Reply To: any suggestions for woodpecker?
A game warden in our area caught a backwoods man with a pileated woodpecker, which is protected. He asked him what he was planning to do with it as he was writing up an $800 ticket. The gentleman said he was planning to eat it as he always did. The game warden was perturbed, but asked him anyways, “well just out of curiosity, what does one taste like?” The hick responded, “Kind of like a cross between a bald eagle and a barn owl”. Hahaha! Just a joke. I did have a friend blow the corner eave off of his home one Saturday morning as he attempted to dispatch a repeat offender woodpecker, who rapped on his gutter. Make sure you are good and awake. Seriously though, you might want to try a rubber snake or plastic owl first.
