Well a friend of mine was at work when a man showed up and said that he had just shot his first deer ever. So she looked out a window to see the man had a Calf straped to the roof of his car. He shoot a cow thinking it was a deer.
About 10 years ago. I got permision to hunt a new piece of property. The guy that gave me permision failed to mention that there was a deer farm (exotics) on the property next door.
I was sent down into the bottom to drive the deer to him. I got into the thicket and saw all the White tails flag, I "bulled" my way through the rest of it and leveled out the gun on the heard. I spoted antlers on one of them and got a good aim (then it clicked) those antlers are black! I didn't shoot but man it was close!
The deer herd ran right next to the penned in area on the other side of the hedgerow and right next to the herd of exotics inside.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
