    Snort wheeze .. o my

    This was my teen daughter's first season to carry a rifle and we had a similar encounter and she said after it actually gave her the chills. It was so loud and unmistakable that I'm sure it will be in her hunting stories for years to come.

    Patching LaCrosse boots question

    Scuff the area up lightly with some fine sand paper before you patch and it may adhere better...

    What would an off-grid cabin like this cost?

    We built ours in the Adirondack Park, check any local/state reg's closely before building or buying any land. We have 8 acres that adjoins state land and opted for a hard build rather than a camper as moisture is a real issue in sub freezing weather inside a propane heated camper. I have basic building skills and as a family we did all the work ourselves with three pre-teen's and only hired local help with the roofing for a day. It took us less than 40 days of actual work to have it completed and we can upgrade as the future allows (additional storage/toilet). We utilize an outhouse and have no running water currently. We have a high water table on the land and hope to put a battery pump inside a dug well for a toilet/septic and shower installed in a small addition at some point. But for now we obtain fresh potable water from a local spring using covered 5 gallon pails with the UTV as transportation on a semi-daily basis. We have propane lights, propane fridge and run off a 100 lb. bulk tank year around, we heat with a wood stove and are currently not insulated. The building is 12 x 24 with a 4' wall upstairs and a steep roof for added head room and snow shedding ability. We have a small Honda generator for things like battery charging and very rarely a window fan at night in the summer. I designed the camp myself, ordered the lumber and carried windows and supplies in as we built. It really became a "labor of love" and after hard work and lots of "camp candy" (Tylenol) we got it done and enjoy it greatly. Good luck and it's great you are planning now and buy/build once... Cost: land $ 25,000.00 Camp $ 16,000.00

    Sanctuary Counties

    This comment was made as satire, but look at this: 2 days ago - Madison County, Illinois, voters decided by a 2-to-1 margin Tuesday night that their county should be a gun sanctuary. ... “Shall Madison County become a sanctuary county for law-abiding gun owners to protect them from unconstitutional gun laws passed by the Illinois General ..

    Sanctuary Counties

    If certain cities can become "sanctuary cities" and therefore chose to not acknowledge/enforce laws regarding illegal aliens, then why can't New York counties choose the same status and become "sanctuary counties" and ignore laws regarding the SAFE act?

    The Neighbors Corn Pile

  10. This is a 2006 custom made diamond plate aluminum 8 hole dog trailer, it tows easily behind a vehicle or wheeler in the field as needed. It includes shuttered doors for inclimate weather, blower fan, 20 gallon water tank (gravity), and two top "gull wing" door storage areas. All are keyed alike for security and the trailer is in good condition. I utilized the trailer for labs that weigh up to 85 pounds and they have plenty of room, it includes rubber mats in each hole. and could be used for labs or hounds nicely. It will require a 12 volt deep cycle battery if one utilizes the blower fan during warm months. Located in the Glens Falls area Asking: 1500.00

    Maybe we can include "Big Foot", mountain lions in the Adirondacks, cell service in the mountains and close out with a popular one of legal vs. practical hours for hunting....

    Why cell service so bad in Adirondacks?

    Not within the "BLUE LINE".....the APA has strict regulations in place against those type of intrusions.....
