    Here in Southeast Texas they tell me that where Fire Ants live, they kill the baby quail as soon as they hatch while still wet. They also claim that Fire Ants eat chiggers and if that is true, it is the only good thing they do. We have no chiggers,...

    Oldtimers used to trap pigs, castrate all the boars, put their mark in the ear and turn loose. Later when a big barrow was killed, it didn't taste like armpit. As for penning a wild pig goes, they had a post with gunny sack tied around it inside...

    Sorry if this offends you Sig556r. That is not my aim. Point is that it seems that you are saying Feral Hog Season opens Sept. 1st.. In reality this is when the no hunting license required becomes law. Open season in Texas is all year long...

    My hunting partner bow killed a hog that was still wearing some buckshot in different non-vital parts. That could mean that the shot was taken at too long a distance. I was mortified to find the coyote still alive. I had been plowing a field...

    I agree that if you should kill an animal, it should be a fast humane shot and use all the ethics at your disposal. When I first saw the video I was thinking that the muzzle loaders would be glad to see how this guy uses blackpowder. As a hunter...

    Many cutting tools throw out double pointed small pieces that wind up in your fingers... I was told to use sandpaper sliding on the skin to remove it. First you use a tissue or cloth and rub in different directions and find which way has the most...

    Hey Red Bear, didn't know about the book matches. I will try to remember that! In my aircraft sheet metal working days we used a lead pencil like a #2 with a worn point to get aluminum chips out of the eye. Worked like a charm. The pencil didn't...

    During WW2 nothing was available to buy, so a 10 year old boy living in the country had to "make do" with what was available. I did own a 3 blade knife and with it made whatever kind of "weapon" that I could devise. Things like bamboo spears, bows...

    When I posted this, I really thought I could get some help identifying whatever it is, but alas not much help at all. Probably should have done what LUBEDUDE suggested and post on a Bigfoot forum. LOL

    If that is a hog it would have to be over six feet tall at the shoulder. We have no bears in this area.
