Coyote trapping

I wrote a very general article on coyote trapping. LINK
If I write enough of these things it would be pretty easy to put out a trapping book.
About $15 covering just about everything I know. Well we'll see what happens.

More firewood today.
I cut three pickup loads of red oak last weekend.
I left the last load in the truck and fed the furnace from it. I have about 1/3 of it left.
I cut most of the smaller stuff off of the main trunks laying down in the woods.
I will use the tractor to pull the trunks up to the house for cutting the bigger stuff.
When dad brings his big saw over he can zip through them without too much problem.

Last year we had fun trying to pull some of the really big ones up with the tractor.
One big one kept pulling the front wheels of the tractor up in the air. So we hooked my sister Annette's Nissan truck to the front of the tractor with a tow strap just to hold it down.
Tanya got a hilarious video of it on our cell phone.

Still haven't gotten all my corn in.
It's dark by the time I get home from work. Gonna have to pay the kids to do it.

Still clinging to my God and my guns
