It is a big day at the mountain homestead! I officially installed internet (Cable net) in my tent this afternoon. Was a first for the technitians. lol
Currently its 1.5Mbps, however, I need to call the center and have their software bump it up to 12 based on my distance away from the main hub.
What does this mean for you other than the eccentric thought of it all? Im back online. I can comment on all of your great blogs, I can upload videos. More postings of my wild adventures. How I am surviving in winter etc.
Yesterday I was up at my neighbors, Kevin. He heard this shaking noise and realized it was his wire fence. Turns out that a 4 point buck had jumped over it but tripped. Snagged its front leg into one of the wires which twisted around as he fell down. He struggled for a while then laid there on its back with legs up in the air. Hanging by its one leg.
Kevin, His wife, and I went over. Kevin had some wire cutters. I had a blanket to toss over its head. Decided against the blanket when it started kicking. The wire was too thick for his cutters so he just loosened the twisted wire holding it to the post. After a few minutes of getting the wire off, the buck fell free, twisted up and ran like a bat out of hell. A run that looked to be fully healthy.
Good luck to it. IDK about it surviving. It did not break bone, but the wire pulled its hide back pretty far from its ankle to expose muscle. There was another gash a foot up his leg as well. Didnt look like muscle damage and it wasnt bleeding.
I suspect it wouldnt bleed to death and the lack of a broken leg.... My thought is whether it can lick the skin back together and infection.
If prey or infection doesn't get it.... Wow.
Anyhoot! Once again. Im back!
