something new- UPDATED
« on: September 16, 2017, 01:43:22 PM »
i always like to try new things. today i put up bow hangers, safety straps and cleared lanes. i'm behind, but it's been 10 degrees about normal and humid. it's not good IMO, even though my season started today, i heard a rifle shot last night, so i'm betting someone started early and will call it in as a bow kill. man i hate poachers!!!!!!!!!!

so my folks place has no food or water. i did a poor mans plot that appears to be coming in. i'm not sure if it's rye or weeds coming up. today i cut up my old water softener. i used the base and the top. i buried them by 2 stands and filled them w/ water. one holds 9 gallons and the other holds 5 gallons. i'm sure the coons will have a field day, but i think the deer will like it to. i'll let you know

anyone else done this? i have to believe during the rut it will be a favorite place in the middle of the day

Haven't tried that Yari, but now that I have my pond at the house back to where it holds water, I'm seeing quite a lot of sign out on the south end (away from the house).  It's been really dry here for the last two months aside from one week when we had a couple of nice showers.  The creeks are mostly dried up in the area.  I think it's probably a worthwhile effort - will be interested to hear how that works out - did you put a camera on either one?
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

mad- i don't have cams on either. they are both next to some 'mineral blocks'. i tried some compressed molasses, grain and apple scented blocks. the blocks are north of the stands and the water is south. the blocks have cams on them. everything seems to eat on them. they are +20% protein so they have good nutritional value.

the neighbors dogs need to go. the beagle must be gone and they replaced it w/ another poodle looking thing. one peed on my block. i'll have to stop by and warn them. i've had problems w/ them every year. i don't shoot dogs because it's the owners fault, not the dogs.

I have to say the deer really used this tank. once they got use to it, they were drinking 6 gallons a week. i will definitely do it again next year. i may have to go bigger so i don't need to refill it as often

I've always thought about doing this, I thought maybe have like a reservoir tank up higher on the hill away from it, run a garden hose down to it on a float that way I wouldn't have to go in so much, its like everything else though, never enough time.
tank of gas: $50
hunting licence: $190
ammo: $20
getting to spend time with family and hunting buddies: priceless
