underground crawler box

5 posts in this topic

I have this fiberglass box that a fella gave me, its about 24"x 32" and 20" high, with a lid, he had bought it for keeping night crawlers in, supposedly made for this use, he said you just dig a hole and put it in the ground with the lid flush to the ground so you could mow over it if need be. fill it with worm bedding and worms, sounds like it ought to work, anyone ever used something like this?? just curious if it works b4 I dig a big hole in the yard??

I lived in a wall tent in Alaska for 3 summer's. The only way to keep meat fresh was to dig a hole and put a wooden box in it.
Two things to keep in mind. Keep the water out or your box or it will float out of the hole, and keep the Grizzle's out. I think your worm's are safe from bear's.
If you have a cool basement put your box of worms on the cement floor, they will do just fine there.

I had one that was 24 long by 18 wide and about 14" deep. It had a mesh bottom like what screen you would find in a window, so moisture could drain properly. It was buried about 12" with 2" exposed above ground. worked very well. kept the crawlers in a temp where they reproduced, always had enought worms. In the spring you had to start over because the cold will kill them

I have found the that the easiest way to keep crawlers is in the basement fridge in a 5 qt ice cream pail. the secret is keep them cool and keep the ants from them

    • Branson is sort of in a transition, since they weren't going to survive catering to a population that's mostly dead now.   I've heard it's getting more interesting for people under the age of 75.     I grew up about 45 minutes from there.   We used to cruise through there on Friday nights and chat up bored out of their mind girls on vacation with grandma and grandpa.     The surrounding area is beautiful, once you get off the highway and away from the billion billboards.

    • Does anyone have any good ideas, memories, experiences with any hunting trips that they would like to share?  My dad is turning 60 in a year and a half and I would really like to plan a once in a life trip that I can buy him.  That being said, I can not spend 20 grand on a 2 man moose hunt in Alaska and that is being generous on the cost of that one, more like 30 plus.   Looking for a moose, caribou like trip.  He has shot a big muley in the past and an elk, so that may not be top on his list anymore.   Just looking for ideas.  Thanks much.

    • Have not been around here much but always enjoy the "Turkey Talk" Count me in. Hunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. Archery for both.  
    • I put my feeders out 1st of May usually. Such a neat bird. We usually only have a few so they are territorial here. Fun to watch one guard a feeder and then zip down when another one comes. Maybe they get along in bigger numbers?   Up north at daughters inlaws on a lake the neighbors have 4 feeders under a big pine and usually a bunch of hummers. Saw about 15 one time and they got along fine. Pretty neat. 
    •   So that's the evidence you have about illegal wiretaps that apparently nobody else has besides Trump?  That Obama's a bad (or sick) guy?   Try harder.   
    • Yup, everytime i call you or del out to put up the truth about your own bodies, you dodge. Wouldn't that be the ultimate proof that your way of addressing personal health and wellness is more effective in preventing and healing?  I think you guys have an idea from what you've been told and not what you bring yourself to learn and you never put anything to use so, who are you really to share your opinion? A couple of blowhards, thats who.
    • What crankbaits do you like for the 7-9ft range?   Looking for something that casts/have action like a DT-10, but doesn't run quite as deep. I have some SK series 4, but they have the wider wobble which sometimes I don't want. The SK series 3's just don't cast that far, especially in a wind. Same with some others, they always seem to be smaller in this range.   Thanks.
