Well, I stocked those Coppernose Bluegill. - BFIV
A couple of yall told me that the CB might not make it in the grandkids' fishin pond since I already had an established population of regular bluegill and bass. I still feed all the fish regularly and I guess I'll find out and hope for the best. I put 100 of em in there. It only cost 42 bucks for ...

That ant killin recipe really does work. - BFIV
Just wanted to say that the post going around FB showing how to get rid of those Jurassic Park black ants is truthful. I had tried mixing borax with grape jelly, but that didn't work too well. So...I cut the FB recipe by 2/3 and those black ants are GONE. Just put out a banquet for them with this re...

Do yall recommend stocking coppernose bluegill? - BFIV
The fish truck from Arkansas will be in my area Thursday morning and I need to get a couple of new sterile grass carp for the grandkids' pond. After reading a post last week that had a picture of a big coppernose bluegill, I am considering stocking about 100 of them in their pond. I've already got...

Don't know who or how they did this, but a crop circle suddenly appeared yesterday in East Tennessee. I got witnesses to my whereabouts yesterday, but I can't vouch for aVatiger. I think he might have been cleaning grease spots off his patio, but that may have been a cover story he concocted? Did...

How long do sterile grass carp live? - BFIV
About 10 years ago, I put two of these grass carp in the grandkids' pond. They were about 8 inches long when I stocked them. I think snappers got one of em right off the bat, but the other one got up to about 30 inches long and did a good job of keeping the weeds and grass under control. Grandkids...

I use a solar powered electric fence around my garden...with a special "twist". I stretch two strands of electric fence wire around the garden (first wire about 15 inches off the ground with the second about 30 inches off the ground). Nothing special about this arrangement because it won't keep the...

Snake handling minister loses his rattlesnakes... - BFIV
Just saw this article in a local newspaper. I didn't know it was illegal to transport rattlesnakes or copperheads in Tennessee. I still contend that if The Good Lord had intended for us to pick up snakes, He woulda put a handle on em, but He didn't. [link=(http://www.timesnews.net/article/90573...

Today, in Minnesota, President Obama is quoted as saying, "No law or set of laws can keep our children completely safe, but if there's even one thing we can do, if there's just one life we can save, we've got an obligation to try." Ok, we haven't tried putting an armed SRO in each and every schoo...

Gun laws work! - BFIV
Chicago, home of our Presidential Community Organizer, is a shining example of how effective the most restrictive gun laws in the country actually are.

Don't know if this is posted elsewhere or not? These PETA idiots really tick me off.

I'm old school and have always been told to never dry fire any weapon unless you had a spent cartridge in the chamber for the firing pin to hit.

Here in Virginia, we are required to either check the deer at any VDGF authorized check station or call it in at a toll free number.
