    If you are content with allowing the government to cancel the 4th of July celebrations, then sadly, you have totally forgotten what INDEPENDENCE DAY is all about!!!

    Plan to spend the day in my workshop, and the son and I may go see some fireworks somewhere in the area. We'll likely park somewhere near the venue. Midwest City is having fireworks, and a couple of other smallish towns nearby.

    Neighbors have been setting off fireworks for about a month now. My poor dog is on about his last nerve.

    PA Governor Wolf has tried to cancel the fireworks displays and other gatherings but my town told him to "shove it" and we'll see the rocket's red glare again this year!

    I am in Washington, but the hay stacks are over on a Reservation. I canít hunt them either ....

    I have Tribal hunters that harvest them but there is a limit to what they can handle. The herd moves off but is back in a couple of hours. Then they are hazed off by Jeep or snowmobile. Then they come back around 2:00 AM.

    A few years ago we were dealing with 300 head every night. They came in a packed column 3/4 of a mile long.

    Quit fretting about climate change. Itís how much stronger gravity is getting every day that is bothering me!

    Smoked boar shoulder with other eats, beer, and family. Sons bringing fireworks as the love of his life likes them, kinda new to me but if it makes them happy I’m in. Don’t know what the government thinks, don’t really care, my farm I’ll do what I want. They sell it, so guess we can light it off.
    Was watching a Brian Shaw utube ( shawstrength, or “history’s strongest man”) and saw they were doing a show on revolutionary war strong man and had a segment on shooting the musket. I don’t have a musket, but a flint Tn mountain rifle. Thinking I may let some of them shoot it to get a feel of what it was really like “way back”. Most people now have probably never even seen a flintlock long rifle like used at Kings Mountain. A teaching moment and fun too boot!

    Ahh... You must be up in the middle/Northern part of the state.

    We have a decent herd down in this area, but they hang out on private property and you have to be really good friends with a farmer to hunt deer or elk around here.
