    Wile E. got some tin in his arse


    ADVERTISEMENT
    Went off with my metal detector, an ESEE 6 and a Wett. hatchet. I had plans to play with some of the toys today. On the way out of town I grabbed a little Buck 102 Woodsman. Cute as a bugs ear, and now I want a 105. I had the 119 at least a decade ago and don't want\need another. On the way out of town I saw a young of the year coyote nailed on the road, looking better than most roadkills. He was fresh and complete. The synapse fired between my two brain cells and I hit the binders. I tossed him into the trunk. Later in the day I was yacking to a dude that used to trap yodel dogs. He judged it too ripped up on the right rear to be worth while pulling the hide. Apparently the youngins have a thin hide that tears easily. Too bad. I've never skinned a coyote and was kind of looking forward to using the little 102 on it. Also, the carcass was visibly crawling with fleas. Buddy told me that if I want to find one in the winter with a prime coat, to drop the dog in a garbage bag, spray it up with raid, and tie it off. In a while the fleas are all dead. He said that the fleas will bite the hell out of you if you don't. Oh well, I had fun today, learned a bit about coyotes, found some 40's 50's beer bottles, a 1920 penny, and old brass dog tag. I guess that the cutting tools will have to be used another day. The geese are just barely starting to migrate. This is a tiny group compared to later in the year.

    I was just looking at a Buck 102 in a store the other day. It looks like a nice knife.

    I can sure see it as handy for cutting a slit above a grouse or ducks farter, to pull the guts out.

    Ya, kind of pricy for an average Joe like myself just for a shovel. Particularly when sent up here. But I just got tired of wrecking shovels every year. I haven't gone full gorilla on it, nor have I babied it, far from it. It hasn't taken a set and springs back to form.

    Yes, good tip. Many years ago my X found an unbaged red fox in the freezer. It must have been a spiritual experience for her as she began to speak in tongues. I also put a sturgeon in a work freezer many years ago, it went from corner to corner. Apparently the girl that open the lid first thing in the morning also had a moving experience upon gazing at this large prehistoric looking creature.

    Tejon, my bud has a Vaq. Nice deep machine. On the shaft in the pic you will see this years keeper rings. Three silver, two gold, one with a diamond. Getting an AT Pro for the water this winter.
