    Last 1 I did turned out great. Trimmed head really well, removed tongue, brain, eyes, jaw, a lot of meat. Simmered for 3-4 hours in water with Borax soap until most of what was left shook off. Powered washed head until most everything was off. Some tough fatty bits were left. Packed and covered the head with borax and left for a week. Any bits of fat or meat dried up and were easily removed. Rinse and let dry a few days. Finally I brushed on 40% peroxide and let it sit.  Wiped off any excess and repeated the perodixe 1 more time. Turned out great and pretty easy considering I had about $12 wrapped up in the whole project.

    I used to get a few as by coincidence when targeting suckers and carp on half crawlers in the spring in eddys and creek mouths.

    Two legged vermin are far more worrisome than the flora and fauna.

    Hopefully the boysasgrow and myself can get ours out next month for youth Turkey season!

    I got rid of my tiller when i went to all raised beds. Wish I still had the tiller, but the raised beds are worth the effort to put in. IMO.

    Last fall I emptied a pickup load of compost on my garden, so I am ready to plant whenever the soil warms up.

    I have not looked back since I went to raised beds.

    I have herbs growing in my window sill. I checked on spinach that I over wintered and it should go crazy as soon as we stop getting snowed on. I planted garlic under a cover last fall, it has sprouted and looks good as well.

    Hey TeamAsgrow, you asked a while back for a pic of the tandem disc I built for my track loader. Every time I’ve been up by it, I’ve forgotten to take a pic, so here’s this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JigN0qBMLlc I built mine really similar to the one in this video. Bought an old heavy-duty tandem disc, just a little wider than my tracks. Sawed off and ground down the 3-pt harness on the front, flipped around the discs and welded a quick-attach plate onto the 3-pt end, so that I can push it. My disc blades are round, not notched, but it still works really well. I can put a ton of down-force on it and really tear up the earth, but I tend to break discs when I find rocks and stumps this way. It kicks up a ton of dust directly in-front of you, and you drive over the disced ground, (track machines don’t compact soil much), but other than that, it works awesome.

    Interesting. Not sure how that would work with the toolcat since it only has one arm vs two on a skid steer. I might have to fab up something from old equipment we have to drag behind the tractor. I would rather put the wear and tear a 50+ year old tractor instead of the toolcat.

    In the day and age we live in, I am sure there are simulators that they use indoors to simulate skiing and shooting.

    Is the new website turning into the “group build” thread?

    Yes, it is the biathlon and I was able to watch a couple races. Martin Fourcade from France is just phenomenal in this event. It has to be incredibly difficult to hold a rifle steady while your heart and breathing are racing. I wonder how these guys train for this event.

    Probably by skiing and shooting a lot :mrgreen:

    Wouldn’t a variable speed trolling motor be slow enough (like 1mph) and I was told electric trolling motors will normally max out speed at 4mph.

    It really depends on the boat being pushed. In my case I back troll with my motor in the lowest reverse speed, that helps me move fairly slowly.

    I didn’t introduce this Topic to discuss how to ‘Fix’ our depraved society/culture or the mental illness epidemic within it, as stated up-front.

    The ideas introduced for discussion solely pertain to protecting our school children from being injured and murdered by acts of terrorism, (A.K.A. ‘School Shootings’). These ideas, by not means, attempt to ‘Fix’ our broken culture or ‘Fix’ our mental illness epidemic. Those things must be addressed elsewhere, by ALL OF US. (An entirely different multi-faceted discussion.)

    Back to supporting / promoting public school staff to carry firearms… Just the fact alone of knowing school staff could be or are armed, is an absolute deterrent to terrorists. Talk about a way to keep terrorists out of school buildings… The threat of school staff being able to shoot back will at least make would-be terrorists second guess their plans of terrorism. At most, it will stop them from attacking before they ever get started. Talk about preventative measures…

    I’ve posed the following question a few times and have yet to receive any response. What types of annual or periodic ‘Training’ do public school staff / faculty / teachers receive? Is any of this ‘Training’ mandatory, or is it all optional? If any ‘Training’ is mandatory, what is it, and better yet, how does it fly for it to be mandated / required?

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! Please keep it coming. BID

    Are you talking specifically about what training related to school safety are required? Or just mandatory training that teachers must take?

    First I think that if we are going to solidify school buildings a state wide code needs to be implemented, buzz in locks, alarms on doors throughout the day, training for staff to operate doors, etc. Specific measures I am not certain on, but I am sure a statewide base level of security could be developed. Districts could have more but no less than certain measures. These projects could be mandated and compliance within X number of years or funding is cut, require local option tax money ($.01 sales tax money) be used to reach code before other building improvements take place or the funding is lost. Maintain code through building inspections, possibly rolled into fire marshal inspections.

    Security improves, funding through money that is already available and compliance monitoring.

    Great ideas for adding deterrence measures for keeping terrorists out of school buildings TeamAsgrow. What measures should be implemented to protect our children when a terrorist makes it into the school building? (Playing out similar historical mass school shooting scenarios.) When they make it into the building, external mechanical / electronic security measures have failed.

    Evacuation procedures and active shooter training.

    This is a training we have had, it really opens eyes as to what is happening, what law enforcement does etc.

    The goal would be to minimize unwanted guests into the building who are armed.

    We will not cover every scenario, but being prepared, aware and have a plan of action is better than having nothing in place.
