  1. Don't quit man! Opening day is when the magic happens! Maybe one will get pushed to you. Don't sit it out, you never know how many opening days you have left.
  2. I'll be in an oak tree that borders a thicket on top of my hill. Have hunted the edge of that thicket for the last two opening days, and each time there was deer in there all day. Hopefully Grandpa's shotgun gets to speak.
  3. I snap two before loading.
  4. I have also unintentionally bought different size nips for my hawkens. Have not had an issue. As long as the hammer has enough swing to ignite the cap, it should be no problem.
  5. The first is a Traditions Deer Hunter. The stainless one is Lyman Deerstalker.
  6. Good thread WOLC. I hope to see you holding a deer soon.
  7. Got this 7 point last night. I was planning on holding out for the rut, but plans changed. Lost my Father in law suddenly on Wednesday. Only 73. My wife and him were best friends. From watching the bills every week, to constantly working on her 1974 VW bug, they were inseparable. She is devastated. So, I took the week off and spent it with her. Dealing with funeral plans, and family, and just letting her lean on me. She pushed me out the door to hunt last night for a few hours. She said I needed to do something for me, and take a breather. When this guy gave me a shot, I didn't hesitate. Thankful to have him. I don't plan on hunting much for the near future. Dad's are huge shoes to fill. I can't even come close, but I want to spend as much time with her as I can. Here I sit watching the bills, and I hate football.
  8. We got a doe yesterday. That's the exit wound. It was a broadside shot. Not sure how the arrow came out that far back. Ran 60 yards. I am not the good looking one in the picture.
  9. I went with a 30-06. No particular reason, other than I liked the feel and look of the rifle. It's a Webley Scott, topped with a Vortex 4-12x44. Thanks for all the input.
  10. You should have gotten them by now. Took about two weeks to get mine, and I think I ordered the first week of August. I'd call. 1-866-933-2257
  11. Congrats! Btw, also congrats on not drinking anymore. I didn't think life would go on after I had to quit, but here I am 7 years later, loving it.
  12. Happy birthday Bill! I would have no problem with what you propose. Why not let the turkey guys hit the woods at the same time as the small game and bowhunters? What could it harm? It's a moot point though. If it makes sense, it definitely won't happen in NY.
