    Last week there were four bears sniffing around the coop (posted about it here):

    Last night a red fox was trying to get into it. Seems like every time I fell asleep, the chickens and dog went nuts. I got glimpses of it twice, but couldn't get a shot.

    I have an arsenal next to the bed: Electronic hearing protecters, flashlight, 12 gauge loaded with birdshot to pepper a bear's butt, and a .22 with an aimpoint sight and a suppressor in case it's the fox. This is war.

    I live in NH, too. Good luck in your battle with the beasties. It's an ongoing one here in the sticks.[​IMG]
