    Do you sit in the very back of the airplane? You SHOULD! Ever hear of a plane backing into a mountain?

    well I have a critter under the house! I have mouse traps and rat traps set..it's been a few weeks since I last caught a mouse.

    So I decided to make up one of those 5 gal bucket traps. That didnt work as what ever was down there was licking the bait can CLEAN! So I thought it had to be bigger than a mouse, so I made the same trap out of a feed tub..only to have the bait can licked clean again..wtf? :bluduh

    so I borrowed a neighbors game cam..I know what it is now.

    Thanks guys. That looks pretty good. I'll definitely check it out. I got a friend that lives a few miles South of there. Looks like a good place for us to go and shoot.

    You missed a modification of the 5 gal trap. He put a stop (bend) in the wire across the bucket so the can stays in the middle. Now that your critter knows what it tastes like, he won't resist, and he'll jump to the spinning can and drop in unharmed.
    Then, bring him to Matt's place to keep mini-Mouth's wall squirrel company.

    I made my bucket trap simple.:5 gal bucket ramp leading up to it. hand full of dog food....caught about 20 of them so far with it. Ive also done the old warner bros box proped with a stick tied by a string to a mouse trap nailed to the floor under the box... this worked real well when one of my rats got loose. the trap is too small to hurt the rat but pulled the stick to drop the box....learning from cartoons once again

    started wondering if any section of the Ozark highlands trail would be ridable...I just did a search and noticed it may not be such a good Idea to even try to find

    Looks like Chuckles is "in" for Jury duty still. Turns out another buddy (Ricky, who Doc and others met) was also called in for the same duty. Of course, Chuck and Ricky have ridden together before, maybe they aren't on duty at all and are just "riding"? :evil

    if you ride the OHT, you assume the risk..if you are caught on it with a bike, rest assured it wont be pretty and you could lose your bike! so heads up!

    That would do it.

    I texted Ricky that if he and Chuck had started frantically making out with each other, they'd have both been excused immediately.

    NO, please dont. We have enough problems keeping our trails open. Bikes on the Highlands trail will piss alot of people off.
