  1. What is that ? Large rifle ? Last time I went to the shop I use , they had small pistol, 44 mag and a bunch of others . I paid little attention as I have no use for them .
  2. And what was you’re weekly pay back then ? Guns are cheaper today .
  3. Congrats ! I got one a few years back,when I couldn’t draw compound anymore . I just went to a shop and paid a grand for a Ten Point ,zero research. Killed some deer and coyotes,never knew I was supposed to lube the rails lol . Whatever . I may even go,out in the late season ,although I don’t need any more meat , and it seems wrong to shoot another buck and give the meat away
  4. Ya in 1972 the average weekly pay for a man was $140, guns cheaper today .
  5. In todays dollars That Remington 1100 would be close to $1000 and the mossberg pump about $450 .
  6. Three doe and a button so far . And possibly two people on lane while it was dark that was just odd
  7. I just switched too, although I don’t do all day hunts, more for layers , warm hats etc. Hunting my buddies spot tomorrow,our first hunt together this year, a north wind made the choice easy as at my spot that’s not so great .
  8. As I told my neighbor who just started hunting . “ if it sounds like a deer, it’s a squirrel, and if it sounds like a squirrel, it’s a squirrel.”
  9. I have an old picnic table and some sandbags to dial in with . Then all our practice is off hand , I can’t recall using a rest in the woods , unless leaning against a tree counts . At least half my gun deer have been from drives and pushes of some sort , and those “ rests” that come on my big ladders I remove as they get in the way of my bow .
  10. I think I’ll roll out of bed soon .Good luck to those in the woods .
  11. One pound of land o Lakes butter, $7 , may have to learn to use my mother in laws churn . She sold butter and eggs out at the road .
  12. We need a sarcasm emoji ! Which actually hurt me as ,its kinda my thing .
  13. I believe he’s saying the same thing the Full Moon guys say , more activity during the night , less during the day .
  14. The main reason I went today, was because I could tote the xbow, sitting there hoping you can draw back your compound is not an enjoyable sit .
  15. Just moved to the lee side of the woods , may not see deer here either, but it’s much more comfortable.
  16. Very strong wind ! I guess I should check the weather and not just look at highs / lows . No deer seen .
  17. It’s 61 out ! I’ll go for a bit, but that’s it till Tuesday morning when it cools off .
  18. For those who remember Rockspec ,he took a ten PT wed night ! He said Tuesday between 4-7 he saw 9 bucks with tongues hanging out .
  19. Buddy in Wayne county , two shooters and one young buck , running hard . im about to put the coffee on , 34th wedding anniversary spending the day with Mrs Nomad ,or as she prefers the Lucky Woman . Im having her wash my camo, truck, and boots, then Chimney Bluffs and Orbakers for an Empire burger , if she does a good job she can get an ice cream cone as well .
  20. Went to a stand in the thick stuff, one that used to pay off,buts been slow lately, first sit this year and last year not sure if I used it . Prior to the season I opened a path across the drainage ditch , well so did the deer ,I took the wrong one . Spent 20 minutes walking around on dry leaves and sticks , started to sweat really good too . Once up I dropped my reading glasses . Had a molar pulled last week , it broke and she worked hard for 1/2 an hour to get it out , after a few days it really hurt , I fought that for four days ,went back , dry socket, exposed bone ,close to sinus yada yada . She packed it and used stiches to hold it in place . Pain the whole sit tonight can’t talk it hurts like an electric shock through the socket . Oh and hip hurts really bad ,with each step ,should be fun dragging one out . Home now popped and oxy and poured some gin .
  21. What a cluster f#%^ getting to this stand , I only stayed because I figure the deer won’t fear someone so inept .
  22. It’s 71 here ! It was 62 at home , long walk in the sun to this stand .
  23. This is the third year they have been doing this , the farm that boarders me to the South , doesn’t so that’s one route to and from the thicket and woods that may pay off . Used to be a field here and there now they do them all it seems .
