The barrel is fresh water. I always wash a deer out really good after I gut it and cut out the tenderloins.
I shoot deer because I love eating them so I cover every step to make sure nothing spoils the flavor of the meat. I even shoot them so the bullet goes through the chest and out behind the shoulder or behind the shoulder and out the chest. Smashed bones and ruptured guts makes a mess, and the .308 Winchester is one hell of a hunting round.

Unless someday I have Big Otis in my scope. Then I will happily blow through both shoulders and flatten the fecker on the spot.
So far that has never happened though.

Deer gun season starts here Monday, tomorrow. As for me, I could care less if I get to shoot one or not, means a lot of work that I no longer enjoy. However I did take today off. Tomorrow, I'll go sit out for a while, then I have to go order metal for a building project then continue putting up the last of the rafters. Maybe I should call in!

fwiw....if your confident in your shot and shooting a rifle (high impact)...neck shot works very very well on meat preservation......i am with you on "big otis"........damn neighbor got the 200"er with a gun this year thats been on the bow hit list the last few years....(sigh)

Color me unconvinced Ttbro. How do we know he didn't scare that deer to death with that ugly hat he had on? And look how clean the tires are on that wheeler. Looks superimposed to me and the trees are probably fake. IMHO
very suspicious to me....i was kinda guessing he actually need the barrel of water? on the front to keep keep the atv from flipping over backwards on him.....but tires are clean...the suspension seems not to be loaded up like its heavy... he and the deer look way to clean....so im guessing that is his midnight prowler "peeping tom" cover rig..... :)

Woke up to the last thing a working man wants to wake up to. Got my driver window smashed and a whole bunch of tools stolen out of the work van. FCKers tried to get through the back lock, but couldn't . So, they threw a wrench through the drivers window. Got off with allot of my hand tools, cordless tools, and my multi-meter. The only good news is they didn't know what the expensive stuff was, so all the good stuff is still there.

Should move back in with my parents. It was nice having an old angry marine who doesn't sleep or leave the house around.

Glad they missed the good stuff.
One time somebody carted off a tool box out of my shed.
3 weeks later they came back & rolled out an air compressor.
All I'm saying is they might have seen, more things to come back for.
Might be worth putting an alarm on the van. Or a pit bull inside.
Hopefully they overdose & don't ever come back.

Anybody know of a good alarm system that would work on the van? Don't really know what else to do. Was parked on the street which is well lit.

That sucks. I've awaken to shit like that. Do u have a cage between driver area and rear? My 1 ton van was a used utility truck and it had solid metal on lower part with a strong plastic above. Kept the heat in the cab also. As for alarm, any would do but I would recommend the James Brown auto alarm.

Nothing I despise more than a thief (politicians qualify as thieves). Scumbags who believe they have a right to take the fruits of your labor. Sounds like you dont have a more secure place to park the van? I know I sleep a lot better knowing that there isnt much that gets past my dog.

There is a cage between the front and the back. Doesn't help much when the door locks open all doors. I could always put the large locks on the doors that take paddle locks. Problem is the window cost more than the tools they took.

Going to move it to the driveway and install a large flood light with motion detector this weekend. Should be better than the street. Seems like the best option I could come up with.

Tools are liquid, you can sell them without title or proof of ownership.
Damn straight and milwaukee tools are like the silver eagles of the tool world, scary liquid.

Finished the framing today on the house in the woods. We're far from done here though. Pretty sure we got metal roof job coming up Monday.

Going out tomorrow to build porch steps and doze a pad for a 24x24 out building we will framing and putting metal on also. Probably be trimming everything later too, so far from really done here.

A shot of me getting high here guys.

Is the only way to go fellas. This was the Friday after thanksgiving. Allowed pops and me to lay 115 sheets and complete the roof decking in one day like a couple studs!

Custom made sacffold brackets made the band and duce by duce fly.

Sure beats building wooden stuffs and then have to clean it up.


When I look up and see this

IMG_0157.JPG


I lay a 2x10 up the rake until the top corner plains with the bottom of the band board then mark bottom and outside edge of the 2x6 nailer.

IMG_0158.JPG


Then the truth stick is applied to taste, marked and cut.

IMG_0159.JPG


Then poof!

You guys wouldn't believe the carpenters around here who can't get these right. I no you guys know this stuff.
Posted for the next generation of silver stacking working men though.

Final shot of this heap i promise.

The drip edge on the flats and none up the rakes is new to me. Never in my life have I done it that way, builders call.

Side note:

There's but one restaurant for 16 miles and it's about 3 miles from the job. Called Smokin Buns, only open 4 days a week wed-sat.
Sirs...

Is doing all that calculating just so the grain goes the same way? Utterwise, could measure up and over then connect the dots.

There's zero calculating or measurements Hammersmith, only the 3 reference points that matter. Comes out clean and square and you can't miss. Is a rare win, win, win.

Zero, gets metal sheets and eve trim sir.

Hasn't been anything new here in 20 days?

Just checking in. House is still in shambles and open areas abound. Can't find anyone who has the problem solving ability to be able to finish the project. Might consider just selling it as is just so I don't have it gnawing at me every day.

Did 2 weeks of radiation for the lung cancer. Waiting now for all residual rads to dissipate before I do another PET scan to see if they got it all.

Don't stop by here much any longer, but I do have this thread bookmarked and check it every now and then to see what's up. All that said, y'all have a,

Merry Christmas
and a
Happy New Year!

Warm regards,
mayhem.

By the way was going over how much the new taxes next year will effect my son and daughter this is huge for young people, lower rate, the huge standard deduction plus no Obama health bill mandate is great. Might not even have to bother with keeping receipts for deductions the standard deduction might be higher. we shall see.

Up til now you could avoid the mandate fine by "owing" the IRS money at the end of the year only paying the taxes you owe not the Obama penalty since the IRS had no power to garnish your money to collect the penalty amount. But soon no need to do that.

Stoney.....one for you sir....the very last project i did as a favor for a architect......spent a afternoon in the shop figuring out how to tell the framer to do the roof corners....dont remember how i worked it out but it turned out simple and saved me $100 a corner in framing costs....

EDIT TO ADD:...This structure is a Buddhist Temple thus why they wanted the tile and corner look
