    Don't act foolishly

    Manufacturers do the best they can to make these things Monkey Proof, but then society just keeps making better Monkeys.

    Feral Hogs

    Yes, a decent size hog (100 lbs and larger) would be an easy target for a seasoned Long Range shooter. My Daughter hit a 16" x 16" steel target at a bit over one mile on her 6th try (very windy that day). Doping the wind is pretty much the only challenge. You can't even see the target with the...

    Things Are Expensive…So What?

    I fully understand. I am retired, my wife is still working (couple more years) we have a comfortable income but I've put off building an enclosed porch on the back of the house for the same reason you cite. I can afford to do it....but its just the 'thought' that my purchasing power is...

    Feral Hogs

    Anything suitable for hunting whitetail deer will work on hogs with proper shot placement. Use heavy for caliber bullets if shooting the smaller calibers. Avoid head shots unless no other shot is presented. Middle of the neck (on broadside shots) will drop them right there. IF you shoot behind...

    Feral Hogs

    In my State (Texas) this would not be legal (sale of Feral Pig Meat) without the animal having first been quarantined, inspected at least twice and approved. TAHC forbids it and the USDA will not allow wild hog meat to be donated to food banks. An individual can give the meat resource to...

    Feral Hogs

    Vast majority get 'recycled' natures way. Coyotes and Buzzards clean them up within 48 hrs. Nothing but a few bones and hide left. Occasionally, someone will want one to butcher....and I am happy to let them have as many as they like. But few (if any) folks in my county don't already have...

    Mark BX25D wrote: "Once they are in the net, let the shooting begin. No, it's not hunting. It's eradication." Yes, NOT hunting at all and of course no claims made as such as you well understand. It is 'slaughter' pure and simple and no Land Owner that I know will make any apologies for it. I...

    Fuel Line I.D. (inner diameter)

    That was going to be my guess as well. Thanks for the input.

    Fuel Line I.D. (inner diameter)

    I am going to purchase some fuel line and also add a shutoff valve on my L2350 Kubota. Anyone happen to know the I.D. of the fuel line or size of the barb fittings. Metric I imagine but I can find the nearest fractional size. Just don't want to remove what I have now until I'm ready to replace...

    Feral Hogs

    Not allowed under TAHC rules (of which there are many) without extraordinary measures (being held a certain number of days, inspected several times, etc, etc). The commercial processing of Feral Hogs in the U.S. just simply isn't worth it. Nearly all are sold to Asian Markets.

    Feral Hogs

    In Texas....Feral Hogs can not be processed at the same time commercial butchers are processing domestic livestock. This is true even for Deer. Pretty much ALL feral hogs are sold to State Approved 'holding stations' and are sold to Asian Markets. With respect to shooting hogs behind fenced...

    Feral Hogs

    They are a scourge and here to stay unfortunately. I've been battling them for about 30 yrs. now on my property. I trap them, shoot them, snare them, run them with dogs on occasion. But they just keep making more. Have kind of an ongoing thread about that here...

    Zero Turn Mowers

    ^^^^ Hah.....isn't that the truth. I'm not quite 70 yrs. old yet, but sometimes when I am down on my knees or working on something laying on my side, I'll look around and see if there is anything else that needs to be done while I'm down there....before I try to get back up! ;)

    Cleaning Underside of Mower???

    Ahhhhh......'Bad Back' is a game changer for sure. Sorry to hear of that. I'm almost 20 years your senior, but still able to get around pretty well. I forget sometimes that not everyone is so blessed. Hope you find something that works well for you.

    Cleaning Underside of Mower???

    I use a heavy duty paint scraper to clean the deck on my Zero Turn. Does the job quickly.

    Cleaning Underside of Mower???

    Spraying with water can work OK as long as you get to it BEFORE all the dirt and grass dry to the deck. Afterward....you are just trying to erode it away.....takes forever. Since your 3 point won't lift it high enough for you, you can build/buy a STURDY ramp to drive one rear tire up on and...

    72" rear discharge mower on B2601?

    Hah......well that's an entirely different matter and goes sharply up the difficulty scale, if She's anything like my Wife. ;) I have part of one pasture (about 5 acres) that I actually mow with my Zero Turn (deck up in transport position) simply because its faster than my tractor and does a...

    72" rear discharge mower on B2601?

    That's a good price for that unit. Also, if you put mulching type blades on it....it pretty much chops up leafs enough that they don't need to blown into rows.
