The Sabine River was out of its banks and we had water under the feeders. Had duck and coots under the feeders for a few weeks.

Some of those Emus you guys saw in East Texas might have originally been on my place since the guy who owned our place plus about 100 acres raised not only emus but had up to eight buffaloes and was known to everybody in that area of Houston County as Buffalo Bob. His son told me that when the market crashed he simply opened the gate and let the Emus out. They went into Davy Crockett National Forest.

Saw a coatimundi once. Diid a little research on their range and found kids in Mexico and Central/South America keep them as pets and as the family moves North and food gets scarce they start looking mighty good for the stew pot so the kids turn them loose to save them. I'm sure our local coyotes are thankful.

I have seen a few zebras and a camel once, but there's a "Joe Exotic" type place right down the road so no big surprise.

Two river otters that showed up in the middle of the afternoon on a very hot August day last year in East Texas.

Just like you, except my son told me these were otters from the future based on the date.

After the great Emu bust, one of the local entrepreneurs just turned out about a dozen.
Said the lock on the gate got cut when thieves broke into his place.

For about a week, all I got on one game camera was what looked like a snake or stick.
I figured it was one of the family members messing with me on camera.
A later picture revealed an Emu looking right in the camera.

Also had one walk up on me while working on fence one day....scared the heck outta me!


Cheers,

I have had nutria show up at the corn feeder a couple of times when I was in the Hill Country. Also seen a Bald Eagle and a Golden Eagle fly over the corn feeder. Rattlesnake a couple of times. Dogs quite a few times. Sandhill Cranes quite a few times have shown up at the feeder.

The last two corn feeders I had Ramball build for me I had him fix the lid where I could lock them. More than once I have had wet backs leave a lid open after they ate/took corn from it and believe it or not it rained. You know the rest of the story. It's messy.

Years ago was turkey hunting on Guadalupe river bottom just outside of Seguin. I was calling and heard something breaking brush on the other side of a lil thicket I was against. I crept around the thicket and came face to face at about 15yds with a giant 6x6 elk. We stared at each other for about 5 seconds and both of us turned around and ran opposite directions. Scared the living life out of me....not sure about the elk
