I don't ask to hunt on private land. If I'm not invited, I don't go. As little public land as we have around here, there's lots of land if you know where it is. The vast majority of private here is either closed or fee hunting, I have never fee hunted.
I'll be hunting both this year. My familly has some land that's a high beech nut producer, but I tend to wander off the property into public land alot. I have not seen many people using the public land available in the last two years. It's really too bad.
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...
