Don't know where to post this-so gonna try here. The powers that be can move it if they so deem it. Eastern Iowa-own two stocked ponds-Channels, largemouth and bluegills. Fish DNR stocked trout streams and the Mississippi. The scout "water turkeys" i.e. Cormorants will arrive shortly= Pond destroyers. Herons arrived already (have a large rookery on the Mississippi near me)=pond and stream destroyers. DNR stocked (DNR=Don't noe ratsh**) river otters are establishing territory=pond, stream and river destroyers. Have seen them destroy pools of brownies, brookies and rainbows just having fun. Take a bite out of their back, leave em' on the bank and go back for more. Point of all this is-How do you control em'. I love wildlife, but sometimes too much of a good thing is too much (like beer drinking) Shoot,shovel and shutup (SSS) philosophies can come to bear, but it's a good way to lose the farm. I have a problem with my private property and that's the only place I want to control. Suggestions would be appreciated-thanks Postbeetle.
