  1. Try to get hold of a tracking dog. If it is down a dog will find it.
  2. Vacuum packing is hands down the way to go. Depending on how much you use it, just get another one. If you do a lot, consider something made for high use. I have a Weston that we use for packing the chickens we sell at the farm. It has to be about 10 years old and has sealed thousands of bags. Only replaced the seals a couple times with no other issues.
  3. Agreed, as long as you do your part, I see no problem. I know several who have used the .22-250 and were pretty impressed with the result.
  4. First bats, now deer. Maybe they will get herd immunity! I even seen an article about a tiger in some zoo that has it.
  5. The honda marine website used to have a page that you could put the s/n in it gave the year.
  6. Welcome to life of a farmer! There aren't many years that everything goes right, or actually any years that everything goes right! I've had to hay cows in late July because of no rain and have had them nearly destroy the pastures because of too much rain. There have been years where planting was late because it is too wet and years that planting never took off because it is too dry. It's just the way farming is, you keep doing it not because it is easy, you do it because it is part of your way of life.
  7. You will need both. The license covers general fishing, but you need the trout stamp for trout fishing. Same way for Lake Erie and its tribs. You need a license and a Lake Erie stamp.
  8. I use all copper, my choice. I've been loading the Barnes bullets for deer for several years in 30.06. They are great in the .06, but, as was stated earlier, some rifles don't have the twist rate for them. That could lead to some testing different bullet weights to get one that works, and that could get pricey and even to the point of not being able to find the ammo to figure it out. This isn't the time for this. Bullets are in demand and scarce in some cases. If they plan on doing this it could lead to a bigger lack of hunters in the field. You can't shoot if you don't have ammo!
  9. I would say it isn't a calf.
  10. I guess I didn't realize that NYB members had priority over other hunters. I certainly wouldn't want to harvest one of "their bucks" off my own property!
  11. Say what you want about crossbows. I can't shoot a bow anymore. Nothing to do with drawing it back, but with tremors. I can't hold a bow still enough to hit broadside of a barn. A crossbow would be the only way for me to hunt the full archery season in NY. All my archery hunting is now in PA, with a crossbow. So go ahead and sit on your high horse and complain about crossbows, I would love to be able to hunt the whole archery season in NY again! I don't wish anything bad on anybody, but if you couldn't hunt with a verticle you would probably change your tune.
  12. Very cool. I seen an albino robin about 20 years back. That was a nice surprise to see.
  13. Go for it. I plan on retiring next year, but I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up!
  14. Is it loose gravel or packed? Mine is (not 500') packed gravel. I have a snow blower on the tractor. I just tilt it back until there is a good base. A $2500 snow blower is $25K less than paving. To me the issue would be how much of a slope is on the driveway. Plowed or blown you will probably end up with packed snow that will turn to ice. Not fun driving on then!
