    Made in China insanity

    I run a small outdoor store where we have American made product sitting right next to Chinese made product (primarily kayaks). As an example the American made kayak costs $800 and the Chinese made product cost $500. The Chinese product is built just as well as the American product and outsells the American boats all day long. It costs more to produce product in the US and American consumers don't care where it's made as long as it's less expensive. If I just carried American made product I'd be out of business...

    Fishing Fanatic Wanted

    Definitely not possible. Unfortunately working in the outdoor industry is a lifestyle choice. Not a career choice...

    You're only over in Pulaski. It could be a weekend gig... Please apologize to your wife in advance for me.

    Are these moose rubs?

    Can't be 100% sure from the pic but it is more than likely. I guide in the Adks on private property. We have a healthy moose population and all of the moose rubs/scrapes are up about 6'. Don't usually see them go down that close to the ground though...

    How much to tip a guide

    Very interesting comments... As a guide I know what goes into a hunt long before the hunters arrive. It's not just what they do once you arrive. In my case, I guide in the Adirondacks but live about 2 hrs from the property. Starting in May I am there at least once if not twice a week scouting, putting out trail cams, liming and planting food plots. Tree stands, ground blinds, fuel and time all cost money. I know how many clients have to be booked in order to break even. Tips are the only real profit for most outfitters. I know that most of you guys are in a much better mood when you kill something. Hence the tips tend to be better. But the guide really doesn't work any harder when your successful (except for game care) than when you're not successful.

    Some Adk Pics

    Each year I have pics of calves also. I think hunting them is a political can of worms... But we do have quite a few on this property.
