Thanks bud.
He is 53. He has a lot of support at least. Good family and lots of friends. One of those guys everybody likes. Do anything for anybody.
Has his own business and a custom Harley building business on the side.
They had to remove a piece of skull to relive pressure yesterday. He is a big, tough, guy. We are all hopeful.

Been a rough spring up here. Both my parents have some health issues, also. Some of why I've been a little scarce here. May be for a while yet.
No worries, though. It'll all work out. :D

OR
2, Dixie's vet bill

Take your time and choose wisely! :lol:

Sure hope your folks get well soon!

Six you need a 6'4" cut out of Trump to stand out there with a pump holding a sign that says 'DRAINING SWAPS 1 AT A TIME"

Can we hunt gators in your swamp Six? I have a model 57 marlin that would be just the ticket.

Yea if i want to go to jail for a long time, and to many neighbors that would see ya.
I called the DNR last year and told me that the State owns the bear and i`m not allowed to do anything to it and they won`t either.
Like everything else it sucks, they`ll probably put the bear on welfare and send it to free school next. :lol:

Then send the State a bill for all the damage the bear does. Then, when the State doesn't pay up... claim that amount as a loss on your taxes... citing the unpaid bill. Don't be bashful about what gets added to that bill either!

An old trapper told me that to get rid of a problem bear to put fish hooks in meat( suet cake ) and then let it eat its fill. The hooks cause a very slow painful death and that is NOT humane!!
Now that the bear has done property damage your DNR should get off their azzes and trap that sucker!
For a long time I have put a cap full of Pinesol in every bag of garbage that goes out, the bears dont like pinesol- try pouring pinesol around - might work. Suppose you could make bear boards, plywood with nail driven through- points up laying on the ground.

Thanks for the replies, the problem here is Normas bird seed and suet, we now have it all put away so maybe problem solved.
DNR won`t do any thing if you have food laying around, seems we go through this every year but Norma don`t get it i guess.
Think we`ll put some pinesol out though anyway.

I would not like that Pitchy.....I go outside regularly at nighttime to get something out of the garage...barn....vehicle...etc. I've run into possums. Deer and foxes take off before I see them.

Hey! Maybe if you got one of those road signs that say, "bear left" and put it by the shed. Your bear will see it and think he is alone and might not come back.---6

Lift kit #2 showed up in Thursday's mail, this one fit just right! About 3 hours to install it. I had to grind just about 1/16" on one side of a bracket due to an oversize weld on the rear shock mount but other than that it was painless (except for one knuckle)!
Factory ground clearance was 11" now it is 13".
Since I was on a roll I rigged up a pulley in the shed so I could winch the plow up into a vertical storage position- it's out of my way now, gained some floor space! Now I wish I could find a buyer for my quad...

Cleaned out my truck- I'm going shooting tomorrow!! Match next weekend, hoped to have a few more practice targets but I'm not shooting in the rain and it's been raining a lot lately!

Gunny......What did you do...put a 2" body lift on it?

Rain? I cut grass today and my front yard has to be the winner in the neighborhood for "nastiest looking yard". Took an hour to power wash the Kubota.......yea......I needed to KEEP the tractor in 4 wheel drive the whole time. The wife said I should have just let it go until it dries up but we guys don't have that kind of patience.--6
