    Bark Biters On Ebay

    This member lives not to far from me in Michigan,,,,,he's selling them on other sites also. RSMITH & I produced the first ones from Ryan's design. Imitation is the best form of flattery I guess. Wish I would have had the $$$ to pursue the BarkBiter further,,,,,sorry Ryan.

    Want More Bark Biters!

    OK, I could use some input from you guys,,,, I did some checking around and have a couple of options,,,,, 1) I'm getting prices on aluminum & machining from another buddy of mine to make some more brackets . 2) He suggested I build a plastic injection mold to make them instead of machining or stamping them out. He assured me that he has plastic that would hold up as well as the aluminum. He made me an offer to let me build the mold myself at NO cost. He would supply all the material & machine time and I would do all of the machining and build the mold (Aprox. 40 -50 hrs) This would GREATLY reduce the cost of each bracket,,,compared to the first ones I made. If I decide to go ahead & accept his offer, I would apreciate any suggestions or changes you guys would like to see on the new version. I'm already thinking I'm going to make the strap slot narrower for strength. Thanks for any input. Mike

    Want More Bark Biters!

    AHHHHHHH the memories Ryan. Just reading these post & pictures bring back such fond memories of when we started this little project. I can't promise anything guys, But I'm layed off this week. It looks like it's about time I start checking into seeing if this project can be kept alive. So if anybody has a rich uncle who needs to dispose of some cash,,,,,let me know. Like I said,,,,,no promises I'll let you guys know how it looks.

    Want More Bark Biters!

    RSMITH & Myself were making the Bark Biter,,,,,, It was Ryans design & I was making them. I had a stamping die designed with the intention of building it to mass produce the bracket. Unfourtunantly, things have gone way south here in MI. and Iv'e been working several job's to keep things afloat. I don't have any more & the guy who was CNC machining them for me went out of business. If Ryan doesn't have a problem with someone else making them, I don't. I wish I had the time & energy to get back to making them, they really do work great. I'm really surprised & somewhat flatterd that people still want them. Best of Luck Guys BUG

    Ccw Questions/discussion

    I have an opportunity to take a CCW class. I've never really felt the need to have one before, but I work late some nights & the neighborhood isn't the best. How many members here have one????? Anybody wish they did or didn't have one???? This is something I'm thinking seriously about so any input would be apreciated. Thanks, BUG

    "the Kiss"

    Recently received this from Code 3 Collectibles web site,,,,, "THE KISS" She is pregnant; he had just saved her from a fire in her house, rescuing her by carrying her out of the house into her front yard while he continued to fight the fire. When he finally got done putting the fire out, he sat down to catch his breath & rest. A photographer from the Charlotte, North Carolina newspaper noticed her in the distance looking at the fireman. He saw her walking straight toward the fireman and wondered what she was going to do. As he raised his camera, she came up to the tired man who had saved her life and the lives of her babies and kissed him just as the photographer snapped this picture. I don't know if this is legitiment,,,,,but it is kinda cute.

    Long Range Moose Hunt

    "Nerves of steel",,,,,,,,I would of been "Bowels of mush" Crazy French Canadians
  13. My oldest Son & I went hunting on Sat. near Goodells, MI in the "thumb". It was my first season & his 2nd season. (he got a 11.5 inch beard Tom last year) We were in the woods by 5:00 AM & set up together behind an umbrella blind. To make a LONG story short,,,,,, he was able to call in 3 jakes to our hen decoys from about 250 yards away. I took the one on the right,,,,he took the one on the left,,,,the middle one had a lucky day. Both had 4" beards. We were on our way out of the woods by 9:00 AM. It's a day I'll remember for quite awhile,,,,,,even if we hadn't have been successful!!!

    Training Collars For Dogs

    I have used one on my Britts,,,,,,,it really gets their attention. Use the lowest setting. I almost "fried" my female Britt when she was young & head strong, and I was frustrated with her behaviour. This my sound cruel, but I strapped it to my forearm & gave myself a jolt to see what it felt like,,,,,,,I now use it sparsley Some people do over use them. once they learn what it feels like, it just takes a little ZAP to get them back in line.
