MULE DEER DOE AT SALT LICK - AND A YOUNG BUCK RESTING NEAR BY we used to put out 2-3 salt blocks and 2-3 100lb bags of rock salt into a 4x4ft hole for the animals to lick on each year- we had white tail-mule deer -elk and moose use it some cow elk would spend a good hour licking the blocks or the dirt where the bagged salt was- the older animals first(peck order )
columbia ground squirrels - these rodents are about 10" long with a 5" tail can be easly tamed in a couple of minutes in camping areas (parks) in more remote wilderness area they are often heard but not seen- they will stand up and look the area over and if they see danger they let out a loud whistle similar to marmots- these rodents are found in the rocky mt area from 2000ft to 6.000 ft elevations -
