    how do you dispose of a varmint like a fox, coon or opossum with out making a scene. every time i kill something with in 3 days i will have every black and turkey vulture within a 5 mile radius in my yard. i like that they clean up but having 20 vultures in your yard plus another 40 flying around it makes it kind of obvious something is going on. because i have about 12 black vultures eating a raccoon i seen near my chicken coop.

    Can you burn it? Or bury it?

    if you bury it, it will need be very deep or things like fox's and coyotes or dogs will just dig it up and the problem will still be there. burning it you will want to make sure wind isnt blowing towards your house or a neighbors house cause it will stink pretty bad.
    a midnight mission to take and leave in neighbors yars is kinda like watching a comedy on tv??? lol ;)

    I'd just let the buzzards eat it.
    If you have that many, it will be gone in a couple of hours anyway
