  1. I nuisance trapped a couple nice beavers yesterday! In the perfect world, I try to time my nuisance work with the open trapping season so I don’t have to dispose of the critter…I always like to use as much of the animals I harvest as possible. Thought I would share, along with photos, six things that I typically do with the beavers I catch. 1. Skin out and sell or tan the pelt. 2. Remove the backstrap and hind leg meat to eat. If you have never tried beaver meat, I highly recommend you give it a try! I rate beaver as some of the finest meats I have eaten.

  8. Lol, always pleasant when you get a sarcastic PM from someone who thought they should have gotten it instead of the person I selected.....just makes it easier next time as I can remove them from my list of people I would send something to for free.

  11. And that scent is STILL lodged firmly in my nose’s memory from my Maine Bear hunt years ago. Mixed with stale donuts and maple syrup it a steal treat when that wind blows back in your face during the late summer.... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  18. Ha! My access and budget for microbrews is limited. Tomorrow will be from Speights, a brewery in Dunedin, NZ. I realized on this trip I like amber and caramel, but don't like the bitterness of hops, so I had the Mid Ale.

  22. So I have had this bow for awhile now it's a striker sringer [email protected] and dont have any arrows set up for it. I went rummaging around and found some feathers to make. I am going to start with 5575 32" gold tips and go from there. Should be pretty close to my set up now but every bow is a different animal. I am going try to keep posting pics of the project as I go. Hopefully this will be my Turkey bow this year. It's short and will do well in the woods or blind. Plus it puts an arrow down range pretty quickly.

  23. Jump the gun a bit. Picked up a new bow before getting rid of some. Primary hunting bow had been thru a lot and killed deer on both public and private land. Still its 8 yrs old and time for an upgrade. Plus no need to shoot a 70lb speed bow. First impressions and draw even on performance setting of this blacked out 60lb Bowtech Realm X is good. We'll see. Trad bows were pulling me in but I'm back to the dark side for now. Sent from my SM-G930V using Tapatalk

  28. I still use my ancient Herter's beam balance scale.. My reloading is not a high volume operation...I never load more than 40 rounds at a time, usually less, especially when working up a load, when I usually only load perhaps a dozen rounds at a time.. I enjoy the process, just relaxing and taking my time weighing out each charge...

  33. nah man. you've just got your head in the sand on this one. Your track record on this site is ripe with conspiracy theories and opinions, so we shouldn't be shocked that you're trying to read between the lines for something that isn't there. Hunting should be regulated. Unregulated hunting is what caused so many problems in the past. I wish people would be responsible and we didn't need regulations, but people are not.

  34. That RCBS 5-5 is a good quality solid scale. I did the opposite a few years ago Grampy, I purchased a digital scale to try out thinking it was an upgrade. It seems accurate enough but when it comes down to actually loading my shells I get out my old Lyman beam scale, I am just more comfortable using, it has many years of a proven track record with total reliability.

  35. We have a good bear population here where I hunt in 4H. See them often enough. Depending on the time of year. Never had an issue with them. Even had a huge boar stick his head in the ground blind I was bow hunting from, a few years ago. That did raise my heartbeat quite a bit, I must admit. As our noses were no more than a foot apart! Kinda looked like this!!

  36. I upgraded to this scale, a year or so ago, from the digital I was using. And love it!! I like to be certain on my powder measurements. This is a very nice, and very accurate scale for reloading. So nice of you jjb, to think of someone else that will get some use out of this great gift!!! Always amazed at the generosity of the members here.

  37. Would like to see a real updated study done in an area say like ours that have a real four season years. I would bet they would dispute this study a lot. Of course our hunting season being long would put deer on their table for many months because of poor hunters but I would bet deer would be a very steady line across the study in areas that have real winter’s.

  38. Beaver is best bait for fisher and black bear that I know of . Dec uses it at camera traps for Fisher, and many books tell of bears tearing beaver houses apart looking for them. You said it was a favorite meat and the critters seem to agree

  39. I have a adrenalin, and I never hold my bow and draw longer than a few seconds.. I never understood why people do? Perhaps I just hunt different.. I set my stands so deer come from behind me, they pop out at 10 to 18 yards either broadside or 1/4 ing away, head goes behind tree I draw aim and release.. simple head movement looking over my shoulder is all I need to confirm its deer I want to shoot or not.. I use my ears, I do not want to watch a deer coming for hundreds of yards.. My personal experiance is deer are spooked by the hunter moving into position , more than drawing their bo

  41. Damn. You argued that all the studies were for western coyotes and not applicable here so I provided one that only dealt with eastern coyotes in relation to deer populations that showed no decrease in overall deer population, but that's not good enough because ... reasons. Or at least because that's not how you see things in your tiny little corner of Delaware County. So then you go on to question the researchers and the funding org as their name is highly suspect. Let's see what these ponytailed, lefty, anti, liberal, quiche-eating radical hippies have to say on hunting. Se

  46. Well, my Darton is a 1986 and I hunted with it from 1993 until this past fall. This year I broke down and bought a brand new Bear Vast. So about every 27 years or so I guess. I think there's something wrong with it though. It doesn't make any noise when you shoot it, there's no vibration, the arrows fly flat and they go so fast you can't watch them in like with my old bow!

  47. I have my original bow (14 years old)cause it works. I’m not much of a “gear guy” so I stick with what works for me and change my strings every few years and traded out the whisker when it hit scrappy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
