I do know what you mean Bill. She was fond of seeing the deer in the back yard too until they started nipping at the fig trees buds. They were off the list real quick then too.
As for the turkeys, I have a real nice Turkey frier...that is where I prefer my turkeys.
It was bad enough that the coons got all of our sweet corn last year; my nephew tells me how fond of racoons he is too. So, I agree to trap them and release.
Of course, grounds hogs...that is another story altogether. My nephew asks me, what is that 50 gallon drum doing next to the trap? And he says, why is it filled with water....The golden
finches like to have a drink out of the barrel of course.
