I think the best thing about the sickle bar, is that the critter truly and honestly thinks they got away from you, and WHAM! they are legless in the legumes, or if they are short, they are headless in the hay.

That is, if you are mowing alfalfa.

Hey, "Headless in the Hay" sounds like Capstick's lost manuscript. It's been the subject of countless expeditions. "Legless in the Legumes" was colossal failure authored by Jimmy Carter just after his second election run as I recall. Still, the effects are special!

Hello Mr. Digital Dan Sir: It is not commonly known but when a certain fellow was president, virtually all pols had a potted peanut on the desk, presumably as proof of their nuttiness. ned

Ann, I hope you see this. I picked up an address from another site for you to look over. It covers the little problem that you "ran" into. www.ducks.ca/aboutduc/news/conservator/184/flushing.html

This is about "Flushing Bars" to prevent the killing of wildlife by machinery. derf

Derf,

The link did not work for me. However, the thought is appreciated. Just yesterday I was out scouting and another rabbit just sat there a few yards away from me. I was on foot this time so no pelts went flying.

While a sickle bar is OK for light work and semi-serious purposes, a boom axe is more powerful and versatile, and thus much more flexible for hunting, since game cannot readily escape into the trees and ditches, and, a wider variety of (larger) game may be taken.

A decent boom axe would easily deal with those pesky fence posts as well.

Eshell, you seem to be familiar with logging equipment, so I have a question for ya... What is that quizmo that's mounted on the end of a hydraulic boom that strips the branches and bark(I think) off? I was thinking what fun one of these could be on a small scale to use on porch panthers

TM,

I think that's called a roboharvester or an autoharverstor...



A miniature version would be just the thing for treerats and hare's!!



of course, around the jeffe'house... the rabbits are bigger than my wife's cats... and twice as slow...



you know, they REALLY should cross a liouseville slugger with a hockey stick... brush axe's and slingblades just don't quite have the right ANGLE for running with

Howdy, TM. Sorry, I'm only familiar by osmosis, I have friends in the business.

Jeffe might be right about the terminlogy, though I'd have to think you are talking about a "flail", a form of de-barker. Rapidly flung chains (on a small rotating drum) strip bark and small limbs. Used more in the pulpwood industry, rather than lumber, far as I know.

You might be right, could be just the thing for rapid and effortless hide removal. Though a method of securing the subject might be desirable, to avoid "over-stripping" the little cougar and just winding up with a stained backboard for your efforts. During the off-season, I imagine it could also be used to scale large (6'+) fish.

Rick, I'm thinking that the Bronto on the rail car would be just the ticket for inner city locales in places like Detroit. Maybe even those folks that live under the overpasses in boxes could have a bit of Feloin on us?! Already chunked of course. While killing many birds with one stone it occurs that perhaps a surplus B52 would be cheaper to purchase. Not sure about the operating costs though.

On the subject of B52's, I noticed in the paper that a new form of concrete has been introduced that is translucent. What does that do to the concrete bomb theory? Wow, stealth concrete bombs! Dodge that dude!

I wonder how well translucent concrete would work for kitty shoes? Regular concrete seems to spook them some.

eshell, I don't know about "shoes", I'd go for a full kitty overcoat! That way, you could see the profile of said porch panther as a shadow. Might be considered a new form of artwork. I wonder if I could get a federal grant for "expanding the arts."

I really like the way you guys are thinking, but one of my neurons just fired; I vote for "kitty clays". It would be an instant success at replacing "rabbits" in sporting clays courses throughout the land.
