    Thanks Rich :worthy:

    Ned, that's how we ended up with our pet, she managed to escape from 2 different traps and "got educated" enough to avoid small areas that smelled of salmon.

    That works on a little young ****; but, a large one will take the hatch away from you and use it on you.

    5280 shooter brings up an interesting point: I'm not sure what triggers it, but if you work with wildlife you will occasionally have individual animals of a number of species that will throw all caution to the wind and more or less join in with whatever is going on at the time. This seems more prevalent on military bases based on my experiences. Whitetail deer, for example, are highly curious animals. I've had individual deer follow me around in the woods on prescribed/controlled burns frequently coming up to less than 100 feet away and just hanging around for an afternoon. Fox, both the native grey and the imported red are not a long way from being semi-domesticated. In fact, I have a grey fox that comes up frequently around 4-5 in the mornings when I step off the back steps to "pump bilges" (Navy slang :jester:). He/she will come up to 20-25 feet and just stand there barking at me. I'll answer the fox with a few whistles, and it stays around 'till I go back inside.

    So you know what the fox says?
