  1. I see lots of almost new sub compacts with cabs for sale around the minute the weather warms up each year. I can tell you with confidence that you do not want a cab tractor that does not have air conditioning. The heat is awesome in winter, but they are incredibly hot inside that glass globe in anything above early spring or late fall temperatures. If you want a cab, AC is absolutely required. That said, I have a cab tractor and it is really nice having comfort and protection in the cab. I’ll never go back to open station on my main tractor. There aren’t any sub compacts that I’m aware of that you can get AC from the factory. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I just ordered a couple of these...too bad they’re made in China now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I should probably clarify a bit as well. I have a stone and I’m decent with it. I have a chefs choice manual that seems “worn out” (if that can happen). My issue is not a sharp knife to field dress with, but instead I’m looking for a good way to get one back in good shape after hitting a bone or the like. Loving the info so far. Thanks!

  4. I love the knife thread and feel like I haven’t found that perfect knife yet for gutting and for processing. The thing I struggle with is sharpening. What do you guys all use for a sharpener to keep your blades tuned up? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I used to haunt them very frequently. Been meaning to get back for some time. Dave and his guys are great. Dave has always been fair to me, even when I was a young whippersnapper. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Sweet rifle! I had one on a G2 Contender in rifle format and in pistol format. The rifle kicked hard, I think I had a 21” barrel, but the aftermarket walnut stock and thick recoil pad I had on it made it ok. The pistol was a lot of fun! You didn’t want to shoot it too many times though! The .45/70 is so versatile being able to be loaded from modest to quite crazy. Those TC’s are addicting! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I’ve been using 2.5-8X36 vari-x III’s, VXIII’s, VX3’s, and VX3i’s for a long time and they’ve all been great. I’ve only recently started using VX5hd’s when I’m not being as careful on weight. The VX3 line is awesome, rock solid, and lightweight. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The auto start thing drove me crazy in my 2018 f150. You can get a small wiring “harness” that plugs in behind the switch on the dash. Super simple to install and “remembers” if the button is on or off so you don’t have to touch it each time you start it up. The only drawback is it’s pricey at about $90. https://www.autostopeliminator.com/products/2015-ford-f-150-autostop-eliminator Absolutely totally worth it in my mind and is the only “real” fix with no drawbacks.

  9. Beautiful buck! And...beautiful chestnut tree! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Beer can chicken. My first try...came out great. Credit goes to the Genny Cream Ale’s stuffed in there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Very cool for me to see this. Jack Hume (his son Richard) is my cousin. Great people. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Often times you can get get a thread protector that is no bigger diameter than the barrel, so you can still get the gas block off if needed. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for the input guys. Slay and Arrest will be pricey for that acreage, but sounds like it might be the only option for the chicory and clover. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I have two fields planted in Whitetail Institute Fusion (clover and chicory). Total is about 9 acres. I planted it last year after plowing, discing, then a cultimulcher. Prep was great, rain was not. It was ok, but grew in a bit thin. About halfway through March this year, I frost seeded it. I still have some bare spots, but I feel I need to target the weeds coming in. What can I use instead of the expensive Whitetail Institute’s Slay and Arrest to selectively kill invaders to this plot? I have a PTO sprayer. Thank you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Have that same gun. Got it for my 12th birthday. Was $74.99 at Walmart. Handed it off to a youth hunter to use last weekend. Great beginner shotgun. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
