BTW still in a drought....freezer emptying. food

I didn't know North Texas had bears. Having lived in the west you'd see where they loved to rip open rotted logs. Looks like it here also, but I know better. In Part 1 someone mentioned wood wasp larvae....BINGO!!! banana I took these NYE the same day I met Mr. Poacher. A fallen tree with a stump had been shredded. They had also rooted around the stump to a depth of about 18". The chunks off the deadfall tree were the size of a man's arm. No banana so hat for scale. Bonus photo of the shoulder of I35W in Tarrant County, just on the north side of Justin Creek. Both sides of the highway were roto-tilled pretty good. Also, anybody driving in Dallas can see where they've rooted on the Trinity River levee off I35E just north of Regal Row.

They went through and cut a couple firebreaks on ft hood where I hunt. Lots of rooting in the leftover mulch lately.
