Use of Dynamite?


Any of you have reason to use dynamite? I've used it once to blow up a beaver dam on a duck lease.

One thing I learned, if you think you're far enough away, you better back up some more.

shite (mud and limbs) went straight up and came down everywhere.

i know miners and other lines of work use it, but can the avg person just walk in a store and buy it or do you have to have some kind of license. how much does the shite cost?

I believe there is paperwork required. There was a place east of Stuttgart (around Clarendon, AR) where the farmers would go to buy dynamite.

I think they had to be licensed to purchase.

For the kind we used, we had to nitro glycerene liquid in the tube, replace the cap, cut and insert the fuse and then light it.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think you must have a game warden blow a dam. I know several years ago, a farmer I know was having problems w/a dam. And a warden came out and blew mud and sticks halfway to the moon

Why? Aren't beaver ponds duck magnets?

We used to have fun with scraps of det cord and what not. All you had to do was call it a safety demonstration and you could get away with all kinds of fun.

They started forcing us to catalog that shite pretty closely though, and that ended.

If you find somebody willing to blow up some dams, I could use their services too.

My cousin and I used a stick to blow up a rock that was in the way. We tapped a hole, dropped it in, and blew it up. The leftover pieces were small enough to move by hand. The smaller pieces of debris flew pretty far; pebbles were raining down on the fishing camp roof.

You can't beat it for removing dead whales from beaches.

Why?


Beaver was trying to dam up a drainage pipe and we needed to get them water on down the creek so it could get to the relift and be pumped into the timber and the food plots.
