  1. It ran decent last week a little yesterday looking forward to this supposed warmer weather coming.
  2. In my garage lol. Like I said I've never scored one myself, and again green gross. He nets much lower not symmetrical at all. I used this http://www.anycalculator.com/deerscorecalculator.html Taken with rifle so no point in having it officially scored too small to bother. Yeah I think it's the coolest part. His body is what was impressive tall and overall large like meeting a pro football player the base of his neck was 38" around if remember correctly.
  3. Nice job on the lift. I hoard scrap steel just because it's always getting more expensive and when a project comes up it's a little to no cost. And I don't have to order it and go get it.
  4. Riding mullyville there are almost always moose tracks on the trails. First moose I saw was as a kid in the fields on rt67 right before middleline. Recently I have seen them around lake George.
  5. He weighed 244lbs with the Mrs holding his antler off the floor of the garage. Shot an inch above heart and he dropped instantly thought I missed lol. A "rough" (Ive never scored a deer before) green gross score of 154.
  6. A neighbor is having logging and clearing done to what would be considered "old growth" by today's standards. Rings are not like a phone book but are tight and most of it is veneer. There is probably 10 acers of condensed oak that is on average bigger than shown is the video. The growth is also part of my property with a wind storm that brought down several large red oaks a few over 40 inch diameter last fall. With lumber prices I'm surprised the logger hasn't asked about logging yet. https://youtu.be/zcLQz-oR6sw Tom wesseles is a commie but has a good video series on new England forests and identifying old growth which I also have a small area of true old growth.
  7. If possible a dedicated snow tire is ideal. I've plowed with different truck and tire combinations and blizzaks were amazing....it's like a turf tire vs ag When used seasonally they will last for years. Even a good all season is better than a mud tires. Mud tires and snow tires are designed oppositely. Snow tires hold snow in the tread and sipes, mud tires(are supposed) clean out.
  8. Its not brand specific, it's the front solid axle.... Jeeps for example can do it too. Dodge is known for it due to poor design poor components. Ford does it too when they wear. Every brand has hit or misses, from snowmobiles to lawnmowers...first year vehicles usually have their share of recalls, some were just bad ideas. Chevy and toyota have the highest resale value for a reason. Even names known to most people as the best have their issues, in their flagship vehicles. Honda's cr-vs all wheel drive system fails, they finally fixed it...issues with accord transmissions.... Manufacturers get deceptive with recalls too....for example fords transmission not going into park or falling out of park and running the owner over gets "fixed" (or atleast they try to over and over) while they fix a seat switch that will set you on fire gets "fixed" too...these are called batch recalls... so they only get listed as having one recall while having many issues. Chevy motors power our world, most of the boat market, hotrodders(ls swap) ski lifts(double chair gore mountain) the list goes on and on.... parts are everywhere and they are considered bullet proof. They are even fords most favorite engine swap.
  9. Sounded like an older 3spd w/od(80- or 60e) being a 16'Could be a solonoid, or numerous tsb's like fluid flush due to moisture build up etc could fix it.
  10. What make model? Sounds like the 3rd gear clutch pack is gone. Rebuild or replacement.
  11. Even if they steal the election with a corrupt Biden win, they have Harris has vp so if Mr c'mon man goes down they still win.
  12. Mrgunsngear had a breakdown of the lefts insane unconstitutional plan. Just in 2020 there were over 2 million ARs sold.
  13. Not familiar with the finger lakes area as far as pricing, but it seems to me to be way too much. We've been looking(to possibly sell and buy or just keep and buy) and the china virus and riots have jacked the market. Houses are going for 40% more over asking. We made an offer at 30k over asking and lost it, a dumpy house with land. I doubt a cidiot is going to buy a unimproved place like that, but there is little inventory so someone else might. Others are spot on with value and access- utilities. I had my land assessed and road frontage that can be broken into smaller lots is worth alot more(7 times more) than larger less accessible acreage. I'd offer less than half in today's market... 50k( more like 35k in his instance?) most could easily finance and pay off quickly like a truck. Like someone else said have your agent do an assessment. You will probably be surprised how little it's assessed for. Remember just because you see things listed at a certain price doesn't mean they sell at that price. I think alot of people (sellers)are taking advantage of the market right now. It's grown frustrating looking, when something comes up by the time we schedule an appointment it's sold. After looking and looking we are probably going to wait a year. Good luck don't let any emotions over rule your logic when making a purchase!
