  1. 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.

  2. Curious as to your reasoning for this feeling? Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. Spot on from what I've seen as I weigh all of my deer also. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  6. 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
  7. It does too much meat damage, ask WOLC. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. Making me jealous! I can't wait to pull the boat out this spring and hit the finger lakes for Lakers and salmon. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  11. You're a loser, always will be. Once you kill a better buck than this one with a BOW then you can post it 67 times trying to force an argument and I'll oblige. Until then, keep hiding behind that bible and BS... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  12. Final answer: Chef's a troll, probably larger than Wolc at this point.... Happy New Year. That is all. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  13. I do oil changes myself in everything, vehicles, quad, boat, motorcycle, lawnmower etc. I'm not cheap, but I'm not paying someone $100 to spend 15 minutes draining oil. The wheeler is a bit of a pain because I need to remove plastics for access, but still not bad. If I can do it myself I prefer to with any repair/maintenance. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  14. I have thousands of older assorted sports cards, I looked up a few dozen one day just to see.... I found most are worth a buck or two. I thought about dropping them off to someone to look at to see if any had real value, but then I figured if there was a good one in the mix, they'd probably steal it and I wouldn't have a clue anyhow. So, they still sit in boxes. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  15. My oven is gas also, I don't get any gas smell from mine. I much prefer mine in the smoker so I doubt I'll ever use a dehydrator again. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  16. Apparently I've never made jerky in the oven then... I'm telling you I've set the oven to 200° and it's done in 2 hours or less. I would never bother cooking jerky in the oven for 4-6 hours. Try it and tell me that it's not possible then... Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  17. Yea the charcoal and propane take a lot more babysitting and trial and error. I set mine to temp, set the digital timer and it shuts itself off when it's done if need be, real easy. Wow, I've used the same method in my oven and I don't ever recall it taking more than 3 hours at 180°ish. My dehydrator is old now but that's the part I hated about it was that it took 10-12 hrs to finish and you had to rotate trays every few hours and then keep checking it toward the end so I had to have a plan to get it done properly. I generally smoke mine in about 2.5-3 hours also, so it's a quick ordeal. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  18. Really? I think the oven is the fastest method? It's generally done in 2 hours for me. Depends on thickness obviously but it seemed fast compared to the others. You can pick up a 30" electric smoker for about $200 and it's really easy to use. Plus you'll find yourself using it for a lot of things, not just jerky. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  19. My wife bought me a slicer so I see some more jerky in my future. I typically smoke mine but will use the oven if in a hurry. Not a huge fan of the dehydrator anymore, just takes 3 times longer to get the same results I feel. The smoker is my preferred method now. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  20. Where did I give them credit? I stated that if you want to be informed you take the info you're given and do your own fact searching to corroborate. If you don't want to then I don't care. I guess I'm not an outdoorsman either, due to your fact checking. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  21. You make a lot of assumptions. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  22. So it can't be true at all because of who you heard it from? Seems like a shallow way to go about finding truth... Are they a bit crazy at times? Sure. Do they always get it "wrong?" Nope. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  23. I used to work with a guy that worked in a place that raised beagles and ferrets for testing purposes. He used to tell me the things that went on there and there's no way I could stomach it. Awful things are done everyday to animals to test out everyday items (hairspray, medicine, cleaning chemicals etc) that flys under the radar of the common citizen. I won't go into detail but I'm a bit more PETA after hearing what he had to say. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  24. Yep. We shot a bunch of 223 tracers s few years ago at night and those rounds were bouncing in all sorts of weird directions after minimal contact with a target. It is pretty unnerving actually, but a great learning tool. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
  25. I'm sure they'll match it's power somehow, but the sound will never be the same and that's part of the experience. Nothing beats a big V8 sound, mix it with the supercharger whine and it's unbeatable. Hell even my 6.4L in the 2500 sounds good. Sent from my moto g fast using Tapatalk
