    dverna replied to a thread Squirrels in Hunting with CB's
    Red squirrels are just pests where I live. This year the squirrel population seems down. I was blaming porcupines for debarking a nice big maple when I was told the squirrels chew the bark off for nesting material and even eat it. Seemed far...

    I have a Winchester Model 52 sporter. Had not shot it in years and put a few rounds through it yesterday. There is something about shooting a that little gun that I find appealing. Part of it may be I used to shoot a Target M52 in smallbore...

    dverna replied to a thread rental camper needed in Our Town
    12 miles does not seem like much of a drive unless it is through a big city. Something to be said for a hot shower in the morning and a place to do your business at night. Guess I am showing my age...LOL

    I believe the ventless wall mounted propane heaters will put water vapor into the space. When you leave and shut the heater down, that vapor will condense and you may have more rust issues than normal. I would go with electric heat but I can...

    Ickiszrulz, You always make me think.... Just curious. Your comment about "There is no time given for the fall of the angels. It could have happened a billion years after their creation." leads me to believe you do not believe that creation...

    I believe God did not start or stop His creations with earth. I also believe He is not perfect, and learned from his "mistakes" with each iteration of creation.

    Interesting take and the one normally used to describe man. I offer the following thoughts. If the search for knowledge is a good thing, the "sin" of eating from the Tree of Knowledge seems predestined, and God knew that. The sin of pride was...

    I am not sure why He created evil but He created everything. Maybe we need evil so we can appreciate goodness. Just as we need darkness to appreciate light. Or hate to appreciate love. Many believe the first sin occurred when Adam and Eve...

    dverna replied to a thread Time to cut fire wood in Our Town
    I will be doing things differently this year. Wood is split and placed in IBC totes. The bottom of the plastic bin is cut off and an access window cut in one side. Access opening is also cut out of the long side of the IBC cage. The plastic bin...

    I would likely contact one of the smaller suppliers. Questions: Is there a time of year when they have excess capacity for a special run? What are the price breaks at different production quantities? ie, 25k, 50k, 100k cases How will it be...

    My stock of HP-38/W231 is over 10 years old. I use it in my 9mm loads with a 122 gr bullet with very good results. I use Clays as well.

    I doubt the OP can carry a pistol in Canada. Ditch the 410 for your scouting duties. But a cheap beater 12 ga and load it with slugs. Carry it if encounters with aggressive bears are possible. Being armed for a possible grouse is a very poor...

    I would buy or borrow a back up gun with a scope. You have lost a lot of weight and your health is poor. You will likely get tired easily and will be breathing deeply. Making a great shot will be difficult. Use enough gun. Hope your...

    Of course. I could not forgive murder. My child would deserve to be executed. I could not do it, but I would accept such a sentence and outcome.

    Get an old stove hood and modify it as needed. They have a small fan to vent. Make a panel you can put in the open window with a hole and piping for the vent pipe. Good warning from bmortell about making sure the pot cannot overturn and spill...
