But Hoot, there's no little flying, biting critters here in the winter. Ya might run into the occasional rabbit, or coyote, or even a black bear. But the mosquitoes, black flies, no-see-ems, horse flies, deer flies, and ticks are all gone 'til it gets warm again. Of course, there are some areas where you might see the tracks of that most crazed animal, the drunken snowmobilier. You have to watch out for them.
And the woods up here aren't easy to get through. They are choked with brush. Walking through the woods, especially along a stream, or in a swamp, can be a physical challenge. So if ya come up my way, I'll just have to show you the good places. And the last 2 weeks in July is when the wild blueberries are ripe.
