  1. Thank you and good luck fishing! Any hardwater fishing up north?
  2. Thank you 3” Thank you...3”
  3. So...I’ve got a Remington 870, and a new choke that I haven’t patterned. F&S isn’t doin curbside ammo. Gunbroker isn’t getting back to me. If you’ve got some ammo I’d happy buy some from you.
  4. Everyone probably has there own opinions of gun broker based on experiences they’ve had. Mine thus far have been seamless, all with different sellers. You’ve got the right idea, look for lots of positive reviews.
  5. I called American Traders, they only had 3 1/2’s if anyone needs those.
  6. same problem here, no ammo Walmart’s shelves are empty and my gun club closed so I couldn’t pattern it if I had it... update...I lied, just called field and stream in Latham, NY. There doing curb inside pick up. Just gotta get someone to answer the phone
  7. Oh Crap...what Can of worms have I opened
  8. I’m am so putting that in my arsenal
  9. Basing my response to this post with the assumption that it’s intent and audience is related to the COVID-19 pandemic, how much game is really afield to be poached? I’m thinking if this pandemic really got ahold and there was limited supply, how long could any population of game animal hold out against the 20 million residents of New York? Is Hoyt vs, Matthews equal to Ford vs Chevy here?
  10. On a side note, time to check in. I’ve picked up the following: Carlsons longboard choke: Came Sunday, still need to pattern. Ammo at Walmart’s gone, need to stop at a real gun shop. Camo Gloves/mask. Need some opinions on: Backpack: I’ve seen some dedicated turkey backpacks with seats etc. are these useful vs. a normal backpack? Boots: really on the fence here. I’ve been running muck boots for a while now, but this last ice fishing season the “give” in these boots has really started to bother me on long distance walks. Anyone have an opinion on a muck boot style vs. a laced hiking boot? as always thanks in advance!
  11. Reeltime, Thank you for taking the time to write that up, very appreciated. I will read it many times over! A question for all, do you scout at night ahead of a hunt to see where turkeys roust?
  12. Being absolutely new, like have yet too..turkey hunt. In my mind turkey hunting has always looked wooded and I’m unsure how any real distance would be achievable. Again, no practical application here.
  13. Idk, I think times have changed and have been relatively uneventful or at least nothing has caused a long term impact to disrupt life. Overall, COVID-19 could be a short term impact and be old news by the fall. Even in my life time, being born in the late 70’s has there been any long term events that could condition a generation, doubly so from us generation X’ers or Millennials? The only reason I think my home is as prepped as we are for the short term, would be to look at it from a hobby approach i.e things that have been important to me. I’ve always needed to be busy, year round...preferably outdoors. Small motors have alway fascinated me...air, fuel & fire. I’m cheap and like to stretch my money. I could do a deep dive on buying used, but I’ll save everyone the anguish. I have TREMENDOUS respect for tools, knowing how to use them and maintain them. Keeping some extra canned good and non-perishables around just makes sense. My grandmother used to can...everything. I’ve done a bit of canning myself, but could expand easily. Having a fireplace or even better have a wood stove, as we do now. I take care of my neighbors. I don’t wear earbuds solely to avoid conversation. I feel like I could go on and on. I’m 42 years old now, everything I’ve mentioned above has been part of my life time investment. I’m still learnings. My next generation will be my only legacy. If the COVID-19 is your day one, then the lesson starts today. Honestly, when things started getting nutsie, I picked up an extra 50 lbs of dog food, 2 extra lbs coffee and 5 extra gallons of gas. I’m sure there’s other odds and ends. I didn’t run out and fill my fridge/freezer with perishable food goods, didn’t buy any OTC medicines, didn’t buy the last box of ammo at Walmart, didn’t panic, didn’t t clear a shelf. I had the choice to stop and think, do we need this or does someone need it more? However, I’ve alway thought observing other fulfill these needs was a good temperature check.
  14. Great video, thanks for sharing there’s a clear distinction between the sound in each of those calls. Not sure I’ve ever picked up on that before. Could be the having multiple calls in the same video. I’ve read some about being a good caller. Would you have a recommendation for a call type, mouth, slate, box etc for a new caller. Also, what about the frequency of calling or volume? Is your YouTube name the same as here?
