I am going elk hunting in early October and am concerned about the possibility of warm weather and how to keep my meat from spoiling. I have a 5 hour drive home and I need some ideas on how to preserve the meat!
Where are you huntin? What kind of temps are you expecting? Generally in most places elk live in early October its cool enough that once you down your elk if you quarter it, skin it, get some bags on it you're usually ok if you get it down to the butcher within 24 hrs.
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...
