    Hey Swede. In case you were worried about me. I'm alive and kicking. And i just left footprints in the snow across the bluff and north side of the creek. Not much moving down there. Bumped a couple does on me and a couple more on you. Yup, i trespassed...

    The buck in the pic i sent is still kickin! I saw him tonight after some does in my west hayfield. Pretty impressive animal! Pretty sure he is the same one we saw the day down by the big cottonwood tree Swede

    Kind of a crazy day. Was at the creek crossing in the sunshine with Swede and the ol man, takin in the sunshine, watching the honey bees and deer. An hour later it went to hell. Power went. Storm radio went. Portable radio went. Cell phone wouldnt work. Generator did tho! Time to reorganize my gear i guess. But in the end, all is well on this side of the creek valley

  5. Livin with wildlife

    Hey Swede. Step out the back door and whistle your deer home. They are inhaling my round bales and tonight they are mowing off the hayfield by the house!

    I just heard on the news that this bill stalled for now in the Senate. Apperently they knew better that to try pushing such a sweeping, not well thought out thing thru. The bad reality is, it is just the beginning...keep some storage space open Razor...

    Wonder how you could find out how many of the 500 shot or the shooters involved had valid Illinois FOID cards. Could make for some good debate material

    I only hope common sense can prevail over fear. The best survival tool in any situation

    I dont want to have to belong to a "gun club" to own my firearms. Granted my life is alot different from many of the people of America. I have worked hard for what i have, nothing has been givin to me. Part of the American dream. I love the history involved with guns. The mechanical side of them. Their evolution. They have always been in my life. Many enjoyable hours spent plinking and reloading. They are a part/tool in my life now, just like my trucks, tractors and 4 wheelers as i roam the hills and valleys around here. Guess i was raised differently than the world we now live in. That in its self is a shame.

    i saw a post online that said these mass shooters always seem to hit "soft" targets like schools. They never try it at an NRA convention. Wonder why that is? Maybe they should try the Cedar creek valley...Swede has a survival rifle...

    I think you might be on to something here. House the methheads and hoodlums in the leaky roof, rundown, asbestos filled underfunded facilities we call school buildings. Move the students to the high tech, secure, camera monitored, heavily funded prison facilities. The thugs might staighten up to get out...the kids would be safe and well educated...and i can keep my firearms. Food for thought!

    They'll look around at that place and say, DAMN! I better start studying! :smoke:
  15. Campfire Talk

    laws,laws,bylaws and statistics... Why can't we all just get along? i tresspass on Swede. Swede tresspasses on me. We BS when we catch each other. Lot better way to live!
  16. Campfire Talk

    So i guess all we can do is stand united and see how it all shakes out
  17. Campfire Talk

    Unfortunately thats not how it always works.
  18. Campfire Talk

    The weeks to come will be interesting with strong emotions from both sides of the issues...
  19. Campfire Talk

    Guess the big question is...how to we as a society filter out the "bad" seeds before they pick up the tools and use them wrong?
  20. Campfire Talk

    My 2 cents is. A gun is no different than a hammer, a shovel or any other tool. Its all in the mindset of the person handling it. Its hard to blame a tool for wrong doing...
  21. Campfire Talk

    Suprised me that it actually was rather unbiased!
  22. Campfire Talk

    Our rights make us a free nation. Ignorance breeds fear. I've got your north side Swede!
  23. Campfire Talk

    I'm quite sure the gun control issue will heat up in the days to come. Nut control is more what is needed, but how does that come to be. Anyone who has studied history knows that "civilized" man has been butchering one another since the recording of those event have begun. The latest tragedy is just that, a tragedy. For those involved, and for those of us that have watched it unfold. Yes i am a firearm owner. They have always been a part of my life and i just passed the half century mark. Everyone i know owns firearms. Granted i live in a part of the country where some form of values and common sense still abound. The media will ride this last event for all the ratings they can get, and like a previous post mentioned, all that will be remembered is the shooter, the guns and the number. The term "assault weapon" will be at the forefront. A term that pisses me off personally. I wish i had the answer or the reason for what drives some to do what they do. I just refuse to pay the price for their choices.
