    Wearing Blue

    Have made the same observation. Only look at them by looking past or to the side of them and they don't spook. Eye contact made and they are out of here.I line up my gun and never look right at them until I am ready to look down the sight and pull the trigger. I have found this especially true...

    Native Reenacting

    Very true! However as to the rape not being part of their culture, that depends. East of the Mississippi that would be true. Likewise west of the rockies. On the Plains rape and gang rape were not just common but the norm. Also, most of the plains tribes rarely took captives, male,female or...

It is stunning to think this through, I know somebody who is alive now that actually saw...

    Flintlock loading technique...pick in?

    I hav I have an old Narragansett Arms Tulle that I have found ignites noticeably faster if I put the pick in the touch hole and leave it in til the loading process is complete. Not so much with my Lyman GPR. I have come to use this procedure on all my flinters however, to use the pick like a...

    What is the strangest old timey vegetable you have eaten

    I think he meant "cammas" as he wrote. Cammas root was a mainstay of the Nez Perce diet in Idaho. They are a purple flower and should only be harvested when in bloom lest you inadvertantly harvest their near look alike, the "death cammas" which has a white flower but is otherwise very similar in...

    Made purslane like sauerkrout this year as an experiment and also jars of the 2 mixed. Haven't tried it yet. Purslane is probably THE most healthy plant that you can eat.

    Change to Oregon Muzzleloader Hunting Regs in 2019

    I once had a TC renegade that I bought used with a scope already mounted. Never used it to hunt and didn't like trying to clean it. I got rid of it. However, now in my 60's I find that I can no longer see the sight on my flintlock squirrel rifle and had to have a new, bigger sight put on my...
