It's Bushcraft Wednesday!



It's Bushcraft Wednesdy and time once again to remind ourselves that life isn't just about sitting in a cubicle in the metrosprawl and getting your factory produced "food" from the nearest Tom Thumb. No, you can get out in the wild and do it yourself.

That can be dangerous and here at the Compound we hope you find this short infovideo as helpful as we do.

Your Friend,

LSP

We don't know whether or not Hickock made it back home or if he ended up as an owl's supper. I hate cliffhangers like that one.

LSP said...

I know... tension's up, LL.

Especially since he emptied the gun into the decoy, and didn't immediately reload, if it's truly a "killer owl." I think he should invest in some buck-n-ball loads, if he wants to make an impression on such beasts.

Nothing worse than a killer owl.

All kidding aside - this past summer one landed in one of my trees and it honestly scared me almost to death. It was yuuuuge. Plenty big enough to carry off my little 6lb Erica kitteh. Each wing was probably about 2 - 2 1/2 feet.

Have a nice Thanksgiving, LSP.

Haha. Well, no snakes will be afraid of that owl now. ;-)

Yup. Adrienne, owls are big. And quite cool. Especially if they have a varmint hanging from their beaks when they fly off!

A blessed Thanksgiving to us all, and to all of yours, LSP.

Not sure about hunting with a tactical shotgun though.

Linda - varmints are one thing. My little kitteh is another. She's a very small cat - 6.2 lbs on a fat day. Nothing for a big owl like that to carry off. I had to be on owl watch duty the whole day and keep track of Erica.

Mattexian, I get the feeling that H45 wasn't as serious about this as he might have been. Still,useful weapon.

LSP said...

Serious beasts, Adrienne.

Happy Thanksgiving!

LSP said...

That, (snakes) Linda, is a very good point.

LSP said...

Theodore, good point well made.
