  1. 7mm-08 or a 6.5 creedmore would be my first two choices and not necessarily in that order. Both offer mid-size bullet weight with minimal recoil along with great accuracy. Another advantage is they both are readily available.
  2. Those old photos were from the good old days when the Daks actually got logged and had a healthy forest so animals had food and cover. Now much of it is baron land with mature woods and no feed. It really needs a good logging program or a good old fashioned forest fire.
  3. I hear ya, NY pizza in Canastota is good as well at Nina's in Chittenango.

  5. Mind offering up what temp you smoked that at and what internal temp you smoked to? Also, roughly how long it took? I have three in the brine right now and plan to smoke them tomorrow.
  6. This is what I was talking about.
  7. I'm doing the same as you OP, just putting together a dedicated turkey gun. One thing that I had concern with is a lot of the red dots out there have highly reflective coatings on the lenses and shine like crazy. For that reason I went with the Vortex strikefire II, with this optic you can get one of the waffle covers for the lens to mask any potential glare.
  8. When adding coolant, make sure you use the correct type. You can't mix and match them or you'll end up with jello in the cooling system. Also as stated, you likely don't have a true radiator cap, that style has been out of date for a long time. You will just need to fill your overflow to the hot or cold level based on the engine temp and run it to self purge the air out of the system.
  9. Yep, that's a giant... The buck i shot this season was 8" and was the larges that the taxidermist had ever used.
  10. Awesome deer and mount! By any chance to you remember the eye to nose measurement used for the form by any chance? Thanks for sharing!

  12. 100% correct. In reality, weather dependent it already runs to late in the year in the north. Many years that have snow a bit early the deer move out to their yards and get slaughtered on the way or in the yard.
  13. I will preface my statement to come with I am all for adjusting the legal hunting times to 30 min. before and after sunrise/sunset for big game hunting. But, trying to compare big game hunting times to waterfowl or turkey hunting times really isn't a fair comparison. The big game hunting is done with a rifle/shotgun that has lethally implications for a long ways beyond the target at hand. While the waterfowl/turkey hunting is done with birdshot that looses lethal energy much faster. With that said, the daylight available needs to be good enough to make sure that another hunter is not w
  14. I am in the Cazenovia area that is southeast of Syracuse. We are a mini tug hill with much higher elevation than areas around us.
