General Discussion / Re: just wanted to say ty
« Last post by Sundance Creek on Today at 05:01:58 AM »
decided top go back to the beginning of the forum to peruse threads

collecting tins.. started by woodswoman, nearly had me in tears

http://bladesandbushlore.com/index.php?topic=595.0

I am a recovering tin collector (sorta recovering)

I,m liking these new (to me) small tins that gum/mints  come in

but I have some much larger

the altoids and similar are handy, but for inside the house the larger tins store bigger stuff

and keeps critters out

as stated.. I recently joined and the best way I know of, to get a feel for a forum, is to browse the past threads

seems to be LOTSA knowledgible (sp) folks, in these parts

both in the past and present.

one thing I see that interests me is carving bark

boggles my mind that folks find bark so thick (3-4 inches?)

especially poplar bark ..cottonwood

we got lots hereabouts, but the bark itself, is only about half inch thick

been trying to carve a spoon while awaiting tools in the mail (Canada post is on strike so it mite be awhile b4 any arrive)

the spoon is ash from my woodpile

without a scorp, its pretty hard to do the bowl

even tho the wood is only cpl months old, it is very solid and my sharpening skills are nonexistent at this point

Hunting, Fishing and Trapping / Re: Opinions?

Elvie and I were in our first year of marriage when she came home and discovered some squirrel carcasses in clear baggies  the freezer.  Squirrel blood and hair on the kitchen counter.  We had a discussion.  I have not done that in the past 24 years since.   :)
With my butchering 15-25 chickens and a dozen rabbits every year, my wife doesn't bat an eye.  She has only one rule: "You kill it, you clean it...and clean up the mess!"  At one point I had 5 deer lined up to butcher. She bent the rules over that a bit, and pitched in to help wrap 'em.

Good video Woods.  Makes one think about their gear picks as well.

Whatever that burl is it is really good looking.  Interesting handle shape.

The Dinga Dude has it figured out, doesn't get to far ahead or behind.  Nice dog.

That was a nice tracking snow and thanks for pointing out the wolf tracks.  I have seen some over in SE Montana but not for a couple of years.
