    Got some bear oil today

    like you, I render the fat slowly on the stove in a "wife" approved pot, skim off any solids, and pour through a small hand held strainer, mix in bee's wax from my neighbor, and sweet oil. Amount of bees wax depends on whether I'll be using it at the hunting camp in the winter or use any other...

    Refilled my powder horn with the good stuff.

    have some of their 2F, initially bought it just cause I think the can is "pretty". I already have enough other BP to last my, and grandkids lifetime, however I just liked the darn can. Well we all got our idiosyncrasies......

    Getting the party started BIG titty-kitty

    Roger! flew into Lewiston, hunted the "headquarters" area. Always went to the Lo Lo hardware store and bought Speer "seconds" bullets to fly back to Alaska with. I understand they don't do that anymore.

    Getting the party started BIG titty-kitty

    got to eat big cat while hunting Elk near Orofino, guide was a big cat hunter and had some in the freeze. It was good! The other white meat. I wouldn't mind having it again, but they are kind of rare here in south Alabama and most of Alaska.

    Hurricane outage

    After 6 or so hours on a chain saw and my JD 3203/front-end loader, I have to toss it in for the day. Have shoulder surgery coming up after Deer gun season, but now may have to "get er done" sooner...... Anyhow, I was very lucky, lots of neighbors weren't. 4th generation here on the coast...

    Fixin' Wax

    I use a mixture of beeswax, Bear grease, sweet oil (olive oil) with mixture ratio depending on what the application and probable weather. I also use it for wood, metal, and leather, cushion wads, patches etc. If I added a little essential oil of some flavor, I'd probably use it for chap stick...
