    Liquid calcium for food plots?

    I'm not sure where your land is located. I've use McDowell & Walker in Afton. They will come to your land and spread lime as per the amounts needed. Very friendly people and reasonable cost. Making one phone call sure beats shoveling and spreading lime all weekend.

    DEC Looking For Input

    When I first read your reply quickly, I thought you were suggesting that a manufacturer produce an over / under crossbow. Now that would be awesome to use. Maybe I should patent a design. I'm sure that would make the traditionalists go crazy too.

    Ten Point Poached Close To Our Property

    Poachers are the lowest form of life. I would suggest adding a new topic on this forum with convicted poacher's names published for all to see, just as newspapers do. This would be public information from the courts and the forum would not be held legally responsible for libel or slander.

    Confrontation with another Hunter

    Everyone has the right to Public Land. You paid for it through your tax dollars. I had the same issue when duck hunting a few years ago. I got to my spot on Public Land an hour before sunrise. Another hunter came along 30 minutes later and told me that I had to leave and that he was hunting there. He also let me know that he was an off duty police officer in that town. I told him that his occupation did not give him any additional rights than me and that he was trying to intimidate me into moving to another area. "voices getting extremely loud" I also asked for his badge # and that I was going to have a talk with his chief. He turned around and left. The morning went well after shooting many ducks

    Live Every Day Like it's Your Last

    I'm glad to hear that you are doing better. You still have many hunting seasons to enjoy.
  8. I recently calculated all the costs to plant my food plots. Considering the tractor, implements, chainsaw, dozer, barn, lime, fertilizer, seed and land purchase, I must be out of my mind. I'm thinking of going back to basics and hunt as I did when I was younger. I also think that I shot just as many deer every year. This food plot thing is getting out of hand! Although it is nice to sit back and look at the fruits of your labor and watch the deer and turkeys benefiting from all the hard work. Has anyone ever added up the costs of your plots?

    flooded barassicas

    I had the same issue this year in my turnip plot. The seeds germinated about a month ago then we had all of that heavy rain. Two weeks later there was hardly a sprout to be found. I replanted this past weekend with winter wheat and a splash of turnips. Hope this turns out well. My other plots are doing fine though, winter oats, rye and clover. I guess turnips will not tolerate wet soils.
  10. Minus 30 sitting in a lock on tree stand from before sunup to after sun down in Saskatchewan. I'm here to tell everyone that Heater Body Suits are awesome. You know it's cold when your yellow bottle freezes in under a minute after adding to it.

    New Mexico Elk Hunt

    Arriving a few days early is a good idea. You can be in the best shape of your life at our elevation in New York and feel lousy when you start hunting those elevations in NM. Your body needs to acclimate to the higher altitude. I've hunted up to 11 k many times for elk and mountain goats. Just take your time and don't overdue it the first couple of days and you will do just fine. Don't let your guide push you too hard early in the hunt. Unfortunately you will be able to run up and down those mountains when the hunt is over and you're sitting in the jet on your way home. Good luck, post pictures

    Buck rubbing already?

    My guess it is last year's rub also. I've never seen porcupines chew on striped maple before, however bucks love to rub on them.
  15. Yeah, I love the humpback too. I'm actually thinking of buying one the new and improved models Browning recently came out with. Want to return to my youth and get back into duck and goose hunting again.
