Thanks Everet; That's probably it. My grandfather made his living buying and selling horses. Although my dad was a cattle broker, we

always had at least one horse, either in the pasture or the barn. My nickname was Maverick ( I played cards too ) and a lot of my

classmates only remembered me by that name. At our 50th class reunion, we invited a number of our teachers to join us. One of my

teachers spotted me and hollered: "Hey, Maverick, are you still riding horses?" He later told me that he couldn't remember my name.

the bigger the turtle the older the turtle and the more toxins it has the ability to store in its organs and its fat. where a turtle lives may very well dictate the above.

Mousie, you are so right!!
The sewer Lagoons are monitored for oxygen levels and toxins, Sludge is removed every few years and tested. No telling what is in the swamps and how long is has been there.

Have you ever thought of where the duck or goose you just shot ate its last meal or was swimming in. It is amazing the wild life around waste water lagoons.

I ended up contacting a turtle farm in Iowa and got a couple ideas. I talked to the customer and we decided to wait til spring to trap them out. Their concern was the turtles digging through their liner, but I don't think they will be able to as it's pretty thick stuff. As far as eating the turtles I wasn't planning on that. Just catch and release. Yes the pond is surrounded by a fence, but it has several places a turtle can crawl under. That was also discussed with the owner. Thanks for all the comments and we will see what happens in the spring.
