  1. Serious question, how do the Trump lovers feel about his big announcement yesterday? You guys buying those trading cards?
  2. interesting that they used the term 'automatic' instead of semi-auto back then.
  3. Agree with the posts above. There are loads of birds here. They roam my neighborhood year-round. Also agree with the post about access. I'll be happily driving upstate to hunt turkeys in the spring to avoid the crowds. The relatively small amount of public access ground on Long Island will probably be loaded with hunters.
  4. I wonder if this silly bickering is partly what drives some people away.
  5. Holy geez, the nonsense some of you guys come up with to keep yourselves occupied.
  6. Agreed. And, isn't that exactly the problem? Both parties are just trying to out-crazy each other- nominating extremists within their party. The result is this awful hyper-polarized state that the country is in. At some point, moderates need to become electable again.
  7. Posted 8 hours ago Then again, there is reason to believe the Democrats are capable of election fraud and may very well steal the election. They can easily cover all fraud up too, since they control every agency that would have to look into it. Their corruption is the worst it has ever been. But that's another reason why many are planning to vote against them. Heads we win, tails they cheated. The never-ending grievance machine grinds on. Good plan to prepare the excuse and conspiracy in advance. Probably unnecessary. I think Zeldin will win.
  8. Haven't tried that. i did read about a lubricant that's supposed to be excellent. Oops- that was meant for the post from Ranger Clay.
  9. OK, thanks. I'll give that a try. I can't imagine it'll effect zero at 100?
  10. Do you suggest using three?
  11. So, are you suggesting 3 pellets? For all distances?
  12. So, do you think my issue is crud? I can't come up with any other ideas. When i shot at 200, i used the reticle on the scope that was designed for 200. The first two shots were good. After that, huge dropoff. I appreciate G-Man's advice about switching to powder. But, if i knew that the issue is purely due to the barrel getting cruddy after a few shots, even with a moist patch between shots, i'll just make sure that the gun is perfectly clean before heading into the woods for this season. Then, i'll probably make the switch to loose powder going forward.
  13. Last year, while sighting in my TC Omega 50 cal., the gun shot great at 100 yards. After about 6 or 8 shots, i moved to 200 yards and couldn't even get the gun on paper. I gave the gun a thorough cleaning, assuming that the dropoff was due to fouling. I brought the gun to the range this weekend and had a similar experience. Took two shots at 100, shot great. Moved to 200. The first 2 shots at 200 were pretty good. The next two shots dropped about 12". I ran a moist patch through the barrel after every shot. Brought the gun home and gave it another thorough cleaning. Will bring it to the range again and start at 200. Has anyone had similar experiences? I wouldn't expect the gun to get so fouled up after just a few shots that it would affect accuracy so much. I'm using Triple Seven powder pellets, 2 per shot with Shock Wave spire point 250 bullets.
  14. What about Northern Farmhouse Pasta in Roscoe? From the website, it looks great.
  15. Mods, the above post should probably be moved to the Political Humor section. Grouse, you're unintentionally hilarious. Your lack of self-awareness knows no bounds.
  16. We were supposed to do a goose/duck weekend this past weekend. But, the guys in my group bailed out due to the one-bird limit. I went up and had a good bow hunting weekend with a phenomenal wood duck shoot Monday morning before heading home.
  17. That's exactly why i was asking. My buddies and i picked up a few dozen silhouettes for this season. Haven't used them yet. Looking forward to adding them to the rig. Carrying and transporting bags of full bodies is a pain in the ass. And, the one-bird limit definitely takes away a lot of the incentive.
  18. From the pictures, i see shells and silhouettes. Do you use full bodies also? Big spread or small?
  19. Very nice. The limit in my area is only one bird- obviously not in yours.
  20. Isn't it sad that a person sees differing political points of view as reason to call someone an enemy?
  21. I started using a red dot site for turkey hunting two years ago. i loved it so much that i bought another shotgun to use for ducks/geese so that i could leave the red dot setup specifically for turkey.
  22. Your first paragraph matches exactly the conversation that my buddies and i have all the time- and will probably have again this weekend at the cabin. Can't wait for the days when i'm retired and will have more time to get up there and not feel rushed. i look forward to being there for a few weeks at a time- when my most difficult decision will be whether to bow hunt, duck hunt, or go fishing- or even sleep in occasionally. Good for you. Enjoy the time.
