    That's was an endangered snow mole, and that lot just became a nature preserve so no more plowing,and send a refund in.

    I thought it was going to be something good, like a deer or at least a rabbit.

    I dang near split a deer in half with my V plow years ago.

    I'm very conservative. I think it's better to "start small" and work my way up! Maybe a skunk or possum next. I did notice in the rear of one of my lots that a dozen or so deer uses a spot against building to bed down. Told my friend who drives one of my trucks to bring his bow.If "bird" was around he could probably bag one with the parts falling off one of his trucks.:gunsfiring: (sorry couldn't resist)

    I tried to take out a couple doe back in Dec.

    I didn't think it appropriate to be driving through lawns to get to them however. :laughing:
