Finally got my hill looking good

Postby buckcrazy » Thu May 10, 2018 7:09 am

Now I have to wait to build my cabin but at least I’ve got the hill graded out where I’ll be putting it. My plan is coming together slow but sure. Will be installing 1900’ of waterline to connect to city water in the next few weeks. Still have to setup a skinning rack lean to next to the shed, build my pier and build one small bridge. I also finally got around to building a guillotine hog trap door this week so I’ll be going to setup my corral trap next weekend. Want to get my road graded a little better and get some more gravel or #57 limestone put down and 2 or 3 culverts down. The plan is coming together!!
These pics are a before and after of the hillside. Pretty different looking!!

Looks great. What kind of fish is in the pond? Is it stocked?

We’ve caught some decent size bass and some bluegills in it. We didn’t stock it when we bought the land so the fish have been there for a while I suppose. The previous owners said they never stocked it as long as they had it which was 30 years. All I know is they have some fish in it. I’m going to stock 3,000 bluegill and 50 bass next month or so.

This a couple my cousin caught in the pond a while back. Decent size but could use some more feeder fish in there so that’s why I’m throwing some small bluegill in. They’re healthy looking though

I don’t think so. They are a hybrid perch and get over a pound each. Looks like giant bluegill but have a copper colored nose

Looks real good! It's a lot of work but it's also a lot of fun to fix up a property the way you like it.
I have been working on my new home place for the last year and a half. Good to see progress over time.
