Sponsor Classifieds / Re: Budget Bushcraft Pack Skinners RETURN!
« Last post by rainshadow1 on Today at 11:35:24 PM »
Thanks Dan-o! I texted Alex out in the shop at about 7 that we were starting a movie. He asked, ďWhich movie?Ē And didnít come inside til 8... heís working on another batch!

Very proud of his recent work ethic.

Davidís pens are getting very precise and professional. Really proud of him too!

Itís 100% their work, but I inspect everything and it must pass, or theyíre not allowed to sell it.

Owe a lot to guys like you who support and encourage them. Thanks!

Here's what is going to happen...  One idiot who goes on this eradication is going to share pictures of his group's kills, including the nannies and kids.  When the public sees these pictures, which they will, it's going to be one of the biggest  BLACK EYES  our hunting community has ever seen.  The kind of fuel the anti-hunting groups thrive on. 
And I wouldn't consider this a hunt gentlemen.  The idea of pulling the trigger on a bunch of young goats is wrong IMO, regardless of the Fed's reasons.
:yeah:  leave it to the hired guns, WDFW is just looking for a bunch of scapegoats to help begin the end of hunting in WA.   :twocents:

I just opened a package filled with 4 of these knives and a couple reallllllllllly nice pens.

These knives are every bit as nice as they look.   The pens are also really cool.
Hard to believe your sons made them.   You are training some seriously skilled craftsmen.

Please thank your sons for me and thank you for raising your sons right.

It's like Christmas in April.

Another thing that I think is worth noting is that even for the best hunters this might not be a high success rate hunt. Not like a normal OIL. Theyíre doing more live captures this summer and are taking everything out of there they can. I think this hunt is just to clean up the final holdouts. I donít think itís going to be a bloodbath because it could be legitimately difficult to locate a goat. In some of the units there may not even be any goats left.

One thing Iíve noticed since I moved out west is the size of the saws people use out here.  Growing up back East, we cut a lot of wood. Heated our house solely with wood through winter where it got real cold. Hardwoods too. Oak, maple, hickory, etc. My dad and grandfather had saws with 20Ē bars and cut everything with them.  I cut all the trees off my grandfathers property and cleared for his house with a 20Ē saw. Whyís everybody gotta have saws with gigantic bars on them out here? I mean I get the loggers and the pros but seems like folks have a thing for oversized saws they donít really need. Arenít they just heavier after a day in the woods?

 :yeah:

I used to work for a tree service company and have operated and worked on chainsaws quite a bit.  Mostly stihl.
 
I have 4 saws, 28" bar, 25" bar, 20" bar, and 18" bar.  I use the saw with a 18" bar 80% of the time.  I'm 6'5" so I understand the argument of having a long bar so you don't have to bend over to de-limb logs.  But I do so much delimbing, cutting small stuff, hacking and slashing blackberries and brush....the weight of the bigger saws wears me out much quicker.  80% of the cuts I make are 10" diameter or less.  But occasionally I cut 2'+ diameter logs and I have the saws for that too.

Another benefit to a shorter bar is that the chain doesn't come off as easily.  When delimbing, cutting back brush from the base of a tree, etc, sometimes small branches or things grab the chain and try to throw it off the bar. 

And I also second the previous comment that shorter bars take less time to sharpen a chain.

Power Equipment & RV / need seat belt part for 2001 dodge ram
« Last post by Threewolves on Today at 10:26:55 PM »
I need the plastic piece on the drivers side back rest were the seat belt goes in. Mine is broke and is a pain. I checked with Geno's they don't know. Dealer says whole new seat belt. Nothing on E bay unless there is another way to type it in. I think about auto wreck yard, but seem other than taking the whole seat apart the easiest way would be to cut the plastic to remove it, then glue together before putting into the seat slots.

Anyone know where one could be obtained (other than wrecking yard, sorry auto recycle).

Anyone have a better idea (other than getting another truck) ?
