  1. The issue of illegal invaders of our border and the burgeoning results on our safety and economy are just one aspect of the treason being committed by this administration since its inception. There has to be more to the current downward slide of our position in the world than just coincidence. Biden or whoever is pulling his strings keep edging us closer to world war. His financial and policy gifts to Iran are now undoing everything that Trump had in place to keep Iran under control with no ability to financially get into the adventures that they are now involved with. Biden financed their war on Israel and on us right from the beginning with the billions given to Iran. He also destroyed Trump initiated policies to keep Iran in an impoverished condition where waging and financing wars was virtually impossible. Budget cuts on the military have now left us in a condition of shortages. The destruction of our fuel industry is crippling our economy along with the foolish mad expenditures of their so-called green energy policies. The Democrats are doing everything they can to bankrupt this nation and its citizenry. His wholesale voter bribery with free this and free that is running amok in our economy. The absolute acts of irresponsibility regarding the trashing of our legal system has us in fear of using the subways and even the streets. Come-on, all these things and more are not simply coincidental. It has to be an orchestrated plan of chaos, being perpetrated by some external force and influence (Think China). I think the crooked shenanigans that the entire Biden family have been implicated in, kind of makes one wonder where his allegiances really are. I know that we always hesitate to use the word treason when talking about the highest office in our country, but at some point, you have to say, "If it walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, and looks like a duck, it probably is actually a duck.

  2. Had a Tom behind my house around 9:30 am gobbling. Also yesterday afternoon around 4 pm a bunch were gobbling back and forth. Not missing the opener this year!

  5. Business decision to remove.the hunting section, made from corporate. Smart move for them, on a financial point of view.

  7. You know, a lot of these corporate moves against hunting would never happen if sportsmen would simply stop going to them completely. I know that we are not in any kind of majority or anything, but we still are a large enough block of customers so that if we all decided not to patronize their store for anything anymore, I believe that the impact would be felt and noted by other stores that might be considering similar moves. I have not gone to Dicks for anything other than to use their restroom at Eastview.....lol. I go to Runnings in Canandaigua who has maintained their stock in hunting, fishing, and even trapping. I prefer to patronize stores that have not chosen to snub a whole segment of their customers. By the way, I don't believe that they made their choices based on a shrinking number of hunters. It really looks and smells like an anti-hunting statement aimed squarely at hunters personally. I refuse to reward any of that kind of thinking with my business. And you know what?......They don't have a thing that I cannot find elsewhere and usually at a better price.

  8. Went to Dicks yesterday here on Long Island to stock up on some fishing stuff and the hunting section is gone, relegated to a 6x6 shelf with some left over xxxL or youth size jackets and 3 orange hats.

  9. Hi All, It's been a long while since I posted here. I apologize for "just dropping in," and if this is not appropriate of course, mods please delete. I don't mean to offend or trample any rules. I have a beautiful, intelligent, loving, sweet, gentle, loyal Long-Hair German Shepherd. I love him more than any creature I've known in my life. He wakes me up every morning rubbing his face against mine and cooing love noises. He is an amazing dog. He is 5 years old, intact, and has had extensive training. Unfortunately, he HATES my neighbor's poodle (as do I, along with the neighbor). And he has now twice broken loose and attacked the dog. We live in a small neighborhood in the suburbs of NYC (which I also hate, but my work ties me), and these people regard me as a total redneck pariah. So... there is now talk of legal action. And I really need to find him a new home. It breaks my heart, more than I can express. I'm reaching out to the venues/friends/places I know where there might be kindrid souls, good people who might want and be able to love and care for such a dog. There is of course no money thing here, for the right home I will deliver him and whatever stuff we have of his (bed, leashes, food, toys... he would love the continuing scents etc.). All I want is to find him a loving home. Please reply or message me if you think you might be interested, or know someone who is. Thanks, jmark

  11. A little spot in the clouds thinned out enough for us to see it pretty good at work in North Tonawanda on Monday: I thought it was pretty cool. With the clouds, we didn’t need the eclipse glasses.

  12. After 3 weeks of a personnel problem at the handgun permit office I finally got the Pathfinder on my permit and got it home. Pretty much the same feel as my Bulldog but I like the grips and sights more, soon as I get some decent weather I will hit the range and sight her in. Al

  14. The hunter stereotype is changing. It's not just social media glory hounds, it's the new age hunters and the sort of lack of respect for anything attitudes that's making it harder. I remember loosing private land due to other DB's long ago. Some was original owners passing away and kids not wanting hunting on the land, some was other hunters doing stupid things, and yet still others were just the owners no longer wanting others wandering around their land. This really isn't a new phenomenon, it just seems to be happening more these days. I am sorry you lost the property, that always sucks.

  15. I guess if I'd been run over by a snowmobile (verified) and clubbed in the head a couple times (speculation) I'd be a little bit out of it too. I've got no problem hunting wolves or any other game legally. But what's the sense in dragging out the killing process and demeaning your quarry for shits, giggles and stroking your ego on social media? Some people lead shallow lives.

  21. Today I put my domestic Royal Palm Turkeys I raised from last year outside in their summer pen for the first time. It was not long before a war of gobbles between my Toms and the local wild bunch took place with a lot of strutting a couple of hundred yards apart, things are going to be interesting around here. Al

  22. Man, I totally get your frustration. It's a shame we have to deal with these disrespectful hunters ruining it for everyone else. Smart move sticking to state land to avoid the drama.

  23. That was pretty cool and it got a lot darker than I thought it would. We took a break from work to watch it from the park behind us. There was to much noise to see how the birds reacted unfortunately as that was something that I was interested in.

  24. Here in Howard the clouds ruled. It got pretty dark around 3:25 but within minutes was back to normal. We saw nothing....but it was a nice party and the kids enjoyed the day off!

  25. The clouds broke up here enough to give a pretty good view, I was down in the barnyard to see how all the animals reacted. I kind of thought as the darkness crept in the chickens would go into their coops and go to roost but it got dark almost instantly like a light switch was thrown. The sheep the geese cattle and chickens got caught in the open and they were definitely confused when it got totally dark so fast and all the barnyard night lights came on. But the totality only lasted for a couple of minutes, it got pretty light out quickly and their routine went back to normal fast as if nothing happened. Cool and interesting! Al

  27. You have permission, you are ahead of the game, but we seldom can change peoples long term thoughts....but you can head them off. An offer to post the property at the access sites? Put a camera up or two to help their security and peace of mind? My property borders state land and a neighbors. Both propertys are posted. The previous owner we were both happy to allow the other to wander/hunt on the property if no one was there (easy to see if cars are present). When asked, the current owner was very politely hesitant to agree to the same (to my dismay....his nearest corner is a great funnel area). I could see he was uncomfortable with me asking. I quickly stated, " You and I both have our own camps for the same reason. We want to know who is on them. No problem. Smiles returned, good relations maintained. And I honor that.

  29. Im currently debating a Libbie dude on the NJ forum who (Surprise!) has a dreadful case of TDS and believes the #1 issue this country faces is income inequality !! Doesnt matter WHEN ,WHERE OR WHAT time frame were talking about, some of these Lefties are SO classically trained and ideologically entrenched that the Chinese Army could be in the midst of launching an invasion-through our open souhtern border, nonetheless- and , literally, at their front door and they would say that, anyway!! unbelieveable

  30. Kinda Long ... Sorry ( from Fox News ) Here are 11 now familiar steps to civilizational destruction: 1. Wipe out a 2,000-mile border. Allow 10 million foreign nationals to enter unlawfully. Have no audit of any; nullify all federal immigration laws. Let in toxic drugs that kill 100,000 Americans a year. Give free support to those millions who broke the law. Smear any objectors as racists and xenophobes. 2. Run up $35 trillion in national debt. Keep adding $1 trillion to it each 100 days. Defame anyone wishing to cut wild spending as cruel and inhumane. 3. Appease or subsidize enemies like Iran and China. Demonize allies like Israel. Allow terrorists to attack Americans without adequate response. See Islam as either similar or superior to Christianity. Make amends to leftist governments for supposedly past toxic American international behavior. Follow the lead of international agencies like the U.N., ICC and WHO to atone for past American neocolonial and imperialist behavior. Recede to second-tier international status, befitting American decline. 4. In a multiracial democracy, redefine identity only as one’s tribal affiliation. Ensure each identity group rivals the other for victimhood and the state spoils it confers. Reboot all political issues by race and sex oppressors and oppressed. Destroy all meritocratic standards of admission, retention, promotion and commendation. 5. Recalibrate violent crime as understandable, cry-of-the-heart expressions of social justice. Ensure no bail and same-day release for arrested, repeat violent felons. Empathize with the violent killer and rapist; ignore their victims, especially if they are slain police officers. 6. Emasculate the military by using non-meritocratic standards of race, gender, and sexual orientation to determine promotion and commendation. Deliberately impugn as racists and insurrectionists the largest demographic in the military who in recent wars died at twice their numbers in the population — so that they leave or never join the military. Encourage retired high officers to slander their commander-in-chief. Cut the defense budget. Stop producing sufficient weapons, but leave billions of dollars’ worth of arms to terrorists. 7. Reinvent the justice system to indict, bankrupt, convict, jail and eliminate political opponents. Use ballot removal, impeachment, civil suits, and state and federal indictments rather than elections to defeat an opponent. Mob the homes of non-compliant Supreme Court justices, and attack them personally by name. 8. Encourage the fusion of the bureaucratic state with the electronic media to form a powerful force for political audit, surveillance, censorship and coercion. Marry the FBI to Silicon Valley and hire its contractors to warp the news and hound supposed enemies of the people. 9. Make war on affordable gasoline and natural gas. Substitute inefficient, unreliable and expensive wind and solar power, even as energy prices nearly bankrupt the middle class. 10. Marry late, but preferably not at all. Consider males toxic, especially boys. Have no children, or as few as possible. Otherwise, assure children they are entitled, and must be sheltered. Raise them to have grievances against past generations and current norms. 11. Turn world-class universities into indoctrination centers. Suspend the Bill of Rights on campuses. Train youth to graduate despising their own culture and civilization. Recruit foreign students from hostile nations to subsidize campus commissar bloat. Replace the curriculum with therapeutic propaganda. Ban the SAT/ACT and do not evaluate comparative high school GPAs. Ensure merit does not select the student body. Charge tuition higher than the rate of inflation. Bill the government when students default on their loans.

  32. I love the Browning Auto 5s, they are timeless classics and worth putting time into, the receivers are real tricky to take apart and reassemble. Years ago the first one I totally took apart to clean I could not get it back together, I had to have gunsmith Bill Demare of the old Lefever Arms up in Lee center NY show me how, there is a technique and sequence, he was good, he could do it blindfolded. These days there are probably good videos on youtube to help. Al

  33. Anyone who tries to defend the cluster F the Biden administration is causing in the states and around the world has no seat at my table. No one can be that stupid to create what's happening at the border's and around the globe, so it has to be intentionally done and that's unforgiveable. The really sad part is that most of the Democrat voters are ok with it and think America is on the right track. It's like living in an episode of the Twilight zone. SJC

  34. I was in Webster yesterday > I stopped at Dick's Store and got a big surprise . I haven't been there is a couple months . I went back to to Hunting Area and it was loaded with Kayaks . No guns , no hunting apparel , nothing hunting related . I talked to the guy back there and he sais it's the same with the Greece store . I talked to my lady friend at the front cashier and she said that's the way the Dick's stores are going . I told her that I am greatly disappointed and would be doing my business with Sportsman's Warehouse from now on . She said Dick's is losing a lot of business to Sportsman's Warehouse . I have at least $100 in Dick's gift cards .........
