    Re: Any hunters/fisherman in here!

    I have been a life long hunter and fisherman. Although for the last three years I have not done any. Our game herds in Idaho have pretty much been decimated and the escalating costs are absurd. Only...

    You have a right to protect your private property in this country, or at least you are suppose to. In some places, the state has a program to reimburse you for losses from bears. They are industrious...

    Re: Honey Soda Pop

    Actually yes.

    You can buy carbonated water and just use that as a replacement for the water. I do this with the ginger ale we make here when I just want to do small 2 liter batches. I don't see...
