  1. At least the retention ponds are filling...
  2. The deer shit the most. Everything from piles of pellets to huge piles, both of which seem to turn into big clumps of weeds.
  3. Don't get me started on foxes. We've got a big rock out at the corner with a shit-ton of mulch around it. There's a pair, siblings? mates? that INSIST on digging foxholes in it and chase one another around the big rock. They leave a banked racetrack around it. Every week I refill the foxholes and the next night they're dug out again. I've sprayed deer away, sprinkled a ton of cayenne in the holes and on top after I refill, but they keep coming back. They've beat me down. I just leave the holes anymore. For some unknown reason they also insist on shitting in my driveway that I keep having to shovel up. They're worse than having a dog. Once I thought I saw a groundhog from the house run under the shed, so later I went out to check out the hole and something hissed at me from it, so I set the trap. Caught a huge racoon by the next day. It was the last time it hissed at anything. Another time I had something digging by the house, out came the trap. I don't know how this racoon fit in the trap it was so big! I don't know what I'd do if I caught a fox. They annoy me, but they also keep the other rodents in check.
  4. I got one a few years back. Threw a blanket over the thing and was able to pop open the door and ran!
  5. People out here hunt deer from their cars at night with spotlights. After the corn has been cut down, they just spot across the field and plunk a deer. You know it when you hear a gunshot at 10-11pm at night...
  6. Yeah, I've heard groundhogs will return from a ways away and relocating is illegal. If you don't want the pest, others probably don't want it either. Big, nuisance pests (groundhogs, raccoons, etc.) that nobody wants around here that end up in my trap I'll take care of. There are some cats that roam around that I hope keep the chipmunk, mice, etc. population down, so I leave them go also. Even though the rabbits eat the wife's plants, she won't let me plunk them.
  7. Depends upon the caliber and type of the ammo...
  8. Wabbit stew! They ate all the vegetables.... One good turn deserves another!
  9. Deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, groundhogs are why we have to have a deck garden in pots instead of a real one in thr ground and even then the squirrels and groundhogs sometimes come up to snack.
  10. "Knots in wood are formed when branches are broken off or cut, and the exposed wood is left behind. As the tree continues to grow, the trunk expands and overtakes the branches, and knots form around the base of the branches. Knots can also be formed by injuries to the tree or by fungal infections." They're what give knotty pine floors, furniture, etc. that distinctive look. I use a wedge and sledgehammer to split large logs instead of an axe. Just place the wedge in an existing crack that should be there in seasoned wood and hammer away. Once the big logs are split, I use this method with the axe for more exercise. I keep an old Y log around and place the log to be split in the V of the Y to hold it and keep it from rolling one way or the other.
  11. If you're on FakeBook, join the Bumping Big Sky group and you'll know when Blue bumpers are going to be there.
  12. Oh yeah, another fun time. If it weren't for making bumps, the place would get boring pretty quick.
