  1. It was time to get a new farm advertisement truck….less going to the state.. Thinking on going with this design maybe full wrap with farm name added in. White on White should look pretty sweet.

  3. I just watched it again...What a great depiction of coming of age in the 1960s.... The little town I grew up in was so similar, albeit on a smaller scale... Not a smart phone in sight, either...hehehehe.. We even had our semi- outlaw fraternity, " The Shifters".....Nearby Corning had two, The Viscounts and The Epicureans....

  7. Grouse and rabbits love dense cover. I'm a big proponent of Timber Stand Improvement. I am always cutting cull trees to promote forest regeneration. I leave the tops on the ground and let brush grow up between them. Lots of grouse on my land, flushed 10 last weekend. I do think our rabbit population is in its down cycle though. Only jumped one the same day.

  8. Theres a great little documentary on the making of the movie on YouTube . George Lucas talks about the really cool ideas he had on shooting it etc . It cost like 780, 000 to make, but has made like 140 million . It also was Lucas’s first film.

  9. It’s quite obvious there is a member here who wants to “Duke it out” with all those he feels are now outcasts. FSW needs to dial it back a notch or “pump the brakes” a bit as he isn’t helping the newer, friendlier look of the forum. Lock it up or unleash the hounds; I don’t care, dinner is ready and I need to carve the turkey.

  10. I went out after small game with my neighbor the last 2 Sunday afternoons. Two weeks ago we saw (3) rabbits and a squirrel and killed (2) of the rabbits. Last Sunday, we didn’t see any small game whatsoever. I think I’ll skip next Sunday.

  11. It is all about habitat, food and cover, the better those three things are the better your wildlife populations will be. I had a decent wildlife population until the Gypsy Moth Blight, the worms ate everything and left a sterile landscape with no cover and no food. Consequently I killed very few game animals in the hope that their numbers will recover as the habitat improves. I am primarily a small game hunter so for me it stinks big time. Al

  12. So living full time at my hunting property I get to hit the woods so much more. What is so disappointing is the lack of small game. I just spent 3 hrs shed hunting with the dogs. We did not see 1 critter. I can remember flushing 2-3 grouse and seeing a bunny or two. Is it a bad cycle they are in or too many predators? My pups in a field!

  13. I have noticed that over the past several years, I have seen a significant increase in hawks. Man, they are perched on the electric wires everywhere. I know that they are very effective predators of small game. Yes, they are a very effective control animal when it comes to mice and rats, but that all comes with a pretty high price in small game numbers.

  15. I have great habitat for game. Even our new farmer leaves standing corn for the critters in every field he plants. Plenty of hedgerows by me. I planted 300 white spruce years ago from the Saratoga nursery trees are beautiful!

  17. I just leave the arrows from misses, in the trees as monuments to myself to make better shots! Got a few monuments scattered over the farm. Most are really old. One or two more recent.

  22. Ineptocracy Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

  23. Have you ever had an errant shot and embedded an arrow into a tree . Not easy to remove . Try this method to save the shaft and head . Unscrew the shaft from the head . Place double nuts on the screw end of the arrow head . Place a small pry bar end between the double nuts and the tree . Place mild pressure on the pry bar and ease the archery head out of the tree . I doubt that this happens very often but if it happens , this works . Make sure you check the arrow shaft really good as It could be damaged by the hard impact of hitting a hard solid object .

  24. Was out today setting a new stand up. About 50 yards from the new stand I found the pair of sheds from the 10 point I pursued most of the season. Glad he made it. I know have 1 of his sheds from previous year, and this years pair.

  26. Those are pretty neat Rob, nice work on them, one of my boys gave me an item made in a similar style for Christmas a few years ago. Where he got it or what was paid I do not have a clue. As far as price you have to try your best and find what the going price is for items in that kind of style are selling for and price your stuff accordingly. Al

  28. I use to get them also. Probably got such bad responses they gave up. The Vermin have done a number. Fur prices in the crapper a guy has to still go get them and just take them out. Sad but true. Left unchecked and you will be paying taxes on trees and no critters to chase.

  31. I sort of went in the opposite direction here. After watching coyotes sweep my fields trying ( I think successfully) to wipe out fawns, I let let my fields grow wild. I figured I would try to improve on the cover, and at the same time cut back on my fuel and time spent mowing them on a tractor to small for the job. It has been a win/win situation.

  32. Farmers have taken out hedge rows to make fields larger . It has taken away refuge for small game . I haven't seen a pheasant in several years .

  33. I posted in this thread about wanting to be back here for the For Sure Whatever thread about how all hunters are only motivated to hunt for antlers. I always like that conversation. I wonder if me reposting it (on your request) will get me banned. I hope not-I like your chuckle page. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  39. Why can't one post a link ,if one wants to switch they should be able to do so . We post links for everything. If mods or MIA owners are worried about people leaving I'd think they should have better things to do . My two cents

  40. I have to ask, why is this? I enjoyed conversing with many of the members that are no more. I personally don't have contact information for any of them. I would enjoy being able to converse with them again at times. That doesn't mean I would abandon ship here. I just don't get it. Oh and by the way, I haven't found a way to find it and I've searched...

  41. I am hunting rabbits with my beagles until season closes at the end of this month. Then I will be hunting snow geese until season closes on April 15. There are many hunting opportunities that you can still take advantage of. Here are a couple of pics from last year.
