Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Smile Turkey dinner was just here.

I got to get a camera and learn how to post picts. on this new computer.
Out front to my mailbox and a dozen turkeys literally walked up to me like 3 feet away obviously looking for a snack. I have to get some corn and feed them their here every day.
Bobcat lays across the road and grabs the squirrels when they stop in the road.
Manatees off my dock once a week. bears hit the trash morning and night.
Owls hawks eagles otters I live in a frigging zoo.

Previous neighbors had dogs and the animals shied away. Now they moved and everything moved back in. Deer stay a few lots away but its like these critters don't sense danger and walk about like they own the place.
Turkeys are the funniest hell they walk right up to yah looking for food.

Years ago we had one someone had for a pet cruising the neighborhood. I only saw it once and they took it to a zoo or farm or somewhere?

Had a pair of them wandering the neighborhood. I talked to their owners and asked them to keep them penned up, very nicely. Other neighbors also asked them.

Then one day they were gone, and never seen again. I’ve heard peafowl are good eating, kind of like pheasant.

We have some peacocks around here too, I guess folks had them as pets and either got tired of feeding them or moved out and the birds stayed behind. There is also a colony of blue and gold macaws that fly by my house every day twice a day, west in the morning, east in late afternoon, I guess they were left behind after Parrot Jungle moved from South Miami or maybe they didn't like the new place. Parrots, there are a million of them, the Florida Quaker parrot, noisy little things, they build family condos, about 50 or 60 living together on top of antennae all over

Up here in North Florida, we have the deer & turkeys galore, but no parrots & the manatee are too big to get this far up the river when it is low. The turkey & deer stay away from everybody as they are heavily hunted. The gal next door feed them all, so she has a yard full of everything passing thru.

Several years ago, a small juvenile male peacock showed up after living with the turkey for the first part of his life. As he got bigger, he became a problem getting on peoples cars & trucks, crapping on the decks & being a nuisance. He would get on my roof & scream for hours & crap all over the A/C , so I learned to chase him off with a R/C drone as he hated that thing. He is still around, but avoids me like the plague.

I'm glad we don't have some of the critters you have down there, here in rural southwest Pennsylvania it's mainly turkey, deer, rabbits, bear, coyotes and bobcats.

There's a few other things that's showed up in the last few years that are interesting, mountain lions which the game commission denies but have been seen on game cams around here.

The new one a few weeks back... bald eagle, saw it snitch a bunny up on my road. Adult plumage and I'm guessing a 5-5 1/2 foot wingspan, about 100 yards from where it snitched the bunny up is a sportsman club pond well stocked with fish, maybe that's why it's hanging around.

oops, almost forgot we do have poisonous snakes. mainly copperhead and a few eastern diamond back rattlesnakes down on the mountain about 10 miles away.

Interesting did not think you had Diamond Backs that far up their bill. Oh my God we got us huge friggers down here. Guy brought a dead on in the bar a bit back he killed wanted to sell I thought it was a frigging boa constrictor.
Just bought 50lbs. of corn and laying mash going to put it on the front lawn and have Lee set up the game cameras. The bears here are almost tame my Irish luck a turkey will rip my face up.
