Coming shortly trapperrick.

Swamp , you know I like to play with them for a while. Bear with me, please.

3 years ago the birds ate a full barrel of bait in 2 days, -twice-.

Day

Image


and night

Image


and deer

Image


The non-target animals had to go!
.." Bird Guard "..

Image
Image

The guard put an immediate stop to both. In fact the noise from the chains probably act as a call themselves. :--D

2 years ago Pipepusher rolled the hand cart above this culvert and had to aim for that small evergreen directly above the water.

Image


I am starting to wise up. Last evening I cleaned things up a bit.

Image

Destination. 400 yards up this drainage.

At sunrise this AM, I took 3 loads in.

Bait is out 8)

Hopefully Wednesday a small deck will be added. (Mostly for me) :lol: , turn the barrel, erect ladder stand, build ground blind and hang a beaver carcass.
There are 3 bear cams out now. :D

Pipepusher, do you have to remove the barrel when season ends or can you leave it until the next season?

Oh yeah, thanks so much for the moose beer sticks you sent for the rondy...delicious.

I think the bear roast turned out very good....I'll wait and see what some of the others who tried it say about it.

Once we all get out pictures together we'll post them on the camp fire thread.
