    I have done a total of one set. I did it on a Bridgeport with a boring head but they can be done on a lathe with a faceplate. The key is to determine what the space between the ring halves is when it is very lightly clamped on a 1" diameter. I...

    The definition of possession varies from state to state and even within the state depending on species. I will use North Dakota as an example since they recently changed the law to not include game at home in the freezer except for waterfowl. ...

    As I CLEARLY stated when they suspect abuse. Check out any of the news reports when people are caught with large amounts over the daily limit. When that happens they tend to do a home freezer inspection.

    North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Minnesota all use DNA testing and freezer checks when abuse is suspected. Frankly I would be surprised if all states don't. While is it true that Game wardens currently have more power than most LE...

    Old blades were great, however, the new ones not so much. This applies for both the carbide tip blades and the bi-metal blades. By old I am referring to mid 80's or older. A simple spark test would be the first step.

    Not true. Game wardens routinely check freezers when they believe there is abuse. They also use DNA to determine the number of animals in possession. The key is abuse. When they suspect abuse they tend to get very interested in what's in your...

    They are correct. Possession limit is total amount you can have period. That includes at home in the freezer even if it's from last year or 10 years ago.

    probably good you used a thin 2 inch pan or I doubt all that water would have been cooked out of it in an hour. You would have ended up with burnt top and raw insides.
