Remake the trigger
I decided to remake the box trap trigger I made yesterday as I thought I could make one a little better then the first one. The new one is on the left and the little notches in it are the improvement as the notches are smaller and should be easier to set off by a critter and easier to set the trap.
Ready to go
The full container on the left was more then my sore right arm could left so I had to transfer some to another container so I could get the fuel into the dozer. That worked. One has to do thinks differently sometimes when one gets older if one wants to get stuff done that used to be simple when younger.
Today that green fern covered rock has to get removed as the old trail here is too narrow and needs to be widened out. I hope that rock will break up so I can move it. The big steel wrecker bar was brought up to do the job. I should of brought up a sledge hammer too as it would have made breaking up the big rock easier.
That rock turned out to be part of the whole mountain so I couldn’t move it, but had to break up into smaller pieces.
Working on it
Got dark on me
When I got home I went to close up the chickens for the night and found a young rooster dead by the gate to the pen.
I thought Tom’s fox must have been here just a bit ago.,,,,,,But.
It’s not the fox
Tom came by to tell me a hawk had killed the young rooster not the fox.
Buried the bird
I buried the dead rooster just like Tom buried his 50 dead birds He used his tractor though. I only needed a shovel.
Nice day in the forest, bad day for the rooster.
