringed-tail not far behind. I then assume the young cowboy/hunter decided to wait patiently for their return near this old fallen tree.


At least that’s what I gathered. I’m sure my little, ahem… young cowboy/hunter has an entirely different story to tell.
