That's why I stopped using liquid filled tires.

It takes four times longer to fix a flat and then you have to pay to get the tires refilled.

All of that assumes that you can get a 200-400 pound tire off the tractor and into a truck to start with.

I'll stick with wheel weights.

I was mowing around thorn tree's that I left in the feild from last year, those things are bruttel. I ended up haulin them to the back corner so as that don't happen agian. couldn't drag them or that would be like making a mine field of thorns , but my homemade forks work great for that task, look at pics. Plots are fair but we need rain badly,hope it comes soon before they burn up

I have heard thorns can be pretty wicked on tires. We have a kind of crab apple here that gets thors 3-4" long. Very unpleasent buggers. I was starting to wonder what happened to you. I got the area preped with 23a yesterday for the new deer blind that should be here in the next two weeks. I went with the Mustang fiberglass blind. We have been haveing a fair amount of precip in the last two weeks thankfully as my crops were just about fryed.

Sorry to hear that Plots1. Definitely a Bummer! If that problem keeps up; have you thought about mounting some aircraft tires that have a 10 ply rating? A lot more puncture resistant.

Well to tell the truth this one is for the big boss. I am going to hunt the cedars this year. Its funny you mention sleeping. This past season was the first I have ever owned my own property. I was just so glad to be on my own land I spent a few days snoreing. oh well. Bye the way thats a fine looking piece of property you have. I expect to see some photos of the big buck soon !

Doc is that 23 acers you prepped for plot work? If so that's going to be a major dinner for them.

2 to 3 acres maybee. I spent all winter burning to clear that much. We had the dozer guy out this weekend. We are going to open several more acres this winter. I would like my main field about 5 acres. I have a bumper crop of grouse this year which I am very pleased about but the turkeys are really scarce which is dissapointing. Not as much deer sign as this damn bear has moved back in. Need a bear rug ?
