    What about an apple core thrown from a tree stand? Keep in mind, I have been told I throw like a girl. Baiting, littering or Johnny Appleseed?

    Why would you eat the apple first? I take all my apples out to the woods. Im telling ya, this whole throw and grow is fun. Ill take whole bushels of em out and put em around the woods-apple trees are slow growers, so that must be why im not seeing many results yet, lots of animal tracks so im optimistic the wildlife likes my plans.

    So redistributing natures bounty a no go? Like moving apples to a safer location.

    Gummy carrots are on sale at Walmart. 4.4 pounds for 26 bucks. Not sure how good of a deal that is.

    Better seed to ground contact. Really need that seed to ground contact. I eat as close to the core as possible and when I throw it it tumbles and disburses the seeds

    After learning that baiting is now illegal in public land, I went back to the drawing board. I finally got about a half acre tilled up this morning and I through a schitt load of seed. Then I saw someone mention corn and apples to let them germinate. Some dude was bitching at me when I was driving the tiller back out. Screw pushing that thing back to the trail, I let the tines eat! I told him to piss off and get a real gun.

    Can back a couple hours later with the quad and trailer full of corn. Both on the cob and off, just for good measure. Had them throw a scoop of beets on top too. Maybe I can get those to sprout too. Their basically like a potato. The asssshole in the tree was gone by the time I finally got out there. Took a while having to drop a few trees on my way out there. Damn chainsaw was giving me fits.

    I finally got it all spread out real good. Took damn near a full bushel of Lattes so I’m gonna have to make another run to the corner store before I come back out to hunt tonight. I picked up my beer can trail though on my way out. I don’t want some public land freeloader to find my spot and hunt all the work I just put in. I know it’s public and everyone can use it, but this is MY spot now.

    I’m gone grab a couple private signs to throw up, just to keep the POS freeloaders out.

    Did you switch to a saddle so you could reach your nuts?
