lithium grease works way better... it doesn't evaporate.
And it's much mo' better to find out before they rot:
My favorite pit "cover" is simply grass bundles:
And the only roll-top I can stand is designed and grassed such that those inside can see out, but birds can't see in:
It ain't no fun I tell ya when us Yankees go down there to hunt with you and you shove us in those pits with the covers we can't watch the birds. Just keep ur head down and I'LL tell ya when you can stand up and shoot. And don't move a muscle either! See the thing is, we are used to hunting them birds up here at the upper end of the flyway where they ain't wised up yet. Long as you can sit still and your face doesn't shine you can watch the birds up here. Oh, and some of us yanks call at 'em just fine thank you very much!
Pit lids dressed and ready for battle. This is what I referenced earlier.......no flipping, sliding of lids. Just stand and shoot.
Been pumping this past week and in good shape for opener in 2 weeks. Gonna hold off on putting remaining water on as don’t need the birds getting too much of the goodie, too early!!!
I could live my life without another beef steak if cows wouldn't exist
Looks like what we call "salt grass". I've a grandson from the deep marsh (until Laura took their house out) who sells tons of it, both dug clumps and bundled, for blind dressing this time of year.
Rick, most around here call it ripgut or johnson grass...…….not really sure what the actual scientific name for the stuff is. It does hold up well over the season and if you can find it clean (meaning not mixed with stuff that has any weedy stuff with seed heads mixed in it is ideal). Can't stand having seeds, burrs etc. falling down the back of my shirt. Made the horrific mistake of tying foxtail on blind tops years ago and I think I'm still picking that stuff out of my camo clothing and butt crack!!!
Up here we end up with them two-prong burs attached to every#%@^%thing.
They fall off after a few days but if you go daily just learn to love em.
As earlier mentioned we get away with murder up here or used to. Ducks have wised up big time and ive had to adapt and hunt like im in arkansas.
Drives the locals mad because well... see above comment.
