Jim - The first one measures roughly 130 (8pt.) he only measured 14 inside
The second measures 150 (11 pt.) measured 17 1/8 inside and had very short G4's
The third measured 170 (15 pt.) measured 15 4/8 inside. Had nice character!
The first and third came from same area and # 2 was about 7 miles away. 1 & 2 are lacking heavy mass, I have mounted every set of antlers I've ever gotten or found and I love 'em all!
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...
