Thanks for the info Saskie. Unfortunately Fort a la Corne is a draw zone only, and I will be hunting the regular rifle season which starts Sept 13. I think I may start scouting up north of White Fox, near the flats along the Torch river, maybe speak to some of the locals. If you have any more ideas on where to go, I would really appreciate them. Thanks again.
I've heard good things from that area, especially north of Love. Find the old Grassy Lake fire tower and start scouting that area and along the river there. Historically north of Snowden/Choiceland used to have a herd long before elk hunting became "fashionable", I haven't lived there for 15yrs now, so my info is a bit out of date.
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...
