re: I saw something disgusting from a hunter today - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]Hunters have to rely on folks who have a positive view of hunting when it comes to a vote. That's why it is important to promote hunting as ethical and humane. [/quote] This is absolutely true. I'll shoot a coyote in a heartbeat, and if it runs off, I'm probably not going to go look f...

re: Trump changes law on Elephants - Chris4x4gill2
I see no reason to ban it. Profitable hunting is one of the key ingredient that will ensure the survival of species like this. Just like the rhinos, the money from a conservation hunt will help many more survive. If they cant bring that legally taken trophy home, people will be much less likely to p...

re: Skull mounting deer - Chris4x4gill2
I made a buck boiler out of a 1500w water heater element and a feed bucket last year but never got to use it after I finished it (my skull was hauled off by something). I hope to try it out this year as an alternative to using the propane burner. My dad did one last year - he just put it in a bucket...

re: What to pay off first? - Chris4x4gill2
This dude is not going to take any of the advice here guys. He is looking for a quick fix, not a real solution. He is still trying to justify bad decisions rather than admitting that what he is doing isn't working. He isn't ready to change yet. He's not going to sell the car, he isn't going to aggre...

re: Anyone ever set a Resin shed? Not sure what foundation to use. - Chris4x4gill2
^^^^^ That last line is what I was about to suggest. 12" or larger patio blocks from Lowes are $1-$1.50 each. 1/2 yard or so of paver sand for the base to get everything level, lay pavers - set shed on top. Just have to be careful of roof runoff to make sure it doesn't go back under the shed....

re: Husquavarna leaf blower lost compression - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]If you lost compression its probably the top end and unless you buy the cheap Chinese top end kits and do it yourself it's it's not worth it. [/quote] Likely needs new piston / cylinder. If you don't want to buy a new blower, replacement is easy. Chinese parts can be found for around $50. ...

re: How to fill in chips in concrete from Demolition hammer ? - Chris4x4gill2
[quote]OP, small chips don't need special attention, just spread the thinset with the proper notched trowel for the tiles size you are putting down, butter the tiles before you place them, and go on.[/quote] This. No need to worry, just lay the tile as normal. ...

re: Best time to get in the woods for an evening hunt? - Chris4x4gill2
It all depends on your access and can you get to your spot without pushing deer. If you have deer coming near your stand on a travel corridor 30 min before dark at 6:30, then yea I'd say its worth it if you can get there by 5:30....
