There are a lot of raccoons this year.  

When Patti lived in Vernon,NJ - plenty of Raccoons would visit the Dumpsters after the Black Bears opened them and dragged the garbage up the Mountain.  She lived in a Townhouse Community  with a Golf Course near the Ski Slopes.

There are at least five well known dens within 100 yards of those condos. The NJ Division of Fish & Wildlife annually tags the sows and their cubs each winter that use those dens.  Most of the dens are in the ski runs themselves.

My trail cameras and in person sightings reveal more predators in recent years in my woods. Raccoons, Fox, Coyotes, Hawks, Fisher and Weasel mostly. For some reason I seldom see Possums and skunks anymore. Turkey and grouse population is way down.  

   I have never Seen a Fisher myself down here in Orange County. 

  Wish there was a Study on how many Black Bears are able to Locate Turkey Nests . A Clutch  of 10+ Eggs would amount to a Snack for Bears. Northren  New Jersey,Orange + Rockland County's in New York= Too many Black Bears.

   Northren  New Jersey's Turkey Population  seems to be rebounding  some. I just killed a Jake on October 28th. A good 12 members in that Flock. I opted not to buy another Turkey Permit or 2 and leave well enough alone. I have killed enough of them.

 I do see Plenty of Possums.  I know they eat plenty of Ticks as well.
