Retired FDNY Lieutenant Kevin Shea helps bait an area at a ranch in Texas in preparation for a pig hunt there.
Okay this isn't the bridge that we're -- this week. But this is -- -- we'll glance yeah. Thought the ball in Texas. -- I'm back and forth but some other guys and what we're doing is -- this side. At least that. Decide -- -- In preparation when the guys come to hunt next week and we're using this Gator. And -- -- you've seen this before. A way of spreading to feed which is by deer corn. And fair enough fair hit the button while -- drive and and that spreads the court. Recording these roads that's the joke in Texas the word corn is actually -- -- to to corn the road that. -- recording this. -- -- also going to do what they call making -- bombs and we'll dig a hole. -- -- you that in a few minutes and we'll -- with -- and some guys have all different concoctions. You don't make a mixer banished. Tremendous blitz of the year K -- milk and let it sit in plastic bucket for a couple days in the sun. Everybody has their own mix some guys are using strawberry and yellow powder and -- all kinds of stuff that's hilarious when guys come up -- And to try and get the bounds takes the -- area and so by putting this corn up and down the road -- It's not trying to stop them as if cheating when they come out at ninety feet on the road you -- this -- longer road trying to get them. Otherwise we used the -- bombs in the big piles to try to get them on the was sitting and Graham -- Lot times out of work at night we put a light on the bottom of the ground line and hopefully come. But this sure is a beautiful beautiful area. Here then that's the are clear talk of the Grasso -- river bridge. That's the river bottoms that we can't. OK I just pulled up to. One of -- sites that we have -- -- with those -- -- house talking about. So I'm going to take a look -- See what it went looks like yeah. -- your typical setup. OK so there's a Gator. -- -- some of the roads on the way here. And the way this was initially set up. It is here is the -- feeder for. And if you look goalie over there. And about a hundred yards away. Is shooting box so what they do here Texas is they use -- feeders to shoot the year. But for us we're not doing that we're bow hunting -- -- So we are using the we filled this -- feeder. And when -- -- not too much it's it's just spring a little bit of corn that's -- put out this morning. And this baby is set to go off that. 7:30 in the morning and 6:30 in the evening. So a little bit of -- -- trickled -- has not been eaten yet. There's a light a motion detector light -- three arms on it. Send satellite and the use -- green lines they say the green doesn't bother me animals much I don't know. Probably some into some agreements is. And there. Is pop up line. It's only about twelve yards off this. Bottom feeder and that -- -- -- check committed. And there's a game camera so the game camera doesn't just show me. Who's coming in if anybody. But we will give them time and didn't want -- little SD card but. So. Here is for her judicial watchers. And -- the compound guys. If they want they can use that natural. One pile to about twenty. I think it was 244 yards to the -- did a little bit stretch it to me. Victory -- along by trying stay at. About twenty yards or less and here. This -- got smashed. Those pigs. Smashed his baby -- Odyssey. So. Now I'm gonna do what isn't going to from. But -- the car and cameras see what's going on when that comment and I'm gonna refill as bait and I'll show you -- -- -- -- -- that they. OK I just checked the camera. And it has been some activity. And they did -- -- be pretty good but it was just. Last night so the sat for a couple days that really getting hit hard. And -- make the big pile amusing. This container -- old chicken fat and it. And I Puerto top of the mix of some corn and oats did -- throw that. Piece of -- there on the top of it so dear don't just come meet the whole thing will throw. You'll see later as -- show you some more beats. There will throw. Rocks are big heavy branches across the whole. This way the the pigs can move it but the other animals won't coming -- -- before they get here. So let's go check a few more -- this is one of my favorite spots this went stayed with. Range. As you can see from the last time -- put a mountain these two -- got really hammered. That hole. And look at that hole. And these are. The same. Date spots that I had used last year and the year before and I soda pop up lined to right over there by that tree. So. I won't be back here for another week. And either later today or tomorrow when -- set of pop up blank here today get them acclimated to the blind being here. But down this is could -- be a good spot. Have some friends come and hunt with me and put them here every shot takes. So he is it -- -- 8000 gonna make and here. You can see Haiti trusting trail is the road -- -- corn on the way in. They keep -- on the way out. And here. Look at this -- trail -- trail. Right and the offense and I just -- some. Take care what defense here it is another one. -- -- -- -- So they are crossing in a regular basis so look to diplomatic corner -- them last time. And we are -- to you. Yeah. Here so this big sky and -- my -- said before and the I'm refilling. Hopper with corn and friends gonna help me -- will lift that rack up there and couple pieces of wood but took that put him in that date pile so. This deer and raccoons or what have you small rodents won't get the -- I mean look at the corn excuse me. He'll be just that takes. And I'll show you when I'm done.
