    Default Taunting!

    Pulled a camera card which is about 300 feet from my front door to find these two:

    They?re politely quiet and I didn?t know they are frequenting the area.

    Default War started!

    I left my house around 4PM yesterday, started the truck, and looked in the mirror to see this behind me. It wasn?t two minutes before that I walked through where this bird is standing.

    Went to leave the house this morning to check and pull my last trap and was greeted by ?this? on my hood.

    Thankfully I caught the beaver I was after and I pulled my trap.

    I responded to a craigslist add this morning about free wood and received a call back an hour later. At noon I loaded up two of my saws and headed out. I ended up with about 1.5 cords and was able to use one of my back up saws (371k). The wood was super dirty and I pinched/stuck a saw in one cut.

    For those in the construction trade you’ll know a 371k is not a chainsaw. I converted this saw years ago to make an interesting conversation piece. I lend it out sometimes and have been asked where they can find a 371k for themselves. The saw engine is modified for more power but they think the power comes because it’s a cut off saw engine.

    My truck has timbren joust stops in it to handle extra weight. These loads were the first I was able to test them. They worked great to the point the truck didn’t even feel like it was loaded.

    Another cord of free wood from craigslist today. A 20 inch red maple that split hard. I had to rip the 24” lengths with my saw then whack the cut with my 8 pound maul.

    At 1:40 PM today, after completing wood duty, I went to move my truck and began around a slight corner to find the tom following a hen. I stopped the truck and watched them until they had walked deep enough into the woods that I wouldn’t disturb them as I drove by.

    That's a nice bird right there. Looks like he's got good hooks on him too

    I thought the same. About 3/4-1 mile from me is a winter bird feeder flock and they always seem to put a tom or two on my property each spring. I’ve yet to shoot one but have had a lot of fun watching and listening to them when they arrive.
