    I think I may have a slight problem starting here. Me and the dog got a third possum this morning. Morgan ran his up a persimmon tree. I shot him out and he did the crunching. That's 3 in a week. Morgan's having a big time but I'm not. I just don't want those thing around.

    Yeah, I've been having a lot more varmints around this summer that normal. I blaim it on the drought. They are probably coming to the only green stuff around, my garden that I have watered.

    Three in a week sounds like Mama Possum may have recently weaned a brood and they are searching for their own territory. I had a spell with young raccoons earlier that I think was caused by that.

    More predators are because the fur prices went through the floor so no one is trapping any more so more animals
