My property is 550 x 1710 and I wouldn't want one to jump the fence and die on the neighboring property on either side of me.................My days of going up into the mountains on horse back (4 of us would go in about 7 miles from the end of the "East fork Road".)...set up a tent camp (same spot every year---for 19 years: 1981/2000)...had a corral (built the first year) and usually stay 7 to 10 days...................well those days are gone for me------this old body and all the fractures from those early, early days in the 1950's, just can't handle it--------plus, buried the last horse several years ago.

Let me know how that Crank Device works out.
Is on order. They were in stock so shouldn't take long. I will let you know how it works.

Howdy Again,
Well, looks like we will be moving again. YEP, AGAIN. We will be moving up to Chickamauga, Georgia this time. Up in the mountains about 15 miles from Chattanooga, TN. My brother is helping us move. Got us a 3bdrm 2 ba mobile home for 400 month. Only thing is .. it is NO PETS.. so have had to rehome all of my pets.
At least it will be nice and quiet there and the views are awesome. Have a nice view of Lookout Mountain from the front porch. SO tired of moving. I feel like a yo yo. Seems like as soon as we unpack... its time to move again. Hopefully we will stay put this time.
IT is in a trailer park (again) but the owner of the park doesnt tolerate a bunch of BS, loud music, or junk piled up outside and there is no drug traffic! yay!!!! Well maintained area. Trailers are far enough apart that you dont feel closed in and it is a very small park. Enough up in the mountains and woods that deer occasionally roam the area. And a few other critters. Just hope the snakes stay away.
Thats about all the news I have for now.
Hope everyone is doing well. Hugs.

What a weekend!

Had about 2 hours of nice weather for antelope hunting, then the rest of Saturday and all of Sunday it rained on us!
The ground turned into a swampy morass, 4 wheeling at it's finest with roostertails of mud flying from all four wheels, and that was going down the county road!! I have a bright red truck, now it's kind of a tanish brown. I had to scrape off the taillights just to go down the highway as they were completely covered so you couldn't see them. Ran through 1 jugs of washer fluid for the windshield.
Walking in that crud meant your feet weighted 20 lbs each as the clay soil stuck to your shoes so you had these great globs for feet.

No dry places to sit and glass, constant cold winds up to about 30 MPH making it tough to shoot and driving that rain like icy shot pellets into your face and eyes.

Damn it was fun!!

Managed to take my buck with a shot of nearly 300 yards, one shot. The wife shot a nice 3 - 4 year old buck out of my father's house herd, one shot at 50 yards.

Got about 100 lbs of meat between them. Good start to the seasons.

Huntin' Season, gotta love it

Sometimes that kind of weather makes hunting better, not easier, but better. ;-)

I love the penalty clause.

Something that was submitted in Wyoming, should be passed Federally. All bills will be single subject and will have no rider legislation.

You betcha! multiple subjects and riders (and worse, gut-and-amend as is commonly practiced in some states *cough* California *cough* so the final product shares neither words nor subject with the nominal topic of the bill) are how we reached the library-sized battery of conflicting and sometimes downright insane legislation we suffer from today.

Just finished making salsa. A couple people been bugging me that they wanted some hotter stuff. So that was in mind while making it. So, once I was done, I grabbed a teaspoon and tried it. Now, that teaspoon wasn't full, I was just sampling it. I am setting here pumping blue water out of my forehead and cheeks. I think I lost track of reality for a few seconds. Timber likes salsa and likes to sample it, but for some reason I can't find her. She was right here, just before I blacked out. Now I need to can it. That shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. This batch should make about 10 pints. I used 3, 26.5 oz cans of jalapenas, and three plastic cartons of habinaros. Really good batch. Now, if my ears would stop ringing...... I should regain sight at any time......

Need to fix fence this afternoon. When I was feeding the horses this morning, I noticed they had one of the panels leaned over.

Ha! Ha! Ha! Just what I was thinking. Poor Elk thought it was the horse because he was laid out flat and unconscious from the blast.
