    Every thing back in the barn, tree cut into firewood and hauled, brush cleaned up, gates and fence fixed, still have 15' burned out stump to deal with later, waiting for cooler weather to finish that project. Time for a rest.
  2. They hunt hogs with pellet rifles. Good shot placement will get the job done with the pellet rifle. Eye or ear hole shot will solve the problem.
  3. Too far away to help, but reloading is not complicated. The Richard Lee 2nd edition hand loading book is a good place to start . Also has a lot of load data. Need to be detailed oriented and practice common sense. Should be some one close to help you out, good luck with your new endeavor. Reading is your friendly way to get the basic knowledge on how to reload.
  4. My personal choice in my Chiefs Special is two .360 dia round balls over a fast burning powder. Ten holes in five shots.

    Rough night, about 7 pm lighting struck a large dying oak tree about 20' from my large hay barn. Luckily only had 10 roll of hay in it. Old oak tree was hollow and the fire was spectacular as the fire blazed out of a few holes about 20 ft up. Pouring rain had to get one of my tractors with 15' bat wing mower out along with a 30" cotton wagon with my square bale accumulator and grapple on it. Got the tractor and cotton wagon and fuel tank out along with the 10 rolls of hay. Watched that sucker burn, after calling power company that it could possibly hit the power lines. Not much way to put out a fire in a large hollow tree. Sucking air from holes in the bottom was like a run away chimney fire. Fell about 11 pm and only grazed the power lines causing the lights to blink. Went down to check damage about 5 am, tree fell and crushed two 10 ft gates and knocked down the top fence wire. Luckily the cows cannot get through the big tree limb to get in the road. Hollow stump about 15 ft tall still burning. No damage to the barn, a couple hundred dollars for new gates and a lot of fire wood. Too much drama for a old guy. This old tree was a good 4+ ft in dia. Life is interesting and some times too exciting.
  6. Coyotes are hard to catch in a trap, hence the reason they are called wiley coyotes. Some of the larger cal air rifles will dispatch them, but are not cheap.
  7. We call it brulliousis in cattle. All breeding age female cattle are slaughtered if infected, or that is the way it was done back 20 years ago. They would hot brand a B on their jaw to mark them for slaughter. Nothing new about it, been around as long as animals.
  8. Maybe he had a brain fart and got lost or maybe he wanted to get lost.
  9. You can write the deed yourself, just copy the deed you were given and change dates, names etc. You have to state on the deed who prepared it also, or you can pay a lawyer a couple hundred bucks to do for you.
  10. Produce sounds good. Never had potatoes added to okra, tell us your recipe Corn bread and purple hull peas, good eats..
  11. Was watching a youtube video" Tales of the Gun", about the genius of John Moses Browning and how he converted a lever action rifle to shoot like a machine gun and how the potato digger machine gun was developed from his design. Some how this was a History channel Documentary and I had never watched it, also his history with Winchester and how they bought and used his designs. Interesting history, somehow that I missed out on. The man was a genius with gun designs.
  12. Stand your ground!!!!
  13. I do ladder loads, as little as .2 grains or as much as .5 grains using the same wgt. cast boolits and compare the results. Surprising how much difference .2 grs can make. I always keep the same seating depth and the same crimp. Every gun[barrel] has a sweet spot, just have to find it.
  14. His face always looked pained!!!!!!
