My wife and I were recently looking at old pictures from a house that we used to own many years ago. It brought back an incident that happened one Saturday morning. We lived in a small house that was, for the most part, in need of updating. It had a single stall attached garage with a door that really didn’t reach the ground. Anyway, we had a great set of neighbors. The guy loved to coon hunt so he kept a couple of dogs in kennels behind his house. The dogs were fine and really good neighbors. Anyway, he fed the dogs in the kennels so there was always food outside. One morning I was going to start the bandsaw in the garage to work on a project. When I fired up the saw, it started just out fine but all of a sudden it immediately stopped. When I looked around the saw, there was a set of whiskers and nose sticking out the area where you little blade guard is. It turned out to be rat. I took the cover off the saw and there in the base of the saw was the stash of dog food. We had a great laugh over that and my wife suggested that since I had luck with the saw that I move the bandsaw to the tree stand for the next deer hunt. Hey, it is probably quieter than hunting with the chain saw!

Wow! I hope the cleanup wasn’t too messy.

Just curious… Would a Grizzly band saw be the right tool for hunting grizzly bears?
