    I said the same thing but He replied the 50+ acres belong to the city the rest belong to the surrounding cities/town. Instead of guessing the acres without looking he reply 50+, instead of over guessing.

    The city has a relocating program for wildlife along with the surrounding cities/town. I saw them trying to catch a deer with a wildlife noose. Let just say that the deer was winning.

    I've heard the same. Bucks seem to roam more, especially during that special time of year!
    I guess my point was if the city is trapping and relocating a lot of deer to 50-100 acres, that's not much land to support a decent size herd of deer. And unless it's high fenced, they probably will relocate themselves again.

    The only high fence area is around the water plant. If you combine all the acres from all the surrounding cities/towns there's probably 1000 acres. This city has the smallest area.

    The reservation area is the best place to put the deer for their safety and the public. The city has no other choice, No place to relocate them.

    Relocate them to my freezer! I understand, there are more deer inside the city limits here than there are outside them. The deer have no hunting pressure, they have a buffet of shrubs/flowers/gardens, and act like they own the place!

    The city has no other choice but to relocate them to the reservation. All the small wooded are turning to someone new home. Small city, over populated.

    At one point there was too many deer in the city before the relocated program started. The deer was killed and the meat was donated to low income families.

    I planted about 30 greens beans and only had 6 or 7 germinate. I even soaked them overnight before planting. They are the bush variety. Seems like the pole variety do better for me.

    Outdoor/barn cat is my best anti-squirrel weapon. Any rabbits that make it past the fence, get the 22LR medicine.

    Anyone know what made this nest? Or is it a fungus?

    Mud dauber?
    They are good insects to have around. Don't sting you unless they have no choice, they clean up other harmful insects around the garden and house. Just build dirt nests and lay eggs in them.

    Nope! This is too wide, I’ll tear it down tomorrow and see what’s inside.

    They can make multiple rows if there are more than one mud dauber and they catch multiple insects. They generally like to stay near dark warm surfaces, like my grill cover for instance. They build the nest just for laying eggs with a host for their larvae to feed on. Generally, the nest will be somewhere not readily visible, like under a porch, car, or on a brick surface. Your picture seems to match a mud dauber nest. Likely insects that have been placed in there is what you will find.

    Our mud dauber nests are maybe 5/8”-3/4” wide and vertical, this thing is closer to 2” wide and horizontal.

    You could be correct, that it’s something else. Seems like what I described, though. I’m curious to learn what you find when you do tear it down.

    Some type of fungus or something, very light and fluffy

    edit: slime mold?

    Is that a marijuana plant that the owl is trying hard not to look at? That's one way to tease that owl. :rasta: :D
