This is part of country life. Many country folks have different preferences than city folk. When suburbanites intrude into rural areas, stuff like shooting and hunting may cause conflicts.

If the power company removed the "decoration", the landowner could make their own pole to display it.

I'm sure an HOA in Cary would frown on the exhibit the OP described (LOL).

Sorry, but I'm not that offended.

That place looks like a junkyard with a bunch of rusted out garbage.

That's more of an eyesore than anything.

Yes, but the farm was there when it still was country. Someone chose to build developments around the farm and now they are complaining because country people are doing what country people do. Kind of like building housing development next to an existing airport and then complaining about the noise.

^ I agree. The farm was there before the subdivision. Whoever bought a property in the subdivision knew there is an old farm across the street and should have had some idea of what to expect. As weird as it is I think the boar's head is a trophy. And gunfire in the country really is not unusual.

Mounting boars' heads on utility poles, which doesn't even belong to them, has nothing to do with living in the country! That's not something that is "to be expected" when one moves near a vegetable farm in the suburbs (and is nothing like moving next to an airport and complaining about the noise.)

I don't care about the gun fire as long as whatever they're doing is legal.

Is it IN the corporate limits of Cary? If not then why would you call it Cary?

Kinda looks like farmland to me. Bet he has live there a lot longer than you have been driving past his farm.

If he drove a stake in the ground 3 feet from that pole, and put the head on it, then you wouldn't have a complaint ................... right
