  1. Past hour
  2. The explains why you should be at least a little skeptical about man made climate change.
  3. I once perched in the tops of trees with a chainsaw tied to me for a living. For money. I was always tethered to the tree. Always. I never saw any reason to mess with that just because I was hunting rather than taking down a tree. As comfortable as I was climbing trees on a daily basis, I never forgot exactly where I was and the hazards of not being aware at all times.
  4. Dude! You forgot "The Macho Man". I still watch WWE. Don't care much for too many of the new crop, but the women's division sure makes it worth watching. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk

    Last week, my take on scampi. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  8. I did the rope and 2×4 for a few years. Got the idea from a book about bow hunting I borrowed from the library. Hug the tree on the way up. Still had my ( at that time safety belt ) attached. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  9. Beer

    Sigh... Oktoberfest are out already, The Genny guy said blame Sam Adams , they started releasing theirs early, then everyone else followed suit .
  10. Thinking about a .35 Whelen

    Tough to beat a medium to heavy weight bullet from a medium bore ( .33 TO ,38) caliber rifle, when shooting at the south end of a rapidly departing northbound deer, or elk for that matter...Elmer Keith knew that from his experience hunting elk in black timber..
  11. Today
  12. Ya i used tree steps made out of a pieces of 2x4 with a hole,drilled through and closeline to tie them to the tree . Hauled a 30 pound stand up by a chain , and tied a rope around my waist . Sold my climber and all but one LW hang on, all ladders now and big ones, building my second shooting shack soon too ! I Always wear a harness , and always used a life line, tied off on the ground ,slide Prusik up as I go . I also don’t believe there were only 12 falls last year , I always know of a couple around me each year , and anyone who,works in an ER can tell you each hospital gets a few each year .

    Thank you. I have been trying new things to change up the day to day meals. One night last week I sauteed some shrimp in garlic and EVO, made fettuccine, and used garlic parm wing sauce to make a variation of shrimp scampi. It was awesome. Not sure if I have a pic, will have to check my phone. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  14. When I started bowhunting, most guys who hunted from trees found a limb that they could stand on..Then came hang on stands, most of which were homemade...One of those gave out on me and I DAMN near suffered a gravity attack, but was lucky.. Over the course of quite a few years, most of my friends suffered at least ONE gravity attack, although none of them were injured seriously...SEVERAL OF THEM WERE very LUCKY.. I quit using hang ons and climbers quite a few years back.. I now only hunt out of ladder stands with safety lines, or, more often, out of an enclosed tower blind with a stairway and handrail...

    I also cooked up a pork tenderloin tonight, but your stuffed loin looks way better!
  17. A stay bullet can get you on the ground more than in a tree.
  18. I must admit I’ve only been using a harness for about 5 or 6 years now. I know very stupid of me not to and I guess I’m lucky also, but now I’m always wearing one. And I am just as mobile with my sticks and hang on as the guy who hunts on the ground. After doing it so many times it’s a breeze
  19. I've tree surfed many times, always used my safety belt or harness. Fear of heights keeps me on the ground these days. Bonus to hunting from the ground, if I drop something there's no metal clanking noise and I can just lean forward and pick it up. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  20. Yes they were all found personally by me in and around the Southern Tier. My collection has grown since that photo, but since moving to Ontario County I haven't been able to find any. I do know of a few village sites along the west side of Seneca. Sent from my LGMP260 using Tapatalk
  21. Thinking about a .35 Whelen

    You’re absolutely correct, does a 35whelen kill a deer any deader than an 06 probably not any deader than an 06 does a 270 or 308 does a 7mm-08. But if that was the justification for any new gun purchase we would probably all still be using 30-30’s. A 35whelen has an advantage of being able to do more with a heavier bullet than on 06, I justify the 35whelen because it penetrates better and with still hunting and tracking I don’t ever get to shoot at broadside deer. With a 35whelen I know no matter if the buck is facing me or away from me that if I do my part the bullet will make it to the vital and come out the other side giving me two holes. I killed a lot of deer with an 06 and I will say I recovered more bullets from the 06’ than I have the Whelen. That is in no way scientific or even quantifiable but having shot about 10 deer with the Whelen I have not yet been disappointed with the results it I was never disappointed with an 06 or any other rifle cartridge that I’ve killed deer with other than 223 and 243. Does that make it worth having the added expense if you don’t reload maybe not? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Another stuffed pork tenderloin, spinach - fresh garlic - and provolone this time. Spheghetti squash for a side. Sent from my SM-S327VL using Tapatalk
  23. The mistake that Bill made of course is that modern 'liberals', are in fact Marxists who erroneously appropriated the 'liberal' moniker in the 1930s.

  25. Hey Predate... Are your artifacts NY origin or elsewhere? One of the areas (west shore Seneca Lake) is known to produce arrowheads, etc. every now and then, but I haven't been lucky enough yet....keep hoping!
  26. I stay on the ground.....We have 2 stands that are only 10 feet high,,,Maybe I can use one but I never feel at ease..
