    Property Dispute

    Good luck with it Frank. Shame it has turned in that direction. One thing I would be certain to do is to take many pics of the fence in question. If it has not been kept up and is not in a straight line, think you have a strong case for arguing the fence is not a maintained structure that follows the deed. Unfortunately no way you can know how long the guy has kept the fence.
  3. Yep, cook indirect on gas after searing and use a wood box directly over one of the burners, can get some real good flavor. Just did burgers last night with mesquite and a few pieces of charcoal in the box. Don't think I could ever justify the expense of a big green egg. That being said, with your metal skills Ross, surprised you have not made a home made cooker. No experience with pellet grills, like the idea of being able to use chunks of wood with anything wood burning since we have no shortage of hickory available. No idea for a brand suggestion, but would stay away from the uniflame stuff that walmart sells.
  4. Sorry to hear this Joe. Prayers on the way for you and your family.

    Hmmm, poster posted this from korea, figured it was spam before even looking at the thread. Cut and paste........... With that all being said, yeah the above content seems a person with common sense should see how far out of touch with reality the left is.

    Skeeters been very bad here this year already, and the gnats or whatever or face flies or whatever they are have been ridiculous. Maybe some of the local yote population will be hit with heartworms, but doubt it. Not had any ticks on me yet, but our dogs have picked up a few, to be expected really. My mom gave us a few avon skin so soft wipes that had picardin in them, those seem to work pretty well for deer flies.

    May 3 check-in

    Saturday is a parade day for our girls, so will be watching them march. Christina is bringing the baby over to visit Saturday afternoon and have other company also supposed to be coming, so will likely not get much done. Will need to mow sometime this weekend if it is dry enough. Need to figure out what I am doing with our 20+ year old above ground pool that is almost all the way drained. It needs a new liner, a new skimmer, new pump, sand redone, and probably more. May be time to just be done with it. Hate throwing money into it at this point.
  8. Could not see the link, took me to a facebook dead end, but the knife in the pic looks like an interesting piece.

    What if?

    Still have animals on our place, am outside working with the cows and keeping up our property, so pretty simple answer here for this on me. Yes. Have actually gotten into more other aspects of managing more recently with learning to trap and expanding from conibear/water kill traps I have been running for beaver for a few years now to land sets for yotes. Guess in a way it is in my blood. I never got to hunt with any of my family though with losing my dad when I was only 2. My grandfather was pretty big into fly fishing, a story I was told by a distant cousin about 20 years ago was that he fished with Lawrence Welk, I cannot verify that though. My aunt gave me some old turkey calls she said belonged to my grandfather years ago. Grandfather passed when I was 9 and did not really get to get close to him. My dad and his sisters were all pretty outdoorsy and into camping and boating and from what I was told of my father he liked to hunt and fish, and was a licensed scuba diver as well. Grew up being drug to lake Mead as a kid by my aunt(dad's oldest sister), would take a load of us kids out on her boat and then camping. Then later mom and my step dad would take us out boating regularly. Wish I could afford and justify a boat, great times I look back on. Still garden too. Don't have, to but nice to see the end result after putting in the work.
  10. When prepping to send my oldest and wife to Alaska to hunt 10 years ago I was assured that the .270 with 150 grain corelokts would be effective on black bear. Personally have no experience hunting bears but all I have been told and read on them echo what you say here that they are not difficult to kill. Have had a couple 700's and even done trigger jobs on them and never had a failure here either. Unfortunately only takes a few idiots to smear a company and risk loss of life by poor choices.
  11. Kinda surprised by the complaint on corelokts. While I know deer are not the same as a bear, had great results with 150 grain corelokts from a .270 on deer. Killed a lot of deer with 150 grain corelokts, never lost a single one. I reload now, but would not be afraid to take my old .270 with 150 grain corelokts for any animal the .270 is suitable for.
  12. Sure you will enjoy it Ross. Should be some fine eating.
  13. Yesterday Will, our youngest, turned 8. Wife took Allison to her band banquet yesterday evening. Have yard work today, and have Christina bringing our granddaughter over for us to babysit this afternoon while her and her Austin go to a movie.
  14. Good pic Don. Congratulations.
