    Quote:Yup, even in the red clay here. I did use a back hoe and the holes were 12 feet deep. I learned my lessons well when in the employ of good ole Uncle Sam in the 60's. I would have liked putting some goodies in the bottom, but the sheriff was against that.

    Nice job man. My gut hurts from laughing so hard. This should
    be a Predator sticky. What makes it even better is the sheriff
    went along with it. You can't make this stuff up, [​IMG]

    Too funny, your sheriff neighbor will have quite a tale to tell at the next law enforcement meeting, too bad weren't home to get pictures.

    Congrats! Bet he felt like a dummy sitting at the bottom of that hole until the sheriff came to check on him.

    Nicely done.

    Well sounds like your girls deserve treats...they did their civic duty by luring the criminal to the pit. [​IMG]

    Well done!
