I've seen those vermin out in the farmers fields.
Saw more pheasants this year than in a bit; at that last year there seemed to be a bird drought , of any kind, seeing lots of song birds this year.

I'm finding all the raw meat I need in the chiller case at Walmart...

The few times I've gotten out for groundhogs so far there were a fair amount of deer browsing in the usual areas. Most years we don't see them untill the birthing has gotten well underway, or even been completed, but this one may be different.

Things were a bit sparse last season, so I can't wait to discover how this year plays out!

The one thing that I have noticed is that the wood ticks are worse than ever this year. I picked three of one of my bird dogs last night and we live in town! She hasn't been out in a weed patch in 2 weeks and these were freshly attatched ones!

45/70 fan - you got one that is all washed out. Too close or bad flash I think.
[SARCASM=OFF]

gpa&hisguns - use Permethrin (0.50% concentration - like the Army) to effective and swiftly KILL ticks (and mosquitos) that only need to crawl across treated clothes, brush, limbs, dog, etc. Florida cattlemen have been using it since the 50's (and decades before) on cattle in the prevention of deer ticks and screw worms. It won't hurt your dog either if used in moderation in accordance to the instructions.

Thanks, I am going to get some this afternoon. I was just going to soak the yard in gas and burn it to bare dirt but the wifey said "NOT"! The have tick and flea collars on the dogs and dribbled some of that Hartz stuff from the top of their heads to the middle of their backs but the ticks laughed at it.

The dogs will each get a Simparica Trio tablet once a month as well!

I have noticed more song birds this years. I wasn't sure if there were more songbirds or if I was just becoming more observant in my old age! One does tend to stop and smell the roses more when he gets older.

Really nice deer to watch.

I found a product, Hi-Yield 38, at the hardware store, available on line too, with 38% permethrin as its active ingredient. I cut it to 0.50% with tap water, one 16 oz. bottle of Hi-Yield makes 9.5 gallons @ 0.50% concentration, see pdf attached (anything about the pdf you do not understand, contact me), and spray it on my hunting clothes, the screens on the windows, the sills, the door jambs, the base boards, the garage floor, ant mounds, the front flower bed mulch (where I stumbled into a finding of termites and eradicated their sorry butts). The "tiny" concentrations in the pdf are Hi-Yield LABEL recommendations.
