  1. So True

    Here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about people who live in Upstate New York... Forget Rednecks.... If someone in a Home Depot store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you live in Upstate New York. If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you live in Upstate New York. If Vacation means going anywhere south of New York City for the weekend, you live in Upstate New York. If you measure distance in hours, you live in Upstate New York. If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you live in Upstate New York. If you have switched from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day and back again, you live in Upstate New York. If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in Upstate New York. If you install security lights on your house and garage but leave both unlocked, you live in Upstate New York. If you carry jumpers in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you live in Upstate New York. If you design your kid's Halloween costume to fit over a snowsuit, you live in Upstate New York. If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you live in Upstate New York. If driving is better in the winter because the potholes are filled with snow, you live in Upstate New York. If you know all 4 seasons: almost winter, winter, still winter and road construction, you live in Upstate New York. If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in Upstate New York. If you find 10 degrees 'a little chilly', you live in Upstate New York. If there's a Dunkin Donuts on every corner, you live in Upstate New York. If you think everyone else has a funny accent, you live in Upstate New York. If you actually understand these jokes, and forward them to all your Upstate New York friends, you live or have lived in Upstate New York.

  7. TGE PASSING OF A LEGEND

    Whitetail Institute of North America added 2 new photos. 18 hrs · It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Charles Alsheimer. Charlie as he preferred to be called was a legend in the hunting industry but even more importantly, he was a man of Faith who shared his Faith with hundreds of thousands. VP of the Whitetail Institute, Steve Scott wrote this, The news of Charlie's death hit me hard. Real hard! I had just talked to him on December 19, 2017 and thanked him for a personal letter he sent me the week before. I told him, it was the best Christmas gift I have ever received and I meant it. He was in great spirits. There are so many things I want to say about Charlie that it's tough to get my thoughts together. It was an HONOR to call him a friend. He was a mentor. He was a class act in every way. He was a Patriot who loved our country. He was a legend in the hunting industry. He was a huge asset to the Whitetail Institute as well as the entire hunting industry and the world in general. His writing and photography skills were phenomenal. I could go on and on. With all of his many accomplishments and accolades for the things he did, I'll miss him most for the MAN HE WAS. He was one of the best men I have ever known. Not only for his accomplishments but even more so for the Faith he lived and the way he loved our Lord. He affected me over these past 25+ years in so many positive ways but our discussions about Faith is # 1. That's what I'm going to remember. I also know that he helped lead 100's if not 1000's of others to a relationship with Jesus Christ. What a tremendous mark to leave. Sometimes when people pass away, we're not 100% sure what their after-life will be. There is ZER0 doubt what Charlie's after-life will be. He will have a seat at the head table right next to our Lord and my Mom. He will hear those words we all want to hear at the Pearly Gates, "Well done, good and faithful servant." Rest In Peace my friend! I love you and I'll miss you. READING HIS STORIES OPENED UP MY EYES AS TO DEER BEHAVIOR REST IN PEACE CHARLIE ...... 24 Comments 43 Shares

    DEC NEWS ANOTHER CHANCE TO HUNT Late Season Deer Hunting Opportunities January Deer Hunting Opportunities in Central New York From January 13-31, 2018, there will be an antlerless deer season open in the Deer Management Focus Area (DMFA) in Tompkins County. To participate, hunters must register with the DMFA Program and download a permit, carcass tags and a hunting activity log from the DMFA web page. Registered hunters may take up to two antlerless deer per day using any hunting implement that is legal during any other deer season at the site where they are hunting. The 60,000-acre DMFA was created in 2012 to help communities in the Ithaca area address problems caused by deer overabundance. It allows harvest of up to two antlerless deer per day throughout all the general deer hunting seasons, in addition to the January DMFA season. Hunters must carry a DMFA permit and DMFA carcass tags while they are hunting during the January season. They must also record their DMFA deer hunting activity and harvests on their hunting activity log and submit it to DEC by February 7. Additional information, including DMFA boundary descriptions and a printable map, is available on the DEC website. Special Seasons in Suffolk County, Long Island The regular (bowhunting) deer season in Suffolk County runs through January 31. The 2018 firearms deer season in Suffolk County will begin January 7 through January 31, including weekends. Town permits are now only required in the towns of Southampton, Islip, and Smithtown. For those who missed the lottery to hunt for deer on DEC-managed lands during the firearms season, we will take reservations for unclaimed spots between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on December 22, 26-31 and between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM on weekdays from January 7-31. Hunters may only make one reservation. For more information on reservation procedures and to see which DEC-managed lands are available for firearms deer hunting, please visit our website. For regulations, places to hunt, and more information, please visit DEC's Hunting on Long Island webpage or contact the DEC Region 1 Wildlife Office at (631) 444
  9. BEWARE OF SAVAGE 10 ML

    v If you have a problem understanding the quote try reading it again Also I don't post much because of forum members like yourself ...and in the future I won't.
  10. BEWARE OF SAVAGE 10 ML

    In Palatka’s case, a federal magistrate in 2015 sanctioned the company for a “purposeful record of obfuscation” that included falsely claiming that it was aware of only two prior explosions while withholding information that showed otherwise. The company acknowledged in Hansen’s case that it received 45 legal claims related to burst or split barrels dating to 2004. Hansen’s lawyers say documents show Savage Arms created a special “muzzleloader return team” and faced hundreds of warranty and service claims. First of all notice there were 45 claims not 2-4 as you claim in your rant which I suppose was directed at me . I take no offense at your name calling because you mean nothing to me ! My intent was to make others aware of this problem if they had one of these guns so a mistake wouldn't be made in loading this particular muzzyloader thus avoiding injury to themselves or others . Maybe too much kool aide tonight caused your outburst and if it did a word of caution ...LAY OFF IT !! You sound like an angry person and should relax a bit . Now take a deep breath and chill.....
  11. BEWARE OF SAVAGE 10 ML

    Well, the article I read was from Dec 6 2017. So it really isn't that old maybe you knew about it but I didn't and some others may have not known as well. I posted it because I wouldn't want to buy a muzzy that could explode because of a failure with the barrel and thought others might like the info.
  12. BEWARE OF SAVAGE 10 ML

    read it yesterday don't have link look it up Savage Arms Under Fire For Exploding Barrels - Bearing Arms try this
  13. BEWARE OF SAVAGE 10 ML
