    Rock ends at out drive and make a 90° turn that is dirt. Can see for 1/2 mile down it, corn on one side and CRP on the other. Watched a hen turkey all spring and into the summer feeding on and along the road. The other evening i was looking down the road watching the rabbits play in the dirt. Out of the neighbors drive not 30 yd from the house came a nice 8 point, followed by 2 - 6 points and the last one really caught my eye. A 3 point. Had his left rack missing. First time I seen this in real life. Looked strange but didn't seem to bother him any. Be easy enough to spot later on for sure.

    So glad that we raised our kids in the country, granted I married a direct descendant of Noah that had to have 2 of every animal the city was never an option for us.

    1/2 mile down a dirt road and a 2000 foot drive way. Lots of critters and a lot of work but wouldn't change anything.
