GoosehunterJr – if you can belive it I think my goose hunt has been rained out. We’ve had a very wet year to date with flooding all over. The geese normally come to my neighbors pond and attempt to nest on a small island in the middle of it. She tells me that there were eight geese there on Wednesday and Thursday, but then it rained again and it has been raining on and off ever since. The island which was really just a barely more than a series of humps made by reeds growing on a submerged sandbar is now under water and the geese are gone. L When we have dry years the island is dry ground. Most of the time it hovers at just above the water level. But this year, the water is high and what little of the island above water that remained is now gone entirely! Sigh. More rain is forecast for the next few days, but hopefully it will dry out a little bit before the September goose season comes around! On a positive note, my buddy Ren2Arms just got permission for us to hunt on another property in the next town over. The land owner says that he is sick and tired of geese crapping on his roof and in his yard. We can solve that problem for him and be happy to do so!
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...
