  1. I've propagated Black berries by tip layering. Once a shoot has rooted and established, you can dig it up and relocate it. I have a few patches around that yard and garden that I established from wild stock growing in hedgerows this way.
  2. Potential uses: Wood chuck / prairie dog / predator hunting where you carry into a location and then sit (weather dependent) Transporting wares to a range. If no shooting bench or chair to sit on, you've got something. Be "that guy" who's always got goofy-ass toys.
  3. A survivor of that era... Can count at least a handful of deer taken from her.
  4. I can remember when the LGS would always throw in a box of ammo with your gun purchase. I also remember when looking at handguns (or any gun for that matter), the guy behind the counter would give you 3 rounds and point you in the direction of either the indoor range (if available) or the outdoor range.
  5. Does it make me a bad person that I have these bouncing around my collection? (late 80's - early 90's)
  6. About 10 years ago, my wife backed her car into mine while in our driveway. Insurance company charged us the $500 deductible times 2 (Once for each vehicle). I called BS and told them that I would cancel the claim and file a claim through homeowners' insurance instead. (Same company) They said it would be insurance fraud, so no go. Total damage was around $3500 on both vehicles. A few weeks later we had a glass claim, and then a month later a car-deer accident. Insurance provider said we were too high a risk and dropped up. My agent shopped around and got us same coverage for vehicles & homeowners at a lower annual rate. Best part is that it was through the same provider that dropped up due to high risk....
  7. I've been doing a bunch of research on DIY solar set-ups. Thinking I'm going to try that battery (or any one with BMS) with a 5- or 10-watt solar panel to keep it charged. With the solar panel in the mix, a voltage regulator on the output side is needed to keep from frying the camera.
  8. There are other grassroot attempts to separate NYC's power apart from the rest of the state. Here's another website https://www.divideny.org/
  9. Thoughts on this growth? Body lines and coat looks pretty heathy, so not sure if it's slowing him down at all. Sorry for the low-resolution, having issues downloading the high-res photos.
  10. Spypoint cell cams offer 100 free photos per month. Unlimited plan is $10-15 per month depending on if you pay monthly or 1 annual payment. https://www.spypoint.com/en/spypoint-experience/plans

  12. I started out in the cell-phone camera game a few years ago with these; I grabbed one of these to see how the Spy Point App worked. I liked it, so I have since added a bunch of full SpyPoint Cameras to the mix. Yes, they work pretty well but there are some things to be aware of. 1. They have a small ribbon cable that has an SD card shaped plug that goes into your camera's SD card slot. I had to grind out some of the plastic on the camera door so the cable wouldn't get damaged when the door closed. The cable is short, so when you mount the camera, the cell-link has to be pretty close. The cable is also easy to damage if you drop the camera / cell-link when they're connected or if a squirrel decides to chew on it. 2. Double the batteries - cell-link uses 8 AA batteries or external power pack. Then add in whatever batteries your camera uses. The cell-link will transmit its battery status but not the camera's. Once you stop getting pictures, it's good indication the camera battery is dead. 3. Can only transmit still pictures. Newer self-contained cameras will transmit video 4. The Cell-link transmits a low-resolution picture at first. You have to requests a full-res picture to be downloaded - there is a cost in the plans for the hi-res downloads. The high-res pictures are stored on a Micro SD card in the cell-link so you can pull the card to access them. The cell-link has no problem transmitting with my 10-megapixel WGI cameras. 5. Pictures and camera control is accessed via a website or an app for your phone (both Apple and Android). The photos are transmitted and stored on the website. You get a notification from the app that new pictures have been received. It's not an SMS-based text message. You can download the low-res photos from the website, or pull the original photos from the card in the Spy-link 6. Cell-coverage; your mileage may vary. On my hunting property, I can get anywhere from 100% signal quality down to almost 0. When I purchased the cell-links, I didn't have a choice of cell-carriers to choose from. Honestly have no idea where my devices are getting their signal from.
