  1. Have to agree with G-Man. Over past ~15yrs in 8F the bucks in mid to late July are pretty much at 80% of what they'll be in bow season. May grow a little more mass & a few inches of tine length. By now they are pretty much what they'll be in the fall, less velvet covering. Not to say this "rule of thumb" may not be different in other areas of NYS.
  2. Pretty ingenious system. Definitely less pucker.
  3. Sometimes (esp small towns) when an inspector comes for an inspection, if they know the electrician, carpenter, plumber, etc it could end up merely a courtesy visit. On the other end of the spectrum, I'd unknowingly hired a lackadaisical roofer who overlooked getting a bldg permit. Inspector happened to drive by, stopped, saw no permit and threatened to shutdown the job. Fortunately I was home and scurried around contacting roofer and getting a proper permit. Moral is, it can go both ways.
  4. Looks like someone was pounding in some wedges with a few of those axe heads.
  5. If you're talking about hunting knives and tools, I've used what is called a whetstone all my life. Best size is ~2W"x6-7"Lx1"thk with dual sides & grits, 400 & 1000. One I specifically use is an oil (lubricant) stone. Would imagine you could use one for kitchen knives also, but I never have.
  6. Just a suggestion, but Walmart stores have a self-serve photo lab that prints photos from a lot of different media. You get to view &/or edit your photo before printing it. IRC, there is no payment required until ready to print.
  7. Read an article by a Whitetail Biologist stating a mature buck during the rut will typically travel ~5 miles from his home base. So to see a buck you've never encountered or caught on a trail cam isn't unusual. May also explain why some that may be around all summer seem to disappear in the fall.
  8. Hopefully the Vet will check for an implanted chip. Looks painful. Hope that pooch learned his lesson about playing with porcupines!
  9. Depends on the individual! I did none of the pre/post stuff mentioned above. First (Moderna) shot, I had no side effects at all. Second shot, had an injection soreness only.
  10. Always heard aiming 1/2 way up the neck is the rule of thumb.
  11. No beer cans where I like, but lots of fast food wrappers, bags & cups.
  12. Congrats Binghamton, 103.4" of snowfall last winter. Beating runner-ups Buffalo, Rochester & Syracuse by more than 30". NYC had record snowfall, but only in the ~30" range.
  13. Some wicked K-9s whatever it is.
  14. Same thing happened to my Muck boots. I used Shoe Goo adhesive and it has held fine for ~3yrs of occasional use with only the initial application. Apply Goop, put sole back on, put boots on and stand on them for several minutes. BTW - The soles on Muck boots is only a reinforcing layer. Nothing to do with water proofing.
  15. Footnote: When you make any noise to make a buck stop, he's probably going to end-up looking at you. So be prepared to shoot as you make the noise. I've stopped many bucks in their tracks using a doe bleat sound. Even after the (bow) shot they "may" stop for several seconds, reducing the retrieval somewhat or go down within sight.
