I did my show in a city with a 200,000 plus population. My question goes out to people that do their shows in the same size cities. What is your nightly attendance like for the season? and over how many nights?

Mt house is in a small village of 1,700 retired farmers and young unemployed in a cornfield of 15,000 people and probably 10,000 deer, 3 hours due west of Chicago.
I can't imagine being located with 200,000 people there.
200,000 deer, raccoons, possuum, skunks, coyotes, this I can imagine.
I swear that one night there must have been 90 coyotes surrounding the house.

I guess I should have known better then to ask this question.

I'm a country boy Jim, I know all about Coyotes, Retired farmers, Deer, Skunks, and Racoons.

We are in a town of just over 125,000, with over a million within an hours drive, we run for six days. We average on slow nights 600 to 750. On our busy nights we see 2,000 plus.

We've been doing this for 21 years, it doen't happen over night.
