We can rebuild
« on: February 27, 2018, 07:55:23 PM »
A few years ago I built a wooden box blind out of salvaged pallets, privacy fence panels, and deck wood. Since then I have killed a bunch of turkeys out of this blind:

Including this one and several others last December:

Well, a tornado went through here last Saturday night near the farm where the blind was, so I went out this morning to see how it had weathered the storm.

Turns out, not so well!  :sad2:

Honey locust also know as thorny locust.

Good rot resistant wood but dang dangerous to work near a live tree.

I have fell severzl and don't like working with them one bit. But the wood sure is purty.
Don't bring shame to our sport.

He died for dipshits too.

They have the black flat banana shaped seed pods on them. When they fall off, coyotes and coons eat the crap out of them around here.

Mr. JohnP,

I had maybe thirty bucks in that thing. If the government pays to have it rebuilt it will cost at least twenty thousand.   :alscalls:
