    Beagle Shot while hunting

    it wasnt working because they hadnt been trained to do it. thats my point if you wait till the dog is in danger to teach it you waited to long we trained them because of roads but if you wait till they are running across the road its to late.

    Beagle Shot while hunting

    have had some great beagles that call and hit the tone on the collar and they would come right back. I promise it can be trained most people dont because they think it will ruin the dog. Or they just dont want to put in the time.

    Beagle Shot while hunting

    I find it odd many on this thread that are ready to fight are the same ones yelling SSS when dogs are running loose on there deer lease. cant have it both ways. by no means do I condone the shooting of the dog but hopefully the hunters learned a lesson on teaching their dogs to come when...

    Home Made Bacon

    this is how I used to to mine. then the price of pork bellys went thru the roof. when it cost my $60 for a pork belly I quit but had a hog butchered this fall and have belly in the freezer so I need to get them out and do some again.

    Does anyone use red dots?

    guess im the odd one on this. have had one on for a few years and took it off. it does help if head alignment isnt perfect but put your cheek down and make a good shot and no need for one. I had one I couldn't shoot because battery died that morning. I am a Keep It Simple kinda guy.

    UK basketball

    far from irrelevant he did a much better job getting the ball back out to the shooters when the double team came. after the last game with foul trouble he seamed very hesitant on defense and cost them some points but overall he played very well.

    Bartender ....pour another round.

    awesome glad he was able to get out. do you have a plucker or do it by hand? have tried the drill mounted ones but cant find one that does a good job.

    we will add on a bit this year to add a quarter acre of melons: water, cantaloupe, and honeydew. other than that will keep the rest the same 100-125 tomatoes, 300ish peppers, okra, eggplant, herbs, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.

    Well went on a duck hunt and a goose shoot broke out. Only 2 ducks showed and the drake didn’t like something. 6 geese came in only 2 got away.

    Bartender ....pour another round.

    Sometimes a solo hunt is fun. We are scratching a duck here and couple geese there but this water should help along with the cold snap in the forecast. Nobody had faith in this spot since there hadn’t been a bird on it in 3 weeks but me and the pup decided a hunt with just the two of us would be...

    Biden signs same-sex marriage bill

    there is a simpler way to handle this. Quit issuing marriage licenses and get rid of any tax code that involves marriage. when the government quits making money off of marriage or giving tax breaks for it then they could care less who gets married. then any two people can find someone to...
