I tried the string trick. I think they ate it.

Those buggers really like my newly planted 6' cedars!

I also had to cut back some tall tree branches from my house as the raccoons were getting on my roof and clawed an 8" hole through my cedar shakes.

Our cat came home with a snake in it's mouth one day as well.

Oh well, when you live next to a forest, you have to expect those things.

Deer just love those cedar shrubs, I think it is like candy to them. Racoons can do alot of damage. I seen where they got in someones attic and they were hard to get rid of. Like you say wildlife are nice to look at but sometimes make bad neighbors.

At least she was standing so Les didn't have to fight her for the bench.

There was 1 goose that had nested and hatched out some goslings under the front porch before the cat came. The cat would let her come and go as she pleased, even after the young grew up and left.

Sometimes we'll come out onto the deck and there will be 6 deer in the yard. We scare them, they scare the crap out of us, leaping and bounding through the bushes and out of the yard. It's like a stampede of thundering hooves! They make a mess of my underground sprinkler heads and I have to repair 1 or 2 each spring.

I read that if you don't want the geese coming back next year coat the eggs with cooking oil. They will never hatch but the mother won't go through another mating cycle that year like she might if you just dispose of the eggs. I really don't like that idea much but around here they are getting out of control.

Lots of rabbit eggs in the woods behind our place. But they're all real small. And brown.

Some good post here, Les, this was taken last week in the garden. I watched as she left the apple tree and went through the garden to exit. Nothing touched. My back yard is nothing but forest, and a great deal of wildlife. I have wild turkeys daily. Love country living. Have had moose, as well as black bear. Not a hunter so they wonder around feeling safe, but there was a time, just not anymore.

They look delicious. A little turkey, bacon, lettuce and tomato. Or just bacon. I'm not picky.

No offense intended to my Texas deer hunting friends. But the further north ya go - the bigger them critters get.
You are right about that. But while the bodies are bigger the antlers seem to be smaller the farther north you go compared to South Texas 200+ Boone & Crockett ratings.
