    Lloyd Smale replied to a thread Toy Guns in Our Town
    My mother just gave me my baby book. One of the things she wrote in it was that at age 2 I was obsessed with guns, cars and trucks. Said I would get bored with any other toy in a matter of minutes but would play for hours with those. Some things...

    I probably gut an average of 50 deer a year and can say without reservation that never once was it ENJOYABLE. Obviously I don't gag or puke but id have to have a pretty terrible life to consider it fun.

    no doubt some need them and a good many could get by just fine without them. I lived on them for 5 years. I pretty much wasted 5 years of my life. I had pain. theres no doubt about it. But those pills took as much quality of life away from me as the...

    I quit doing it. WHY? because it seems like I gave most of it away. Everyone wanted ready to eat venison but most of them don't want to be bothered cooking it themselves. Anymore everything that isn't roast or steaks is ground into burger. I grind...
