I get some good buildups gapping on my feet and hands I just scrape them off with a knife after a good soak.

Yes Mike I just use my hands and strength no special method to skin just the usual way with a knife. I tend to save the hide so I keep it in one piece and try not to nick it up. Cant take much more than 20 or 30 min to do.

I hang mine with the hide on to protect it from drying out and getting dirty as I hang it in my shop. After doing it that way I haven't seen a benefit of skinning first. (Its not that much harder to skin after aging)

Yes dont pass on the road kill. In my province I can only shoot one deer a year. Last year I put a total of 4 in the freezer with only one shot! ( ;

How do you find keeping geese? Would love some more info. How much room do they need, what do you feed them, do you grow your feed or purchase...


The geese pretty well take care of them selves I don't feed them or care for them during the growing months. I have to take a little care that the don't get into the neighboring fields. They range around the yard spending time in the pond and the front yard keeping the grass short. They roam the orchard eating grass and all fallen or low hanging fruit. In the winter months I pen them up and feed them whole grains.

I am also in 2b growing vegetables in winter is very hard and energy intensive. The light we get here is a low quality in winter and closer to 8hrs per day. The lack of light is not the issue it's the fact that its -20 for months with periods of -40 in there, it is just hard to keep a growing area heated unless it's in your living area. Natives traditionally ate dried berries and roots all winter and the old timers lived on meat and potatoes.
I've found growing feed for ducks and chickens a challenge and still working on it though I've settled on keeping geese.

You can totally spread pig manure straight into your garden, there are many people including myself who let the pigs into the garden to root around. So what is the difference one way is naturally spread and the other way requires human labour.
Raw manure should not be spread or touch vegetables within 60 days of the harvest according to the guberment.
Fall is the best time of year to spread any kind of manure on the garden as over winter it gives the nitrogen time to soak in and then is not harsh on the plants come spring.

My advise for upping your 'game' is just go for it. Don't be a wimp or shy and not say or do anything because your nervous.

I'm an extremely shy person until I get to know someone and the way I started with my wife is quite a story. So I was at a girls house that I wanted to date but was previously shut down and basically friend zoned while she could mess with my head. She had a family friend over who I said like 2 words to well later that night the 12 year old brother dared me to kiss Crystal. I distinctly remember thinking that the worse case scenario is I get slapped so what the heck go for it. I rushed in and pecked her on the cheek... her response was that's not a kiss and proceeded to plant a good one on my lips. That was some 12 years ago and we are still happily married and how we started dating without knowing or talking to each other first.

Moral of the story if the worst outcome of your action is a rejection or a slap life goes on so JUST DO IT. Rejection has the same outcome as not starting anything in the first place.

I never really used pickup lines per say but I use every opportunity to say something cheesy anything to make the girl smile or laugh

Buffalo berries are awesome the bushes are nitrogen fixes but super spiky though. I'm harvesting some this week actually both for the berries and seed for myself, I'm in Saskatchewan Canada while it is legal to send seeds shipping might be expensive. I have no idea if there are improved varieties or not (doubt it).

They also have series of shows depicting life of farmers during different time periods. I have enjoyed watching them and encourage others to watch them aswell.
