Rock and Mineral Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

    • Man I am sorry about your dog. They are harder to loose than people. 
    • You identify scat from the contents of the turd. Not really from the shape. Without knowing what is in the turd you are just guessing. If guessing is good enough then groovy. Otherwise you need to break it apart and at least determine if the animal was omnivorous. That is basic scatology 101. Identifying scat is just like identifying a rock. It is fairly easy to determine what it is if you know what it is made of.  The turd could be any small carnivore or omnivore. Without an attempt to identify it properly any guess is as good as the next.  Yes, it looks like bobcat poop. It also looks like skunk poop. Ringtail poop. Dog poop. Cat poop. Raccoon poop. Coyote poop... You determine what left the poop by analyzing the contents. The only difference between turds is what the animal ate and was able to digest.
    • Sorry for your lost of Sundance, my condolences. 
    • The homeowner just got back to me. She wrote "Looked up Bobcat scat...believe that is what it is."
