    There are a variety of four legged critters as well. The deer in velvet was in our yard.



    I found this baby mountain lion with a 30 in. tail (the tail is underneath) on our property . Local authorities determined it had been poisoned. You might understand why my wife carries a gun when on her daily walks, why every vehicle has rifles in them, and why my dogs are so important to my work. In addition we have bobcats, coyotes, bears, elk, and moose. This is for anyone that thought the racoons were cute.




    As a scrapper I hope to replenish more than I use.

    You are making me miss my native Wyoming. I lived in the Black Hills area near Devils Tower National Monument. The wildlife there is very similar to yours. From what part of SD do you ranch?

    The ranch is in NE South Dakota and a cabin in the Black Hills. Use to have a home in the Big Horns. I am very familiar with the Hulett area. We might know some of the same individuals.

    A variety of opportunities have presented themselves over the years. A good job in the winter is the oil fields. The tanks are tipped over, cut with a torch, and loaded into tubs provided by the scrap yard. I clean the field and keep all scrap metal proceeds. The owners deal with the EPA regulations and hire the clean out services. Some yards will not take oil field pipe because the ground radiation sets off their sensors and some pipe could be explosive in nature. In the past I have only dealt with the tanks and drills and left the pipe for larger company's. This is a picture of one of three fields I hope to complete next winter. If all goes as planned there will be a total of 35 tanks.
