    Injured Bird of Prey

    Just saw this post. I think that Green Chimneys in Patterson has an injured bird of prey recovery program. Obviously too late now, but they might be able to help in the future if you run into the same. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    First Shot Daily Pics

    Trick I was taught was the following. Get in shooting position without a bow and hands at your sides. Pick your bow arm up so it's parallel to ground and palm facing down. Break your wrist back. That is the natural position to shoot your bow from. Elbow is rotated out of the way. If you bend your arm at the elbow from this position it should move horizontally not vertically. I was bringing the bow up while gripping it firmly then adjusting my palm. Grip probably wasn't right and elbow wasn't rotated. Doing that exercise prior to shooting got rid of string slap.

    What's for dinner tonight?

    Asian venison dumplings with soy based sauce and green beans. Lots of effort for the dumplings but worth it. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Stand height for hangon

    When you are in a stand or at elevation for that matter, line of site distance is not the distance you should be ranging. For example, if you are 20 feet up in the tree, and a deer is 25 feet away from the base of the tree the effective distance is a 15 foot shot. Projectile drop due to gravity is only from the horizontal distance travelled not total distance. That difference grows the higher you are on the closer the deer is. The further away the deer is the less impact this has. I know there are altitude adjusting range finders out there, but I don't know how many use them. I only mention because I know a few people who didn't realize this and were missing completely or losing because of marginal hits at close range slam dunk shots from high up.

    Go for the full Monty and just throw up in the back seat. Nice humid day will bring that smell back no matter what you do to it. I laugh when I think of the poor bastard driving our old otherwise mint condition Subaru Forester that bore the brunt of two kids in car seats wondering what that smell is.

    I have a climber that is yours if you want to pick it up and try it. Barely used. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Feather Type?

    Archaeopteryx. I know you all are better woodsmen and women than me, but I am pretty confident. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    How many Hunt alone ?

    Always alone. This year my youngest got his license. I will take him for a few hunts this year, probably for squirrel more than anything else. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    FYI boaters..

    I tried to help a clueless boater dock his new 33 foot cruiser in one of the transient slips this afternoon. He threw me a stern line and I tried to walk his boat back into the slip. I couldn't believe how weak I was trying to pull his boat until I realized he still had his boat in gear idling forward. Ughh. Almost ended up in the drink before the googin realized his mistake. I heard later that he has nearly cut another boat in half running the boat on autopilot through fishing grounds. I am starting to think mandatory classes might be a good idea.

    FYI boaters..

    I agree with you totally. Unfortunately, I think there are more careless people out there today. I had a 30 foot sport fisher come into the harbor last weekend, nearly run me down from behind in a no wake zone and force a zodiac to make evasive moves in front of him to avoid a collision. Everyone should take the course as good practice, but I hate more laws mandating it. Sadly, the more idiots out on the water the easier it is for pols to justify the need for the law.

    Some interesting data on Mechanicals VS Fixed

    Interesting read and contrary to the results I would have expected. Just remember though that 72.4% of statistics are made up. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Came across this boat for sale

    I hear you. I spent the better part of Saturday changing the alternator belt on one of the engines on my father's boat. I remain convinced that they hung the engines from the air and built the boat around it. Always remember the fun you have had / are going to have on it when crap like this happens. As I crawled out of the engine compartment, covered in grease and muck, he looked at me and said one day this will be yours. I told him not to do me any favors. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk

    Beer

    Enjoy it. Rumor in the neighborhood is they are being bought by Anheuser Busch or whomever owns them. No clue if it's true or what it means for them, but drink it while you got it. Sent from my Pixel 3 using Tapatalk
