  5. So at 10:45 this morning, I was at my house, in my dad's passenger seat. He stopped by, so we are chot chatting, and I see a flicker of black in the woods. A lot of thick pines here, and deadfall in the woods, so we both are squinting in trying to see if it was a black squirrel, or bear. So we get out, and sure enough a lone bear. Decent size, we see 10's of bear here in this area, throughout a year, and I woukd say it was on the larger end of the average size we see. I bought my hunting license last Friday, if I was out back, I would have seen the bear to harvest by the looks of where it came from, lol. Took a pic, ran down my driveway quick before he crossed. Never gets old to see bear. My dad headed home shortly after, and saw another about 25 miles away, this cooler weather, seems to help, at least thats when I notice more.

  7. My wife and I left Saturdays banquet with another new toy.. We got lucky again and won a Browning A-bolt III in 6.5cm. I have yet to shoot a Browning rifle, but man do they feel great when shouldered. We won the custom engraved A-Bolt III in 270, at the banquet 2 years ago and have yet to fire that one still. Both wood Walnut Stocks, It makes me want more wood stock guns.. The factory synthetic stocks feel like garbage compared to these stocks.. Sold my Savage Axis in 6.5cm since I dont need 2 of them. Ill take that money and pick up a nice set of optics for it..

  23. My bird dog max watches the security camera screen and there's a pigeon outside he's been going back and forth from the security camera screen to the window and he's crying and he wants to go out and get this poor little pigeon that's lost. Poor Max is crying up a storm. Sorry can't get the video to load

  24. Ok, not really trail cam pics. Shot through my kitchen (screen) window with a hand held camera (Canon Power Shot). Anyway, we seem to have a lot of red fox and few if any coyotes this year. In areas where the coyote population is high, do they drive the fox out? Our coyote population was real high several years ago, now they are scarce.

  28. I don't think there is a chance that this is credible. If I were the Republicans I would give her a chance to sit and provide PROOF and without "conditions" if she isn't willing then move the vote forward. We need to show them that if they throw up a roadblock we'll either step over it or walk around it. It's time for the gloves to come off and in the words of Obama, "Elections have consequences".

  30. 9/20/2018 I received a call from a hunter shortly before dusk last night, asking for help tracking a bear he had just shot. He and his brother had tracked for a couple hundred yards, then lost blood in a swamp grass/tag alder area. Luna and I met them in Potsdam this morning, then were led to the hunting property in Parishville. The hunter had shot the bear behind the shoulder with a 300 Savage, at 40 yards. The bear had rolled, then got up and ran off. Luna led us right to their point of loss, then down one of the many trails crisscrossing the small swamp. 300 yards into it, we found 2 piles of bear scat, 1 very fresh. We also found a bed, with no blood in it. We left the swamp and went into some woods. At this point I decided to take Luna back to last blood and do a restart to ensure we were on the correct bear. She took us back to the same spot, showing us one drop of blood we hadn't seen the first time. We continued on, working through fairly open wooded areas, swampy areas with lots of blow downs, and areas so thick you couldn't see 3 feet in front of you. We were in one of these thick areas when I heard something moving 10 or 15 yards in front of us. We stopped and listened and the hunter heard it. I had the hunter's brother stay put with Luna, and I went to the right and the hunter went to the left. I heard the hunter holler that he saw him, then a minute later I heard two shots. Unfortunately he missed the lumbering bear at 50 yards with his .40 caliber handgun. Lesson learned.....I will never again allow a hunter to go on a bear track with me during the day without a rifle. We started the track on private property, went on to County land, then came to private property and had to stop to obtain permission to enter. Many thanks to the owner of Parishville Sand and Gravel for allowing us to proceed. Per gps, we made a 2 mile circle and ended up back almost exactly where we started. We never saw the bear again, but Luna was locked on and definitely upheld her end of the deal. This bear will survive his experience, obviously no vitals were hit. Remember the aiming point on a bear is "the middle of the middle".

  31. I dont figure equipment costs in other than implements that are specifically for the plots. Id have my tractor, etc anyway. I just put fuel, seed, fert, spray materials into the cost. I have less than $300 into my plots this year.

  32. My wife costs me much more than the plots. I've kept her around for decades. It's something you love. So money well spent. No matter what you do, for something you love, or any hobbie, it will cost you dollars. Well worth the price for the happiness gained IMO.

  35. i would put that one on the wall for sure. All the time we have tried to get sight of him and for the areas i hunt that is a big rack. But def small for his age and body. Def a trophy by age and knowledge, esp to me. Would love to see him while in the stand even if i dont get a shot. got within 70 yards of this boy twice last year, but would still rather get a shot at that old 8 if given the choice.

I will work out the kinks and then blow everyones mind with wood fired pizza. I am in the Cooperstown area... Just before gun season maybe?

  39. Very true. And watching the MSM "news" channels just makes you dumber. I worked in a dental lab recently for about a year and the owner had a big flat screen tv on the wall above the work bench always tuned to CNN. I asked him a couple of times to change the channel. Game shows or something would have been a nice respite. I always had a 9mm in an ankle holster and thought several times about using it. I finally quit. I simply couldn't take it any more. I suppose people in airports can just tune it out, but when it's right in your face for 10 hours a day it pushes the envelope.

  40. Just got my new cam and strings for my Elite Ritual set up about a two weeks ago. Was not too concerned about hitting slightly right because I had to replace the string and cams and reset everything back up. First 2 shots where Aug 25th (30 yards) and Sept 4th (about 17 yards), 3rd is our new apple buck (about 20 yards) just a fun target and last was today (30 yards). All first shots except the apple buck. Sorry for posting the apple buck but its just a cool target!

  42. My main point wasn't clear . This could happen to anyone at any time . Other than being old and overweight , I have always been able to hike back into the woods with my hunting equipment with no problem . This bleeding internally came out of the blue . In my semi consciousness I started thinking of all the things I had put off for another day and would never have gotten done . There is so much catching up to do when I get well . No more procrastinating ! Don't ever think that you are indestructible !

  45. I am assuming by downstate you mean the Catskills or Hudson valley regions. Well, there is quite a bit of state and DEP land around the Catskill region, but the problem is that there will not be many DMP's you will be filling since not very many are given out in that area. So, especially for someone like you who will be rifle hunting, the likelihood of filling too many tags will not be great. Throw in antler restrictions which is the rule in the region and hopes diminish even more. In my opinion downstate is good for bowhunting and the short ML season. If you are strictly a rifle hunter wanting some meat, better look elsewhere.

  48. It hurt me to quit. The owner is generally a very nice and mostly intelligent guy who voluntarily chooses to be mis-informed by the media. It was also a pretty cool job, building dentures and bridges for people. My woodworking, gunsmithing, and reloading background taught me to pay attention to the details. I felt like I was helping a small portion of humanity. But it was hard to ignore the CNN idiots screeching their BS right in my face all day every day, and me having to call BS every half hour. At first I thought maybe he was just testing me somehow, but it persisted and I left the lab one evening and told him I wouldn't be back.
