Thanks Dave

The warm welcome I have received is very much appreciated. As regards BP shooting, I am rethinking my range box actually turning it into a range bag. That project is in it's infancy.

Hawg...

Indeed, I am working on it now.

I am working up a digging bucket as is found on a backhoe.

That unit will use mostly 1320 pound actuators instead of the 330 pound units for the loader bucket.

I am deciding upon the geometry for it now. Close to buying the actuators and metal.

The property has several hog wallers in which the soil is disturbed and soft. This is the soil I will use to build up the berm. There is water on the property but only when it rains pretty hard. I think if I dig down I will strike more permanent water. I am not looking to dig a swimming pool, just want to provide a refuge for other wildlife than just wild boars.

I wish I was younger. Stamina is beginning to decline.

Good to read your handles again. Tnx for the kind words.

Still have two of the trapdoor carbines.

Good to be back with your guys.
