I found another dead deer a few weeks back caught in a wire. The coyotes have cleared up the evidence. But I found this cable snare at the base of the tree.

After doing some research it looks like this is an extension cable and not the snare itself. If I understand correctly, snares are supposed to have something called a deer stop on them in order to comply with state regulations. I don't know what a deer stop is exactly but I'm guessing it prevents the snare from closing past a certain diameter.

Thanks Kim. The hippies were all part of a bird watching group. They came along while I was picking up poo.  They were not happy with me. I also found a pair of rusty wire cutters. NJ yields a lot of trash.

Fire project.

 

Cigarette filters. Split ‘em open, scrape the fibers until they fluff and hit them with a spark. Steel wool works even better.

Project Poo: The deer poo was still too moist. I lit a match to one of the older pieces and it glowed like charred cloth. Coal extender.

Project poo.

 

I can get a fairly decent coal out of the dried deer poo.

Hot enough to scorch the cotton ball, not hot enough to ignite it.

Frito fire. Son of a gun it did work.

Fire piston. I’ve had no success with fungi, char cloth or deer poo.

A first. I managed to burn coffee.

Elk bone from the chew toy isle at Pet Smart. It was going to be a bone knife. Then it became a mallet. Now, it’s a conversation piece on the desk. Hrrrrrm.

Corn husk drying out for tinder.

Char cloth made from a pair of heavy cotton shorts. I put the corn cobs in the fireplace to dry out. When they are ready, I’ll try using them on the fire bow.

To run with the pack. To eat meat. That is the law.

Wandering in Suburbia. Curb your dog. But, what if he’s not on the curb? Also don’t toss the poop bag over the fence into the neighbor’s yard. Also pants.
