Well seems to me its been like this for the past few years ill be out bear hunting and see tonnes of the damn birds then the first day of season opens yesterday i go out all morning and didnt see one bird but the bush is still way to think anyway ahh well ill go out tommorrow on my day off i should see a few ill mostly be doing some walking tho i can see that now cause i wasted way to much gas yesterday (not too mention gas prices are rediculous) specially if you use your vehicle alot to get where your going anyway ill post more as the season goes on (aint hunting life great)
i guess no one else partridge hunts or just dosent wanna talk about it went out again for about 5 or 6 hours of walking got one all day ahh well its a good work out anyway on the old legs seems to me all the birds took off all of a sudden.
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...
