I don't know what Farmer's or Rancher's are like in Melvin's area, but "shooting a Cow" or otherwise stealing from a Farmer is apt to be very dangerous for the thief. A case in point: A few week's ago a Farmer noticed his irrigation equipment had been torn open and copper wire removed. He and a number of his fellow's formed a watch group and using cell phones and ATV's surrounded the thieves and held them at gunpoint for the county Sheriff's Department. In SHTF the trio probably would have been dead. Melvin, dope fantasies are still fantasies.
