    He most likely traveled a lot of miles to get here, a lot of things could happen on that trip.

    Newer to this. Tried a few things.... I’m far from getting these perfect & im still learning.
    for licking branches that are strong.... I used hedge (Osage orange) branches. Used some deck screws or few different ways to fasten em down. strongest branches out there. Some I mixed lots of grape vines in (zip tied up higher) or hung the grape vines lower. I did use mostly white pine since got those from storm. & used 6” pvc about 3’ deep with cement so I can swap em out as needed over the years (screws to secure post). Here’s few examples. Sorry on the lower quality images but pry get idea.

    Last one needs some vines hanging down more I think. On some- fastened branches to side or drilled inside tree. Some- fastened on top pretty tight. See which one works.

    Been hitting this pine rub like crazy. Making scrapes all under it. Tons of bucks. Need to add vines hanging down lil more. Love these things. Cool pic.
