Moose crossing the 8th fairway after making a disappointing putt on the 9th green . . .

Missing the foxes in 2014, but this guy from last year had a nose for the ball.

A curious doe by the 3rd green.


Cows and deer communing together in nature . . . at dusk . . . on a summer evening . . . on and off the 3rd fairway
