    New TC Bone Collector from Muzzleloaders.com

    $830 - I didn't get the camo version - I am fine with the black and nickel.
  3. Hi Everyone, I just purchased a TC Bone Collector with a Leuphold Scope as a package from www.muzzle-loaders.com . I had some bad expereince with my CVA Pro Optima so decided to try something new. After alot of research it looks like a great package with a Leuphold scope for the price. The sales rep their was very helpful as well. Great expereince all around!! Just wanted to pass on some positive feedback if you are interested in a muzzleloader - if you are their options and prices can't be beat.

    WNYBuckHunter - per our discussion attached is a better picture of the length of the beard. Tough to take those pictures to get the beard to line up on the tape ... maybe I need to take up photography instead of hunting ... nah!!

    Anyone ever stain antlers?

    Agree - just experiemnt with lighter and then darken it up - you can get them to macth up pretty good.

    Definitely a tough season for me this year but went after a bird today that I missed earlier in the year. Connected with him at 8:30 this morning. Weighed almost 20lbs, 8.5” beard and 1 inch spurs. Tough to judge beards this year ... must be loosing my touch or sight- HA!! With all of the snow there weren’t a whole lot of birds with long beards and the frigid temps didn’t help that we had by the lake. Tom population seemed to be down as well but the bonus today was two heaping handfuls of Morels!!! Not sure which I was more excited about = the turkey or the morels – no complaints though!! Actually it is probably getting to sleep in again.

    Weird season so far but shot this guy this morning at 5:40AM. In my book it was PERFECT turkey hunting weather, foggy, thunder roling in and no rain - the perfect mix for gobbles without getting wet. I thought he was a bit bigger and older but I am happy nonethless. It was a cool hunt and one of my shortest - I shot him at 5:40AM - although I have been out almost everyday so in that sense it has been a long season. 20lbs / 3/4" spurs and 9.5" beard.

    Congrats. That beard looks much longer but then again I have passed on ones I should have probably shot so I pretty much suck at sizing up birds. Congrats again on a nice bird.

    2014 Planned Out of State Hunts

    Ha!! I was the same way - in fact college was rough in the beginning because during the fall I was out in the woods more than in class and it didn't work out well. Finally I made my mind up and sacrificed the next couple years, got great grades, which landed a great job, and then went crazy again. Think of it this way, a few years of sacrifice for the rest of your life to enjoy. Get the grades, get the job, work hard and then everything will follow. You are doing the right thing. I use to get the same advice from my elders - the good thing is you have many years to plan out and do it right - just let it be the fuel. I hunt in Ohio once an awhile. It is nice to get away if you tag out here - NY is getting better every year though. There are some good bucks right here in this state. That is why it would be hard for me to ever pay for a whitetail hunt. If I were to go on one it would probably be to chase the Saskatchewan monsters some day.

    2014 Planned Out of State Hunts

    Good luck guys, sounds like some interesting hunts planned. Yes Pygmy, but hey you only live once and the hunts are not getting any cheaper. It sounds like you have had some adventures yourself. I am always up for advice - I will PM you. BizROworld - Yes, I would prefer snow and did look into Alberta and BC but they have a hefty price tag. I am leaning towards Montana, Wyoming or Colorado which sem more reasonable and still have good size cats. Good luck on your hunt to Wyoming. Snake Boots and gear for Florida are packed. I was on the fence on Rio/Merriam turkey hunt in Nebraska - 3 days hunting and about $2000 for 2 birds which includes liscense, driving out there, lodging and guide but couldn't find anyone interested to share the drive - so will probably wait until next year.
