Actually, you're right, Allen...it was a 9 point. Field-dressed, he weighed about 180 lbs...deer eat well around here.
I like venison, too, but I prefer a young doe for flavor.

I brought up the thread to post my new "rake"
Between the neighbor's poplar tree, the uncooperating wind that usually blows all the leaves out back, and that white wet stuff we had, I needed to do something with the leaves on the one side of my house because I don't think I'll get any more mows in this year .
A call to TSC, thirty bucks off because it's end of season , an hour to put together and an hour on the ATV and walla! You can see the leaves I had looking at the other side of the split rail fence that I didn't get to. These things really work. And I had fun! Of course if I had a SO in the house... I mean, it was real work

With your leaves... you gotta get you one of these, Suzi, but you do have to empty it a lot. And those wet leaves were HEAVY. The rope showing is merely for show. There was no way that was going to tilt the leaf bag to dump. Next time I'll rig it up to the winch

Oh believe me one is on "the list"!!! (long list)
Our neighbor has one ( I assume that's a yard vac) that's got a big bag on it so it holds a bunch... but we'd still be empying alot.
The first year we were here we attempted loading them up in a home made trailer with tall sides and dumping them all out back.
Yeah right.
We blow them under the trees around the property line now. In front at least. Much faster.
:)

No, tow behind vaccums were too much, unless you want a chipper too, this is a sweeper. It picks up all kinds of stuff, grass, pine needles, small branches... hopefully pine cones, too. And I'll sure try it out on those black walnuts when I get another season of them.

I wouldn't mind having one of those. I need an ATV or a riding lawn mower first. I've got a lot of leaves down. We've got several trees on and around the property. The only tree with leaves left on it right now is the sycamore. They just won't drop! I'll probably have to start blowing them here soon. I figure I'll blow most of them over to the burn pit and burn them, but some will get used for compost, as I plan to transfer my sage, lavender, and rosemary out of containers and into the ground this Spring.
