I put that trespassing question out for you Curmudgeon because you were Arguing about people trespassing on YOUR land.<quoted text> and your full of shit. You cant find a single post where I stated I tresspass. And yep raptor is correct in my younger days I distilled well head gas that wasnt mine. When it was freezing cold I would put out the flame on a oil well. Then hook a long garden hose to that outlet the gas would condense in the hose and fill a 55 gal barrell. My thinking was it was just being wasted by the oil company. they didnt want it nothing wrong with me getting it. It was wrong and I shouldnt have been a gas thief. I knew better and didnt really have a valid excuse. As high a gas is getting its tempting to do it again. Man I just hate to see those flames burning and all that gas being wasted. And its contributing to glowbull warming LOL.
It was meant as a joke.
I have had beavers on my land and also sometimes a hog.
The beavers are a small problem and in the past USDA aphis trappers would take care of them. The hogs do more damage in one week than a family of beavers would do in several months.I never thought about eating one or a wild hog that is full of parasites and pseudo rabies virus.
I don't like to kill animals just for the heck of it, but if they are damaging the land then that is something I have to do. I shot a hog last year with a moslin-nagant rifle and he dropped dead in his tracks. I used the military surplus rounds that force you to clean the gun soon after you use it or the barrel will get corroded. Its much cheaper to shot than a 7mm mag and does as good a job on anything up to 300 yards.
