  1. Re: How many of you started with just one hive?

    I did when I started.

    Bees bringing in kill

    Here is a new one for me.
    I was out at the hives putting on mouse guards using hardware cloth & it slowed them down enough for me to observe a behavior I've never seen before. They were hauling in...

    Re: Hunters: anyone use electronic ears?

    I use sound supressors/silencers on most of my weapons.
    Legal to own and hunt with here in KY.
