Old Farmers Almanac saying;
“See how high the hornet's nest, 'twill tell how high the snow will rest”
That's a twelve foot 4x4 leaning against the tree. I figure it's about 30 feet up.

For those older folks (John *.?-!.* cub owner) who may have a hard time picking it out, even with the arrows....... Those hickory nuts above and to the right are about the size of tennis balls by the way.

$75-. Had I known. Couple years ago I got nailed by a couple of hornets. Looking around there was a huge nest under the eves of the hay barn. Hornet spray and then knocked down the nest, stomped it good - just getting even.
I have an excuse. CRS.

When it turns cold, get your 22 rifle and shoot(cut) the limb off about a foot on each side. Problem solved.

We ride the river in winter, they are easier to see when there is no leaves, and get them.

I doubt your TRUCK will get you far enough away to feel comfortable with this project.

Rabbit Holler Flash's home is just a few yards from that, and I was thinking that if I slipped just up the hill behind his house in the truck and waited till he came out the door and then put a round or two into the nest by shooting right over him. it ought to be fun to watch. :lol:

Several years ago I drove 120 miles to the Cub Tug and decided to put my awning out. After looking up I changed my mind. This thing rode all the way with us at 70 miles an hour and there were still residents at home when we arrived.
