Deer get diseases, CWD may be the worst
The headlines keep coming, Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) keeps spreading. The one that maybe surprised me the most was the 155 cases detected in hunter-submitted samples from 5,000 deer shot in Arkansas this fall by the end of November. If you like percentages, that's 3%. Not good!

Shallow hibernators awoke during December warm-up
Winter has returned after a welcome warm-up in mid-December that lasted a couple of weeks. During that warm stretch some of our area hibernators that don't sleep so deep came out.
I first recognized it by my sense of smell one evening. Leaving for a basketball game in Worthington, the strong odor of skunk essence hit me as I stepped out the backdoor. Then, as I traveled Hwy. 60 southwest, I again picked up natures worst smell in the vicinity of Heron Lake as it easily entered the vent system of my Ford Explorer.
The skunks were out that night.
