    Got another eagle in the works after getting my little carving pit cleared out from all the snow yesterday. This wasn't the original plan for this log, but I ran into a rot pocket running right down the center. Had to change the plan and go with a design that would remove that portion, and thankfully it didn't run the entire length of the log. Still lots of shaping and detail need to be added to this one but it's coming along pretty good so far. Might make this guy standing on a pile of skulls if I get brave enough and don't run into any more problems. Hoping to get a little break in the weather now to push this guy along a little quicker heading into the finish work.

    I'll one up you. Our French doors lead directly outside. Last night going to bed - wife : The French doors in the back living room won't lock. Me: Are you sure you were able to shut it fine? Wife: Yes, but it won't lock. I locked it with the door open, but when shut it won't lock. Me: Usually that means something is jamming the mechanism or the door/track is jammed up with something. Wife: I dunno. It shut fine. Me: Ok, as long as you are sure. Me at 5:25 AM this morning when I go to start the coffee: What the F@ck. Door's wide open. Ice jammed in preventing door from actually shutting.

    140yds off sticks. 4 shot group low and then 2 clicks up and just on top of x. Should be on from 0-225ish without adjusting poa for yotes. Shooting better more it breaks in. Pretty happy with it so far. Didn’t want to set up lead sled and table in this weather. But will when weather breaks. Good for sat. Fingers crossed.

    In 2013 when I was in the Marine Corps I spent a little over 3 months assisting boarder patrol on the Texas and New Mexico border. As a Sgt I road from post to post with a border patrol officer checking on the posts that his and my men were manning. Spending 12hrs a day riding around with those guys going to every call that came over the radio in that sector was a very eye opening experience. While there I was completely astonished as to how much traffic comes across the border on a day to day basis. In the grand scheme is it a large percentage of illegal immigrants, who knows? It’s not like they sign a roster when they come across illegally. If I have a broken pipe in my house I’m not going to start by mopping up the water I’m going to start by stopping the water from coming in. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Just finished up here. And guess who came to help? My grandson Zach! He worked doing all the car cleaning and shoveling for almost two hours, while I ran the blower. He busted his butt for a 14 year old. He's also going home with $40 in his pocket! He didn't want to take it. I insisted.....I want him to know hard work will be rewarded. He could have stayed home where it's warm, and played video games. He wanted to go help grampy instead. Man......do I love that kid.

    I think I have posted about this before, but my family fosters brood dogs for Guiding Eyes for the Blind in Patterson. Our latest brood, Ikea, whelped six new pups this past weekend. She carried seven, but one unfortunately didn't make it through whelping. Let's hope they all make the grade to become the next generation of service dogs. Mom and pups are resting well as you can see. I'll try to post updates on their progress as I get them.

    I might be in the minority but I don’t want the non essential government to open until we get the funding for the wall. Yes the shutdown is on trumps shoulders and I love every second of it! Finally we have a president that’s willing to do what needs to be done! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Went out for the first trip of the year on Oneida yesterday around 10AM. Limited on eyes in 40 minutes, picked up 8 perch in the next 2 hours, along with 6 more walleyes before they shut off. Sent from my moto g(6) using Tapatalk

    I’ve had my eye on this buck since last year. He really blew up this year, and I’ve been watching him since July. I had one close encounter with him on October 1, but he stayed just out of bow range. I got many pics of him through the first 3 weeks of the season, but I never laid eyes on him again. For 3 weeks he disappeared. I thought he was dead. Then I headed upstate for gun season and I got pics of him 3 days in a row, while I was 300 miles away. Figures. He disappeared from my cams once again, only showing up once or twice before making an appearance on Christmas morning. I didn’t hunt too much in December after going at it hard in October and November. I was worn out. After seeing him on Christmas, it lit the fire again. I typically enjoy hunting the late season as they usually become quite predictable in their movements. But not him. It turned into quite the chess match for a the next couple of weeks. I finally saw him again on January 6, the first day of shotgun here. He came out to the field at 180 yards. I let him walk. Since Christmas, I’ve been hunting every weekend and even getting out after work now and then. I got another pic of him on January 18, and he was grouped up with a few other bucks and even sparring with one of them. I knew he was big, but watching him spar with this other buck really put it into perspective on how much bigger he was. I hunted this morning without seeing him and planned on hunting tonight and tomorrow night. I was getting burned out and decided that if I didn’t get him by tomorrow, I was going to pack it in. At about 4:30 or so, 3 small bucks came out of the corner of the field 20 yards from me. They had all shed their racks. This was my biggest fear that he would show up having dropped his rack. Soon after, a nice 2 year old 8 pt joined the party. He was in the last pics that I got with my buck last week. Then a small spike showed up. I got into shooting position behind the tree that I was using for cover. Once the 8 came out, I just knew that my buck was going to show up finally. Sure enough, after several minutes, he walked out at 20 yards. I let him have it and watched him go down in the field. Talk about coming down to the wire. I set my mind on harvesting this buck, and without the use of my cell cams, it probably wouldn’t have been possible. I’m pretty sure this was him last year. Last week.
