Looking for deer

Kubota went hunting deer yesterday.  He took a shot so we did our best to find the animal.  There was NO evidence that he connected with it but we still spent a couple of man-hours looking.

One place where magazines do a disservice to people learning to track is that they overstate the amount of "sign" you are looking for.  The photo shown above is just the tiniest dab of mud on the barb of a top strand of wire.  I suspect that the barb combed it off the rear hoof of a deer that was jumping the fence.

Sometimes you find a lot of hair.  Sometimes you find just the tiniest few strands.  This is somewhere in the middle.

Mr Pepper's firing pin is in
The pin holding the washer that retains the spring was centered before being handed off to Mr Pepper.  

The dishwasher stopped working

I picked up a used dishwasher from Craigslist.  The previous owner claimed they replaced their appliances with stainless steel.  I have my doubts.  The "normal" cycle does not shut off.  We will try the other cycles and see if any of them finish.  Our back-up plan is to run the dishwasher for an hour and then hit cancel and drain.

Administrative notice
Posting will be touch-and-go until Friday.  I have a job in Grand Rapids that runs from 8-till-6 and there is about an hour-and-a-half of road time on each end of the day.
