  1. Anyone else old enough to remember using a shucking glove & hand shucking the turn rows so the tractor, picker & trailer didn't knock down any stocks with ears still on them?
  2. FYI, I would strongly suggest anyone that is going to discharge a large caliber weapon in an enclosed space like a house put hearing protection on before hand or figure on spending $5,000 for hearing aids that won't completely correct the permanent damage the muzzle blast did to your hearing.
  3. After my home defense weapon takes care of business he licks up the blood splatter.๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜ƒ
  4. Here in Kansas coyotes are not that big of a threat to livestock other than poultry, they are opportunists and will eat a still born calf, lamb, etc. but live mostly on rats, mice, rabbits, turkey eggs & chicks, etc. Pic of four crossing my soybean field & one that made a nice mount in my "man cave". I do taxidermy when not farming.
  5. Two more farmyard wildlife pic's, A rutting buck on the bean field & a stand off between two Canadian geese and a skunk
  6. Selective outrage 31 killed, 50 plus wounded in two mass shootings in two days. Tragic yes, we have seen national outrage, far left news media & politicians calling for more gun laws. Per MADD, an average of 30 people are killed & 822 injured in drunk driving crashes every day, year round in the US. In 2017, 10,874 were killed (one every 48 min.)& more than 300,000 were injured because of drunk driver crashes. The only outrage to these deaths comes from next of kin of these 10,874 souls, no national outrage, no far left news media or politicians calling for laws banning or restricting the sale of alcohol to everyone including responsible users of alcohol, no call for restricting the capacity of a bottle of alcohol you can own to only a pint or dictating the shape & type of the container of alcohol you can own. Conclusion, the far left media & politicians care more about protecting their ownership & responsible use of alcohol than our ownership & responsible use of firearms. Does anyone else see Australia, New Zealand or Brazil in our future if the far left politicians ever take control.
  7. Some more pic's of farm yard wildlife
  8. Ten years ago I painted my 1947 Farmall H & it's cultivator, my 1951 M, my two 1953 Super H's, my 1970 826 Gold Demonstrator & my McCormick 1-PR corn picker. They have all been used farming ever since so needless to say they don't look this good anymore.
  9. Living on a farm you can enjoy nature every day.
  10. My dad putting up loose hay in the late 40's in Kansas with our Farmall F 20
  11. I've carried a 12 ga. Ithaca mod. 37 for 60 years with never a malfunction or any other issues, give it a chance, I think you will be pleased.
  12. Things have come a long way since the 50's!! Pictures of my 1958 Gleaner A combine & 1959 Chevy Viking grain truck which I'm still using on my little farm here in Kansas.
  13. Here are before & after pictures of my 826 I repainted, it was real rough when I bought it off a farm sale. Didn't do a full restoration like you did as I'm using mine as a farm tractor.
  14. Don't know if you are old enough to remember but back in the 50's (here in Kansas) we got a $2 bounty per set of ears in a effort to reduce the population. also had roundups where farmers would be dropped off every 100 yards around a section of land and all walk to the center pushing them till close enough for someone to take a shot (thinking back I'm surprised no one got shot !!) I kept one male pup I dug out of a den, castrated him while doing the young pigs. Bottle fed him till I got him eating grass hoppers then mice, he would ride in the front of our pickup just like a farm dog & I kept him till I went to the Marine Corp in 1960, I gave him to a well driller that drilled a well on our farm, folks told me when ever he stopped to check how the well was doing my "buddy" was with him in his pickup.
