Looking to buy tree tubes

I need some tree tubes. Looking for a good source of used tree tubes if anyone knows of one, I'd appreciate the heads up.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

How many depends on the price I suppose. I have a place I am gonna hack and squirt a ton of small beach trees and tube the many white oaks sprouts that are getting hammered by deer every winter. I don't have an exact count but could use 50 -100 if the price was right. I'd prefer 4 footers or longer. I'm not wealthy but will invest in that spot for future timber for my children and a nice stand of oaks to hunt maybe before I'm called to the happy hunting grounds for good.

Marcus I have seen areas like that too, shame someone doesn't clean that up eh? lol

You really want 5' to keep the deer off..4' will require something to protect the next foot. Learned the hard way at home and camp..

I have used 4 footers before. I prefer 5's but anything will get them up above knee high. I get heavy winter browsing where they are located and by spring there are no trees, by fall there are ankle high trees. I have watched these trees for two seasons, gonna try and save them this year.

Your best bet is to troll Craigslist for lightly used tubes.

If you want to buy new, this was generally the best pricing I found, about a year ago. Shipping is the real expense.

Thank you Chuckalope, I just got home with a truck bed full of them I bought from your lead. I got the entire lot for $40 bucks, there is easily 150 tubes here. I had to buy a cargo net to put over them to keep them from falling out of the truck.
