    Baiting help

    Here I am looking for advice on how to kill more deer and I find conversations about dicks, and bags with massive racks. Buzzkill.

    Baiting Bears in NY

    I don't think that's a bear. I've never seen one push a shopping cart.

    Why did he have to take my rock ?

    Has his gloves on the wrong hands. Or his hands on the wrong arms.

    Iron sights

    I mostly have peep sights on my rifles but I do have a couple scopes. I prefer the peep sight if the shots will be fast and tight and when the weather is rainy or snowy.

    September Goose

    Hope you guys are happy killing them while I'm stuck at work. Can't call in without losing the holiday pay. Leave a few out there for us! Good luck!

    What type of ML?

    Another NEF Huntsman here.

    Clean antlers.

    I actually was having a lot of trouble with them tearing up my trees before I started doing that and they have left them alone since. It certainly isn't because I've killed very many.

    Clean antlers.

    I've been hanging chunks of Irish Spring soap on mine the last few years and it seems to keep the deer away from them.

    Hunting gear and Permethrin

    I have a can of Sawyers and the label says it's good for 6 weeks. I've been going to spray my layout blinds just for the halibut.
  10. Utica/Rome area. Wait. I don't owe you money do I? Because if I do I live in Massena.

    the self checkout at walmart isnt that bad.....

    Tops are. I was always against the stupid self-checkouts and normally don't use them but sometimes... "All I have is this one frickin' _ _ _ _ and I don't feel like talking to anyone or waiting in line behind this dirty (whatever) that stinks like dope while they buy cigarettes with cash and their groceries with EBT while surfing on their smartphone." On those days I love the self-checkout.
  12. I only have 50 acres and 45 of it is open/tillable so for deer, no. Barely room for me. I let a couple friends hunt turkeys when they want to bring their kids because it's a good spot to bring kids and I'm not interested in shooting the stupid things. Now if someone pulls in with a trailer load of goose decoys, a dog and room in the lineup for me to drop my layout blind safely, it's on!

    Best remedy for poison ivy!

    Another vote for this stuff. I've had great luck with it. Something else that used to help me was going swimming right after my grandparents shocked the pool. When the chlorine smell was so strong it was awful; seemed to dry it right out.

    WHO'S WHO HERE NOW??????

    Nope. Been covert from day 1. I can barely keep track of one personality!

    WHO'S WHO HERE NOW??????

    I thought I was still me, but now I'm not sure; I could've really been someone else all along.

    Lifetime license

    Mine usually comes first week in August.

    Career change?

    If you can handle the negatives, mentally, then the positives sound great. A guy where I work quit in his early 50's to do it. I don't think NYS has enough money to ever get me to do it. About 15 years ago I actually turned down an opportunity to go be a NYS Trooper because I decided it was not for me. Guys I work with still break my chops about that because I'd be able to retire before much longer and be making more money, but it was the right decision for me.

    Waterfowl Shotguns

    Stuck a bird barrel on the old Mossberg 500 I used to hunt deer with before we could use rifles, threw on an aftermarket camo synthetic stock I got from Midway USA and gave it a custom rattle-can marsh grass camo job.
  19. I just figured they couldn't afford to get in.
  20. Good opinion piece in the WSJ a couple days ago about high tax states like NY.
  21. I'll see you all, this coming fall, in the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

    Big Woods Cabin Fever

    For the few days we had any snow I got my '73 Elan SS out and pulled the boys around on the sled. Been working on clearing some land. I have part of an old pasture that's growing up. Clearing the honeysuckle and buckthorn. Has some nice black cherry on it though that are getting up aroung 8-10".
  23. Not to be a Debbie Downer here, but who gets the $11 million when the wall doesn't get built?

    Correct way to test/check wheel bearing??

    Not always. I had a '97 Ram 1500 that had a bad front wheel bearing and the first indication I had was when the brake pads FELL OFF going down the road at 60 MPH!

    Antler restriction

    Experiences definitely. I don't have very many inches.
