Thumper got thumped...

I noticed some damage to the low portions of my hops along with something digging and attacking the root system... then this morning I noticed the little gray fur ball having a meal.

I baited the back yard with a hand full of mixed nuts, set my bow just inside the small garage door, and about an hour ago, me and thumper had a conversation... thumper agreed to wait in the fridge for the grill to warm up...

If I could only get Japanese beetles to go after mixed nuts...

Strange. We have a family of rabbits living under our back porch, right next to the hop garden. They haven't so much as paused to sniff the bines.
