  1. That's a good point Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  2. I was gonna say something similar about spending that money on other hunts around the country and around the world for that matter. Sounds like you do a fair amount of whitetail hunting already and there's alot more critters I'd like to check off my bucket list personally. Some guys are just obsessed with whitetails and I respect that but if I had that kind of cash I'd be out west chasing an elk or in newfoundland for a woodland Caribou. To each his own though. Hope you find what you're looking for Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  3. Would trying to shoot lefthanded help? Probably easier said than done. Just a thought Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  4. Just finished 2 gobbling gobblers. The one in the limb is my father in law's and mines on the little fireplace. 3rd and 4th full mount turkey's I ever did. Think I'm ready to take on some bird customers Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  5. Get well soon Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  6. My fishing partner got a nice one. 24lb 11oz I got a small king and a decent brown. Charter out of Oswego Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  7. Thermacell Holster with Clip Full https://a.co/d/iFJL5TS They make this holster for it with a clip on the back so you can clip it to you vest or a pocket. Plus it holds extra fuel and mats. Game changer! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  8. Just took a video of a hen with about 10 poults. Really small, thought they'd be bigger by mid July Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  9. Got out this morning on the kayak. Had 4 keeper bass until a frickin snapping turtle decided one was his. Try to pull up my stringer and the bastard was locked on. Had to give him a wack with the paddle to let go but I threw the mangled one back in for him. I guess we both won Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  10. My old man always told me to stop and smell the roses once in awhile. Gotta sit back and appreciate what you have now and then. When I do get upset or frustrated I try to remember that I got a freakin moose on my wall and maybe I should quit my bitchin! Very well written post and definitely something that needed to be said! Thank you! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  11. Second one was better. Third one was awful. Goodfellas is the greatest mob movie of all time Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  12. This is a project I've been working on for a while and we just released this video a few weeks ago. I call it a project and not a band yet because it's just me and a vocalist for now. I do all the music and he does all the lyrics, singing and video production. I play all the guitars and bass and program the drums myself with drum editing software. Let me know what you guys think Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  13. Our temporary fire pit Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  14. If you have a buck patterned then early season is your best chance at killing him before he starts changing his routine. Early season is a great time to put a few does in the freezer too. I love all of deer season myself. If the season is open and I have a tag and don't have to work... I'm hunting!!! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  15. Didn't have to work until 1pm yesterday so I hit the lansingburgh reservoir with my kayak in the am now that I live about 100 yards from it. 3 keeper bass and a bunch of shorts. Saw some huge splashes so I went to investigate and saw a big old carp. Talked to a guy as I was leaving and he said some girl caught a 5lb bass out of it last year. Nice having a fishing spot so close to home now Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  16. Wowza!!! Fantastic mount as always Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  17. Yea I don't understand the hate against replica fish. Either way that fish has to be completely painted top to bottom so whether it's their actual skin or not doesn't really matter. The taxidermist has to put all the fish's colors and patterns back on with paint so it's not like you're getting the exact markings of your particular fish exactly the way it came out of the water. Plus the detail in these replica forms are so good that they actually look better than real fish and they always will. Seen alot of old fish mounts that look like hell. The skin dries and splits or the fins curl and crack. Plus there's always a possibility of missing a microscopic piece of meat or fat in the fleshing process and having the thing stink. I've only mounted a few fish myself but I'll always recommend a replica over a skin mount Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  18. I would do a double replica mount to remember an awesome day like that!!! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  19. Worked a summer program for the town of coeymans when I was 14. Basic maintenance at a park down the road from where I grew up. Maintained and marked hiking trails, painted picnic tables, cleaned trash and a ton of weed whacking. Then worked for my buddy's father's landscaping company all through high school and a few years afterward. Then bounced around working for a bunch of different contractors. Framing, roofing, siding, drywall, windows, insulation, flooring, kitchens and bathroom remodeling. Started working for a moving company on the weekends and the money was a lot more than what I was getting for construction so I switched to full time. Been doing that for almost 12 years now. Hopefully in a few years I can grow my taxidermy business into my full time career. Gonna need some help from you guys for that!!! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  20. She pretty much runs the show here Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  21. https://www.mountmedix.com/ Unfortunately I have run into this problem. They destroyed one of my deer mounts. Luckily for me it was my smallest buck that I only mounted because I needed the practice (I've been doing taxidermy for a few years now). This product worked for me. By the time I noticed it the first mount was beyond fixing but I treated all of my other mounts and so far so good. If anything happened to my moose I would have been devastated! That was last summer so I think I'm in the clear. My wife and I took all the mounts outside, sprayed them, wrapped them in garbage bags and left them in for a few hours I think, then unwrapped and left outside for a few more hours to dry. I believe you can do it while keeping them inside but it will take a long time to get the smell of that stuff to dissipate. It's not that bad of a smell but it's not something you want to be breathing in if you can help it. Just follow the directions and you should be good. Hope this helps Was supposed to rain that day so I set up my canopy Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  22. Hope someone here gets a tag. It's a great time! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  23. Jumped one out of some tall grass on my way out. That's a wrap for my season. Hope someone here knocks one down on the last day! Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  24. Last chance to dance for me this year. Not a turkey to be seen or heard yet but I did just see a bear! Looked pretty big too Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
  25. First time I've been able to walk out my back door and harvest an animal. So glad I bought a house right next to a property I already hunt. 5/12 heard him gobble on the roost a few times but flew away from me. Could only hunt until 830am because I had to work so I figured I'd check the big field before heading home. Didn't see any turkey's but there was a hawk and once he saw me he flew away and screeched and that caused a shock gobble. I get set up real quick in some really thick brush. Set a hen decoy to my right a bit knowing he'd come from my left. Once I was set I gave some soft clucks and I see the periscope head pop up. He struts for quite a while at 80 yards then starts to lose interest. Hit him with some soft yelps and he makes his way over. Had him at 10 yards for a while but couldn't shoot through that thick stuff. He starts walking away so I had to crawl out of the brush a bit when he wasn't looking and wait for him to put his head down to get my gun up. When his head came back up, I knocked it back down. 40 yards with the mossberg 500 20 gauge. 19 pounds, 8 or 9 inch beard(can't remember exactly) and little 5/8 in spurs. Had to be a 2 year old I would guess Sent from my SM-G975U using Tapatalk
