  2. I braved the elements yesterday and got in on a 6-pack charter for cod off of Long Island. The weather wasn't bad for this time of the year, and the ocean was kind. I didn't get a limit but close to it. Cod is at the very top of my favorite fish to catch & eat, great start to the New Year!

  3. I was having trouble with one of my trail cams, so I cleaned it up and set it out in my yard here on Long Island to test it. I was expecting the usual doe or cat but holy crap!!! I still can’t believe it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. After Brady threw the pick 6, my wife was yelling "Yes! Yes!" at the top of her lungs. It was the loudest I heard her yell like that since . . . well never, actually. Her love for the Bills is outmatched only by her hatred of the Patriots.

  8. First day in the books . Eats like a horse... has a nose. Smelled breakfast sitting on the counter top , plops down in front and howls. Lmao. Cried at bedtime for 20 minutes. Woke me up at 3:30. Out peed. 430 howling back out 1 and 2. Slept until 6. Woke me up out again and starving boy wanted breakfast. Just settled in for a nap . Miss Ellie wants to play with him but she doesnt understand he is a baby. Ran him over a couple times .nocked him over while sniffing him over . Nock on wood no accidents in the house for day one. No accidents in the crate either.

  10. Well I got it all welded up and finished the mock up. Figured I’d snap a few photos. I need to pick up some hose clamps, and bungee cords to hold the ammo storage boxes down . I’m going to coat the radiator rack with truck bed liner. I installed external posts/ jump points for the battery to make it easier if I ever need to jump it or to just hook up the float charger for storage. Very happy how it turned out , wife’s will be next .

  12. He’s 22 years old and his first ever playoff game. He went to Wyoming college that never played in a big game. He played hard and made a couple of mistakes but i was happy the way he played, ya can’t hate the way he played or how he blamed the loss on himself. He’s a leader and will do great things in the future, give it time. What were you doing at 22 years old ?

  19. I'm in, with the bow. Made an impulse decision to get out in the woods instead of watching tv. Have low expectations of seeing deer, but it is too nice a day to just sit on the couch. Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk

  20. Thank you for so many of you responding to this thread. Obviously there's a variety of opinions on this subject and a lot of that is situational which I quite understand. I sit and stand in my stand. They are always tucked into a tree with good cover but not enough to hinder a shot. Being in 9P means I get to see a lot of doe walk right under stand such that I could spit on them and without permit it's a nada. And even then I just don't shoot any doe when I do have a permit. No babies and no mamas with babies. But large single doe taste just fine. I guess the main reason for want to go lower is I started crossbow two years ago and very much enjoy it. I've mess my back up so bad that holding back a bow for any length of time is very painful. I had to give up bow few years back. Crossbow isn't an issue. Really sucks to get old but as long as I can crawl, I will hunt. My main concern is shot angle. I get the further they are away the less it matters. Even though I feel very accurate with X-bow out to 50 yards there isn't many places I can take that shot and if I could, I wouldn't. I've set a distance limit of 35 yards. This year I had a deer come in too close to shoot at first due to shot angle. I waited until he moved out further and even then I had to use my tenth grade geometry and biology and play the angle to get a decent lung shot. Glad I payed attention in those classes now but I never thought I would use it. If my stand was lower the angle would improve. Too low and you get busted. There's a trade off. As far as wood stands, if I know the age and how it was built I'm OK with that. But come on, how many wooden stands have you seen poorly built, that are ancient and are anchored into a growing tree. I'm not getting in that. Metal or wood I'm not trusting either much passed five years unless I carefully inspect and overhaul them with new bolts. I don't trust Chinese quality control. I was a rock climber at one point in my life. Not afraid of heights and I know how to anchor but I respect the situation. You fall rock climbing it always ends the same way. You smash into a wall of rock. It really hurts.

  22. I remember reading articles about deflection testing years ago..They set up grids of wooden dowels and shot through it at targets at varying ranges with many different projectiles, including shotgun slugs and heavy bullets in a 45/70.... The results as I remember it indicated that unless the target was VERY close to the grid, ALL of the projectiles deflected enough to cause a miss or a bad hit...There didn't seem to be any evidence that heavy, slow moving projectiles deflected any less or any more than lighter, faster projectiles... I'm not sure how scientific these tests were, but the moral of the story was that it is much better to find an opening in the brush than to try to plow through it, regardless of what you are shooting..

  24. I’m all ladders ,15-18 footers , some pretty big ones. Mine have seats that flip,up I can have my back right against the trunk if I wanted to . Most of mine are on telephone pole type trees just the way it is . The height difference between the entry and exit hole of my xbow buck this year was a couple inches , I don’t shoot a deer with bow or xbow more then 20 yards and are most under that . Heres my most hidden ladder , I killed two bucks out of it this year , could do that every year out of it , if I always sat there .

  31. We have had zero luck. I missed a fox this morning. We are very new at this and have zero idea what were doing. I've got a foxpro patriot. I start out with distress calls then eventually to coyote howls. I run each distress call 5 min each. The howls I let it go 1 or 2 howls then maybe 2 min break. Were at each set about 45-50 min. We've had 2 coyotes howl the past 2 nights but have not come in. Any help is needed lol I thought tonight would be good but it got very windy and rain/snow mix.

  34. Lot of confusion over the height of ladder stands comes from the mfger's spec'ed height. Some are to platform, while many are to the shooting rail. Wish they'd all get their $hit together and advertise height to the platform, only! Lot of different terrain, vegetation, sight of view and personal preferences regarding stand height. If you prefer sitting on a bucket or up ~25' & are successful - No one should criticize your choices!

  36. Lol.. . Not due to inexperience or skill...I find myself 20 -30 feet in the air often when hunting an open woods with little cover. If you are comfortable that high, your odds of being busted are much lower. I still would rather be 12' up in the middle of a cedar tree if I can find one..lol... In my early years of hunting I killed most of my deer from the ground(usually sitting on a pail) On the average I'm not fond of a stand in the 6-10' range. Unless you are covered up real well or dead still you are right in the deer's line of sight or peripheral vision and might be better off on the ground.

  44. I'd want a very wide tree or a lot of background cover if I were to hang a climber. I own one and it's set in a thick Norway spruce tree with lots of thick lower limbs. I have a 17' ladder stand. Once in place, they are fairly safe, but I'd rather be 20-25 ft up in a hang on to avoid detection on the public land I hunt. Picking a tree with multiple limbs and some background cover to break up one's silhouette and allow for drawing or movement to get in place for a shot without being bused is the key, regardless of height.
