Here is a picture from my spring camera. Look at the picture and see what's going on. You've got 4 adult does and one fawn. There are very few fawns on that mountain, and not many deer total. The DNR sets our season dates and bag limits, but lo

I don't know as much about bear as I'd like to either, they are an interesting animal. Talking about Frank's bear pictures, one other thing that I was looking at is the size difference between the 2 cubs or smaller bear. The same picture where th

Oh, Deloris is a super nice lady. I'm sure they tossed out the pan full, Or at least a big glob, but stuff like that happens so fast. Turn your head for a second and the damage is done.

I ain't no bearsmith, but you're probably correct. The tree that the cubs are messing with is about five yards farther back than the salt block. Frank.

I've been looking at the bear pictures above, that is a big fat sow. The cubs, compared to that salt block, I think they are too big to be this years cubs. I'm looking at the picture where the cubs are hugging the tree. Not sure?

Here's the girl's hand I was talking about. Happened back in 1978, pretty much one of those ka-la things mentined above. Deloris was on the way home from church when she stopped by today. Said she looked around to check on the kids, and it happene

Here's a shot of the little step down motor I mentioned. It reduces the 1725 rpms down to 145. That is still twice as fast as I would like it for grinding meat. With the proper sized pulleys I could get that down to 60rpms. That's about what I crank

You need a double reduction set up to slow the hand grinder down to hand speed. The speed at which it is designed to run. You need a very large pulley on the grinder. The reduction pulley will be hard to find.

I don't need a hand crank grinder, we've got a couple of the things. If I would have bought it, it would have been used to collect dust. It was bolted onto a board, and one of the bigger types that were made. It looked to be in pretty good shape

First off, if you're gonna buy a hand cranked grinder, get the kind with four legs so you can screw it down. I've got a smaller one that clamps onto a table or shelf edge. Use it for grinding mice, but that's about all the size chunks I'd put into it

The lady that I mentioned above that lost her finger tip, just talked to her oldest son, he's a little bit older than me. She did lose the whole joint with her fingernail. I'm sure her hands were cold and it probably didn't hurt till the next day.

We have an early 4 day antlerless firearm deer season going on now, tomorrow, Sunday is the last day. Moe and I went out and farted around a little bit. It's just too hot to hunt. Just picking on my buddy Moe, he was all bundled up and burning up.

Big sow and huge cubs. There is a little bear I have seen several times on one line. No sow. It has been a poor berry year. The sow is probably bred and chased the cub away to den alone. tough love. It is TINY. Cottagers want it gone before it caus

Looks like that'd be tough on a drill. My buddy Wardney has one rigged with an electric motor and pulley, it runs way too fast. You almost need a backstop on the dishpan. And I'll tell you that little hopper is pretty darned shallow! Talking ab
