Thanks guys, it was a good birthday for sure. Now back to the grind, headed to the farm this morning to check a few stands and look for mass crops, not many acorns or persimmons this year, I think it was because of the late freeze here, not sure but figure that is the cause so if I can find a few good trees producing that is always good. Just take more boot work which I enjoy anyway, if I don't find anything I will have to relay on browse or trails to and from the bean fields, the beans are beginning to yellow so they won't last long now, maybe a couple more weeks and the deer will move back into the woods deeper, anyway been here before so you just have to change tactics a bit. The deer are still there you just have to look a little harder to find them. ;) :) :) Have a Blessed day.  ;) :) :)

Pappy, I'll see if I can find the parts to make you a brain blaster for skull work.   You stick the tube in the opening at the base of the skull and turn on it on.  The water makes the brains plop right out.   It only takes a few seconds to have a clean brain cavity.

Osage Outlaw, The brain blaster sounds like a good and useful idea. Any directions or drawings or parts list would be appreciated.

There's not much to it.  It's just a hose nozzle and a fitting reducing it to 1/4" tubing.   I used copper tubing on mine but the hardware store was out of it today so I had to use hard plastic instead.  Stick the tubing as far into the brain cavity as it will go and the water pushes the brains out.  Point the skull away from you because it spashes back some.  I highly recommend this for anyone cooking skulls or saving brains for tanning.   This is so much easier than trying to get them out after cooking them. 

Pappy, I'll get this shipped your way soon.

Cooler starts to fill up, I think we had 16 checked in, a little down from last year but not bad for the hot weather we have been having. :)
