  • We piled up a bunch of Xmas trees for our big pond one year, left them for a year to let all the needles fall off, places them in summer. You’re right about the snakes. I pulled a tree off the pile while loading them onto the jon boat and a fat ol water snake fell onto my foot while napping. He took off but my god I about came out of my skin.

  • Not sure if your see this but when you cooked that Squirrel it was tough as shoe leather. Tip once you skin and clean it, vac pack it and age it in your fridge for min of 7 days then bread it fry and make a graveyard from the oil and then add the fried Squirrel back into the gravy and cover and then cook til when you put a fork in it it will fall off the bone. No more shoe leather.

  • Eye protection please, I know you used it with the chainsaw but when you were man handling the twigs with the ax you didn't and that's when it happens, no matter the experience. I got nailed a few times and was lucky so took me that experience to figure maybe I should. Any time I handle crazy twigs like that, I mean look at all the protruding limbs that can get you. We want your eyes around man. Be safe

  • You are going to need more weight on those Christmas trees , I put some out last week , I put 2 trees together and it took a block and a half to sink them ( I was using the old heavy type blocks that weigh about twice what the one at home depot weigh) . Tip. Crappie like vertical structure bass prefer horizontal structure If you can come up with a mix of both you will be ahead of the game.

  • The bad thing about Christmas trees and some tree branches is the only last a year or two unless you use cedar or oak. I’ve done multiple habitat improvement projects with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife and have found that 3/4” pex tubing like you’d use in pluming work well. We would dig shallow holes in the ground, stick a bunch of pieces of pex tubing (various lengths) then fill the hole with quick-crete. We also used PondKing structures on one project. Go check out my Instagram @joeywilley and @westslopeoutdoors to see a couple projects.
