    What ML bullet..

    Just checked, Guess I have a full box of 250gr Shockwaves and a full box of 250gr Traditions Smackdown bullets still. I was thinking of switching to the 250 or 280gr Barnes Expander Spitifre if i did try new.. Since i have 2 boxes of plastic tip bullets. Maybe its a normal thing to not get much of a blood trail with these plastic tip bullets? Or maybe i should slow them down a bit. If i remember right, which isnt easy to do.. I think when i shot (2) pellets instead of (3) my wound channels and blood trails were slightly better. I think.. been probably 6 or 7 years since i upped powder charge.. Anyhow, i plan to use the ML almost all of Gun season like I used to do when i was younger and rifles weren't legal yet. Had a ton of faith in my Omega when I used to tote it everytime..

    What ML bullet..

    What bullet and weight is everyone shooting and the powder you as well please.. I always shot (3) 50gr Triple 7 pellets.. After reading here about the Blackhorn 209.. I am going to switch powders and test the waters.. I also shoot the 250gr T/C Shockwaves. They always shot very accurate for me, but I have only had 1 good blood trail since using them.. Luckily I saw most fall after being shot, some dropped, some took off a ways and some didnt go far.. I want to reach out to 200yrds accuratley .. as my triple 7 and 250 gr shockwaves did this with ease.. If it matters.. both my ML are T/C.. an Omega, and a Triumph. TIA

    Bear vandalism

    Didnt take a picture of the mess, but i checked a cam Last week and a bear had found it a few days before i got to it.. It was twisted around the back of the tree, strap loosened up and kind of dangling off the tree.. Love getting their pics but hate when they find the camera. Luckily, the browning still works!

    Earth scent / No scent / what scent

    I do scent free on my out layers, and use dead down wind spray when i feel necessary .. My inner layers get washed with normal clothes wash. I just try not to stink like i used to back in high School when i thought certain fragrances brought the ladies in running lol..

    Bumping deer in the dark.

    I try to circle around them as far away as possible... down wind if possible.. And act like you dont even see them. Some times you can get right around them. As always stated they usually see you before you see them. IMO act like you could car eless about them, avoid them and carry on and dont do it too slowly..

    Almost bushwacked by a big coyote

    I went across an open freshly planted dirt field last spring trying to get on roosted birds, running a few minutes later than i had planned. I could just start to make colors out as the day woke.. I looked to my left and saw what i thought was a deer approaching me quick, glanced to my right and saw 2 more, approaching me quick.. Still thinking they were deer for some reason that just hadnt noticed me yet.. They got to less than twenty yards and bolted.. as they ran spooked i could then tell that they were in fact not deer lol. Scare me? not at all, kinda of thought it was cool actually. It would be fun to hunt them in shorts and tshirts.. but its just as much fun doing it after during and deer season as well. I have a good number of song dogs at my camp. We have taken 1 so far this year already..

    What kind of Snake is this??

    I dont do the snake thing.. nasty effers... But my first thought was a copperhead.. but I didnt think there were any in New York. I also wont argue with anyone on it either lol.... Compared to the pictures posted here.. looks most like a copperhead to me, vs a milk snake..

    Barnett's Customer Service SUCKS !

    Cant speak for Barnett, but I emailed Ruger Arms a week ago about a magazine issue in my 22 250.. I got the automatic email stating they will contact me shortly. Havent heard anything yet. Ill wait a bit longer and call in a week or two if i dont hear anything. Im not in a big hurry but would like a fix.. Im sure its not the easiest or quickest when one company supports a world full of people.. Only reason i contacted them was cause i heard they would fix the issue for free since it seems to be a re occurring issue.. Hope they contact you in the near future..

    HELP squirrel in my wall

    I feel your pain! Had one in the walls of one my old houses. One day i found him inside the house running around, I opened the door to the garage and chased him out.. after never being able to catch him before then... I got lucky and he ran right into a tied fishing hook from one of my poles.. caught him by the neck lol.. The rest was history after finishing him off.. What a relief!

    Here's a good one!

    The only reason i might not hunt when its that warm out is for the fact that I can never usually process a deer immediately after. And i dont not have a cooler to put it in yet. If i did, Id be out there.

    where have all the bucks gone........

    Exactly, If i hide my "Black Flash" cams well.. I can usually fool the 2 old guys i have roaming the hill.. But if i dont, they'll pick it out before walking in front of it and avoid it. And I'll never get their pic there again if at all, unless they are trailing a hot doe. Only exception ive noticed for these 2 bucks in the last 4 or 5 years is that if the camera is near camp at all, it doesnt seem to bother them as much. They seem to feel very comfortable in my backyard at camp since no one is really ever around.. Heres a pic from last week of one of them, this cam is 15ft from the back porch of my camp.. And sticks out in the middle of the yard. Any where else away from camp, this wouldn't fly.. lol

    Mock scrape

    I made a couple on the edges of transitions, as they funnel into the food plots this year, and one on the beginning of a food plot entrance... I used it more of an eye sore to pick their curiosity .. a random tree with a cluster of branches hangin off one side... Theyll either run, or come check it out IMO.. I also used a piece of hemp rope and dangeled it out into a trail. Almost every doe that walks by it checks it out.. Its my first year doing Mock scrapes... So we will see.
