First time one of these has been able to climb that PVC pole.  Once they figure it out they bring back friends.  Sad

You are gentle soul Bob. I don’t think I would have as much restraint as you do. Weird that he could get a grip on that pole. They do have tremendously sharp toe nails. Maybe you just need to clip them? Wink

I have not installed my “Twirl-a-squirrel “ out in the garden this year. The cat is holding his turf all by himself.

I am not sure if this was posted here or somewhere else, but it is worth the time to watch.  
It’s on Facebook, you might not be able to watch, I forgot. Anyway for the rest of the crew:

Guilty Ron, but it always wasn't so.

When I was 13 or 14, walking back from a morning of hunting pheasant with my Stevens model 11 12 gauge, this one....

I noticed a squirrel gathering nuts on the forest floor probably 40 feet away. Having just bird shot I popped it.  Mom's pretty good at cooking game, and I have spit out many a 7.5.  Walked up and noticed that it was a nursing female, just a couple of pellets hit it, but it was enough.  Hung my head and never shot another.  Still feel badly about it today.  

Had a Fawn and it's mother in the side yard a couple of days ago. Tiny thing on teetering legs, newly born I would think. Also lots of fledged Red Wing Blackbirds too, Mom and Dad stuffing them with insects etc.. Bear hasn't been back, think I scared him. Smile

Loved your video Rene, wish I was half that creative.

Grease the pole with something noxious! My squirrels get thier morning dose of .17 pellets....that is the slow learners anyway. The rest decided the ground was safer!

I’ve done something similar Bob. Here in Oklahoma we have a Holiday Doe season, it’s very short and I assume it’s designed to control the huge population of Deer we have in Oklahoma. It was the last day of the season and I had nothing to bring home when a very large Doe came out of the wood line 100 yards from me. I took my shot and all was well until a much smaller doe stepped out and stood by the fallen one. It didn’t have spots so I am guessing it was a yearling. It wouldn’t leave so I was heartbroken and considered taking another shot as it was perfectly legal to do so. Suddenly a third Doe stepped out and the younger one ran up to it and they both left the field together. I felt a little better about my decision, but I have learned to be a bit more patient and look at the bigger picture. Had I have waited I would have took the last Doe as she was even larger than the first.

How about a little mineral oil, crisco, or Vaseline on it to keep the critters off?

I don't know if you have a similar product, but we have a garden fertiliser called "Blood & Bone". Any guesses what it is?
Anyhow, as we don't have Squirrels, we sprinkle this product around the plants that we want to protect from rabbits and they won't come near it. Mind you, we don't have bears, so they may actually be attracted by the Blood & Bone.

Why do all the pests need to be so cute?

I quit counting at 20 deer in my back yard a couple of years ago Ron. Almost ran over a fawn with my hedge hog hidden in the tall grass. Not so many now for some reason. In years of hunting in New Hampshire I only saw one. A buck walking right beside me along an old logging road. We never noticed each other. I had borrowed my buddy's model 94 Winchester and by the time I shouldered it he was gone.

While not Schweitzer, in my advancing years I have learned a certain Reverence for life. I have given up hunting all together and have been known to escort a spider or two out of the house. How do you do that, well a tissue and a light touch. Mom said, never kill a spider.

Rod, Australia may not have bears but they do have Koala's. Latest issue of the Smithsonian Magazine has a article "The great Koala rescue operation" details that at least 45,000 or 75% of Koala's perished in the recent fires. Thankfully their diet consists mostly of eucalyptus not the flowers that deer and rabbits love so much, and I don't think they topple bird feeders.

Going to polish that post with something, but first I would like to see how that critter climbs that post then swings up to the feeder.

Yeah, Happy Fathers Day. Some kids coming over today, some heading for the beach.

Nice pictures there, and a cute guest you have. Well, if you can't beat them, might as well build them a set of stairs..... Laughing
