  1. I used to use them, I bought the ones with a Velcro strip down the front. Very easy to open and slide into the stand. I got them for the sole purpose of blocking wind, and they worked great. The thing I did not like about them is that they stand out, the stands looked like a dishwasher strapped to a tree. I used them for probably 4 years before they were totally shredded, I did not replace them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Wow, that is terrible, I hope you are now on the path to a full recovery. I have three sisters who all work in healthcare and are much more educated than I, they tell me the same stories. They struggle with the politics and media hype of it all, but see it’s impact every day, and don’t pretend it’s not real. I kinda follow their lead on it. Sure for most of us this will be a nasty cold or flu, but that doesn’t change the fact that is so much more for so many. I am 57, in good health but with an underlying issue that puts me at high risk, my doctor wants me to do the infusion treatment or the new anti viral pill (??) I’ll learn more today. I have to say I am just getting up for the day and feel much much better than yesterday. The cough is still ridiculous, but I’m taking Benzonatate that seems to work pretty well. Welcome to the group. Where do you hunt in SWNY? We have a lease in Ellington. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Grandson actually!!! Coming in May! We couldn’t be more excited. Thanks to all for the kind words. This is not fun, but it’s basically a mild flu for me right now - with a cough that sounds like a sound effect from Jurassic Park. I’m sure I’ll be good to go in a few days. My biggest concerns are my pregnant daughter in law who is improving today from what I hear, and our 2 y/o grand daughter who is still dealing with this in a pretty serious way after three weeks. It has just been a rough 5 weeks now in our family. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. WTF?! So after spending the entire hunting season sick and the holiday season Being quarantine with kids and grand kids being positive, I tested positive today. We finally got together on Sunday to celebrate Christmas, yesterday my daughter in law tested positive- she is 5 months pregnant. Today I felt off and took one of the 20 tests I bought over the holidays when we were all coming down with it. Damn…Positive. Strangest cough I have ever had and a spitting headache, other than that I’m fine. Hopefully it stays that way. I am most worried about my daughter in law and the baby of course, hopefully this passes quickly. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I just knew someone would have to say this. No one is saying Browning factory rifles are the same as $5000 custom rifles, that's like saying a Yukon Denali is not a high end SUV because Lamborghini makes the Urus. Many models manufactured by Browning, Sako, Kimber, Weatherby and many others are "high end" to most hunters, including myself. Its not necessarily the cost either, when you handle them, you cycle the bolt and you feel the quality difference, the fit and finish shows craftsmanship, the blueing and wood are beautiful to look at and touch, the stainless is polished evenly..whatever it is. Anyone with an appreciation for quality firearms knows the Browning A-bolt is a fine rifle in anyones mind and a great addition to any collection.
  6. Maple medallions are also available from time to time. I have one in 30-06, it is a beauty.
  7. On the rare occasion I go turkey hunting I have used an O/U – I just like them. I have two different chokes and loads, one for a bit closer of a shot, one for further. It doesn't make a darn bit of difference to me because I never see birds and therefore never shoot. LOL! I will say those TSS loads in an O/U are painful. If I were going to buy a dedicated turkey gun it would be an auto I think.

  9. Haha! I’m definitely checking them out, I need all the help I can get. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I have lost track of my grandfathers and fathers guns over the years. It is sad to think about at times. Now that I have grand children, and more coming, of my own, I wish even more that I could have those firearms and memories/history. You guys who have these family heirlooms are very fortunate. I have made a conscious effort to keep the special guns, and buy guns that I can leave to my boys and grandkids. Just last night I asked my youngest son if my newest grandson, Matthew (due in May) will prefer a Browning or Beretta 20 gauge, I plan on buying an O/U for him the day he is born. My son jokingly said “I’m not raising any sissy’s, he’s gonna want a Hoyt!” Lol!!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My favorite pistol is the S&W Shield. Simply because I shoot it better than any other CCW I have ever owned. Second is a toss up between S&W 686 and Colt King Cobra Target. Both super fun to shoot, I do love the revolvers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I have read a lot of crazy stuff on the internet, but Shwacker being the best broadhead is a new one! LOL! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
