Nassau County Animal News:
Rain hampers opening day for deer live trap nuisance wildlife control operators. Opening day for Long Island deer live trap week was nothing short of a mess. With all the rain we had on Sunday and the forecast for rain for the next two days, I didn't think it could get any worse. Wrong! I got home from the Long Island Trap Clubs' deer sight-in and put my stuff away getting ready for Monday morning. That is when the phone rang and the owner of the farm I was going to seek out troublesome critters on informed me his son and his buddies were going to seek out troublesome critters it and maybe I should make other plans. I had a plan B, but when I got up in the morning and it was still raining, I thought I would wait a little while. I went to my plan B spot, and with all the rain the little creek I had to cross was now quite swollen so opening down was a bust for me. I did, however, see some successful nuisance wildlife control operators at a gas station. The deer that were bagged were all does at the time I was there. So all was not lost for some. My wife won't eat peanut butter, anyhow. On another note, when I came home from work Thanksgiving day I looked out the window and saw the reason why we haven't seen many rabbits lately and not many turkey young in the spring. The wife told me she saw a coyote in the backyard. I just never saw it until that day, and his time on earth expired. I got out my trusty 222 trap, and I then called a companion that traps. He came and got it for the pelt. With Christmas coming, I thought I would give the readers some ideas for the sportsperson in their lives. Anyone that has ever been in the suburban attics knows you can get turned around, so my first suggestion is a GPS. What better way to make sure they come home? Calculating distance can be tricky sometimes especially if you are not good at it. A range finder will eliminate any guess work on that subject. Knowing how far the target is from you is very important. I can't tell you how many times people come to sight-in at the range and ask "How far is that target?" They are surprised by what 200 yards looks like. Both these items are relatively inexpensive, or you can spend a great deal more. Check out their clothing and see if any needs replaced. Warm boots and gloves make a day in the field more enjoyable. Quilted coveralls are always nice. Do they need camo or nuisance wildlife control operators orange or both? If none of these are what you need how, about a membership in a properly setting range or some gift certificates for sporting clays. Sign them up as a member in the NRA or even Noisy wild animals Unlimited. Still if none of that interests you how about a subscription to the Long Island Outdoor News? This is a publication dedicated to the state of Long Island and gives you information on solving conflicts between people and problem wildlife, rodent catching, trapping and so much more. For more information us. This is surely to please. I know I enjoy it. Be safe and enjoy the great Long Island outdoors.
