  1. Past hour
  2. I've had the inReach mini for a couple of years and the larger one before that and it has been really solid. The Earthmate app pairs with the inReach via Bluetooth and texting is just like on your phone. The weakness of any of these type of beacons/GPS/SAT devices is having a clear view (connection) to the satellites. In the ADKs it can get pretty thick, but if I really want a message to get out I just step into a clearing to make sure it gets through. Our group hunts where there is no cell service and we all use our inReach to text back and forth.
  3. From the Crossbow Regulations ------- Crossbows may also be used to take deer or bear during limited portions of bowhunting seasons as follows, provided that the hunter possesses the muzzleloading privilege: During the last 14 days of the early bowhunting season in the Southern Zone; During the last 10 days of the early bowhunting season in the Northern Zone; this includes the 7-day early muzzleloader season in the Northern Zone; Only Bow/Muzz tags, DMPs or DMAPs may be use during these times.

  5. Has anyone tried Rich the Butcher in Mahopac? I've heard good things for years, but never tried him. I know @Chef is also curious
  6. I Definitely do. My Father instructed me well on all 8 Stations of the Skeet Field starting at Age 11. In addition to Shooting at least 2 Rounds of 25 Clay Pigeons on the Weekends starting at age 11,my 1st Job was as a " Puller". For some here who don't know-- the " Puller" is in Charge of the Cord + Control Buttons. 3 of them-- H= High House, L= Low House, + D= Doubles. You push the D Button and both the High House + the Low House have Clay Pigeons coming out at the same time. Some of the Very Best Skeet Shooters in New York State would often come to the Skeet Fields at the Monroe- Chester Sportsman's Club on the Weekends and, I got to Observe Closely the different Styles of these Great Skeet Shooters. And Tardy or early Pulling was Frowned upon by these Shooters. My Father told me early on-- Don't take any Crap from these Guys. Now everyone had their own " command" when it came for calling for the Puller to hit the Button. I heard everything- YIP, HOOO, HA, HEY, AHHH, PULL IT ,PULL, NOW, COUGHING,ETC,. That's Right - a number of guys would " Cough" when they were ready to shoot at one of the 8 Skeet Range Stations. So it took me 4 1/2 years to Finally shoot my 1st 25 Straight in Skeet at age 14 1/2. That was the year, I won my 1st Skeet Shooting Trophy in the Junior Division. Only 2 Kids competed and we both shot 48 out of 50 Clay Pigeons. I won the Shootoff. I WAS SO HAPPY THAT DAY! SO, I Pulled from age 11 to age 16. Both a Fun + a Rough Job as , I had to be there on the Weekends from 9am to 5pm. Very few Breaks during the Long Day as , I had to Load both the High + the Low House after every round. I actually had to Run to each House as a new group of 5 Skeet Shooters would be waiting on me at Station # 1. And the Dumbest thing, I saw over + over was grown men walking in front of the Low House Window looking for their Spent Shells from Station # 7. My Father made sure from the start that, I turned off both Skeet Machines and release that last Cocked Clay Pigeon before loading up the Chute with more Clay Pigeons. So I shot regularly from age 11 to age 36 or so. Along the way there have been many 25 Straights,a bunch of 50 Straights, some 75 Straights, and 4 or 5 100 Straights in Skeet Shooting. I won just 1 Registered Skeet Shoot-- 12 Gauge Doubles on a Light rainy + Windy day. I was 34 then. I can tell you as a Puller of 6 Years, I have seen Guys " Choke up" mostly at Station 1 - High House-- Station 2-High House-- Station 6- Low House-- Station 7 -Low House-- Station 8 - Low House. That's right-- Station 7- Low House! The easiest Bird to hit. I have seen many Straights Blown right there. Of course Station 8 - Low House had plenty of guys shaking some. And if you are going Straight- you will have to shoot Twice at that Station. I had to be right on that button if a Man was going Straight. No error would be tolerated and, I made few of those. I remember a good friend of my Father's who tried for years to go Straight 25 in Skeet. He was on his 2nd Shot at Station # 8 and a Man prematurely started to enter the Skeet Field to talk to my Father who was behind me and also shooting that Round. I saw the Shooter cast a nervous Glance at this Guy walking on the Skeet Field. He Missed his last Target. Both my Father + the Shooter were Totally Pissed. And this Guy knew better too as he was a Very good shot and competed in Registered Skeet. Today, I shoot pick up Skeet with a few friends and, I have posted Threads + pics of that. My Reflexes at 61 are still Sharp. I think that is due in part to the years of Pulling Skeet. So who here owes their Wingshooting Ability to regular Skeet Shooting?
  7. Got an extra day off tomorrow. Looks like rain is going to hold off until 1. It's the start of my dark to 2pm sits. Checked trail came dates and looks like most the bucks are on the little piece of private I hunt tuesday-thursday.
  8. Sometimes messages take an hour, sometimes they take a day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Didn't Hillary say something like that back in '16?
  10. I think you're confusing some of us and maybe even yourself, and the concern we have is that you may be already hunting and not aware of the regs, which is not popular around here. All that aside and at the end of the day, I'd encourage you to visit the DEC website as they have pretty good info and answers to just about any question and THEY are the official source, not us jamokes.
  11. What kinda problems? I’ve had mine for a year now and use if in the spring and fall with no issues. I’m used to the texting platform they use so it’s not an issue for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. and Biz Piss. I once peed in a scrape in May and 2 days later a big buck showed up with a swollen neck rutting.
  13. I don't think cell cams would be a good look for me. Hell I see a buck tending a doe at the gun range during lunch, and I immediately call my boss and tell him I'm headed to the woods.
  14. Man it feels deery this morn. The only thing that agrees so far is a spike who came through at 8:30. Gotta pull out for work soon. Working for a living really screws up my plans lol. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  16. I have a 2007 Tahoe with 257,000 miles on it. I cant tell you how many sensors I have changed. Hope it's minor. Buddy just has his tranny rebuilt it cost 2k.
  17. @Grampy was telling me he likes the ones he shoots from his CO 370, I'd be interested to hear this as well, I'd like to get some lighted nocks for my bolts too.
  18. I love them. I get excited every morning to see whats out there. Hopefully more day time pics will be coming soon.
  19. Today
  20. That's a classic case of out of the frying pan and into the fire. You would think with the expense and upheaval of moving a manufacturing facility, they'd at least move to a gun friendly state.
  21. Theres a good possibility it will only take a day or two... The dealer will just replace it, not rebuild it. Regardless, I wish you the best outcome and good luck this season!

  23. 58k, should still be under warranty. I should be prepared to get a real pinch in the bee-hind from driving a rental for a couple weeks though. We'll find out in a few minutes when I get a hold of the dealer!
