I'll be out and about. I have the car loaded with my equipment.

Going to be mostly snares with acouple of 330's and #3's.

Need to take care of the complaints from private communities.

15' from house and dam.


That's AOK in my book. Good luck and be safe to all.

not well . had a line strung out about 3 miles through the woods that i figured i better pull , so i took the muzzleloader for a walk and did that , 4 hours later i was back at the truck and ran over to my grandpops to help him which kind of put a roadblock in the beavers .tommorow for sure. i think our pike county treasurer is bringing his boys over to tag along . have a few hotspots for the kids to see , hopefully teach them a few tricks

got 15 sets in today before the crap came. 15 ft rule is a pain but it could be 25 like it used to be i guess. mine are a mix of 330, snares, float sets and a couple #3 on drowners. stuck with mostly blind sets and bait. i'll lure things up in a day or 2. the floats are lured of course though.

i take all 4 legs and par boil , bake in oven on 250 for about 8 hrs . you want it to cook real slow. after that i make like a pulled pork with sauce

just toss it in the crock pot with what ever seasoning you like and forget about it for a day.
