    I had read that you are supposed to have a permit and or trap nuisance racoons in the Fall / Winter. Sounds kind of stupid. Racoons produce more damage in the Spring and Summer. I was wondering if it is just a law on the books, but they don't hassle people over it on their own land.
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    A guy on another forum suggested you can use coyote or bear traps on the property to catch trespassers in SHTF. He suggests warning signs about traps be posted. What do you think? I probably could not do it. Don't have the property for one thing, but big reason is; even if I had the property...
  3. Edible & Non-Edible Plants
    It might come in handy one day to know what type of plants in your area you could use for natural cordage... In my area, the Southwest US, there's lots of these stringy fiber type plants, the first 3 that come to mind are: ...these are great and the Fan Palms probably have the longest...

    (Urban Survival with Moles, Voles Gophers and Ground Squirrels) Once many years ago, when I was working at the jail, I came home one afternoon and was engaged in conversation by my neighbor across the street. As we spoke, literally over her fence, we noticed a common pocket gopher bobbing its...

  8. Urban Survival
    One thing that I've noticed about us as a group. Every time somebody creates a list of supplies, nobody ever puts down traps as a survival item. I am not talking about all those bear traps either. What I am talking about is those simple, easy-to-use larger rat or mouse traps. Think about it...

    I've been living in Virginia for the past few months and have returned to one of my old pastimes...coyote hunting. Now, let me give you the lay of the land.
