How many of us gun hunters believe that the statewide youth gun hunt effected the statewide gun season? Did the state schedule the youth too close to opening day? I like what ODOW did, but I think it could of been scheduled a bit different
to continue, I heard some complaints that the deer just were not there, but you have to factor in opening day, there was a pretty stiff wind all day, I hunted Ohio Power lands SW of Cambridge, and the deer just wernt there, like it was 2 weekends earlier when we scouted, and saw over 150 deer in about 6 hours, with over 3/4 of them in gun range, the quality of deer we saw was exceptional, actually more bucks than does,
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...
