MB-

Nope. Cable seems to have stretched, though I adjusted the blamed thing. I think with a bit more adjustment the clutch will engage with the lever about 1 inch off the handlebars and still not risk it slipping. Tempermental bugger.... smile

Thanks. carl

How the hell is everyone ...well, those few of us still here?

Cletus- any blades coming our way that will be announced here? Not asking for anything top secret, but I don't (won't) go to blade and all I ask is that those loyal to the swamp get consideration for that loyalty (just announce here first).

Thanks, carl

A very fine day to you all. smile

Found an old clip on pig hunting, back when we were able to sell them through the livestock auction sales. Before the swine fever scare.

A mate and myself used to go out west regularly catching pigs for the sale yards and truck them back to Maitland just north of here on sale day.
Then a swine fever scare put a stop to all of it, in the early sixties.

I guess swine fever has spread to human population in major cities...

I don't think it was really an issue, more of an precautionary measure here.

It was a way for bush dwellers to pick up easy money doing what they loved doing, pig catching. grin

I think there ought to be a Deer fever- I got all the pigs I can handle and shooting or sticking them is getting boring... smile

Catching pigs here has been back on for years now.
These days they need to be gutted and sold to a freezer van, there are one in most bush towns.

I believe most is exported to the continent where wild pig is a delicasy, particularly the big boars.

Yes, back when the shop I ran had a pig chiller out back all of the hogs that came in were exported to Germany for the small goods market.

We don't have many problems with wild pigs around here, but last Wednesday's paper had a picture of a black bear strolling along one of the roads by the lake about 16 miles from us.
