    You can find them that size in a bed down here in about 3 weeks if you do not keep up on spraying.

    I've seen those before. They're the ones that swish a mouthful of sedgehammer around and spit it back in your face followed by an "evil" laugh.

    I saw some that size last friday...it actually was so big it look like ornamental grass...its also very common to see it that size near the river where we ride our quads.

    Get rid of that Z-spray and Lesco spreader--you need the proper equipment--a chainsaw by Stihl, for instance.
