Last night as the sun was setting I flew the drone around and took a few pictures of the campground.The rifle and pistol range is that line of trees at the foot of the mountains. That mountain is the backstop.
I deleted two mice from the Arctic Fox last night, in fact I caught them both just about dark and for the rest of the night I didn't hear any mousy sounds.
After I caught the two mice I set out three more traps and they were untouched this morning. So it looks to me like I got the mice that were living with me and now I've got to keep their hundreds of brothers and sisters out.
I crawled around under the back end of the Arctic Fox with a flashlight and spotted one suspicious place which I stuffed with some steel wool and glue. It was a small hole that I had previously filled with just some steel wool but the steel wool had almost completely rusted away, thank you Padre Island Texas. Normally I would use bronze wool since it doesn't rust, but that's not easy to find at your average hardware store.
Darrell Goza suggested that I revert to high-tech methods and use a Riddex electronic gadget which I'm giving some serious consideration to because dealing with mice in the house is no fun. I'm always amazed to find that what sounds like a family of Wolverines living under your sink is actually a 3 inch long mouse.
I wanted to deal with their little mouse carcasses in an appropriate and dignified manner so I tossed them in the general direction of Fluffy the friendly coyote, and Fluffy recycled them.
The big flat area on the right is The shooters end of the thousand yard rifle range.
I finally got a neighbor now there's two of us staying here.The host's fifth wheel is under the cover, and my new neighbor is the fifth wheel right below that.
The rifle and pistol range is straight ahead, and the thousand yard rifle range target end is on the far left.
