They are up off the ground, and love mosquitoes. I tossed in a few worms, and they fight for them. I believe they would eat any bug that moves. And any that fly into the cage are snapped up pretty quick, even the big fly's.
Could you give what kind / size truck they would be on?
For my Chevy 2500HD CC SB the Firestone Transforce AT have been the best, 55,000+. I have tried the Transforce HT and General Grabber AT2 and they didnít wear as long. The Grabber AT2 had great winter traction but didnít make it to 35,0000
Here is how I train homing pigeons for free flight. For the first week you have the young homers every time you feed them make a consistent noise. You can whistle, shake a can of feed or say anything you want as long as it stays the same. They will associate the sound with being fed and this will be your feed call.
The second week place a cage on the outside on your landing board, so that the pigeons can only enter the loft, not fly away. Put the pigeons in the cage wait a couple of minutes for them to settle down and then do the feed call and feed them. They will try to get in to get the feed and thus learn how to trap into the loft. Do this every day.
The third week, if all is going well, skip their feed for a day, but give them water and an hour before dark put them on the board. Slowly remove the cage, so that you do not startle them, enter the loft, do the feed call and feed them. They should immediately enter. If they do not they should still try to get back in to sleep in the loft.
Do this every other day, but give them half of what they will eat in the morning and the rest when they enter during the training in the evening.
The fourth week if all is going well, skip there feed and in the evening put them on the board remove the cage and stand back and watch them for half an hour before calling them in. They may enter right away at first, but eventually they will start circling around and landing on higher perches.
Always make sure they are slightly hungry when you fly them and that they have food waiting for them in the loft.
Once they start routing, flying in big circles out of sight, put them in the cage you will release them from and let them go in several different places in your yard. This acclimates them to being in the cage.
If this is going well start releasing them at about 1 mile away from all different directions.
Slowly increase the distance you release them at until you have them trained out the distance you want them to fly.
They can ban fur all they want-animal populations will need to be managed and animals will die one way or the other. However,instead of having a useful product/profession that contributes to the economy,it will be nuisance animal control that will be a drain on the taxpayer and the waste of a potentially valuable renewable resource.
Your about 150-170 miles from the water in San Antonio, when you say gulf do you mean you want to go deep sea fishing in the actual gulf or inshore for like trout and redfish. Deep sea fishing private charters are pretty expensive $1500-2000 for 6 people or you can find a head/party boat that usually has 20-40 people on it for around $60-100 a person. Inshore guides will be around $600-800 for 3-4 people if your pricing stuff
The Huntsman spider definitely looks crab like. I have been hungry for crab lately and saw some scorpions on TV and wondered how they tasted too. I have seen a lot of travel shows, where people eat scorpions, but no one ever describes how they taste. The Hunstman's legs, look big enough to suck the meat out of like a crab's legs.
I need to find a good place around here to catch crayfish. I had fantastic places to catch crayfish, close to where I grew up.
Not a fan of Treager for grilling it just does not get hot enough to sear the meat and do a good crust on it. It does work well for slow cooking at lower temps though but for sure not for grilling meat.
