    I don't really take joy in any of it, except the possums, but when you have over 100 chickens in the country, backed up to the woods, critters are coming. The one that scares me the most is coyotes. I haven't had one yet, but we are starting to get more and more in the state. DNR will pay $25 for each carcass

    When we had our snowmobiles we'd run the trails in the woods. Quite often, we'd run across a deer carcass lost by a "hunter". The smell of a forest ripened deer carcass when cracked open by several hundred pounds of snow machine is unforgettable. It gets in your helmet and stays there...

    What about Bobcats? Or mountain lions? Last year I heard they were coming down from their Mt.s in search of food from farms

    It's more fun in a creek. Say the trap is 12" tall. You just find a section of creek that is 14" and you can watch [​IMG]
    Skunks kill chickens, too

    We don't have those so much here. Every once in a while I will see a bobcat, but have never seen one near the farm. I usually run across them riding the bike in the woods. I would have a hard time shooting a big cat. I think they are beautiful, but I would probably change my mind if one got in the pen
