    Hawg's Wildlife Adventure Thread!




    Last Saturday. There is six deer in this view of this pic. At least three more just off to the right.
    No bucks that I saw. One was no bigger than a jack rabbit. Kinda cool to see that any deer together all at once.

    One time I came across a Desert Tortoise on the trail at dusk. Had to hop over him to avoid a collision. Apparently they are a rare sight, I'm just glad i saw him. I couldn't imagine what I would have looked like if I'd have hit him.

    A coyote ran across the trail right in front of me today. That was interesting, especially since someone was riding with his dog just a bit farther down the trail. The dog spotted the coyote and gave chase, of course. A few weeks ago I saw a potato bug and it must have been the size of my palm. Gnarly. About all I got.

    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    ^^^That thing looks gross, reminds me of the Camel Spiders we have here in AZ. Keep in mind I've had/have some unique pets (scorpion, tarantula, python), but those things creep me out.

    I had a buck and a doe running in front of me on the trail
    today. I got about 20 feet from them before they moved off
    of the trail.

    Yes, he's certainly the weirdest of the bunch!

    Since he moved to So Cal, we actually ride together sometimes.

    Although this isn't the thread for it, because there's another one about "wildlife" you've seen, I really need to get my camera out more often. So far, since moving to the desert, I've seem:

    1) Desert Tortoise
    2) Tarantula
    3) Mojave Rattler
    4) Wild horses
    5) Wild ass
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I wondered where he got to. He was heading here and never made it.

    Most of those are contained to certain habitats in the u.s.a. Although wild ass can be found almost anywhere

    We spotted this big beaver near the river last week on a night ride

    He was eating apples that had fallen on the ground. He turned and walked away as we got closer. Glad he wasn't frothing

    One time I discovered a huge cricket in the back of my car. Unfortunately it had been crushed when I folded the seats down.

    Cool story.

    This wouldn't have happened if you had quit playing cricket.

    This beaver was probably tipsy from eating the fermented apples and just wanted to chill.

    Ha,ha lucky for you guy's. I saw a beaver about a month ago swimming in a pond. And he looked like all he had on his mind was "where's the next tree to chomp on".

    We've seen beavers at Lake Havasu several times. They are aggressive little beasts. Slapping their tails on the water and actually charging the boat to defend their territories. I think I mentioned this here once before but my Bro-in-law got bit on the thigh at Lake Powell by an angry beaver. His dog was tangling with a beaver and he went out in the water to get his dog away. The beaver swam over to him and bit him hard.

    I usually try to stay on the good side of my Beaver encounters. So with the grain as much as possible. Of course there's alway's going to be a slip or two during said encounter.

    Has anyone here ever eaten a beaver? I've heard of them referred to as "sweet beaver". I'm assuming that suggests that they have a good taste?

    Sugar coated goodness if you trap the right one.

    Short clip from my freezing cold ride this morning. Hope you can see the rabbit, it's small on the video. It crosses the wash at about 12/14 seconds and then is up and out the top left of the hill just a few seconds later with the slow coyote following behind.

    Great video B&F but I don't think rabbits qualify for wildlife.
    I could film several in my front lawn every morning.

    The coyote chasing the rabbit was what I was considering "wildlife"...

    The 'yote was right on the trail in front of me when I stopped the bike. Even after the rabbit ran off, the 'yote just hung around. Maybe waiting to see if I had some beef jerkey or something for him... Those things around here are smart. The ones we see on the lake walk the shoreline with us waiting for us to catch a fish and toss it to them.

    Oh, and it was a pretty big jack rabbit, not just some fluffy cotton tail. Does that make it any better?? HA HA.

    I know, it's small and hard to see with the 'fish eye' on the goPro. They were really close to me though... I guess you just had to be there.

    And you don't indulge on rabbit stew regularly, considering the natural resources?

    B&F, don't listen to DJ, he's whack.

    Yes if it was HUGE you get a pass.
    And yes I concur I'm whack, but the first step is,admitting it.

    About a month ago, my buddy and I were riding a single track trail around one of our local lakes. I had to stop for a quick GU break so were standing over our bikes talking when I noticed about 20 yards off behind my friend, there was a big ol' Bobcat hunched over. At first we thought he was using the litter box. His back was turned towards us and he was extremely nervous that we were there as he kept turning and looking over his shoulder at us and then back at something in front of him. I turned my cell phone video on but it's crap, everything looks too far away. I was surprised kitty stayed there as they usually make themselves very scarce around people. All of a sudden he started posturing like a kitty does when they're gonna pounce...then BAM!...he dove and shoved one of his front legs all the way into a hole and popped the rich, chewy goodness of a big fat gopher into his mouth, looked at us and bailed the hell out there!

    First time I have ever seen a wild kitty on the hunt like that and we were there to see it all go down. Very cool!
