    I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house. Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.
  2. I think the biggest concern is that what if it mutates to become something that can be transferred to humans like Mad Cow Disease.

    No Pup for Penny

    Check bulletin boards are local business. Our grocery store has one that always has dogs posted on it. If you are looking for a purebred you aren't going to find much for less than $500 these days but check with lab breeders in your area to see what they have. Mixed breeds can sometimes be found for around $100, especially if it's not a pup and doesn't have some "designer breed" label (like golden doodle). Check online at the various classified ad sites. Cheaper dogs can be found if you are patient.

    Dumping Cable for Streaming

    Does anyone have any good tips on streaming both ESPN and NFL Network? I can get ESPN on Hulu Live ($44/mo) but it doesn't look like they have NFLN. On Sling, ESPN is on Orange but NFLN is on Blue so I would need to get both which would be $40/mo. On Playstation Vue I can get both with their Core plan ($45/mo). Although I haven't tried, I'm guessing that I can't get this through our Xboxes, which is what we use on 3 of our TV's, so if I went this route I would need to buy some additional Roku's (what we use on our other TV's). Directv Now (their no satellite streaming service) ($35/mo) has ESPN but doesn't appear to have NFLN.

    Dumping Cable for Streaming

    I have been contemplating it but haven't yet. The cost has been holding me back. I currently have Hulu's no commercial plan for $11.99 and if I went live I would want the no commercials live plan which is $43.99. Then if you want more than 50 hours of DVR (and the ability to fast forward through commercials) it is an additional $14.99. More than 2 screens at a time is also an additional $14.99. (You can get both for $20/mo). If you are not an existing customer you can try it for 7 days free. Unfortunately I can't since I am an existing customer (which led to a lively discussion with one of their customer service reps).

    Dumping Cable for Streaming

    Can you DVR shows with Sling yet? When I had it, you couldn't which was part of the reason I discontinued it. I wish it was true alacarte (as advertised) where I could actually pick the channels I want from the ones they offer.

    MN Rifle Buck 2017

    Came across this, this weekend. Not sure if the doe got stuck out there or if she was shot and the hunter was afraid to retrieve her (this was open water a couple days prior). Regardless, coyotes and birds have been enjoying an easy meal.

    Wet Deer opener on the way.

    In the area I hunt (west central) the farmers space the rows so close together that this is impossible. The stalks between rows touch making it impossible to see more than a few yards in each direction.
  9. I am having issues with this camera too. I either end up with 5000 pictures in a night (filled up memory card) or 10. Seems to be no in between.

    Filling in oil tank room basement

    Sounds like it would make a good storm shelter.

    2017 Hunting Regs?

    It's funny that you say that since one of the reasons they said they changed the structure and got rid of the all season license and multi zone licence was because it was apparently to complex.

    Really, one of this sites biggest offenders of getting a thread offtrack is complaining about a thread going offtrack?

    Jackrabbit Mystery

    There is an area of my yard that I don't mow, about an acre or so. The fireflies are thick there, must be hundreds each summer night, maybe more. Before moving to this home 3 years ago I had never seen a firefly so it's quite the sight for me when I go and watch them.

    Weight loss plans

    I'm down about 35 pounds (315 to 280) in 2 months. I've been doing the Keto ultra low carb diet with a goal of less than 20 grams a day and it has been working well so far. My goal is 225 so I still have a ways to go.

    What does that have to do with this thread?
