Charlie,  I haven't seen one of those single row corn pickers for about 40 years.  I grew up on a small farm in north central Iowa were my father would pick out about 50 acres of corn with one of those every year.  He never had much trouble with it,  good maintenance is the answer.  Good Luck,   Charlie

Well, got to try it out..........some.  Picked corn by hand since the wildlife and excessive rain destroyed a good portion of it.  I ended up using the picker to husk the corn, it worked surprisingly well.

I couldn't even guess on that yet.  I haven't shelled it yet and will be storing it in a crib to dry further before shelling. I'd be surprised if I even have one, when I should have got an estimated 180 off that size feild.  Needless to say, I'm very disappointed in the yeild. Actually, what corn come up, produced well, then came the deer......... :x .   I'm still shocked as to how much they destroyed.  Here's a picture of ALL of it after coming off of the husking bed:

And no.........that is not a gravity wagon!!!!    Your eyes do not decieve you!  That is my sons ATV trailer!!!!  Took about 3 hrs for me to collect that pitiful pile of corn by hand.  I think we had more sweet corn than that in our lousey garden.

Is that embarrassing or what?

At least it wasn't a shock to me.  After watching it deteriorate from opposing forces for the past few months, I'm actually surprised there is that much.  They seem to have let up for a spell and I noticed they (deer/coon) were now starting to hit very hard again. So I figured I better get what I could, while I could, before the rain hit and got it wet again. Another week or so at the rate they were cleaning me out, I doubt there would have been anything at all.

Several hundred dollars spent getting $15 worth of corn!!  Maybe I can sell my equipment to birdlover17?

Picking it by hand left the stalks standing of course (what's still standing), so the gamebirds and critters will have a place to run and root around in all winter with some cover. I had some millo and millet amongst some of the corn in the field, a little has survived thus far. Deer ate practically all of it too.

                                                                                                          s47

Lesson of the day:   Don't pick field corn with bare hands, unless you like your corn covered with blood.   :-o

Charliehorse look at it on the bright side ...that deer meat that you are going to put in the freezer will be well fed so I would say that you did a smart thing. s98

Join the club Charlie, I had worse results once from a 4 acre patch, same predators. Only good I got out of it was turning the family cow into it. She cleaned up the stalks.

Would like to see that one row picker, we had one pulled by four horses behind a jig cart, the whole clan thought it was quite a thing.  I forget the make, it was red.  I was miffed because my grandfather wouldnt let me drive the team, I was all of eight and drove the team pulling the little newer spreader. 

At that time in NY if you started getting that kind of crop loss the DNR would give you a permit to take some of the pressure off. It didnt really help a lot.

Steve , I also have noticed the poetic side of Reeves, he has such a way with verse.

Thanks Jake, it was purely experimental this time, so I didn't expect anything I guess.

 s20   Since when does being "full of it" become poetic?   s47  It must have started with this presidential election?    :grin:
