Worm Grunting...

14 posts in this topic

Anybody ever try it? It's sort of a barbaric practice, and probably should be banned, but it looks like it really works...down in Florida anyway...

Google "worm grunting" - there's a couple of good videos to watch..

I read where worm grunting is much more effective than rain - in Florida anyway - don't know if it works up here..

Tear up some newspaper, and get it damp. Put it, (and the worms) in a stryrofoam container with a lid on it and stick it in the fridge (in a place where your wife won't find it)..

Yeah, the grunting sounds interesting.

But if we wanted crawlers, we'd water the lawn really hard during the day and then do the colored flashlight thing after dark and we'd have all we could handle. Or we'd wait for a good rain and hit the local golf course after dark.

I know a guy that uses the electrical stakes. They work really well. You can pick your bait up in about 5 minutes. He bought his at Walmart like 10 years ago. They are no longer sold there.

So what in the heck do you have to be searching for to find a video on worm grunting if you've never heard of it before seeing the video? grin

    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
