  1. Bass are in no way better tasting than walleye or perch in any poll. Bass are easier to catch which I'm guessing is probably a factor in some people's situation (much like shooting fawns). I like eating fish and I haven't kept a bass in forever. If you like them then go for it, but I know a TON of fisherman and very few keep bass at all, yet most are willing to go out and sit on a block of ice when it's 5° to catch perch/walleyes. What's that tell ya? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk

  4. I also prefer Husky liners to weather tech for the same reasons others mentioned. They are softer in composition which seems to allow them to remain in a perfect fit for years. My wife has weathertechs and hers are seeming to pull away a bit from the contours they started with. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  5. Color is usually my last concern when truck shopping also, this time I ended up with black, I wanted the granite crystal but couldn't find a package I wanted in that color. I love a black vehicle when they're shined up, problem is it lasts for 20 minutes. My Tundra was silver and that truck would hide a lot of filth, but never looked as good when it was polished either. The boat matching comment is funny because I didn't even think about that but when I got the truck home I realized they matched also... I still have more to do to mine, window tint, wheels, grille/brush guard, considering a 4" suspension lift. The fun in owning trucks is making it your own. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  6. If you have the vin # just Google it in a few days or a week. It'll bring up your vehicle wherever it's for sale. I did that for my Tundra, they paid me $32k, it was for sale for $36,900 and sold for $34k in Ohio. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  7. I just did the same in September, went to a 3/4 Ton. I also didn't really "need" a 2500 to tow my boat but I knew I wanted 35" tires and the 2500's will fit them stock. I threw a level kit and 35x12.5's on it and it sits like a 1500 would with a 4-5" lift kit installed. I also got a sweet deal on my trade so I figured why not...

  8. I got rid of my slug gun once just about every area I hunt went to rifle. I hope I never have to deer hunt with a slug gun again, never liked it. I'll take a muzzleloader over slug guns anyday. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  9. Ram is tough to beat in bang for your buck I think. I went back to Ram a few months ago also when I traded my Tundra in. I have no complaints with the Ram yet, other than the mirrors are a bit funky, unless you just leave them in tow mode. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  10. From recollection I thought that wood was Maple on the Medallions. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  11. To me? Yes. Would it make a damn difference if the deer ran across the Rd into the same said piece in front of the drivers? Or what if someone watched him bed down in there then they organized a drive? So in order to be fair chase you can't have any indication of where a deer may be in relation to where you are hunting?? Do you hunt from a treestand? Weren't you just asking for better light gathering scopes not long ago? I presume that's all fair chase to you though.... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  12. Haha well I guess we all have our fears. Do you walk in public with your family? I find it odd that your fear of trail cams is that a "freak" might be spying on you out in the woods, on public land... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  13. So it's about you thinking you deserve the turkey more than the next guy? Aren't you also the person who will only hunt during the archery season if crossbow is included? Don't see the hypocrisy here? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  14. Privacy in this day and age is gone. You're entitled to your opinion but I don't think limiting people's rights to use cameras should only apply to those that do not own land. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  15. Well, sorry to burst your bubble, but that's everyone's area Bill. Why do the cameras bother you? Afraid someone is going to get your prized turkey? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  16. I love my XDS45 for carrying. My next pistol will most likely be the Glock 40 MOS 10mm long slide for a functional hunting semi. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  17. The whole conversation is odd to me really. I can see both sides to a point. On one hand a guy can plant food plots, put up a redneck blind, sit in there with the heater on watching 300 acres of corn and shoot a deer with a $3,000 rifle and drive over on his UTV and drag it out. Yet a camera is an unfair advantage?? Give me a break. If I were to come up with a rifle system that were computer driven somehow to never miss a shot, hunters would buy it up faster than I can get them. Same with crossbows, look how that market is taking off in NY. Are fish finders cheating also? How many of you would be ok with banning them while fishing? I see no issues with trailcams. I have 5 cell cams, yet I did not tag a buck this year. Most hunters could run 20 cameras and still not be able to piece together anything meaningful. The cameras are as much for entertainment than anything. We have debates on here constantly about "if you don't want to use a crossbow, then don't", "if you don't like the early season then don't hunt it" but now it's suddenly ok for someone to tell someone else if they should be allowed to use cameras? Is this sentiment a worry that the neighbor might find out about a big buck hanging around? In my opinion, we have enough BS in NY, trail cameras don't even register for the list.

  18. Curious as to your reasoning for this feeling? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  19. From what I've read, that information is not true. I also know quite a few people at work that have been sick and tested negative for Covid multiple times. If you're statement is true, then everyone with a cold would test positive? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  20. Add me to the list, I felt like hell on Monday, test came back positive. Muscle aches, back pain, chills/sweating, no appetite. Muscle aches are better today but I have a stabbing pain between my shoulder blades when the Tylenol runs out. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  21. Spot on from what I've seen as I weigh all of my deer also. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  22. I agree. I paid roughly $55 a month to own my (then brand new) Tundra for 6 years. Bought it for $36k, traded it for $32k. I spent $4,000 to drive it for 6 years. But right, sell right and keep rolling positive equity. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  23. It does too much meat damage, ask WOLC. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  24. Seems to me like we need a good ole fashioned "Gangs of NY" style meetup. Bring your own weapons, (no crossbows, that's cheating)... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  25. Oh boy... He never said the meat was going to waste. Isn't this the same thing as shaming someone for shooting a deer that isn't up to your standards? You've never killed anything you have no intention of eating? Coyote? Skunk? Opossum? Crow? Diver ducks? Jesus, you people must've had bad Christmases or something. Who cares when someone else guts their deer?? You aren't eating it, and it's no different than letting one lay overnight. I wouldn't have made the same choice not to gut the deer then, but I'm not eating it and I'm sure it's fine. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
