  1. Been using Pyrodex pellets or powder for 20 yrs and never an issue. Can always shoot 3 SSTs before needing to swab barrel. Shots are always consistent and never a misfire on any of my inlines
  2. Order online from Cummings Nursery near Ithaca. There will ship the bare root whips to your house. Focus only on disease resistant apple trees like Enterprise, Freedom, Jonafree, and Liberty. Keiffer pear is also good. Avoid the store brand apples like Macintosh, golden and red delicious etc. They succumb to disease and need an intensive spray program to produce any significant quality fruit I have had just as much luck planting 1-2 year old bare root "whips" as I do planting potted larger trees. They catch up quick and seem to establish better
  3. This was tradition for years. The Friday after Thanksgiving. My uncle and friends had a 9oo acre farm in Holland NY we pushed most of the day. Man, did it produce some tremendous bucks. DUring my teenage years and early 20s I waited all year for this day
  4. I dont think any number of preference points is a guarantee. I received one 9P tag landowner preference but my hunting partner is trying to get one also.
  5. I realize that. 8P is pretty difficult too. Trying to help out my hunting partner
  6. Anyone interested in swapping their 9P for an 8P DMP?
  7. Barbed wire around the perimeter makes me think there are probably some major tresassing issues
  8. Gotta love the old muscle too. First pic is my 67 Camaro SS RS. Second is my 1970 Nova SS396 L78 coming home, first time it had seen the light of day in 20yrs. After 3 months of redoing nearly everything mechanical, it is finally back on the road. If the rice rocket next to me doesn't understand the sound of the solid lifters rattling away at the stoplight, he has no idea of the beast under the hood that is about to be unleashed
  9. Mine was a Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifle. My Dad used to keep it in its box in his closet. I knew exactly where it was and used to sneak in there and look at it for hrs each day. Can still smell the brand new plastic/Hoppes #9 smell LOL
  10. I have a Remington Sendero in 25-06. One of my favorite guns.
  11. Im going to sit on my porch at dawn with a coffee in late April and listen for gobbles. Thats the extent of my scouting. Get a brid every year
  12. Hey Larry Any rust or blemishes on metal? How about stock?
  13. Best shop ever. Phil was the best bow tuner I have ever met. Several years ago Gander Mtn had screwed up my bow and he made it perfect. Subsequently bought a new bow from him several years later and was also tuned to perfection
  14. I have a Remington SP-10 and the thing is absolutely deadly on geese. I cannot get any of my 3.5 12 ga to pattern BB or 2 anywhere near as good as this gun. It has virtually no recoil as it is heavy and gas operated. In fact, it kicks less than an 870 shooting 2 3/4" loads. In fact, it is my most borrowed gun as many of my buddies want it for goose hunting. I have no idea why one of the posts above states it has a small safety and this somehow effected their turkey hunting???? I have shot hundreds of geese with this gun and never even thought twice about the safety Now a 10ga pump--that may be pretty brutal on the shoulder
  15. Larry--awesome buck! Was that 8N?
