Because of the number of small lakes, creeks, and trout stream around Oxford, there’s a simpler, quieter way of living in the waterfront communities. Smaller fishing boats cruising around no wake lakes at their own speed dropping a line here and there for that largemouth and plentiful panfish. And yet there’s another type of life style still kicking around in the area; small farms slowly getting moved along by the corporate farm fields. But yet you can still find some folks frying up their own bacon, eggs and home grown garden vegetables before they jump in the car and go to a job that helps pays the bills.
The area offers plenty of opportunities for the outdoor photographer. Wisconsin Wildlife including Whitetail deer, eastern wild turkey and Sandhill cranes walk the fields in both the early morning & in the evening’s right before sunset. Waterfowl like Canadian Geese, Wood Ducks, Mallard Ducks, Great Blue Heron, forage for food along the shores of area creeks, lakes and small ponds. In the warmer spring, summer and fall months you can find an array of song birds at the feeders and flower beds with squirrels, chipmunks, butterflies, snakes, frogs and other little creatures scampering around as well. And if you’re into hiking public land you can always find a wide variety of wild flowers. The scene always changing as they are replaced with new different ones every couple weeks from spring until fall; sometimes from the last snowfall through the first frost!
