    My poor deer are not experiencing the pampered life I try to provide. Thinking a solar tank heater?

    It’s hard being a creature of habit. Dang, there was just water here a few days ago…

    I’ve looked into solar water heaters for the Canadian fishing camp. There are some places that offer a DC heating element that retrofits an existing AC element in a standard electric water heater. The DC element can take power directly from solar panels and heat water with it during the high-sun times of the day and then store the hot water for later use. But unfortunately, that won’t work for a stock tank application that has to be kept warm all the time.

    6 days I have sat out here trying to convince these deer they need to wear an orange vest…. This guy refused. Gun went off and he had a ❤️ attack. I care so much we bright him to the house and did a biopsy to determine cause for death

    Bad things happen to good deer all the time. It’s sad…

    Unfortumately the owner wouldn’t let me dig it it so I improvised the best I could this year to make it blend in. Didn’t take long for them to flock to it daily. Can see they still want water, or they enjoy hoof skating LOL
