Meanwhile in Canada
« Reply #301 on: January 14, 2018, 02:54:48 pm »
Found this dead white tail deer in my driveway when I got home from work this morning. Something dragged it a few feet, but I could not see any obvious tracks. The wind blew a little last night and may have covered it. Will look for more sign when I wake up this afternoon
She seems to be in good condition after this cold winter. Possibly wolves, and a small chance it could be a cougar.

Not shot/wounded and died where you found her?
the air is cooler and more petroleum-distillate infused in a garage, this clarifies the mind and helps with the understanding of all things mechanical. In contrast, air in the house carries the latent bi-products of sanitation chemicals and room air fresheners. This, in turn, causes the testicles to retreat slightly, reducing mechanical aptitude by an order of magnitude. Then again, maybe it's just that the beer fridge is in the garage.

Hell no.

I like flesh, especially Venison backstraps.  The Filet Mignon of the deer.

If only it was that easy. One of the benefits, and in this case the downside, of living in a first world country is law enforcement. The law says if I want to take meat from that dead deer, I have to phone the ministry of environment, and they will send a conservation officer to come and inspect the carcass. Once he is satisfied that the animal was not shot with rifle or bow, he will issue me with a permit to be in possession of the meat. If it did have a gun shot wound it would mean it was poached (because hunting season is closed) and an investigation will follow. I will not get the meat in that case and it will be donated to the food bank. The "fish cops" as we call them, have a lot of resources to investigate crimes, like DNA  and ballistics labs etc. And the penalty for poaching is harsh. Big fines, confiscation of all firearms and license to posess firearms, lifetime hunting and fishing ban and jail.
When I woke up this afternoon the deer was gone. Tire tracks and boot tracks , but no deer  :imaposer:

Could you please stop showing how cold it is  :P :P I am trying to convince THROTTLE that a move to maple country isn't such a bad idea and snow pictures aren't exactly helping my case.  :patch: :lol8:

Na ek nou al die tyd spandeer het om die freads te lees moet ek nou ernstig begin werk anders moet ek ander werk loop soek. Thanks vir die info en die chat - verstaan nie alles van die huisbouery nie maar nogtans baie interresant.

Sterkte met julle planne daar en alle voorspoed en sukses aan die anderkant van die wÍreld. My skoonsuster - hulle woon in Vancouver.

Mr Zog - goed om te sien jy is besig om in te setlle met locals.  :laughing4: Terloops het my XR geruil vir n 990 Adventure... Yeehaaa!

Remember I said that if the vapour barrier between your drywall and insulation is not a 100% air tight you will get frost in your walls and attic? Well this is what it looks like



I screwed up with the exhaust vent for the hood above the stove. >:( >:(



When I installed it I did not have a drill bit to go right through the inner and outer wall, so I eyeballed it. Needless to say I was a few mm off centre and the ducting did not line up. But a boer maak n plan, and I used a few small pieces that I slid in to each other. So each section could bend a little till it all fit together



I was really impressed with myself that it worked. I was 11pm at night and I told myself I should come back tomorrow after work to seal it where the sections join each other otherwise the hot humid air will leak through the joins and cause frost in my wall. Well, I completely forgot.......and only remembered yesterday.
This is what it should have looked like



I will drag a shopvac in to the attic tomorrow and suck up all the frost before it melts and possibly cause water damage
