#351715 Omega Sight from Lil Bow Peep

I may look into getting one to test, if the company has a writer's policy of some type.  I typically avoid getting gear that way, because I'm obligated to write the truth.  And, that could be good or bad for the promotion department.

It was opening day of crow season Saturday and Bullwinkle and I popped a few with the chum trick. Couldn't find some in the 4-foot tall grass, so Bullwinkle took his hound out there and he sniffed them out.  I used one of Big D's custom crow calls, too.  I know we woke up the neighbors, because I got a text from one who wanted to know what we were doing out there blasting away in August.  Yes, a person can hear the sunrise when crow season opens around my place.  Bullwinkle got to try out his new O/U 20-gauge, two-pipe shoots gun, too.

Yeah, RoundUp becomes inert when it's dry - at least according to Monsanto.  It only works on plants through the leaves.

I planted brassicas - purple top turnips and rape. Gives them food until next spring and survives the snow and cold.

This is how it should look in a month or so.

Just gotta make sure there's enough for Bullwinkle, too. He always uproots a few turnips for the dinner table.

Decided to clean up camp and did just that in about a half hour.  T/C Contender w/10-inch, .45/.410 barrel loaded with 2 1/2 inch, #6 shot.  Plenty good medicine.

 

Got the camera set up at the feed site, so we'll see what bites on these recycled rascals.

Dug up the garlic and got it hanging to dry.  Bulbs are large this year - about 250 of them.  One of those foods wildlife don't mess with.  Absolutely no fence needed.

#351237 Black Raspberries Worth Fighting For

Posted by glenway on 08 July 2020 - 03:03 PM

Just starting to come in are the wild black raspberries.  If a person wants enough for a pie, he's gotta get ready to do battle with the elements:  skeeters, brambles, poison ivy,  and sweat to name some of the obstacles.  Small buckets fastened to belts keep the hands free to pick away till hands turn purple.

 

Great in milk shakes with some fancy ice cream.  Don't need any color additives.

 

They boost the body’s antioxidant defense system, as well - some three times more than red raspberries.

They probably meant to hang it that way to attract attention.  Guess it worked.

#351171 Crow No Mo

Posted by glenway on 05 July 2020 - 04:30 AM

Came home from early gardening chores out back this morning and saw a few crows behind the house.  Even though they're not "in season", they can still be taken out under certain circumstances according to law:  causing a nuisance is one of the exceptions.  Since they raid the nests of songbirds, I don't want 'em around.  Just don't appreciate the bullies.

 

Got to the garage where I keep my old Marlin model 81 bolt action rifle (vintage 1937) topped with a Hawke scope.  Scope has parallax adjustment and I keep it on 30 feet for ground squirrels and red squirrels out the garage window.  Ammo is CCI CBs, 29-grain bullets at a mere 710 fps.  Wimpy stuff but plenty good enough for normal rodent control.

 

However, I estimated the shot to be between 50-75 yards so I moved the parallex accordingly and turned up the magnification and held over some 4 inches.

 

The rather large varmint fell over dead at 64.2 yards.

Probably won't get much complaining from the tenants with this sign.

Spellcheck strikes again.  Not once, but twice!  And, someone's brother in-law gave them a good deal on the sign.

You could make one of those Sumo wrestling outfits with it.
