  1. What other toy are you replacing it with? I've been looking at smaller-ish caliber (.243, 25-06, 257 WBY - not so small) rifles. Any idea what the rig weighs scope and all?

    Happen To Come Across This

    Heaviest one I've personally come across field dressed at 206lbs up in Franklin County. Seeing him trailing a hot doe looked like a semi-truck tailgating a ford focus. Trying to get that him back to the truck required a phone call to some friends and a few cases of beer. He filled my freezer, and will be on my wall within the next month or so.

    Love watching Dan Infalt and the hunting beast guys on youtube/podcasts. Highly entertaining and there is always something to learn from that crew.

    Pretty Cool News From My Taxidermist

    I've never been a measurements guy. I care more about how much they weigh after field dressing. With that said, I thought my buck from late muzzleloader might make B&C. He ended up grossing 154 3/4" and netted 150 1/2". I'm still in shock that I actually saw something that big let alone got a crack at it. The odds of me seeing something that big again on public land in NY are exceptionally low. He ended up field dressing at 196, and he tastes delicious Taxidermist talked me into a floor pedestal mount, and I cannot wait to see what he looks like in late spring.
  7. If you see a guy that is really ridiculously good looking with a toddler in tow, that would be me. Just dont judge the diaper bag....i had zero say in what was purchased.
  8. Warren Buffet has had me hooked on lower fee index funds for a while for my Roth IRA which usually perform pretty well. My 401k is a hodge-podge of funds from Vanguard that have stomachable fees associated with them.
  9. I'm trying to get out of Daddy Daycare duty, but things aren't looking good. Asking a pregnant wife to forgo a massage is a risky proposition, but I'll try my best.
  10. I could be in. Depends on day as I have a pregnant wife and a monster of a 2 year old toddler.

    2018 HuntingNY Gun Harvest Thread

    Was very fortunate to run into this guy the last Saturday of muzzleloader. Shot wasn't great as I had a tight window, and he was quartering away. It was good enough that he bedded down within 20 yards of the shot and gave me the opportunity to reload and put another one in him. He didn't have a liver left which is probably why he bedded down so fast. No idea what he scores (upper 140s/low 150s?), but he field dressed at 195 pounds. To say my wife is excited for a new wall decoration is an understatement
