    You mentioned that turkeys are getting near Cincinnati. Actually, they are in Cincinnati. I saw a sizeable flock feeding on the ground near Mt. Airy Forest, a week or so ago.

    There are beavers in West Fork Creek, behind the forest as well.

    Sorry, but way boring today, and honestly most days. Suggest cut with the small talk, do more homework, and lengthen the show with more meat. Or just hang it up! At 30 minutes, you are in no man’s land (especially with “we gotta get to a break” every few minutes, and most breaks you gotta get to are basically PSA’s for WLW). I love the outdoors, and seek out outdoor radio wherever I am, but this show compared to most any other is just weak sauce.
