Nick had scored two 55 gallon barrels of bait.  One full of frosting, and the other of mixed goodies (nuts, gummies, graham crackers, trail mix, granola, etc.)

Chris hollowed out a log with his chainsaw.  This is where we are placing the bait.  On top of the hollowed out log, he puts a board and then a heavy container to keep the raccoons out.

I will be refreshing the bait daily.  As I do, I will post the pictures here for everyone to enjoy.
