    They work really well. If you’re not going to fish mice out regularly, to reduce the death smell, you can use antifreeze. You just need a means of disposal to keep away from pets and animals.

    Yea, I used cooking oil for that reason but i like the antifreeze suggestion. Something heavier than water causes them to get coated and sink fairly quickly.

    I was able to take the day off so I could do a little food plot work. I limed, seeded, mowed (with a weedeater), and sprayed 2 plots and got some seed down on the third plot. The plan is to put some more seed down in a couple weeks and then again in Oct to layer the wheat and oats through the season. I still have some shooting lanes to clean up, cameras to hang, and last minute trail maintenance to do and then I'll be ready for the season.

    Thanks lak! It was hot and humid but I got a fair amount done for once. It seems tree/trail cleanup has been my nemesis since last summer so it was nice to work on something different.

    My mowing and spraying from two weeks ago has really knocked the weeds back so I fertilized and re-seeded the plots today with rain expected tomorrow and Monday.

    Already have some good germination from the previous seeding even though we've had less than an inch of rain over the last few weeks.

    I had another large oak come down across the pasture trail. Got my buddy to help make room enough for the four wheeler to get through and finished cleaning up all the trails. Hopefully no more downed trees after this.

    The fall shift is starting! A couple of young ones so far and what looks like a right nice one from the tactacam, but it's hard to tell for sure on the thumbnail. I'll have to pull the card to verify.

    Good luck. I got my first picture of sparring this year a few days ago.

    It's still very dry here in Virginia. Our last rain was .10" and that was 11 days ago, but the plots are still growing.

    Interesting! Same date as last year when I first started getting nice ones on camera.

    Hard to say for sure but the back buck from 21’ sure looks similar to the buck in 22’.

    Agreed. I thought it was him too as I was studying pics from last season. He has the same long, widespread brows and slight upturn toward the end of his right main beam.
    He appears to be slightly taller and heavier this year.

    Finally got some needed rains yesterday. Depending on the track of Hurrican Ian, we might get some more this coming weekend too. I just hope we don't go from one extreme to the other since the Atlantic has gotten more active recently.
