I got some buddies (non-hunters) who have apple trees in their yards, and hate hitting them with the mowers. I volunteered to take them (for bait pile of course), but WHAT is the best thing to store them in??? I thought just 5 gal buckets, but I only have so many of those. Maybe burlap sacks??? Any apple farmers out there or anyone who baits with apples know what might be best? I don't want to dump them all at once, but I don't want them to rot in storage either...

THanks!

If you got a big deep freeze, put them in wal-mart sacs and freeze them till you want them. Around here, if I tried to store them outside of my home, they'd get broken into by mask wearing varmits.

In NC we get them by the trailer load and just leave them in the trailer,we park it in the barn so its not in the sun. No problems.Also Have found that the deer like them better if you step on them when you throw them out,makes it much easier for them to eat'em,they will eat the busted ones before the whole ones.Dont mash'em flat just enough to bust them open.
