Judging by the prices I've seen, he probably gets them at a bank vault, and has them delivered by armored truck!

I don’t know what’s going to get the garden first dry weather or the deer, I put the spot light on the garden last night 6 deer laying about 10 feet from the electric fence. We have to many of the dang things I keep telling people that we need to start taking out some of the doe but they won’t listen to an old man that has harvested many many deer in is almost 65 years on this earth. I am going to round up a bunch of young kids this year to hunt my place but they have to fill there doe tags before they take a buck unless it’s sure enough a monster I wouldn’t want a kid to miss out on a trophy

That is the best thing you can do. There are too many amateur wildlife biologists that think the secret to good deer is to save all the does. After a while the bucks look like cows but are old enough to draw social security and so inbred their eyes are crossed. We were over-run with deer in the 80s and early 90s because of that reason. My dad finally quit cooperating with the local hunting club yahoos and opened the farm up to hunters that wanted meat rather than horns and it made a huge difference. The emergence of coyotes (don't get me started on that one) while undesirable in the grand scheme of things helped too. Now if we could get rid of the coyotes and the bears.....

Had a big cat sighting on the farm a couple years ago. I don't exactly know what he was, but he wasn't a bobcat.....
A friend caught an glimpse of a big, black cat out in the woods a few years ago. Wildlife Commission will vehemently deny anything like that is around here but you know.....they also insist they had nothing to do with the beavers released around here either!

We’ve had over 5” of rain over the past week and a half but it was so dry it soaked up quick. Was able to cultivate today with no stickiness in red land.

That's not a garden, that's a farm! Man, I love digging up our horseradish every November and jarring it up.

That garden is a lot more back pain than I could stand.
I have an excuse. CRS.
