I moved the calves to a fresh paddock yesterday morning. One of the little stinkers respected the fence so much that he refused to go through the opening.
I ran a line of cracked corn across where the fence had been. When he got to the end of the line he was with his buddies. Just like magic.
I restrung that end of the fence and turned it back on.
The suckers might have been running in this creek but they were not biting my worm. I will try again tonight.
I was talking to a local who is in his early 40s. He commented that he remembered when he and his buddies walked up-and-down this creek with their bows trying to shoot the suckers. Suckers are slender fish, so I am sure they didn't hit many.
The area is more built up now. There are more ordinances. I am sure it would be impossible for kids to do that now. Folks would call the cops.
Today is "dig up chestnut tree and move it" day.
I am trying to figure out how long I can put off planting pecans and acorns. The sooner I put them in the ground the more I will lose to squirrels.
