  • After Halloween my brothers and I will pick up all the whole pumpkins that people thrown out in their trash. We smash up the pum

    After Halloween my brothers and I will pick up all the whole pumpkins that people thrown out in their trash. We smash up the pumpkins with a machete or a hatchet at the bait pile so the deer can eat them. It is legal to bait deer in New Jersey. We also pick up discarded artificial green Christmas trees. We use the Christmas tree branches to camouflage our deer stands and they stay green all year round. My younger brother found a lock-on metal tree stand in the trash. My older brother found a big old ten point buck head mount in the trash. He cut the antlers off for rattling bucks. Does anybody else on this site trash pick and have you ever found anything good worth sharing.

        If anybody is too mortified to write they trash picked, did you ever get buy anything good at a "yard sale" that was good dealing with hunting, fishing, trapping, camping or anything related to the great outdoors.

            After reading Bubba's comment, I may get a job on a trash truck.

              I don't think it's worth it to go dumpster diving in the back of a garbage truck. I'll stop at a yard sale every now and then to see if they have anything old and nice. I usually pick up a few old lures and then put them in a shadow box to hang in the man cave. Never found anything worth more than a few dollars.

                I'm all in with garage sales. I've made quite a few good purchases. Got a set of nike irons in a nike bag for $35, they were a year old, the bag alone 100+. Guys son moved and left them behind. That was super lucky. Being in NY, hunting yard sale finds are pretty rare. I've never done the dumpster diving. That seems like a world I won't get into.

                  My brother and I had breakfast together at a local diner before putting out our bear baits.
                  The diner was pretty empty being early morning.

                  We asked our waitress to have the cook come out to talk to us since they were not that busy.
                  After we complemented the cook on his great breakfast, we asked him do you have anything good out in the dumpster or the trash. We feeding the bears and taking photos with are trail cameras. I showed the cook a couple bear photos with cubs. He was amazed that we got pictures were that close. He said help yourself and I just throw out bags of rolls this morning.

                  We drove around back to the large dumpster and found a large cooked pizza from the night before still sitting in the pizza box, two big trash bags of torpedo rolls, a large ham still cover in the clear package and clear bags of raw clams.

                  Bon Appetit for the Bears!

                    I use pumpkins and leftovers in front of my trail cams. Rolls and bagels too. Deer seem to love rice. no bear photos yet in S.Jersey but I hear rumors.
