New Mexico let's anyone hunt hogs. No license, resident or non-resident, no tagging no season. They are along the Texas NM border mostly in river and creek beds. That is good to know. In LA & MS they are deemed to be pests so they can be hunted 365/24/7 with or without lights and bait form vehicles...

I don't know much but I reckon this will happen. Something will cause economical turbulence to equal around 50% inflation for at least a first year. Name your poison.

Re: Rural home invasion – barricade or run for it?

Going with OP's scenario, wait until the group gets 1/3 to 1/2 way between the house and the vehicles then empty the shotgun out the window into the group aiming for abdominal shots. I specify that distance because from a human psychology perspective the survivors are most likely to fall back and t...

Question: wouldn't it be easier to dig the trench anyway? what I'm reading is you want to build a tower to hold many gallons of water, and fill them from a hose. supporting the water is one thing, the safety issue of dealing with a 150 foot hose while climbing the tower. this might be a case of do ...
