Be ready for field repairs

Every bowhunter’s worst nightmare is to have equipment issues in the field. Regular maintenance can greatly reduce the chances of this happening, but there is always a possibility. An errant broadhead can easily cut a string or cable, and brush or rocks can fray them as well. Servings can slip, causing nock-point movement and poor arrow flight.

Toxic bait for feral hogs

Kaput is the brand name of a toxicant approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for use as a lethal bait for feral hogs. According to the label, the active ingredient in Kaput is Warfarin, an anticoagulant medication sold under the brand name Coumadin. Not much information, I know, but enough for us to understand that Kaput kills when consumed by hogs AND wildlife.

Helping your deer herd

I sit down to write this installment of Happy Trails after spending yesterday morning in the deer woods of southwest Mississippi, attending to tasks associated with supplemental feeder sites and salt/mineral stations. It was hot and humid and horse flies the size of nickels were buzzing around our heads, but other than that it was a fun and interesting time. It was an outing that was all about preparation for the upcoming hunting season. If you are not already thinking about and preparing for this coming fall and winter, you should be.
