So far this year, I've spotted a LOT more rabbits (especially), grouse and deer. Typical bear sightings, and all the blueberry bushes in my backyard have just been plucked clean. After not noticing much in the way of coyote activity, I've been hearing more yipping dogs as the sun goes down during the past few weeks. Even the bass fishing has been excellent this season. Our little brown bat has failed to show up though, after hanging out on our front porch for the past six or seven years.

I've been seeing a lot of foxes the past few months along with more raccoons. Saw a lot of skunks earlier in the year, but not many recently.NRA Patron Member

I've only seen one grouse, a LOT of deer, and one dead rabbit.“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny”

Lots of turkey, coyote (with dead cat in mouth), deer, red & gray squirrels, chipmunks lately in the yard. Don't see any rabbits the past couple of years . . . I think that I know why.
Had a young coyote run across the road a few 100' in front of us coming home the other night.Mass. Gun Laws By and For Non-Lawyers (How To Stay Legal and Out of Trouble) - Seminar

lots of hawks, a few vultures, and lots of turkey, i hit one with a car from my work a couple weeks ago, and i just spend 20 minutes watching a few turkeys behind my work. there is a baby rabbit that has been digging at my work, i can get really close to it before it gets scared.
at home my cats catch the bunnies, chipmunks, moles, voles, and mice. but they don't always kill them.
