The northern Catskill mountains is a healthy environment, with plenty of wildlife to enjoy. Or not. Bears who like to pick apples and raid bee hives, herons and Fisher Cats plucking the fish from your pond, voles eating the spring bulbs, and of course, last but FAR from least, the deer. Hey, it's the country. After four decades of coping with my feral neighbors, I have some good strategies to pass along.
