    For those that sew....

    If you can find a material that is not woven, more of a synthetic masked bunch of fiber like a thin felt, it will help a lot more than woven cotton/linen type fabric. At the hospital where I work we were first told we could wear masks like those shown here when not in direct contact with a...

    NO YEAST at the store....

    I don't eat much bread, but, being on day 3 of four 7pm to 7am shifts in a row, I'd give my N95 mask for one of those right now.

    Potted Beef

    The properly rendered fat seals out air and contaminants, like duck confit. I suppose one could also put it in Mason jars and properly can it. This should help it last even longer.

    Shot horn?

    This is what I used after I decided I really don't like playing with loose shot in the field, and before I started using my shot cup/cartridges. Each "river cane" (craft store bamboo) tube leaves the natural node and wall as a stopper at one end and holds up to 90 grains of #5 shot.

    Shot horn?

    I was kinda thinking it would be like hunting while carrying a set of maracas.

    Tow replacement?

    I was referring to the borax solution for fire retardant.

    Tow replacement?

    I wouldn't think so. Try it and see. Cut some strips 1x2" some 1.25x1.5" and some 1.5x3" and try them all.

    Tow replacement?

    I've used the sisal rope fiber as well. I lube it. I seem to remember reading somewhere, an old thread here years ago probably, that modern rope is treated with a fire retardant. Wasp nest is popular and fire retardant. A lot of folks use it. Seems bulky to carry to me. Spence reports good...

    Traditional Javelina Hunt Part 3

    Thanks for this. You are the 1st person I can remember speaking positively of javelina for supper. I think your brining and pressure cooker process made the difference.

    Dye for a frock coat

    Haven't tried this yet, but it is on my list of things to get and do; https://botanicalcolors.com/shop/natural-dye-extracts/chestnut-extract/ They have other natural eyes, and a page of mordants available. Often the same natural dye can give different colors depending on the mordant used. There...

    I don't like to use a ball starter.

    By some people's logic Simon Kenton was just as likely to wear a toga, while shooting a match lock, with a mace tucked in his sash. As he was to wear a rifle shirt, shoot a flintlock, and carry a tomahawk.

    I don't like to use a ball starter.

    When? Are you sure? People thought differently then. Floating around above the earth in some heavier than air contraption? Sounds like heresy and the dark arts to me..... (And this sounds to much like the overused, "if they'd a had it, they'd a used it," b.s.)
