I maintain a year long battle with *****, and an occasional Fox and Bobcat, getting in to my hen house. In the last month I've trapped 7 - two adults and a litter of five youngsters. The last youngster just walked in before dark while I was in there setting my traps. The nice Spring rains must have been kind for the varmint population. I guess the snares need to be set for the Coyotes. Too early and hot to be messing with the hog population - next month, and then the fun begins.
