I have a sow and cub hanging around for the last few days. She had tried to get to my bees.

 

  

  

  

  

 

The marks are about 6˝' off the ground. I put more screws in the wood where she was pulling on. The other day she was in the green house. :D :D By the time I got the kodak she was gone.

     I like bears. The older I get, the more I just enjoy watching critters and letting them be. When I was younger I was always looking for a reason to hunt and shoot everything.

I've been having one of them come to my bird feeders. Well only bird feeder now,I only have one.  The bear smashed the other one. I've been bringing the feeder in each night.

I had a visitor, too. Yes, I still had a birdfeeder out. It's 20 feet off the ground and I blocked off the porch stairs but I guess bears really do have a keen nose because it finally left when I put the feeder indoors and started my diesel truck.
Throwing rocks and milk crates and yelling 'bad bear' hadn't worked  :D
I even fired a round from my 380 in another direction…hurt my ears !
Wish I'd gotten a picture of it falling out of the hemlock tree which made quite a racket since there is still metal porkypine guards on that tree !!

I think you need those air horns in a small can but I'd they want birdseed then they get birdseed

Nice pic, The first one with the face [who me, your talking to me] look  :D :D :D
My feeders are out too , 6' from the ground. I'm sitting here with the window open and I can hear 3 of them hooting back and forth.

 

 


Ann and I just love the wildlife in the yard. We even had a woodchuck running around the yard today Trying to hide behind a dandelion.  :D :D :D

Nice owl picture. Looks like it's on a shepherd's hook? Probably close to the house.
I don't hear or see many owls. Last one I saw must of been 20 years ago. I was showing Brenda the property lines and one kept landing and flying in front of us.

It was Cfarm, We have a bunch here I think it's because Ann and I feed so many things It's good eating for a lot of animals here.  :D :D :D  They do keep each other in check so no one animal get's to many ahead if you know what I mean.
Like the woodchuck Mr Fox will find him, And maybe I can get a pic of Mr Fox.


Ann is getting a lot better , How are you and your honey doing?

Glad to hear Ann is doing better.  ;D
Brenda is doing fine. As long as she don't rototill the whole garden in one day.  ::) She thinks she can go from 0 to 50mph all at once. Than she fell a couple times. One real bad one. You know,the one where there is nothing but air around you and you are straight out and than the ground catches up with ya.  :o
