We just tried our first "blowout" (post hole filled with corn, topped with strawberry jello powder) this past week. Wow, after only two nights they both looked like a bomb crater! My BIL put the blowout in place on Monday night. By the time we hunted Friday night the corn was pretty well cleaned up and we didn't contact any hogs that night. Thinking now that we may go to the pipe or barrel trick.
So she says "sure Honey, I agree, you DO need a new deer rifle..." And that, boys, is how I ended up with new living room furniture!
