Default Shed Trap Worked!!

So, if anyone is like me out there who wants to maximize their finds, this might be helpful. I have spent the past 5/6 years looking for sheds. I can not tell you how many miles I have walked looking for them, but as we all know, we won't find them all. So, I came up with an idea. Last weekend, I walked around our property looking for old fence lines left over from when my great grandfather used the same property for cows. Well, since the fence posts were loose due to age, i pulled them where the fence was at a 45 degree angle. Then, I poured corn at the base of the fence where when deer go for the corn, there heads will bump along the fence to get to the corn. I am going to keep these areas (about 5 of them) full of corn over the next few weeks (thru march) and see how it works out.

I've been thinking about doing this also. A co-worker told me to use chicken wire. He said to take a roll of it and attach the roll to some stakes in the ground. Then spread the corn inside the roll of wire.

That's a nice shed.

Nice shed. I used the same concept, but built a feeder in order to use it:
