  1. Couldn’t find the old stock market thread , so it was a vary good year, any outstanding moves or returns made this year ? Ourselves ,funds returned pretty much the index, of the 16 individual stocks I own a cumulative return of 28% with 13 winners and 3 losers , 2 of those I cut loose, kept T2 Biosystems as they have a promising sepsis treatment that I’m hoping gains traction . Biggest winner was also my largest holding, Booz Allen Hamilton with a TSR of 52% last year . About my best move involved the kids, like most just starting out in their careers, they only put enough in their 401’s to get the company match, so we gave each a check, with the stipulation that they increase their contribution by xxx per month, then dip into the “ check” if they end up short on living expenses in a given month . As I figured they never had to draw on the money, and they caught a nice almost 30% return over the year . May be why they gave us really nice presents last Christmas, we underwrote them..... Here’s to 2,020 !
  2. Aw..... auto correct strikes again ! Only found one knife and that was returned to its owner later in the day .
  3. And this is why I always check around gut piles for knives and watches .
  4. They all are scripted , staged , reshot ,everyone knows this, lying about your military background though isn’t part of the deal . American Pickers , they have a caravan of RV’s, tractor trailers and that little van the two stars are shown “ driving around “ in lol . Anything put in the van for the show, is taken right back off and put in the tractor trailer , all the items they find are pre staged , but since I like old stuff I watch it .
  5. Shot a buck that was just inside a thicket with my ML, leaned ML against tree and went after it with a handgun, due to how thick it was in there . By the time I found the deer it was pitch black , I then dragged it the wrong direction, by the time I figured out where the Hell I was , I had no idea where the gun was . Was planning on coming back the next day, but by chance I finally found it , once I got my bearings again .

    Oldest daughter really into them, I’ve had some sips of hers while out to lunch / dinner and some I found quite good, don’t ask me to name them though .
  7. I’ve shot a doe, after I climbed down to “ go “ watched three doe work the edge towards me, grabbed shotgun, that was leaning against the tree ( you do bring gun when you climb down to go don’t you ?) and dropped lead doe while pants were dropped ... A friend did the same ,only he walked a bit away from his stand to go .
  8. Used to hunt a swamp across from my main spot, cattails , dead trees with high spots around them, water knee deep on dry years, wet years forget hunting in it . From the old stands and blinds guy seemed to hunt the edge, can’t cover the whole thing from inside it, so,they set up on trails into it . Dont care for bow hunting it as there’s not really a good blood trail on standing water . To much of a hassle for me, I’d rather set up in the woods a couple hundred yards from it, same deer . blue is swamp red X stands I’ve killed bucks back in the day .
  9. Many do a para cord wrap, if it gets bloody, just strip it and rewarp with new cord . My Strider DB came with a para cord warp, it’s so tight the cord actually feels hard .
  10. Yes, registered ones are grandfathered in with all the evil, features and drop free mags of ten rounds . You could register it or modify and not register , the gun ends with you though can’t pass it on or sell it in NYS . My question is say on a routine traffic stop, they see it on say a guys back seat can they look up registered AR on the spot . I’ll have to ask the cops at the gym .
  11. Your friend has a lot of company , when the state finally released the numbers , iirc only about 4% of owners registered them . That data shows massive noncompliance with the assault weapon registration requirement. Based on an estimate from the National Shooting Sports Federation, about 1 million firearms in New York State meet the law’s assault-weapon criteria, but just 44,000 have been registered. That’s a compliance rate of about 4 percent. Capanna said that the high rate of noncompliance with the law could only be interpreted as a large-scale civil disobedience, given the high level of interest and concern about the law on the part of gun owners. “It’s not that they aren’t aware of the law,” said Capanna. “The lack of registration is a massive act of civil disobedience by gun owners statewide.”
  12. So just plant a food plot .....

    Mancave buck

    I’m happy to just saw the horns off and toss ‘Em in a pile, but if you want a rubber head for $250 knock yourself out .
  14. I’ll give you $50 , if you’ll wear them but don’t wash .
  15. That’ll make a nice home for the area mice ! I think I killed 15-20 in my one last year , sealed it up with tin and wood filler and it’s been good since, my other one had one in it yesterday , who was faster then I so he lives to, fight again . I don’t hunt out of mine much, base camp and bad weather , so maybe two or three times over eight years .

    Academy 2019

    You guys should consider Culver’s QDMA banquet, I’ve attended the last two, years , won a gun each time , Moog and I won back to back guns last year . pre sale raffle ticket package is the way to go .
  17. And special soap to shower in, wash your clothes , sprays for your outer clothes and boots , oh special gum for your breath lol
  18. Loaded with them, I was toting a 17 round semi auto .22 , every year just walking around I’ll see coyotes and or fox , so now I tote that gun . Last year three coyotes were walking the edge of a thicket , I was walking towards them on the other side of a hedgerow, I got to about 100 yards ,but no long gun .
  19. Ya, not like normal, where I’m largely disappointed lol, left them in place, swapped cards , it’s times like this I’d like more cameras . The one with the lopsided rack, ( rt is side taller ) he’s on a lot of pics, but never saw him before ,live or on cams.
  20. Card, pull ( thread in trail cam pics) , shed hunt, general walk around today . Found two turkey kill sites, a splitting wedge in a turned up corn field , one Mylar ballon .
  21. Two sets of bucks fighting , a ton of bucks, only posted a few, lots of turkeys . Really this is a small sample ,the bigger ones have not turned up on camera for the most part .
  22. Ha I don’t know , I think it’s a bit off though . We have a brand new union hall seats about 200, bar, full commercial kitchen . I can rent it for $300, hire a couple bartenders, a caterer and be out of there for a few grand , but no.... She said at my retirement party she would not want it there ! I had well over 100 at my party between booze and catered BBQ about $30 a man .
  23. You have a good memory. She’s probably not the stereotypical cpa .
