  1. Not bragging, it was a good year. About 16 hours in NY and PA. 2 buck and 1 doe.
  2. Big thread on this at HuntingPA.com. https://www.huntingpa.com/forums/20-general-hunting-forum/302441-animal-abuse.html
  3. Barnes TSX, 165 gr. They haven't failed me yet!
  4. Gotta agree, 20 years ago climber and hang-ons. Now it is ladderstands for me. I mostly hunt my own property, so it isn't any big deal. I have 4 of them set up and use the one that is best for the condition the days I hunt.
  5. Maybe a small oil leak that drips on the hot exhaust. I have a mower that did that. Just an occasional puff of oil smoke. It was the valve cover gasket that had a small leak that a drop or two would drop onto the muffler, which was just below the valve cover.
  6. Put the feeder out last Friday after one was sitting on the hanger. Seen one about 2-1/2 weeks ago, just never got the feeder out til now.

    Congrats to him! Did they shoot the hat for him?
  8. Pattern the gun with several different types of ammo. Some loads pattern tighter than others. You may not need another choke. If you do try a tighter choke, again try different and ammo and see which is best. Extended or flush, your choice.
  9. The annual population explosion of potholes. And there seems to be a bumper crop of them this year!
  10. I believe it was Stalin who said something like "If we erase the past we can determine the future".
  11. Congrats to your son and yourself. I know the feeling. A scout doesn't make Eagle without support of his family and friends. It says a lot to his drive and character. Every scout who makes Eagle has an air of confidence and accomplishment that will follow them through the rest of their life!
  12. Feel proud! I've been through it 4 times with the family (2 daughters - USAF, 1 daughter - Army, 1 son - Army). Was proud of each. The Service makes them a person you would never think they would be. Thank you and your son!
  13. Sounds great, but I am sure the cows would make short work of anything I planted!!!
  14. It won't hurt to check in. A year is a short time for some work, but he should have an answer as to where things stand by now. If you ever worked in the taxidermy business you would have a better understanding of how things go. Some folks used to call asking how much longer their mounts were going take after just a month or two. As was said earlier, good work takes time. That is usually because good work is in high demand and lots of people will be using that taxidermist.
  15. -9 at 7 a.m. here on the Chautauqua Ridge this morning.
