    Found this guy way up in the bigtooth aspen yesterday on my ride. On the way out I decided to check the brook in a certain area, send water!

    They seem to be good climbers, some people shoot them but what the hell, the only thing they have hurt so far are some trees............ mo firewood!

    We have some fishers on our property who will eat some pine.

    As long as you don't have dogs that think they can bit pines, they are OK to have around.
    Bullets cheaper than vet bills :)

    Them bassturds destroy the treetops on the mountain in the winter. You go deer hunting on any mountain top in this area, you can see the way they chew all of the bark off of the bigger limbs and twigs. Destructive little buggerz.......

    In our state their dams help replenish watersheds hundreds of miles away. They are now helping the beavers get reestablished in the Cascades because of this.

    I agree on the rain, the weather reports show a cold front dropping from Canada today that might bring you some. There is a small river that I trout fish near my work that is usually steady flowing and clear. It is a standing murky mess right now.

    Don't know much about porcupines, except that I would not venture to hug one.
