  1. Exactly! That hatchery is funded by tax dollars, which they don't pay, and licenses, which they don't buy. Yes they can hunt/fish on the reservation at anytime they choose, but if they're allowed to start doing this where does it end? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  2. So again, your version of conservation only matters to the fish you prefer. Sound Environmentalism.... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  3. So natives should be allowed to decimate a population because they see fit? Our good old DEC seems to be doing very little to nothing about it currently either. This sets an awful precedent. What next? They can deer hunt year round off the reservation with no limits also? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  4. Anyone hear anything about this? I just got information from a DEC officer that a bunch of Natives were caught spearing walleyes at the fish hatchery yesterday and the responding officers were told to not issue any violations and allow them to take the fish with them... I was also told there is a protest to take place at the hatchery this weekend. A friend of mine also just told me that it's on Facebook and there is currently more people there spearing? If this is true it makes my blood boil... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  5. Pounded them today, didn't even have live bait. We also boated a 6.4 lb largie! Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  6. I'll probably end up mounting that one up and I'll swap it in the future if I want to. But I've really come to appreciate the low end 2.5X on my rifles for deer hunting. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  7. Yea I hear that. I was going to buy a Browning Hells Canyon but they only had beat up floor models and calibers were all 6.5 PRC or 6.5 creedmoor and I didn't really want either of those. Finding guns in stock on shelves isn't easy these days... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  8. I would like a bit more upper end magnification, but I also love a 2.5x low end for woods hunting. I'm also a fan of low sitting scopes so I don't really want to go too big on objective either... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  9. Been eyeballing rifles the last few weeks, for no real reason other than it's been awhile since I added one. I was bored this morning and took a ride to Bass Pro and came home with a new girl for the safe. I decided on a Tikka T3X Lite Roughtech in 270 Win. I've owned a lot of rifles and I've never bought a Tikka or a 270 for that matter, so it just seemed right! I've handled the Tikkas a lot in the past and always loved the bolts and accuracy just never seemed to end up with one. Now I just have to decide on glass for it... I have a Leupold VX3 2.5-8 that I can throw on it but I'm not sure if I want an adjustable turret for longer range shooting. Decisions... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  10. I've seen bucks still wearing in mid April in the past, not too common though. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  11. I carried my 1911 about 2 times, it's been in the safe since. Too heavy and bulky for my liking concealed. If we were open carry I might be more inclined but too many other options to be uncomfortable all of the time in my opinion. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  12. If you can pin a stock and that makes it compliant, although it can be removed with a hammer and punch in minutes, I do not see how a MA maglock could be considered "not fixed." I could see the above mentioned with a simple Allen screw being in a grey area but I guess it really all boils down to what "fixed" means by law definition. Then again, they don't want you to know so do what you're comfortable with and go with it. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  13. Oh ok, I thought you were referring to the 40lb ones people keep under beds... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  14. You're only issue is IF there was a break in, they'll take that safe with them and everything inside. At the least I'd find a way to bolt that smaller safe to the floor. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  15. I have a 35 gun, it's a heavy girl. I keep all guns, some ammo for each, all important paperwork, spare keys, photos etc... It's fire rated and I also bought a pistol holder for the door with an additional fire resistant sealed pouch. The reason I don't like keeping paperwork, SS cards etc in a small fire rated box is if your home was burglarized they're going to run off easily with a small safe. Mine is 700lbs, noone is leaving with any of it. Additionally if there was a fire, those items are probably going to survive (guns included). I also carry additional homeowners insurance on the value of the firearms. It's a small price to pay for a bit of peace of mind, should they need to be replaced.

  16. Yep. I caught an 18" brown ice fishing a couple of years ago. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  17. I didn't realize anyone was doing this either? Interesting what their end goal is. I'm surprised catching them in Oneida isn't a bit more common with stocking. I caught one on a fly rod in early spring in the Seneca river a few years back. I agree that warm soup Oneida Lake in the summer doesn't seem to advantageous to trout/salmon.

  18. Yea me too, the big shed was from an 8 pt that broke a brow off during hunting season. We have pics of him. I couldn't scrape up the other side though. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  19. A few finds from today. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  20. Buy once, cry once. Spend the money on a good semi and you'll never wish you had a pump again. No issues shooting whatever you want through it, just swap chokes. I've shot everything from low brass shot to 3" buckshot for coyotes and my SX3 cycles it all. Spending $1400 on a shotgun that'll last forever is a pretty great deal. Easier on recoil, faster follow ups. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  21. I get my "big" trout fix all winter on steelies and browns so I attribute the "opener" to the stocked streams. Good luck! Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  22. Being surrounded by people isn't enjoyable to me. Especially people who only trout fish opening weekend to load up on stockies and have no educate on sharing a river with others. It's just not my scene, I'll wait until May to fly fish streams. I don't eat the trout either so... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  23. Just because it isn't new technology doesn't mean that it is or isn't sporting. I see no difference in watching birds every morning leading up to the opener or getting a picture? Or running non cell cams and checking them before the opener to see a very defined pattern then hunting based off of that Intel. If you get a cellular picture it doesn't mean you can run right over and kill one? The lines get blurred immensely. How about watching a buck run does in a field from the road then grabbing your rifle and sneaking up and killing the buck? Sporting? If you feel so oddly about it then running any cameras would seem out of place to me. It could also make a big difference if your property is a distance from where you live with current gas prices, why drive out to check cams anymore? I've brought this up before but, are fish finders sporting? My time is worth something so if either can shorten the time it takes me to find deer/birds/fish then I'm going to use it. It doesn't mean I'm going to catch fish or shoot a deer, just putting myself in a higher probability location from the start. It can also lead you to be more selective about harvest knowing what the quality of critter residing there is/isn't. Again, I put more time/effort into deer/fish than any sized turkey. If you have property that holds turkeys they really aren't to difficult to kill. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  24. "Sporting" is a rabbit hole. You're toting a 3" mag turkey load, decoys, several types of calls, roosting them the night before, a ghillie suit, a ThermaCELL and getting a picture of a bird is the non sporting part? To each their own, I admittedly don't put a lot of emphasis on turkeys as I don't find them all that interesting. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  25. Put them out, it's a turkey... No need to get regal about it. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
