ssMaking good use of a whitetail skull!

13 posts in this topic

I decided Saturday would be a good day to clean up some old deer skulls I had hanging in the rafters of my turkey shed. I found a robbin had already been making use of one of them so decided to put the project off for awhile. I guess she had a better use for them anyway!

I figured an update was due on the robbins. 2 babies about ready to leave the nest. Amazing that 2 weeks ago the eggs weren't hatched yet.

I found another robbin nest with 5 eggs starting to hatch in a different shed today.

Another photo I recently took of a Killdeer nest alongside Gilmore Creek on my Dad's farm.

I took another peek today at the 2nd nest and the babies doubled in size in the last two days. Only 3 babies left, so the others must not have made it out of the shell. The antler nest babies have already flown the coupe.

The robbins at 6 days old. I decided to get photos every 2 days if I can remember. Cool to see the rapid growth on the little buggers!

The old robbin nest has fallen on hard times with the heavy rains blowing in. The nest was saturated and tipping over when I went to check tonight. Only one robbin baby left at 14 days. I propped the nest up with a post so he could atleast sit flat in it.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
