    Goosemaster,

    Very impressive training your dog to point trout!

    I'll buy one of the puppies from your next litter if you can teach them to point largemouth bass:thumbsup:

    Brittman,

    I used to start my fires with a propane weed-burner, prior to shelling out for a drip torch. However, having one guy lugging around a heavy propane tank, essentially takes one man off...

    I haven't hunted chickens in 30 years, so my data is certainly out of date.

    PD,

    Do your summer burns kill the edges of your plum thickets and leave the middles relatively unscathed?
