  1. We took some way back this is what's left. How much do you want? Yes both roundup ready. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  2. Been busy. We filled pre-orders but ended up with some extra. Have approximately 8 bags of herbicide resistant 111 day corn and 9 bags of herbicide resistant soybeans left. First come first served until it's gone. Message me if interested and anywhere near the area of Rensselaer, Warren, Washington, or Saratoga counties. Seed is $20 per bag and to be left standing for wildlife consumption in lieu of harvesting. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  3. Congrats on the sale Moog. There enough room in the new place to fling arrows during colder months? Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  4. SOB! When did Scott's dump you as a prostaffer?! This world is circling to bowl more than I thought. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  5. I've never seen an actual game played. I'm caulking it up to their only current use being a fan of the Ranch Fairy showing up to play darts at a local drinking establishment. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  6. I seem to get very close to same measurements so far. When battery gets low on the fake it starts reading funny. Didn't really get screwed just isn't the real thing you thought you were buying. You paid 60 for a 60 dollar or less caliper. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  7. Fake. If you look at the signature and rest of it, it's all photocopied/printed not actually signed with a pen. Looks like we have same knockoff. Pic for reference. Real one on right and fake on left. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  8. Could be knockoffs. Which are what they are. I bought a pair off ebay and they were. Also have a legit pair that are cert and calibrated. Battery already in it? 0.0005" digit small? Battery lr44 or something other than sr44? QC signatures on paperwork printed and not signed? Still testing both side by side. So can't weigh in just yet. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  9. We don't use traps. They cost money and one would eventually get misplaced and left with hay grown up around it. One hit from the discbine would be bad for both. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  10. Typically hill over looking them or keep to the edge of cover. Nothing fancy. Bring a thermocell for the possible wait. I typically just walk and peak at certain spots glassing on the move. If youre on a knoll silhouetted then keep the sun at your back. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  11. They eat in cycles just like deer and other stuff. First thing in AM, around noon, and later evening before sunset. All depends on if something scares them back to the hole or inclement weather. If they bust you and run back into the hole, move to a different spot and sit there for half hour. They'll come back out but unless you can pick off with a head shot be patient and they work back out away from the hole. Standing up is best shot. Otherwise they stretch out and hug pretty tight to the ground. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  12. No idea. people who eat them swear they're delicious. I can't imagine they'd be that bad only probably eating alfalfa and hay grasses. When I shoot them I typically toss them into cover so ground dwelling predators like fox, yote, etc can find them. Figure it's one less meal they're hunting fawns for. Often they have flies around them, have shit themselves on impact, and often stink a little. I've always passed. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  13. They love places they really have no business being under. I don't seek them out unless they're under things in the barn yard or in an ag field. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  14. For chucks with this gun.... head shot was like 310 yards. Longest that wasn't a head shot was I think 426 yards across a valley. I haven't bothered to keep track but do use a range finder almost all the time if I'm past my 200 yard zero. I've shot other static targets that aren't animals out further. 60gr Vmax bullets anchor them pretty good even that far out. They don't move a deer vital size steel plate at 500 yards much at all though. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  15. Years ago I bought a Savage Model 12 varmint rifle in 223 Rem to hunt woodchucks on the farm. A teacher came around here and there to hunt them. He peaked my interest and got me into it. We had piles of them and they were making a mess of the farm that's mostly hay fields. Numbers dropped off pretty hard after shooting 80+ each year. I still get a small number though. Yesterday I got the first one of the season. A couple more active holes with young ones I think but might have to put a trail cam on the hole to see what their feeding pattern is. Don't seem to be out when I'm there. Gun still shoots lazer beams with Black Hills loaded 60gr Hornady Vmax ammo. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  16. It's been years since I've hunted ruffled grouse. Last time I did I ate it. Even experimented by cooking it right along side store bought chicken breast in a pan on the stove. It was pretty easy to get close to but doesn't seem to be many around. Last time I saw one I let it go. Came to full draw on it while bowhunting for deer. He was fluffed up looking to fight the world walking back and forth under my stand at 15 yards. Let down and watched him for longer than I taught he'd stick around.

  17. Looks good Biz. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  18. Nice buck. Congrats. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  19. As an engineer I keep a harbor freight tape measure for when someone forgets theirs and needs to do some work field work. Nobody ever complains. Lol Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  20. My trip was not as fun as golf. Engineering for Newport naval station. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  21. I think the most important thing is to buy a good pin gauge set so you know they don't have run out with use. Same as I have a weight check set for scale. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  22. I found them on a work trip when they were still brewing in a "tilted" old red barn about falling over. Off the beaten path but they were already starting construction on a bigger barn/building back up on the hill (where they are now). Here in NY capital region's best brewery (Fiden's Brewing Co) is basically running out of a warehouse tenant space. No place to really drink there either. Pretty far down in Google search with bigger mediocre breweries ahead out it. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  23. Not even close. That center one with SW sauce, avacado, and bacon was awesome. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  24. Any night sights I have are SIGLITE so that doesn't help. I'd definitely go with smallest you can comfortably see. Eyes wont get any better but for hunting and range you can only shoot bigger dots so well. Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
  25. How is it still costing you that much? Cases? Sent from my SM-G781V using Tapatalk
