BTW, if you want to ATTRACT deer, plant black eyed peas (cowpeas) Deer will stand on your CHEST to eat blackeyed peas!
I'm not a cheerleader, so it wasn't Trip.

See? Told y'all (and the cops) that it wasn't me. Besides, I wouldn't leave Cinder passed out around y'all. Jeez, the goat's not even safe, why would I think my girlfriend would be?

Here's a random question, has anyone done a study on how economic downturns & recessions impact participation in hunting and fishing activities?

I have been told that during and shortly after the great depression, the deer were almost hunted out in many places.

The deer were almost hunted out during the depression, because people were starving. If something like the great depression happened today, you'd likely see a lot of cattle start disappearing along with a drop in the deer population. Wild hogs would also be hunted a LOT, but I doubt even another great depression could wipe them out. They reproduce too quickly.

Alright, don't wunna start a thread for a single question. So here it is.....

I was told not to put a crimp when reloading brass cases, and I haven't been doing that. But after firing one or two rounds out of my rifle the bullets seem to loosen and change the overall length so they don't chamber at all. So now to the actual question.......would it hurt anything if I put just enough crimp to hold the bullets?

Who told you not to? A taper crimp should be fine.

Only two people so far, just figured they knew what they where talking about since they've been reloading a good while longer then I have. But I think I'll try giving them a slight crimp next time.

I'm no professional reloader by any means but I'm sure a slight crimp is better than bullet setback and over pressurization.

That how I'm looking at it, but just figured I would ask around a little more to see if I was missing something here.
