It doesnt sound weird at all. Hunting is definitely not for everyone.

Whats important is that you have accomplished alot in a short time and that you continue to amass other skills. Kudos to you..

Re: Is 8' sand point safe or deeper

I agree. The deeper the better. Just hope you don't hit rock. At 8 feet you're still dealing with ground water and it will more than likely not pass for drinking water without a good filtering system. You could pour javex or hydrogen peroxide around the standpoint and leave it for a couple of days a...

Re: Assessing skills & readiness - done / to do

Good for you hopeimready. Target shooting is a great skill but have you ever considered taking this to the next level and trying a hunt? It's one thing to be able to hit a target but shooting a live moving object is another skill all in itself.

I'm glad you like it. I too prefer the 2nd fermentation over the 1st. You should try different fruit combinations to see what you like best.

This will speed up the drying pro...

Re: Eastern Ottawa and Area Summer Get Together Aug 12th

Thanks to everyone that made it out. It was good to see you all again. I hope you all enjoyed the day and that you all learned a thing or two. I know I always do. Farmgal is indeed a wealth of knowledge. Rabbits 101, protein from thin air and the cheese making (and tasting - my favorite part) were a...
