Porcupines: Moving Slow and Steady 

Posted on by Kathie Fife

Yesterday I came across some tracks that had me a little baffled. The deep, light, and fluffy snow made it challenging trying to find a clear outline of a foot. My first guess was opossum. And that guess was based on years of observing wildlife moving about in the same tract of land for more […]
