Dry dirt help

I been running twice as many fox sets than I usually do. Now im out of dry dirt. What is the best way of making waxed dirt? I started using peet moss, but I since got a prob with diggers. It's just to soft and I think it would be a lot better when mixed with dry dirt. Has anybody ever used the microwave to make dry dirt?

Re: Dry dirt help

You could try looking under a bridge for dry dirt.

Re: Dry dirt help

I use a cheep electric roster set on 450 deg and stir often. I get about 40 lb. per. load. When the dirt is dry and hot add some wax for waxed dirt.

If I put dirt in the oven, I would be looking for a new place to sleep. That is if I made it out of rifle range.

Put the dirt on cheap cookie sheets. I have done it with dirt and my wife has not killed me.
