New to this site, just wanted to post some pics of the hogs we have been seeing out here in east tx. the pic doesn't do it justice, was a real monster. Will post more later. Tell me what yall think...Matt
YA THEY ARE REALLY GETTING OUT OF CONTROL. EVERY PASTURE IS ROOTED UP. I DONT EVEN KNOW HOW MANY WE HAVE TAKEN THIS YEAR. I AM RUNNING 3 TRAPS ON 200 ACRES, BUT THEY HAVE GOTTEN TO SMART FOR THAT. I GET SOME IN THE TRAPS ONLY EVERY COUPLE WEEKS. -- YA THAT IS A SPARK PLUG SOCKET IN HIS MOUTH, IT WAS IN THE BED OF THE TRUCK. HA, WELL GOOD HUNTIN
Ya i have tried locking the doors up, but i havent really noticed a diffrence. I think they are just getting used to seeing them and know to stay away. Ya i used a rifle, we were spot lighting and he ran down into a creek bottom. We couldnt find him then noticed him haulin towards a fence line with some thick woods behind him. He got right up to the fence and stopped. Was using a 7mm dropped him in one shot, then finished it with a head shot when we got close and saw what we were dealing with. ha it was hell getting him in the bed of the truck.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
