I appreciate you passing that on. There will be some out here (me for one) that will remember this and learn from the mistake you made.
The field that I have my bees in has 6 city storm drainage manhole covers (+2 foot across and over 100 yards apart) that poke up from one to two foot high. I've almost hit them when the grass is tall in my Polaris Ranger more than once. Had I hit them at the speeds I was going I would have been lucky to have just broken bones. I decided over the winter to put up Blue Bird houses right next to each one as 6 ft tall markers. Now I always know where they are and I ended up with 4 Blue Bird, 1 Chickadee, and 1 Titmouse mating pairs.
