That is a big one Clint. Yup they sure can mess up your lawn.  Looks like a fine pup. I don't see any problem with the length of his legs.

I already have a mole hide in the freezer Bill.  I want to do some tanning this winter. 

Next time I might try to stick one with an arrow when I see it digging.

tis the season with those little SOB's. The last time I cleaned my yard up with the rider it was like riding on a roller coaster.

What did I do today: Just put the finishing touches up on 8 stone knives that I knapped and put handles on. Photo's later once my bride gets home to shrink them down for me.  Also starting to get ready for our winter trip to the S.W.

A few days ago when I was leaving the land in Tn I hunt after dark, an armadillo scurried across the road in front of me. Seeing as how I have had a long running war with these critters I swerved my truck and turned the armadillo into a road pizza.

As I drove to the land this evening I topped a little rise where I hit the armadillo and there were two mature bald eagles having a pizza dinner.

I drove right up to them, the first I have ever seen close up. They left the armadillo and flew about 15 yards away into a soybean field and just stood there looking at me. I was able to snap one picture out the window before my camera batteries died. I didn't know he was looking the other way when I took the picture but at least I got one picture.

Seeing eagles in south central Tn is very rare.

That's a cool picture.  I see them cruising above the river at work and near my house about once or twice a year.  They are cool birds.

Several years ago I put a coyote carcasse in the field at the end of my dead end road. Usually the hawks and seagulls clean them up. The first morning I went back to look I couldn't figure out what was there as I drove back. It ended up it was a very large bald eagle eating the carcasse. About thirty feet away was a hawk and about fifty feet away several sea gulls. You could see the picking order. Since then I've started putting the carcasse in the field right behind my barn. I have a pair that I see regularly now. This summer I had three hanging around. I do enjoy watching them. I think they were hunting for ground hogs.

Just a normal day; I made abut 4 qts of spaghetti sauce to freeze in one serving packs, I finished some arrows for my granddaughter, I cut up several blight killed red oaks in my woods. I have found removing them stops the blight from spreading. I sharpened all my chainsaw chains, I picked a bunch of spinach to drop of at the house of a pretty gal I know that I used to date.

I enjoyed the beautiful weather by spending all day in the woods.  I cut some osage and cut some new trails through our property.
