  2. Picture from our fishing trip a month ago. Just before I broke my wrist and needed 2 1/2 hours of surgery to repair, effectively putting my fishing on hold. Darn it! Can't get fish pics to post right. I'll try again tomorrow. Wait...wait...I think I got it! Halibut and King salmon from Cook Inlet, on the Kenai Peninsula where I live these days.

  3. Any of you ever jumped out of a perfectly good airplane ? The wife just left to pick up her sister and head over to frontier skydiving for her first time. She didn't want to get a video because it was like an extra 100 bucks , i told her we've waisted 100 bucks on worse things and she should get it on video.

  4. When you look at the "solution", you really have to question the entire climate change assumption. Why do all the "scientific" studies suggest humans cause it, then support the US government instituting a major confiscatory tax program that amounts to wealth distribution from the world's rich countries to the world's poor countries? Why is the US the only country that is willing to go along with the plan? That's not a scientific solution to a real climate problem. That's a political ideology being forced on free societies against their will. That's the main reason most analytical people do not support the climate change prophets.

  10. I need help with VOTES in a photo contest again this year. You guys helped one of my friends win one of the cameras last year... even though I fell a little short by entering late, we put the heat on the leaders big time! Here's the link to the contest page: https://acm-summer-scenic.pgtb.me/2VCWdH Here's the pic I entered titled "Periwinkle" Hopefully I can close the gap on the leader who is over 100 right now. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

  11. While 14 ft deep V works great for 2 with all our gear, we where able to fish 3 but it was not very comfortable. If you are talking 3 people I would go with at least a 16ft, 4 I would get at least 18ft. Good luck with whatever you get Doewhacker!

  12. Listening is all rigged. I'm in fear when I imagine what is going on up the ladder after seeing what goes on at the bottom,having been a voter inspector in a small town. It's set up to utilize as much smoke and as many mirrors as possible. To keep the general population placated, confused,depending on where you stand on issues. All so the top tier can gain and increase their power and affluence. That's both parties. All we can do is manage to maneuver through the game to feel we've done the best we can. My biggest problem is seeing we are on an irreversible path that started in the 50's and 60's. See the Republicans were going after big business ,power, and world dominance..look at the origins of Nam. At the same time the Democrats were rolling out the magic carpet for all those downdraden masses..They went after education and lawyers.Who do you think taught me at 18 in school, to vote and make a difference,join the party that I think would make an impact on the world. We were in a war with a draft! Don't get me going on higher education...They taught us, our kids and their kids. The old guard was actually old and retiring when I left school.They then went after parental control. Letting all these poor kids know all their right's and telling them what few rights'm s their parents had,and backed it up with those layers and law. Now even when the Democrats have primed the pump for a reverse flow of events,they can't pull down the wedgy they have over Trump having the popular vote and instead of working with him they are helping the Democrats with their infighting. See there are still patriots in the General population...but few left in the government..on both sides.

  17. First let me say that that the 7MM Rem Mag is a very popular and effective chambering. However , in the hunting I have done over the years, I have never been a fan of any of the belted magnums. There are many " standard" cartridges that will do 90% of what the magnums do, and while doing it, they will burn considerably less powder and have considerably less recoil and muzzle blast. The belted mags have their niche, which is delivering relatively heavy for caliber bullets to game animals at long range. However, at the ranges that most of us feel comfortable shooting, let's say out to about 350 yards or so ( which is quite a poke) standard chamberings will get the job done as well as the magnums and more efficiently, considering the amount of powder expended.

  19. Perhaps if Mike Rossi got his head out of his azz and actually READ some of my posts. He would see that in no way, am I an anti hunter. But Mr, Rossi's biggest problem is that he is so absorbed in his own fantasy world and himself. That he has no idea what a REAL HUNTER is!

  20. HAHA...If anyone should pay it should be him. Thump is putting it softly. Everyone has something to put forth and many of us have help the cause with our donations for years. This kinda crying because people dont see it the way he see's everything is a joke, You would think one would see when you have a pile full of people that do not agree with you there may be a reason.

  21. Welcome to the Internet Mike. Pretty arrogant of you to come into the site suggestions thread and proclaim that you wont donate to the site where you thump your cause day in and day out, and then tell the site owner that they should appreciate your "information and content". JMO

  24. shooting till exhaustion may develop bad shooting form and habits......you may want to back off and build up slowly, stop way before you get to that point, shooting 100 arrows won't do you any better then shooting 20.

  25. don't birds have significantly different digestive systems then mammals? birds have gizzards that grind up their food, which would obviously give the lead a better and easier path into the body as opposed to a mammal....would it not? I would think if a human ate a few pieces of lead shot here and there, they would pass the majority of it before it does any harm.....unless you were eating it on a weekly or daily basis, I would think it has a minimal effect on people. I may very well be way off and totally wrong, but just a thought.

  34. There will be stalkers always on here. People cry and quit the site because of it. Cry about and beg for the acct to be deleted and then beg to come back, so how bad can this site be. The funny part about is the the ones who cry are the one who are quick to join the bashing.

  35. Grampy had nothing to do with it. It was my personal statement. Like the above two quotes aren't 'stalking'. You won't go away. You are like an STD, the gift that keeps on giving.

  38. 29 foot penn yan with 2 350 chevys 18 foot blue fin with a 90hp evinrude 16 foot starcraft with either a 15 hp evinrude pr 9.5 hp evinride depending on where I am duck hunting 12 foot starcraft that is only used when flat calm for late season duck hunting. depending on what lakes you fish I would go with an absolute minimum 14 foot but it would have to be deep and wide. would lean more towards a 16 or 18 footer also deep and wide with at or close to max hp rating just be conscience of the engine weight, generally 4 strokes are heavier than 2 strokes, just something to consider if you have an open traditional transom as you don't want to be too stern heavy. safety first, deep and wide generally equals stability and ability to take a heavier sea but just because its bigger doesn't mean take more chances. being at or near max hp will help with more passengers and will certainly be of a benefit to get to safety in a hurry if weather changes quickly. if you do upgrade in size make sure to double check your safety gear for compliance with uscg requirements for the size of the boat, it changes depending on the size of the boat, flares, signal flag, throwable flotation device etc. make sure your anchor is of suitable size and with ample chain and rope, even better is 2 anchors. another thing to look at and make it a serious consideration on purchase is flotation foam in the boat make sure it has it or make sure if it doesn't and you buy it have it done. you don't want the boat sinking out from under you if it gets loaded with water.

  39. got checked by DEC back at the ramp, nice guy and pleasant encounter....he never even broke out the ruler, he did dig down to the bottom of the cooler under all the fish....I assume that's where the less than honest guys keep the shorts.

  44. I enjoy killing a buck in an area I've never been before... part of the fun for me is not knowing anything about the area when I hunt it, then going in and finding a good buck. Most of the big bucks I've taken I never knew existed until the day I killed it. I would never hunt any deer using trail cameras to find and locate it... I do however thinks its kinda cool if someone has a cam pic of a buck I have already killed... and although it's not my cup of tea to use trail cams as a means to find bucks, I still hold the opinion that if it makes your hunting experience better then, by all means, have at it.
