private investor/ trader, inventor, songwriter, musician, bmw motorcycle enthusiast, law inforcement background, marksman, 25yrs as security system specialist, trained by a serial killer (life is strange, but that's another story), and proud father. I live in God's country on the shores of lake Pend Oreille, in the Idaho panhandle where I have a long and on-going relationship with wild animals. I maintain a year-round feeding station for flying squirrels. Maybe the only place on the planet where you can reliably have flying squirrels come to you every night of the year - about 10' from my door. Several species of wild birds will come to me for feed, some landing on my head, even landing on my coffee cup while I'm holding it. Eagles & ospreys are here year-round. Bears & bobcats show up on my deck. And a six-pack of wild turkeys hang about in the winter, responding to my whistle for feeding. They call me the squirrel whisperer.
