  1. You and me both Jay. Thought I was done for the season but last night I realized today was going to suck so might as well spend it in the woods. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Two years ago today started off like every other day of hunting with my dad, brother and I. The three of us sitting at mom and dads dining room table for an hour before we had to head to the woods having coffee and breakfast. My dad and I arguing because he made the coffee to weak and where we were going to sit, where to sit my brother and what drive to make first and in what direction. The night before was like so many other nights for our family, my wife at the time, my daughter my brother and sister-in-law and I all had dinner at mom and dads and we spent most of the night picking on each other about something or other and talking about the next days hunt. That morning I sat exactly where I’m sitting right now and was planning on doing the first push to my dad and brother. Little did I know that would be the last drive I would ever do for my dad. Dad killed a doe that morning then as many of you know suffered heart failure and died on top of his last deer just after he finished gutting it. My brother and I were on either side of him when it happened. They say that time heals everything and that’s not true, I miss the old man more today than I did the day he died. He was the greatest father, “papa” husband and man that I have ever known. I love you old man! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's your ML load?

    Like most everything they were the best there was for a while but there are now far better options. Obviously if it worked before it will still work today but I’ll never go back! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Highly unlikely there will be a next time, that place ain’t for me. We had pizza in little Italy and it was good but expensive. Best thing I ate was the bagels. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Yea it was awful! Probably my one and only trip to the city in my life so I had to try it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Last week of archery, I have wanted to kill a buck with my dads Xbow and it was a fun hunt still hunting. I like being in the woods and like having a tag in my pocket so for me to shoot a buck early in the season it’s gotta be a giant. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Last sit of the year, will shoot a doe if a good opportunity presents itself but it will be given away, my freezer is full. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What's your ML load?

    I’ve got 3 muzzleloaders that I use and every one shoots the same load under 1.5” 3 shot group with no cleaning in between. 84grains of blackthorn 209 by weight Barnes TSX 270gn .451 bullet Harvestor sabot .451 sabot I’ve been using this load for about 5 years have yet to have a deer die out of sight. Shoots extremely consistent. “Clean, dirty, cold , warm etc”. I have tried loads that shot better groups but never found anything to be this forgiving and consistent. I have tried a lot of loads powders, bullets and sabots and my conclusion is if wouldn’t shoot pellets if someone gave me a life supply and if someone gave me a lifetime supply of power belts I’d drill holes in them and use them as sinkers. Pellets “777 and shockey’s” are too inconsistent in weight and both create the burn ring making loading more difficult. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hunted all day on a chunk of state land saw a ton of deer and a few small bucks. Tomorrow will probably be the last hunt of the season until Ohio because a few local lakes have froze so it’s time to shift gears. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Good rifle for daughter

    I like the idea of single shots for youth. If you’re a handi fan a 30-30 would be perfect, I have 2 a youth for my daughter and a full size for me. The cva hunters are a hell of a gun for the money and available in youth models as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Jealous? I’m more excited now than I was in oct. crows are starting to flock up big Time and I can’t wait until Friday morning. You pheasant guys should consider crow hunting. It’s a blast, my dog loves retrieving them and I love shooting them. Best part is I’m saving people money instead of wasting it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. It’s useless, apparently youtube hasn’t taught the self proclaimed turkey expert that turkey can fly over fences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Where am I on the other wastes? Way more vocal than I am on pheasant hunting. I’m at every meeting there is on my local lake, Lake George on the bull shit boat washing stations they have put in place that wastes an ungodly “no one will give me the actual cost” amount of money. You’re correct raising pheasant to be released and killed is a very small piece of the pie but last time I checked I don’t put the whole pie in my mouth at once I eat it one bite at a time. Once again I’ll repeat myself I have no problem with pheasant hunting or pheasant hunters but I think it should be self sustained. Just as It should be for trout and salmon. Stocking numbers should be based on amount raised the previous year of a trout/salmon permit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Or just charge a fee for the permit to hunt the park. Something I’m sure he would gladly pay. Just as I would gladly pay an extra 50-100$ to be able to trout and salmon fish or to be able to hunt state land. Seems to me the only ones here that are against any extra fees are the pheasant hunters that have been riding the shirt tails of the other big and small game hunters.

  15. Yea, I’m serious many other states do it. The only thing you’ve laid out in this thread is your opinion, I’ve yet to see you post any stats. How the hell could I be an angry CO? I haven’t stepped foot in a prison since sept 28 and still have 10 more days before I go back. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
