actually the buzzards will have a gut pile gone in about an hour. no sign that something died there. I know it doesn't sound to good, but i had to change my thought process alittle also. I got this property for hog eridication, it is a target rich environment and we are over run with hogs in Florida. so you take the pick of the good eating hogs and dispose of the rest. still have more people to give hogs to. but at some point their freezers will be full also. The shelters down here will NOT take wild hogs. Leaves me in a quandry what to do with them all.I would think just a couple of gut piles would serve well as bait for the yotes.
