The white-tailed deer population is healthy and you're sure to see some in the morning and evening browsing near the cabins.
This past winter, there were more bobcat sightings then anyone can remember. You may hear one scream at night. Coyotes are also heard at night but seldom seen. Hiking our woods you will most likely see gray, fox and red squirrels.
The most exciting new animals that we saw this winter are the fishers. They are in the weasel family, but are about the size of a fox, are mostly jet black, and are very beautiful. A mating pair was first seen in February of '04, and the male has been seen numerous times hunting alone. We hope they have some kits in a den tree. Fishers were extirpated in Ohio in the 1850's due to over-hunting and loss of habitat, so we're glad they are back as a native predator species. Fishers were re-introduced to West Virginia with Canadian breeding stock in 1969 and in Pennsylvania in the 1990's so ours may have come west across the Ohio River. Welcome back!
None of the above animals are dangerous to humans and will do everything to avoid contact with you.
