  1. Neighbors cows got out, and garden update

    Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Walking to the back of the property to check on the garden, looked to the back, and several of my neighbors cows were there. My dogs saw the cows, and the fun began. A couple of my dogs are cur dogs, which seem to take great joy in herding cattle. Sometimes my dogs slip into my neighbors...

    Buster and I were on a nature walk along a local creek when I walked up on a Cottonmouth. Luckily, Buster did not see the snake and it was able to get into a clump of leaves. If Buster had seen the snake, I had a walking stick to put between the two. I have heard people say the Cottonmouth...

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Awhile back we talked about a 50 cent pocket compass I ordered off Ebay. Rather than buying the compass from an online store, just go straight to the source and cut out the middle man. Paracord zipper pulls were added to my packs, and then the compass was attached to the paracord. Is the...
  5. When your hiking and come upon a field of stickers

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    We need homes and lumber, but I wish clear cut did not deface the land so much. What would have otherwise been a nice hiking trip is partially spoiled by areas of overgrown stickers. The areas of clear cut can be rough on the dogs also. They do not like going through the stickers anymore than...

  10. Puppies tore one of my hens up

    Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    The chickens were in their yard but she got out somehow. It looks like the puppies were trying to pull her feathers out and pulled a couple of sections of flesh off. There is a piece of missing flash under her wing and another section close to her vent. Each section is about 3 inches across...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Has anyone ever thought about keeping some sort of big canine for SHTF? I figured it would be a good idea to have a guard dog but on the other hand it would also give your position away by barking.What do some of you think?

    General Discussion
    I would like to go hiking at a Michigan State park in west Michigan (I'm near Grand Rapids) and would like to know which parks allow dogs on the trails. I assume the owner has to keep the dog on the trail and clean up after it (solid waste). Yes I have been to the Michigan.gov website, and...
