Well, There was one time where a Bear went into the chicken pen. So the chickens were running around in the yard. I went to see why. There was a bears back side sticking out of the open door. So I snuck up on him and gave him hell for eating the chicken food.
The bear never came back, I did scare the crap out of him. :D :D :D

A hobby farmer had about 80 chickens free ranging . One week he lost 15 chickens , he had seen a fox so he always carried a rifle with him. He shot 9 foxes in two weeks.



That's too bad,

We need to get another furry buddy. We've been trapping groundhogs that are dining in the high tunnel. I went up the road to let one out the other evening. I should have known he wouldn't go the way I intended. He took off out of the trap like a shot, down the hill, across the road and BONG! right into a gate  :D.

Oh let's see, lettuce and spinach are about finished up, the critters got the beans. 'Maters are climbing the strings. Peppers are set out, cukes and zuchs should be coming in for market this week. Nasturtiums which are a pretty flower and are yummy stuffed with cream cheese and pepper jelly, we have a hummingbird stuck in there tonite but set out some water and he has plenty of blooms so should be ok. Beets and carrots are in but will be a bit yet. There are peppers and maters outside as well but this is setting up to be a blight year. We had garlic scapes with rainbows and brookies the other night. Blueberries should be in in a few weeks, strawberries are coming in now, raspberries are a few weeks off yet. I wandered outside the tunnel for all of that last and prolly missed a few, Michelle grows stuff, I cut stuff down, but I do like to eat  ;D

I've seen a couple of foxes hit in the road the past few days, one had run alongside my truck earlier, there must have been a den too close to the road.

 A few days ago I went up into the woods where we had made a beam. I had left a ladder up there and went to retrieve it. We had kind of left that area alone when we saw a newborn fawn sleeping in our fresh laps. I had spotted mamma in there later so I knew there was still a nursery going on. Well when I went in bambi was chasing a squirrel and bouncing around carefree. She spotted me and came up within about 10 feet without a bit of fear, checked me out and then went bouncing off on the next adventure of the morning.
