    Does Predator Reduction Have an Impact on Moose Harvest?

    That's a suburban coyote attacking a kid. Not good, but not sure what that has to do with killing wolfs in remote Alaska to boost moose populations.

    Full 22/23 closure for king and snow crab

    But global conspiracy is way more fun than plowing through data and reports.

    Condolences to Brian M...

    Extremely sad and shocking news.

    Room addition pilings question?

    Are you sure? From an EPA website: Effective December 31, 2003, chromated arsenical manufacturers voluntarily canceled virtually all residential uses of CCA, and wood products treated with CCA are no longer used in most residential settings, including decks and children’s playsets. EPA has...

    Room addition pilings question?

    "Foundation Grade" is what I've heard the stuff called that can be buried and not rot for a long, long time. From my understanding, it is most often treated with CCA (the "good old" stuff that is now banned for most uses) to 0.6 lbs per cubic foot of wood to be called foundation grade. That's...

    Are Sea Lions Dangerous to Be Around?

    I think Russia has that covered.

    Seafoam?

    Living life the right way? I don't use seafoam regularly, but I will use it with an engine that isn't running smoothly. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. To me it's worth the 8 or 9 bucks find out.

    Barry Arm

    "If that slides, most of it will end up on the glacier/land. Just eyeballing it this summer, I don't see the amount that would land in the water generating a wave big enough to severely impact Whittier. If you are anchored or camped on the shore near there, then that's another story."...

    Barry Arm

    Glad I could help relieve your anxiety. First, your oval needs to move a good bit to the right. At least half of what is sliding is over the glacier not water. Second, I never said Barry arm or even Harriman Fjord wouldn't have significant impacts from a slide. I said Whittier isn't going to...

    Room addition pilings question?

    The other thing to note, if you are going to go with wood post into the ground, you want to get wood that has been treated to foundation grade specs. This stuff has a lot more of chemicals that resist rotting than the pressure treated wood you'll pull off the rack at home depot. SBS may have...

    Best satellite cell plan?

    I don't know what you built but put me in the I'll believe when I see it group. Not sure how it is a tin foil hat conspiracy to know that Musk over promises and under delivers (how's that Twitter take over going?). Anyway, for over a year now, I go on Starlink's website to see if I can get...

    Room addition pilings question?

    Need a bit more information. How high off the ground is the new addition going to be? One story or two? What type of soil? In general, encasing a wood post in concrete isn't the best. Wood swells with moisture and contracts when it dries out. Concrete, not so much. Those differences can...

    I found a surprise under the tree

    I had a gun like that but with an 18" barrel. That style pistol grip is pretty hard to hold onto if you are shooting a 3" shell with big slug in it. I eventually replaced it with a Mossberg 500 with a more pistol grip shaped pistol grip (18.5" barrel). Easier to shoot. However, I shoot it from...

    2 Mile shoot

    I know this is an Alaska shooting forum but this is impressive: https://www.adn.com/nation-world/2017/06/22/canadian-special-operations-sniper-hit-target-from-more-than-2-miles-away-military-says/ They were Canadians, so sort of Alaskans?
