Our neighbor, Eddie, shot a coyote a couple of days ago in the field across from our house.
A 300 yard shot in the dark (by moonlight)! He saved the tail and put it on the back of his ATV (above).
The other two he shot last year. Nice shooting Eddie!



Here is Eddie with some other recent kills.

Our most recent visitor.
Photo by Ed LeBlanc...our neighbor.

We live on an acre of land in North Pownal, Vermont. Throughout the year we have animal visitors. We have seen deer, fox, turkeys, coydogs, a huge snapping turtle, two bears, several cows and a bull. Today was the highlight of my life in Pownal. I was out in the back yard stacking wood this morning and caught movement. I turned and couldn't believe my eyes. There, walking through the back yard about 45 feet from me, was a huge Bull Moose. He made the back yard look so small. His rack of horns must have spread over 6 feet. His legs were as long as the height of the clothes line. I ran into the house to get my camera, but when I came back out he had gone into the woods.
