Well, either that, or turkeys. This summer we had a couple of nice-sized toms but they vanished… I don’t mind wild turkey (smoked!) but given my choice I’ll take store-bought.
Yesterday we went out and, in patrolling the perimeter of our yard, I found one set of coyote tracks – following the turkeys. I know this summer I heard a whole bunch of them yipping and howling for a couple of nights while the pack was local.
