      I noticed goslings at my golf course this summer growing from hatchlings to near adult size in just two weeks. Maybe I’ve just never paid attention before, but Global Warming is a better explanation.

      No, those long-legged rats do grow very fast. And they will devour a garden over night.

      I think the look better in my freezer than my yard…

      With time fawns will grow slower, since the cullers have become extinct for some reason.

    In southern MN, there were no deer or nesting Canada Geese here when I was young, Now, deer 30 feet away simply stop and stare, and one has to walk slowly not to slip on the goose droppings.

    Annual deer cull here on the mountain. This is what freezers are for.

    Just be careful driving at night on the 108 and 32. More deer in Columbia means more auto collisions with deer around Columbia, and that can ruin a nice evening.
