Quick catch up. I found and processed some Persimmons, Fire Thorn, and Pecans. The Persimmons were a surprise as I have never seen one before and wasn’t looking for them. Need to head back and gather more.
Done some work on my Mosin-Nagant. I installed an aftermarket trigger return spring and am trying to replace the extractor. At first, thought it was just seized in to place, then suspected it was soldered in place. But none of the tricks for dealing with those issues worked. Finally had to concede defeat and try and grind the remainder of the old extractor out. The rifle seems to function better with the new extractor installed.
Tried catching a skunk that lives under the house, but caught a cat instead. I haven’t had a chance to try again.
