    Coyote hunter experts???

    Great Pyrenees are a force to be reckoned with! My sister has two of them and a pack of coyotes is no match for even ONE. Her big male will decimate a pack of yotes without working up a sweat... Their coat is so thick it's difficult for anything to penetrate it, which is a good defense...

    My state's official stance stance is that there are no cougars here. They admit that an occasional one will pass through as do black bears. 20 years ago, I had a cougar in my yard on 3 separate occasions, once chasing my dog right to me. I called DNR and asked if I could shoot it and they said...

    Again, this is NOT about buying things from overseas or any other country. I will agree that it's difficult to buy anything made in the U.S. these days....This IS about buying STOLEN designs such as cloned chainsaws, or any other stolen designs. There is a very real difference....

    Is the interest rate worth the credit history?

    When I got out of boot camp and went to my A school, I was shocked to see the main road leading to the Base's gates was ridden with predator car lots waiting to take advantage of all the 18 year old kids with a fat bank account and a steady paycheck.
