    To bad you didn't enjoy it more Mick. Looks like a fine machine. My bikes are away for the winter, but that means in my shop, where I walk past them daily and every time I feel the urge to throw a leg over.:whine:

    Anything goes for cows. :drink: A local ranch here uses tree trimming chips to form the base of their winter feedlot piles, then hog fuel and sawdust on top. That's where I used to dump all my chips.

    This quote is all I could find? Under B.C. law, raccoons are considered alien species or pests and residents are allowed to kill one humanely if it is damaging property.

    That's what he said? He is a trapper but works for a company that does pest removal. They work for the local big ranch a lot doing range patrol and driving off coyotes and stuff. Also anyone can hire them if they want to get rid of various pests. He did say he had taken a course on it and whatnot. Nice fella, he said he'd come and take any raccoons I caught for free until the end of March. Something to do with the cold making them worthwhile for the pelts or something and after that time they aren't worth anything so he'd have to charge if I wanted him to take one away?

    Well the coon went without a fuss. High powered pellet gun. The fellow said that coons aren't naturally in the forest here and that is why it's illegal to release them there or transport them. They are a introduced pest.

    I'm sure people make it work for them. If I have an area that's persistently muddy. I've always put gravel there and I have plenty of chips around yet have to buy gravel in by the expensive truckload. Just seems like if a spot is muddy. Dumping chips on the mud is short term gain for long term pain.

    Well I'm hoping I only have one more coon to trap. I've only seen two together. We are pretty isolated by fields. So it's not a real easy spot for critters like this to come and go from now that it's winter. So hopefully once I've got them caught we'll be free of them. It's still chilling in the trap. And by chilling I mean growling and hissing every time I go anywhere near it. I will admit when I hear that growl. I feel rage well up in me, a real shot of adrenaline, like it's go time. Must be a primal thing or something. I've felt the same thing with coyotes too. A strong natural dislike, no real reason for it. But it always happens. I'll be glad when they're gone.

    I don't feel good about killing it. But it's still going to get killed. If that makes any sense.

    I have composted a huge amount of wood chips on my place. Makes great soil over time. And I also compost my horse manure. My new raised beds I put in last year are lasagna layered with some of both. I'm just curious about people putting them in horse stalls. Wanting a bunch of wood chips dumped to compost is one thing. Wanting a bunch dumped so you can spread them around a paddock is another thing? I certainly don't add anything to my paddock areas that will compost down into mud. Quite the opposite I take everything that will compost out, as in pick all the shit up. When confined horses can work an area into a muddy mess, I just don't see how chips would help with that without eventually exasperating the problem by becoming mud themselves?

    15 years. That will go against the grain in North America where some people like to assume a wood burning appliance can last forever. Lol. The amount of 30-40 year old stoves I come across still in use is ridiculous. ......oh wait....I have one in my shop too.

    There are some cool woodburning tech in Europe that we never see over here due to codes and certifications. They may meet or exceed code or certification requirements but never bother getting tested due to the expense so never hit the North American market.

    Some animals are pests. Depends on the situation. I like/need barn cats in order to keep the mice, moles, and voles at bay. I have four of them. All neutered and spayed. Besides the raccoon eventually going to be killing one their shit is super unhealthy to have around. Can be very dangerous for humans I read. And the fact they are living under my chicken coop. I really can't believe there hasn't been a chicken slaughter yet.

    It's a nice feeling to be self-sufficient. No one thinks on it much it seems until the power goes out. I've got quite a bit to figure out still to be setup properly. Need a good generator.
