  1. Today
  2. This is an orchestrated plan by leftists. The amount of people coming all at once was planned. They are not carrying food and water and are not going without baths. Somebody is putting them up at night. I see no backpacks or duffel bags full of clothes either. The number of days it would take for them to reach the US border, traveling 25 miles a day, would not allow them to make the progress they are making every day. This is an attack planned and supported by leftists with a desire to exploit the guilt feelings of Americans who feel bad for these invaders. It's purely political, and it's deceptive. It's also par for the course. While we may laugh in disgust at the dishonesty of politics, heed a serious warning. The type of behavior exhibited by Democrats in power — weaponizing agencies of government like the IRS, DOJ, EPA, etc. to control and punish political foes; using slander at every turn alleging sexism, racism, and all other -isms to marginalize; agitating the offended to the point of riot and violence; importing foreign individuals as part of a ploy to disrupt our government under the guise of asylum and safety; and employing a two-tiered system of justice to exempt criminal acts of the elite but not the average — is not just despicable, it's dangerous. In decades past, these acts would be accurately defined and viewed as totalitarianism.

    6.8spc

    I’m interested in the 6.8 as well. I’m just not sure it offers much more than what a 5.56 can do, given the type of bullet used and the type of game pursued. I’m moving to copper and I’m just not sure I see a benefit to going 6.8. For example, 85gr all copper projectiles out of my 20in .243 average around 2800fps. I could probably push that closer to 3000 with some handloads. 55-62gr bullets from my 5.56 average around 3000fps from my 18in. Tables and charts aside, what is the real world difference in terminal performance between a 62-70gr projectile moving at roughly the same speed as an 85gr projectile that is .5mm larger in diameter? All copper bullets have really rewritten terminal performance understanding in many ways. Old cup and core lead jacket projectiles that shed 60% or so of their weight are a thing of the past. Even bonded core lead jacketed ammunition is changing our understanding of terminal performance. Foot pounds of kinetic energy are sales and marketing pitches. The real question is will this projectile adequately penetrate to destroy vital structures. Bonded and all copper projectiles have shown us that smaller/lighter bullets of though construction are capable of accomplishing those tasks in medium sized game. Sure, a 6.8 firing a 110gr bullet at 2600fps will have more freight behind it than a 62gr bullet at 2800fps, but what is the real world terminal performance difference? Is it that great of a difference to warrant the added cost of shooting 6.8 over 5.56? I’m not sure. I think inside 300yds it’s mostly a wash between 5.56, 6.5, and 6.8 when bullets of the same type of construction are used. In my opinion, past 250-300yds is when the separation begins, which then begs the question of will you actually ever shoot at game that far away? Maybe you hunt in those kinds of areas. If you do, and you want a semi-auto, why not just use an AR-10 based rifle and actually see some performance increase at those extended ranges? I don’t doubt the 6.8 is more powerful than 5.56. It definitely is. However, with all things being equal, when hunting whitetail deer, maybe even black bear, is it that much “better” when a good shot is made? I’m not sure. I think going down that road is filled more with opinion, emotion and anecdotal evidence than facts.

    I love how the pups NEVER look at the camera. The hero shot is clearly their least fav part. They always look like they are already looking for he next dead deer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Ok...let’s all slow down...while I too hope for nothing but tonight’s lottery tix and Bio being swept away by a company who can place him in a tree over sweet creatures and experiences, can we please remember that his shot of becoming some Russian/ Chinese hackers one arm love slave is a greater possibility?? Be careful...send pics....of the food not the Russ/Chinese hackers! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  8. My phone is always in my pocket while I'm actually hunting. But it doesn't come out much. Wife insisted on it, after I took a spill a couple years ago. From the time I was a young kid, the woods have been my escape. I never tire of watching stuff out there. Even when the deer are not moving, something else is. But it is nice to be able to tell a hunting partner, I'm moving or coming out. Or check the weather radar!

    Is technology helping or hurting the hunt.

    Several tight lipped local bowhunters (including a official scorer) knew of the deer's existence prior to it's being taken. Definitely not a farm raised deer. Several sanctuaries including a state park are close to where it was taken on private land.

    Shot placement of bear.

    Middle of the middle is what I've always heard. Bear hunting magazine is a great resource. They just started a podcast too.

    That buck could be confused with a high fence deer. Not saying that it is but all those rounded points are something that show up on bigger bucks that feed head down in feeders. Neat buck either way.

    I use my phone to post here a couple times on each sit . Other then that, never owned a range finder in 30 years of bow hunting , no cameras up this year, don’t FB , I washed my hunting clothes before the season and May again in a week or two, and gasp ! I just toss Em in the washer and drier half the time with normal clothes and soap ! Dont know about today but it used to be illegal to use radios and such to aid in talking of deer . With cell phones being common place that may have gone to the wayside .
  18. Live from Amtrak- heading to meet MrsCrappy who has been there since Saturday. Her aunt/Godmother passed on Friday...my mother has been great help but my hunting has been a bit crimped....living through y’all! Nice kills lately. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I'm just not diggin the stencils. As long as you know it's an Elite that's cool. Deer don't really care what name is on the bow that shoots at em.

    I hunt with the same technology (even the same gun) that I had in 1968. Only thing that is different for me is that the treestands are light years ahead of what we had back in the day. No cell phone service where I live, but I wouldn't own one if I did. This buck was taken a few miles from where I live a couple of years ago. I didn't know he existed until he showed up on FB.
  23. I know 4 that are like him us kids learned a lot from him . Lost him to soon in life but learnt a lot while he was here

    Well we will never keep the Non-Hunters happy per say and they are the ones that will run with the fair chase card. I think the new gadgets and rifles that shoot a mile may one day push some buttons but the South is happy with running dogs and the North with deer drives so i am not sure it will ever be put in one pot and described fair or not.
