Lockhart Gaddy's wild geese refuge started accidentally in 1934, when migrating Canadian geese began settling on his farm pond in Anson County. This year he expects to have over 7,000 wintering there. Because he was feeding them up to twenty-five bushels of corn a day, Gaddy began charging a small fee admission to defray the cost of the feed. This attracted the tax collector who said the fee was subject to the governmentÃ¯Â¿Â½s amusement tax.
