  1. They can't be relocated legally (without jumping through some hoops) since they are a rabies vector species. Best thing to do is catch them in a live trap and then euthanize them. Marshmallows are a great bait for trash pandas.
  2. They snip the vas deferens the testicles stay intact so it should have no effect on hormone production. It will not change antler characteristics.
  3. NJ looked into switching the license from calendar year to fiscal year about 7-8 years ago. They couldn't figure out a way to transition without loosing money so they tabled the idea. They evaluated having a pro rated license valid Jan 1 through june 30, then an annual from July 1-June 30 the next year and decided not enough hunters would buy that short term license, so they looked at increasing fees for a one time license that ran jan 1 though the following june 30th and they couldn't agree on an amount they could charge that would work out by providing the funding yet not decreasing license sales. They figured people would just skip that year and wait for a normal priced license the next year.
  4. They had a game dinner last month down in cape may, they were supposed to propose a charter for a NJ chapter at their annual rendezvous out west last week. I do not know if there was enough interest to actually start a chapter. Haven't heard anything but there was approx 40 people who registered online for the game dinner.
  5. Yeah, I was trying to figure it out. Got 20 email last night from aspira connect. I looked up aspira connect and it is a software company geared toward outdoors. The email coming from db-Dev I would guess that is database Dept of environmental protection. Not sure if the database was hacked or if this is some sort of legit hosting company that just launched their confirmation software. Either way it was messed up to see all those emails.
  6. I got an email with a link to that as well.
  7. install an ad blocker....problem solved. All I see for ads is an amazon box in the side bar.
  8. All concentrated permethrin has emulsifiers in it which allows it to be carried by water into fabrics. The water evaporates and the permethrin actually bonds to the fabric which is why it has a residual effect for several weeks. It doesn't work well on solid surfaces but on fabric it works very good. There are different emulsifiers in some of the concentrates. I have used both the petroleum based and water based over the years and have seen positive results with both, but I prefer the 36.8% sfr with petroleum based emulsifiers.
  9. Actually it would be 1oz of 10% permethrin and 19 oz of water to get the same 0.5% concentration as sawyers

  11. To get them white first you need to make sure it is degreased. I used to just use dawn dish soap in the last stages of cleaning the skull but noticed after a year or two you would still see a slight discoloration from the oils/grease that was deep into the bone finally working its way out. Now I wipe the skull down with acetone a couple times then clean up with dawn. I've been told camp fuel also does a good job of pulling grease out of skulls but haven't tried it myself. The last step is using Volume 40 peroxide cream ( a hair salon product used to bleach hair). I wipe on some cream let it sit for a day or 2 them wipe the residue off and its done. Regular liquid peroxide is only like 2 or 3% hydrogen peroxide and the rest water, the salon products are 30 or 40% and come as a cream which is much easier to keep on the skull. If you use the 30 or 40% peroxide make sure you wrap the antlers first so you don't accidentally bleach antlers. I use latex gloves and wipe the peroxide on with my fingers. SO I make sure the antlers are covered with plastic wrap and masking tape so if I touch them somewhere I don't get discoloration.
