Have an elderly widow woman who lives a few miles down the road. We help her out when she needs something. Her husband and my dad were good friends. She called and said her pond behind her house had beavers show up in it and if I would trap or shoot them. Went over there this afternoon and found a fresh den in the dam. Got a couple of double springs hooked together and my cable slide and cinder block all ready to go. I laid down on my stomach first and looked up in the den when this beaver was coming out. I had just enough time to set both traps down in front of the hole and grab the chain when all hell broke loose. I thought I was going in head first. Wasn’t gonna let go because I hadn’t snapped chain onto the cable yet. This beaver was going ballistic. Finally got my feet under me and started pushing up the dam with my feet until I could grab my 22 and dispatch him. I turn around and this 78 year old lady is standing there and I ask her how long had she been standing there and she said ever since you laid on your belly. Next time Mildred hand me my gun please. Neighbor lady’s beaver was about to get me down.207f460a5ffda7038c5a04b63832335c.jpg

The mental picture of that got me to laughing. Next time give Mildred the video cam.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !



20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !


If you want to be successful, Be like a postage stamp, Stick to it until you get there



RIP Chris Miller
