  3. The movies are full of blunders, I see them all the time but most go over people's heads. I watched the old Fenimore Cooper "Deerslayer" movie the other day, most of the story takes place here in NY and surrounding states. The opening scene has the Deerslayer walking up to a nice big racked buck he just shot, a real trophy Mule Deer not from around these parts. LOL Al

  4. I got out for a couple hours this afternoon at a dairy. Birds were hungry. Killed 38 pigeons and 12 crows over a feed bunker. Solo shoot. If my nephew was with me it would have been awesome. We killed about 300 pigeons and 100 crows this winter. We weren’t able to get out too much. Im hoping our sumner pigeon shoots over decoys is better than last year. Last year the wheat was not in the good shooting areas so we did not do well at all. No big 200 plus bird mornings.

  5. The issue of illegal invaders of our border and the burgeoning results on our safety and economy are just one aspect of the treason being committed by this administration since its inception. There has to be more to the current downward slide of our position in the world than just coincidence. Biden or whoever is pulling his strings keep edging us closer to world war. His financial and policy gifts to Iran are now undoing everything that Trump had in place to keep Iran under control with no ability to financially get into the adventures that they are now involved with. Biden financed their war on Israel and on us right from the beginning with the billions given to Iran. He also destroyed Trump initiated policies to keep Iran in an impoverished condition where waging and financing wars was virtually impossible. Budget cuts on the military have now left us in a condition of shortages. The destruction of our fuel industry is crippling our economy along with the foolish mad expenditures of their so-called green energy policies. The Democrats are doing everything they can to bankrupt this nation and its citizenry. His wholesale voter bribery with free this and free that is running amok in our economy. The absolute acts of irresponsibility regarding the trashing of our legal system has us in fear of using the subways and even the streets. Come-on, all these things and more are not simply coincidental. It has to be an orchestrated plan of chaos, being perpetrated by some external force and influence (Think China). I think the crooked shenanigans that the entire Biden family have been implicated in, kind of makes one wonder where his allegiances really are. I know that we always hesitate to use the word treason when talking about the highest office in our country, but at some point, you have to say, "If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck, it probably is actually a duck.

  6. Im currently debating a Libbie dude on the NJ forum who (Surprise!) has a dreadful case of TDS and believes the #1 issue this country faces is income inequality !! Doesnt matter WHEN ,WHERE OR WHAT time frame were talking about, some of these Lefties are SO classically trained and ideologically entrenched that the Chinese Army could be in the midst of launching an invasion-through our open souhtern border, nonetheless- and , literally, at their front door and they would say that, anyway!! unbelieveable

  7. Kinda Long ... Sorry ( from Fox News ) Here are 11 now familiar steps to civilizational destruction: 1. Wipe out a 2,000-mile border. Allow 10 million foreign nationals to enter unlawfully. Have no audit of any; nullify all federal immigration laws. Let in toxic drugs that kill 100,000 Americans a year. Give free support to those millions who broke the law. Smear any objectors as racists and xenophobes. 2. Run up $35 trillion in national debt. Keep adding $1 trillion to it each 100 days. Defame anyone wishing to cut wild spending as cruel and inhumane. 3. Appease or subsidize enemies like Iran and China. Demonize allies like Israel. Allow terrorists to attack Americans without adequate response. See Islam as either similar or superior to Christianity. Make amends to leftist governments for supposedly past toxic American international behavior. Follow the lead of international agencies like the U.N., ICC and WHO to atone for past American neocolonial and imperialist behavior. Recede to second-tier international status, befitting American decline. 4. In a multiracial democracy, redefine identity only as one’s tribal affiliation. Ensure each identity group rivals the other for victimhood and the state spoils it confers. Reboot all political issues by race and sex oppressors and oppressed. Destroy all meritocratic standards of admission, retention, promotion and commendation. 5. Recalibrate violent crime as understandable, cry-of-the-heart expressions of social justice. Ensure no bail and same-day release for arrested, repeat violent felons. Empathize with the violent killer and rapist; ignore their victims, especially if they are slain police officers. 6. Emasculate the military by using non-meritocratic standards of race, gender, and sexual orientation to determine promotion and commendation. Deliberately impugn as racists and insurrectionists the largest demographic in the military who in recent wars died at twice their numbers in the population — so that they leave or never join the military. Encourage retired high officers to slander their commander-in-chief. Cut the defense budget. Stop producing sufficient weapons, but leave billions of dollars’ worth of arms to terrorists. 7. Reinvent the justice system to indict, bankrupt, convict, jail and eliminate political opponents. Use ballot removal, impeachment, civil suits, and state and federal indictments rather than elections to defeat an opponent. Mob the homes of non-compliant Supreme Court justices, and attack them personally by name. 8. Encourage the fusion of the bureaucratic state with the electronic media to form a powerful force for political audit, surveillance, censorship and coercion. Marry the FBI to Silicon Valley and hire its contractors to warp the news and hound supposed enemies of the people. 9. Make war on affordable gasoline and natural gas. Substitute inefficient, unreliable and expensive wind and solar power, even as energy prices nearly bankrupt the middle class. 10. Marry late, but preferably not at all. Consider males toxic, especially boys. Have no children, or as few as possible. Otherwise, assure children they are entitled, and must be sheltered. Raise them to have grievances against past generations and current norms. 11. Turn world-class universities into indoctrination centers. Suspend the Bill of Rights on campuses. Train youth to graduate despising their own culture and civilization. Recruit foreign students from hostile nations to subsidize campus commissar bloat. Replace the curriculum with therapeutic propaganda. Ban the SAT/ACT and do not evaluate comparative high school GPAs. Ensure merit does not select the student body. Charge tuition higher than the rate of inflation. Bill the government when students default on their loans.

  8. I was in the path of totality for an eclipse in 2017 - it was definitely not 100% dark, but very dusk-like. Birds quit chirping, night-time insects started making their noises, etc. It was a cool experience.

  16. I have a friend that is taking me and my daughter out. I have never hunted turkey before so I have no idea what I am doing and he lives for getting people, especially young kids out turkey hunting. She will be shooting his .410 this weekend to get comfortable with it then we will be hitting the woods on the youth weekend.

  17. Movies and TV shows are all horrible when it comes to anything gun related. Unlimited ammo, no one ever has a bullet in the chamber always racking a round for dramatic effect, half the time the slide on a semi auto pistol never moves when the gun is fired, no one has trigger discipline, the ultra quiet silencer, etc. It's always entertaining to look for these things when watching a show.

  18. Gotta love The Deer Hunter with DeNiro where we see them load up their station wagon for deer camp in western PA. Pittsburgh skyline can be clearly seen in the background then just a few minutes later their in the Pacific Northwest and shoot a red stag which is not even native to North America.

  20. A shepherd was tending his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a dust cloud approached at high speed, out of which emerged a shiny silver BMW. The driver, a young man in an Armani suit, Ferragamo shoes, the latest Polarized sunglasses and a tightly knotted power tie, poked his head out the window and asked the shepherd, “Hey! If I can tell you how many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?” The shepherd looked at the man, then glanced at his peacefully grazing flock and answered, “Sure.” The driver parked his car, plugged his microscopic cell phone into a laptop and briskly surfed to a GPS satellite navigation system on the Internet and initiated a remote body-heat scan of the area. While the computer was occupied, he sent some e-mail via his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, nodded solemnly at the responses. Finally, he printed a 150-page report on the little laser printer in his glove compartment, turned to the shepherd, waving the sheaves of paper, and pronounced “You have exactly 1,586 sheep.” “Impressive. One of my sheep is yours,” said the shepherd. He watched the young man select an animal and bundle it into his car. Then the shepherd said, “If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my sheep?” Pleased to meet a fellow sportsman, the young man replied, “You’re on.” “You are a consultant,” said the shepherd without hesitation. “That’s correct,” said the young man, impressed. “How ever did you guess?” “It wasn’t a guess,” replied the shepherd. “You drive into my field uninvited. You ask me to pay you for information I already know, answer questions I haven’t asked, and you know nothing about my business. Now give me back my dog.”

  22. Was it once fired commercial 30-06 brass or military brass ? Make sure you have the de capping rod recessed into the die before using it. Also get some Hornady one shot case lube and spray your cases liberally. Under lubing is a major cause of stress and failure during the reloading process. Hand priming is ok for small pistol, but for large rifle and magnum loads, you need to seat the primer with authority and a mounted press system is best suited for that. Good luck and shoot safe. SJC

  23. I fly fished all winter for Ontario run steelhead and browns. Fished until the end of December for fingerlakes bows. Some of the stocked creeks near me are open year round. April first means crowded fishing will start. I never missed an opening day since I was 8 or 9 years old until sometime in my 30s. Now I work "opening day" and take my time off in the fall.
