A lady said one ate her dog 2 weeks ago in Kansas city kansas and one was hit by a car in kansas city Mo last year. The conservation department said they are moving to this area because of the large deer populations.
My husband and I were walking our dog last Saturday night (Oct. 30th) on a road behind the University of Iowa Athletic Club in Iowa City and we saw a mountain lion cross over from Finkbine Golf Course to a heavy wooded area just south of the Finkbine parking lot (fthis area is FULL of deer). There is no question we saw the long roped tail and cat ears...it paused between street lights before it dashed into the woods... we filed a report with UI safety and security.
Here is a very handy and effective device I use to dispense corn with - but it could also be used to dispense any other seed or deer feed.
I had an old feeder that had a failed motor... I made a set of brackets to attach the feeder to the rear of the 4 wheeler - the lower one encircles the feeder and has a forward section with holes drilled in the outer ends of the bracket... these holes align with two 5/16" bolts that drilled into the rack of the 4 wheeler.
The upper bracket is an "L" shaped...
