    Pretty unique design Mellow. Does the short rib affect your sight picture with the barrel extensions? Although I'm not as big a bird hunter as I used to be, the 870 is the only scattergun I've hunted with for several years. Choke tubes have been a game changer as far as shotguns go.

    Do you have a chronograph Jim? I'm curious how you're working that load up without any data. My advice would be to let your buddy shoot first.;) Buddy those top ten are hilarious!

    Outstanding work Reg, it's amazing how long it took those tops to land.

    You need some fresh grouper, snapper or tuna my friend. Certain species of shark are okay if handled and prepared right, but to me it still has a little twang to it that is hard to describe. Sharks MUST be killed, gutted and immersed in slush IMMEDIATELY to be fit for the table. I've never eaten a shark liver, but they are enormous. Shark liver oil is supposed to have some pretty good health benefits so maybe I'll play like the killer whales and try some raw. Or not.

    No, I hadn't heard about it Cory. I've said before that I'm no big fan of sharks. The population of every species in the Gulf where I fish are at all time highs for my lifetime. Being a fisherman, of course I don't like them eating a fair percentage of the fish I hook or destroying my cast nets. They cost local shrimpers a tremendous amount of money and time because of their propensity to bite through shrimp trawls as they are being towed. They could be called coastal coyotes or the pine beetles of the sea, however, if I decide to dispatch one, I try and make it as quick as possible. Even though I kill and eat both fish and game, I have great respect for most species. At the risk of opening a can of worms I'll say, on the other side of the coin, I have mixed emotions because it seems that many species are being valued at or above human life.

    That's pretty brutal. A lot of different species here but thankfully nothing that painful. One species, the cannonball jellyfish, is harvested commercially for sale to the Japanese. Never tried one myself but some years they can be so thick it's unbelievable. I can rub them on my face with no reaction, but I've heard of some people that feel a mild sting.

    Plenty of squirrels here but in my hunting stands I sometimes leave a line for extended periods without any chewage. As far as work, in live pines that I haven't finished at day's end, I'll pull in a piece of mule tape to keep from sapping up a throw line.

    That's funny Bob, I just ordered some IMI 9mm ammo yesterday. Had never heard of it, but it had very good reviews. I think I read that it was made in Israel.

    It's mighty refreshing to see someone as humble and hungry as you are Robert. You're right on, the book and dvd study is vital, but there's a lot of book smart folks that are field stupid. Doing the work, seeing how different species hinge, putting rigging practices to work, climbing, running saws, most of the confidence and skill comes from field experience.

    It's all relative Robert. Markets are different all over the country. Work in the city is generally more costly than that in the country. For someone in another part of the country to tell you what to charge for a tree in North Mississippi wouldn't be realistic. Your best bet would be to talk to local arborists to get a general feel for your area. And then there's the human factor in all that too. We do a lot of freebies and low bids for widows and vets. Whatever you and the customer find fair and agreeable is great. Of course you need to make a profit. Along with that, doing quality work, having a good reputation and being able to sleep well means a lot.

    It was good while it lasted. I sure hate to see a good outfit bought out and trashed. Time will tell but Sherrill is probably cutting his own throat.
