  1. Last August a little less than a year ago I put out this older Bushnell camera. It takes beautiful pictures and with just 8 energizer max still had quite a bit of battery left. Over 1200 pictures, only 2 humans (in March in the snow and one of the 2 with a bow which was super odd). 2 bucks and a doe(s). But here are some highlights I thought you all would enjoy. hard to see both, but 2 cubs here with momma

  2. What a ,long day , but it went flawlessly, two,comments I heard often was, “ the best wedding I’ve been to.” And the food was awesome.” Brisket out of this world , chicken French was great , the sides top notch , coconut shrimp ,meatballs , stuffed mushrooms all,of it great Open bar all night, Makers Mark, Sapphire ect , gal who ran the event venue was just the best . There were people from the west coast , Fla, Virginia, Tennessee Delaware, Mass. Conn. and on and on . I cried more then when the Beagle died . Heres the song with accompanying photo montage that played during father daughter dance ,you may enjoy some of these pics. The deer, I had her walking drainage ditches at the farm with me at the other end .. and I’m still wiped out …. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ZAPq6sBD-0YV56mnyEcWcQpgBH4LlThS/view

  3. What are the odds on this photo? Theirs so many coons this year, think they’ve taken up residence in the abandoned house again.

  4. This camera has only been up a few days. Good to see a decent buck in this spot already. Usually don't see good bucks on this part of the property till October.

  6. Hi all, So it's been quite some time. Just want to let you know I'm alive and doing well and no, I didn't get chased away from the forum or get disgusted by it what so ever. It's been a crazy year. I use to log on a lot because I worked in an office and I would just have the forum open on my computer and then when I got home, I'd check in as well. I haven't logged in for several reasons. 1. I was working for a hospitality business that included event venues, restaurants, and hotels. Of course COVID took a big hit on it. I was laid off for a bit. Eventually when things started to open I was one of the first to be called back. My team was a fraction of what it use to be and I was asked to open up all most of the location by myself. I was working a lot and that was the last time I logged into the forum. 2. I also realized that the industry I was in was probably not the best industry so I put my name out there and was recruited by a new company that specializes in biometric data and I took the job. Being a security company that holds sensitive data, I have to use a computer that is locked. While I can work around it, I decided to be the good company boy and not log in while working. Starting a new job and also learning new technology also means I'm just as busy as well. 3. When working, we some times get so immersed in our works that we forget to look up. During my year sitting at home during lock down I realized that I was not as involved in my children's lives as I should be. So I no longer log in after work either. On weekends, I always try to do something with them. 4. I also purchased a second home as an investment property. It's a multi-family home that I rent out. As a "slumlord", I had to also had to fix up the house so it would be fit for tenants, go through the renting process, and now do occassional maintenances there, etc. Anyway, hopefully everything should eventually start to settle down and I'll check in more often but the odds of me being as involved as I was before probably won't come soon. Oh, and apparently my login is all funky. Fortunately, I never logged out of TapaTalk so I can still check in every once in a while with it. Best, Elmo Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. I can't thank you guys enough. We heard we might get another call later this week. I wrote telling her to be on the lookout for extra mail coming her way. I did receive a letter from her saying she was sorry she got so emotional on the call but felt it was therapeutic and needed to get it out! We have an official Alpha Company West Point page that a lot of photos get posted to. Each company has a photographer. Here is a few of her with huge smiles on her face! Maybe she got a few letters from you guys! Seems she is doing much better!!!

  10. It was a wonderful A day at West Point Saturday. We were able to spend the evening with my Daughter and most of today. We chilled out in the hotel room and she took out all the letters and cards. You guys were the best! The cards you sent what you wrote to her was amazing! I love you all for what you did for my Daughter. She was just dropped off at Post getting ready for classes tomorrow. Good Karma came back to me this month and you were all a great part of it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Burt

  12. So glad we did this. It's been about 3 weeks since it's been installed. Install and water cost $2400. Electric to code cost me $750 as I did most of the work myself. So I've got $3150 in a "free pool" lol. In the process of extending the deck and that will add about $500 to the total. Chemicals added another $250. We've been enjoying the pool multiple times a day. Nephews and nieces have been over several times. We've seen these kids more in the past few weeks more than we've seen them over the past few yrs, lol. Seeing them has made it more than worth the cost.. Wife and I are in it every evening. And most days, I stop home from doing lawns and jump in quick to cool off, then go back out mowing. Even though the water temp is 84°, it feels refreshing when the outside temps are in the 90's. Evenings are different.. the air temps are in the upper 60's to low 70's and I actually get chills when I stand up as the air temps are lower than the water temps. The warm water actually feels good when the evening temps are lower. Overall, were very happy with our decision..

  14. Just got home from a trip up to Vermont, took a quick walk through the garden this morning and everything is doing great…we let some of our leafy veggies, etc. bolt so we can collect seeds. Blueberry’s have peaked and starting to wane. Will be giving the pumpkin patch some attention later (my brother and I have a pumpkin contest each year…we are currently locked up in a tie). My wife spun only a few frames before we left and ended up with an incredible amount of honey…always deceiving to me how much the frames yield!). All of your garden and veggie photos posted above look great!!

  15. So I sold it . Now to those who contacted me here, being so old I did want to sell it to anyone I was even remotely connected to . Decent guy with a young family , just wants to take his kids out a few times a year,and see if boats were for him . I took him out and showed him the ropes , from launching, starting , driving ,fueling and on and on . I knew he’d go through the old boat and upgrade what I let go over the 50 years it’s been in our family . He didn’t try to “ deal “ on the price ,so I got the “ box” out, extra prop, winterizing stuff, spark plug wrench and more .oh and I tossed in a combo set of O’Brien skis and a tube . he sent me this pic today

  24. Hey Gang, Just got a letter from Teddi she is doing great! She is so thankful for all the cards it meant the world to her!!!!! This is what she wrote, "I've gotten so many letters from your hunting buddies online. They are extremely thoughtful and kind. It's really rewarding to receive praise from a stranger. Please thank them all on my behalf." She really loved shooting the M240 Bravo, M249 Saw and M320 grenade launcher! She says there are going to be a lot of deer to eat this season! lol August 13th is Acceptance day when she finally becomes a Plebe! Thank you all again for all the letters and cards. It means so much. FL

  27. My nephew was going thru our log book and informed me i killed. 173 deer in my 34 years of hunting. 54 of which were antlered bucks.. of which i have 5 head mounts, 4 "european" the rest are skull caps. . We have a possibility of killing the 500th deer of my property since 93 season this year if we take 22 deer this year.. If you figure 35 lbs of meat on average that 8 ton of meat from the land .. he said ive taken about a 1/3 of them myself.. this is what i get for having a nephew taking accounting/ buisness at St. Bonaventure .. Any one else keep records out there..

Last minute excitement for me that starts with a 2:01 alarm clock and a 2:30 jog to montauk to join my buddy, his father and son on a charter for striped bass (and hopefully fluke and sea bass).

  33. Just picked up 20 lbs of sausage, half garlic half hot from this little pork shop on Lexington in downtown smallbany. They did a nice job! Dropped off 15 lbs of venison on Tuesday, at least 20 lbs end product done by Friday. I've already had the hot courtesy of a buddy a month ago, it was awesome. Looking forward to getting some of this garlic on the grill. 60 bucks seems like a decent deal? It was the last of my non-ground up venison from last year.

  39. Going up into the Allagash way up in northern Maine to hunt black bear. Likely stick to rifle and not bring the bow. Sounds like the outfitter not setup for bowhunters as well. Despite I've gotten them on trail cam and there's more each year around here in eastern NY, I have yet to see one. Just not as prevalent. Trip starts opening day, the week before Labor day.

  41. I generally try to wear muffs when shooting and even generally wear then when hunting predators. Deer I haven’t because for me it’s a one shot type hunt. But 3 years I forgot to put them on and shot 4 times at a running fox with a 223 with a muzzle brake that was loud as heck. That mistake really cost me. My hearing was like a staticky radio for several weeks and the ringing never fully stopped. My hearing was never the same especially my left ear. I have been managing without aids since then and with tinnitus. Finally decided to correct it and got some hearing aids. The good news is that I feel like have great hearing with them on and the doc is hopeful it will calm the tinnitus. They are also pretty discrete as my son didn’t notice them until I pointed them out. BUT I could have avoided this if I wasn’t so careless. You all know this already but I will reinforce it if it helps one person. Wear hearing protect at all times when shooting. No animal is worth damage to your hearing. I can stream music now without anyone knowing. Lol. Trying to find the bright side.
