That was my plan too. Its burrow would then be corrupted for the next year or two so no new chucks would move in. The burrow seems to be the basement of my neighbor's vacant tear-down.

So it doesn't matter what kind of flies it attracts.

I'd be really worried about that bullet going places it shouldn't go. What if it hits a rock or some such?

Have you tried trapping it?

This one is wily and trap resistant. My shot angle is rather steep since I am in a second story. The neighborhood is empty during the woodchuck visiting hours, between the vacant houses and the distances betweeen them and the people off at work, we are pretty much in a ghost town. Also there are not many rocks downrange. Besides, I am just pretending. I would never really do this.

I'm pissed off. My blueberry bushes have been in the ground for 3 days. 3 days! And something tall has already nibbled all the leaves off the top of one of the plants. It's almost bare. I doubt it will make it. The roots aren't established.

So I just fenced them in and threw a net over the top. I planned to do that this weekend, but I was just out there in the dark doing it. Seriously? 3 days?

My wife and both kids have each seen deer on this block, so I bet it was a damn deer. I can't believe I have to worry about deer here.

Deer suck, and between them and the rabbits, you'd better get some hardware cloth or chicken wire. Seriously.

Just out of curiosity are the blueberry bushes in your line of sight from the second floor?

This much trouble to nail a goddamn rodent? No wonder it took you guys ten years to get Osama.

Hmm, maybe you should send in a SEAL team.

Penny is growing well and the strawbs are coming on.
As per my video, I know she won't fruit this year (all the cherry trees I pass on the way to school are already showing green fruit) but she's put on such a spurt I'm wondering if next year might be feasible.

And the strawberries are really loving this weather!
I went out to water the garden tonight - clouds/ sunshine today but no rain.

Yes I know what we have is barely a patio by US standards, but if I get any fruit this year I'll be made up.

Any update on the straw bale growing method?

The garden will soon be safe for democracy!

Sighted in my scope today. Groups of three. 100'
First round was way off.
Second round over compensated.
Third round close enough for now. I think all the years of photography have paid off.

Be DAMN SURE of yer Back stop ( where the bullet will hit )
and Fuck the gut shots , that's WAAAAAAAAAAAAY In Humane !!!
Head shot will drop him in his tracks
Good choice on the Marlin , yer white trash rating just stepped up to pearl

And Most importently do you keep it LOCKED when Not on use ?? and in a Locked location ???
