Full Moon: All is Still

May 31, 2013

Necessity is the mother of invention, and that is certainly true for Don Gresham.  He had a problem with feral hogs tearing up his ranch, and decided to try a new approach to catching them.  He began using a portable pen, a feed broadcaster, and a wildlife camera.  He and his son discovered that even with evidence of a previous night's hunt, the animals still came into the pen.  They thought they could be onto something that would help other ranchers dealing with the same pest, and started to market it.  A buddy of Don's developed an ap for smart phones to monitor the trap from any location, and Goin Fencin was born. 

However, now that Don has traps placed on ranches all over the south, he has made an interesting discovery.  While observing hogs, he has noticed that all wildlife seems to move at the same time, no matter where they were physically located.  Also, contrary to popular thought, the full moon is the worst time in the world for movement.  Animals move prior and after, but not on the full moon.  To learn more about Don's invention, you can go to: goingfencin.com.
