Its been above freezing long enough for the dead Possum in my backyard to thaw and start smelling, so I moved him to the field way out back. It must be spring!

We have dead skunks on the roads. Seems like they are everywhere. Always makes me think of the song "Dead skunk in the middle of the road stinking to high heaven". Have to admit dead on the road is better than alive in my yard.

I killed four skunks the other day.  They were wandering up the road in single file.  I started knocking them down from the rear.  By the time number one realized that four, three, and two were not following along anymore, it was too late!

I took a dead one under the rear tire of my truck Saturday, funny thing is my dad (who  was in the passenger seat) didn't even feel the bump.

I'm told there is a opossum living under my shed all winter. I'm not sure what he has been eating. Do you run over those too, Ben?

You have not lived in Virginia long enough.  We just say possum down here.  We don't sing to them and say "Ohhhh possum!"

 

We had a bounty on coyotes here in VA a couple years back.  My neighbor was boogieing down the road in his little farm truck when he saw one trotting down the road in front of him.  The coyote couldn't find a way to get through the fence.  He told me he stomped the gas, rammed the coyote, and (since he was going to town anyway) chucked it in the bed of the truck and earned $75 at the county office!

Those who lived across the road from the carnage were indebted to me, too.  I bet they really had some nice things to say about me.

Yes, I know. The O is silent. I thought if you ran over them, they weren't good to eat.

The guys where I was at said there was still a $50 bounty.
