after the ealier talk of turkeys near the house decided to go back and get a picture of wild turkeys near my house. I can't keep the buggers out of my garden. Check the picture under photo gallery. Might add one of deer also. My wife always has said that if we decide to sell never mind the picture of the house, the picture of the wildlife in itself will sell the house. 34 acrse snuggled 1500 feet off road in rural central ky-my slice of heaven.

thanks to those who imported the pictures. I never intend to sell, but must keep life in perspective-in that I will eventually leave this earthly world for my eternal home and someone else will be the "owner" of this place for a while. It sure is nice to be surrounded by wildlife and the sounds of gods creation and way from the hustle, the bustle, the smog, and the me attitude of the cities. Takes me about 5 minutes in a large city-Lexington Ky to be uncomfortable. I have found true wealth in a good wife, an excellent place to live, 2 great daughters, and a relationship with my god. May all of you be as truly blessed as I am. Plenty of money grubbing urban dwellers would love to live in my location. We keep a strong perspective on rural values and a traditional country lifestyle. Not only do we raise it but we kill it also-a hard fact of life. My daughters understand that farm animals are transitonal from selling to our consumption. Killed chickens today-one must wonder how much common approach society have lost. Great neighbors here-no dog problems, noise, stealing, etc although it can happen any time. When the leaves are out you cannot even see our house from the road-secluded. The antisocial critter coming out in me.

Those are good pictures jf. They have quite a gimmick up here - for serious hunters & it's called some kinda buck club and you have to go to meetings every month. You're assigned to locate and select a buck, watch him all year, learn his habits and bring pictures of his progress every month. Then in november you can shoot him if ya want. Yeah right! By november you have a friend and he has a name and your rifle huntin days are over! From now on it's cameras. :)

Thats just the best. Thats how I want to be living. Never, never, never sell. You have bought a small slice of heaven for sure. Sigh.....

I wouldn't mind having more deer around but to me, that's WAY too many. Just the occasional one that wanders through my apple orchard a couple times a year is enough to get my blood boiling. Destructive.

I wish you had mine. Deer are the most destructive animals. They have killed 2 pear trees for me and eat in my garden. I kill every one I see. (with the game wardens blessing) You have a right to protect your property from them. Turkeys are around also but haven't been a problem as of yet.
