My husband and sons are hunters ( so don't read this if you are not into hunting LOL) My 13 yrs old got his first deer with a bow & arrow this past weekend. Well my husband does all his own prossessing anyway . The YUK as I will put it he dumped on the very far end of the farm. OH of course my dalmation found it and dragged it up to the house which I didn't know at first grrrrr. The Westies found it also!! When my husband got home he buried it deep. Now the dogs are muddy trying to redig it up !!! My question is what do I do !!! they are not gonna quit?? is there anything that I can put over the dirt that would kill the smell ?? Jubilee
I don't know about wild animals in the area where you live, but where we live, when my husband and step father go hunting, they put the entrails at the far end of my step father's property and let the wild animals get it. Maybe when you husband and son come back from hunting, put the dogs on a leash for a day or so so that they cannot get to it. Once the wild animals have eaten it all, then let them roam again. Another option is invest in a good trash can that has lids that latch on. They're like 30 bucks where I live. Put the entrails in a bag, and then the bag in the trash.
ya we did put the Yuk on the far end of the property. the westies ussually don't go that far. But the dalmation brought it up to the house LOL. Now that the smell has been on the yard they just followed the smell to the back part of the farm??? yes ussually the wild animals take care of it like huntermom said. but I was wondering if moth balls would throw off the scent ?? Jubilee
I've heard moth balls are poisonous to dogs? Anyone know if it is? I would seriously just get a good trash can. That way it's out of the way, you don't have to bury it or keep the dogs away, and since the lid latches on, other animals can't get it either. You could also put gasoline or lighter fluid on the YUK as you put it..hehe...and catch it on fire. Do you guys burn your trash where you live? A lot of people on farms around us burn their trash. Put it in a barrel and burn it. Might be smelly if there is any hair...lol
I have two Beagles and nothing will stop them from staying on a scent for weeks even. But one thing that will help is to put some hydrated lime ( you can get this in the gardening department of most stores) and spread it over the entrails or burial sight, this neutrializes the odor so it will not have a scent any more. I know what you are going through I live in the country where there are tons of hunters and my dogs are always bringing in parts of dead animals and leaving them in the yard!
Yes we burn our trash. It has been dry the last 2 weeks so I have not been buring as all around us Feilds of dry CORN ( a forest fire just waitin to happen). my husband wasn't THINKING when he threw it back there?? Maybe dumb question but why put it in a contained garbage can ?? I know it isn't summer but that is gonna ROT and I will have every wild animal in a 5 mi. raduis coming to check out my garbage can stew LOL I was wonderin if moth balls were OK ?? So I will definately NOT use them. Bostonbabies Thanks I will try the Lime thing that is what I was wondering if there was any natural things that would at least help . I know what ya mean about the beagles hallin all kinds of dead goodies up . We had a Lab that used to find the darndest things. Jubilee
oh by the way Allie ... Eeeeeeeewwwwww is right not something that I like to see first thing in the morning. Scout went shoppin for some nose plugs for the westies but the PUGS are gonna be a problem :0) Jubilee
