"Det finns några som kan leva utan naturens liv och andra som inte kan" Aldo Leopold (fritt översatt /rw)
texten i övrigt kommer jag inte att översätta

Watching wildlife has become a passion - hunting with my camera and spotting scope lends a different perspective to my relations whit the world around me.
Glad to see that the Watchable Wildlife program has (page 2)
designated special areas where I am likely to see animals. The Colorado Wildlife Viewing Guide I got from the state park bookstore has all the best sites marked. In the field, I am careful to respect the boundaries set property owners and by the animals themselves I could tell I was to close to grazing elk the other day when one spotted me and snorted. Tension sparked from one to the other until the whole herd was ready to run. From now on, I'll keep my distance and make as little noise as possible.

So many habitats hers - it's like a patchwork quilt decorated with many of the wildlife species fund in western Colorado

All sort of creatures slip silently through the landscape at dawn and twilight, the best times for viewing wildlife. I watch the meadows, roadsides, and watering places to see the greatest variety of birds, mammals, reptiles and other living things. When no animals are around, it gives me a chance to study the plants and weather patterns - there's always something to catch my interest. I've learned that photographing wildlife without a telephoto lens usually doesn't work well, but other than that this is a great activity that anyone can do without much equipment. In fact, just taking advantage of all my
(page 2) senses to be the bets approach I do like to carnie this notebook and a pencil - gives me a chance to make quick sketches, jot a few notes, and keep track of where and when I see what. And pocket-knife or tweezers let me pick apart an owl pellet or a fox scat to see where's been on the menu lately. Hard to remember to stay in the car - sometimes I'd like to get closer, but I know it's safer for me and the animals to use the car as an observation blind.

Text: Page 1: I often wonder about the effects of introducing certain fish species into a place they don't naturally occur. I know wildlife management agencies are very careful these days about moving. fish around. Sometimes other people introduce fish into a waterway without realizing the, actions, could destroy the fishery by bring in disease or disrupting the natural food.
Page 2:
Brown trout - best fishing is just after ice-off and in the fall, some 7 - 8 pound fish here.....
smallmouth bass - stocked in late 1960s, now reproducing naturally here, big ones are 2 - 3 pounds……
crayfish - natural food source for other species ……
rainbow trout - stocked by Division of Wildlife, grow up to 25 punds
Page 3
