  1. You've got some brown on there, not all white, which isn't a bad thing. I would still give him sometime. The rain/snow isn't going to help things, but you don't want to push him. Did you find much blood where you jumped him? Hopefully he'll bed down and you can recover him.
  2. I think Grampy's got the best advice on this one, looks like fat to me. What did the shot look like?
  3. I’ve always used Hoppes and never had any issues. For my ML, I use a mix of 50/50 Murphy’s Oil Soap and Windshield Washer Fluid.
  4. Great videos, I'll be subscribing!
  5. Early voting takes place in the building I work in. Yesterday the line formed an hour and a half before voting opened (noon) and when I left at 5, there was a line down the block. It never let up. My wife came and waited an hour and a half. I plan on jumping in line Thursday or Friday. Regardless of who you support, it’s nice to see people performing their civic duty.
  6. Looks real to me, I think it came out of Effingham, Illinois, about an hour north of where I'm from. I can't verify it, but the video and other trail cam pic looks real enough. The deer is obviously in distress. Probably a combine injury. Jumping deer in a cornfield, they get all kinds of crazy, and don't know which way the sound is coming from, and can't figure out which way to run. Hopefully he doesn't suffer long.
  7. Chris Stapleton’s new song is good Southern Rock jam.
  8. This is same the one I've carried for a long time, though I rarely use it.
  9. I just saw that one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Jerry Jeff Walker died. He was actually originally from Oneonta. His version of Guy Clark’s “Desperados Waiting for a Train” is one of my all time favorites. I always tear up, reminded of my late Grandfather, especially when I hear “we closed our eyes and dreamed us up a kitchen, and sang another verse to that old song”.
  10. I think that's the correct thinking, I would imagine the rifling tends to throw the shot around as it goes down the barrel. The more rifling it encounters (long gun/barrel) the more impact this would have on turbulence out of the barrel causing a super open pattern.
  11. My God, I feel like I’m listening to a “Southern Rock” playlist compiled by a Yankee
