I live in N Idaho (Latah County). A while back my wife came upstairs telling me there was a racoon on the back porch growling at her. I said ...`yeah, right'. But I decided to go look. Yeah ... three big buggers on my back porch. No fear. From time to time they come visit. And if you are between them and the door, they either wait, or tear a hole in the screen and go around. I'm told they live under an abandoned house at the other end of the block.
And I see some bird hunting now and then. So, they are around. Dunno what kind of population they constitute. Pretty much all the ones I've seen are within or close to city limits. Don't know if they exist out in the `wild'.
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...
