  1. yea not sure what other branches are doing out your way. things are pretty quiet lately. a lot of work to get content out there to reach people. i'm sure Culver and a couple others are still kicking around doing what they can though.
  2. have been in the past but not this time. well nobody that's active that i know is on here anyway.
  3. great advice given already. I'd add that deer select places to hold up over winter not just for food but for other things like thermal cover. placing food for them in a place without these things might persuade them to stay close to this food in less than idea habitat versus where they otherwise would be much better off.
  4. i've shot Eley Sport, Aguila Standard Velocity Target, CCI Chootem, CCI Minimags, CCI Standard, and CCI AR Tactical out of my Ruger MarkIII bullseye pistol. I shoots the CCI Tactical within a single ragged hole well within the 10 ring on a Slow Fire NRA B-2 target. others open up a little. I shoot the other standard velocity stuff because it's less recoil and not high velocity. helps me get back on target better. so it's a trade off.
  5. nice! so I'm not fire forming or creating a cartridge from another. I have been contemplating getting a benchsource for more consistent annealing. i would be doing so just for longer life brass and better accuracy from more consistent reloads. the water bath is to make sure youre not annealing too far down past the neck i thought. brass being brass quenching i wouldn't think is necessary. you're not hardening the case back up. maybe could see it if you stop the heating and associated change in the metal. brass heats and cools pretty quick.
  6. Thanks to those who've purchased tickets. Still many available so odds of winning are good. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  7. Passed up at least 7 bucks. Not live right now but some photos from the weekend opener. One trail cam pic I let walk Sunday evening. Some others I never got pics of because I was prepped and ready hearing them coming in pushing doe. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  8. idk how many deer. a lot. Saturday and Sunday I let at least 7 bucks walk in total. all between 1.5 to 2.5 years old. closest was directly under climber at my one set that was only 8ft off the ground. many others within chip shot bow range. guess i haven't converted to the rifle hunting mindset quite yet.
  9. i've always used cheaper alkalines until the temps get really cold. then some cameras I've had seem to do better with lithiums.
  10. Mature buck spotted multiple times in last few days. Hunting a travel corridor between the locations. We'll see. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  11. Rutcation day today. Spike pushing 3 doe so far. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  12. I irony is burmjohn back in the day hijacked me from another hunting forum to come here. Hahaha Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  13. oh no.... private single story office bldg we own that borders part of the Albany Pine Bush Preserve. I've had deer walk across the lawn out my window and head right into the woods. A lot of hiking and activity this time of the hunting season on the weekends though. Best to hunt during the week or inclement weather with less people around. Otherwise deer hole up in adjacent inaccessible strips of cover/woods.
  14. that's a respectable, nice 2.5 or 3.5 year old buck depending on what area of the state you're in! congrats! Glad you found him.
  15. looks like a decent hit to be uneffected unless you got up into the backstrap without hitting spine or arteries. were'd you think you hit him and the path of the arrow?
