    New Deer Dropper

    My grandfather has a Marlin 336 with a peep. I have been thinking of getting one, since I'm trying to do more walking. (I wouldn't call what I do tracking or still hunting) It would be hard to go back to open sights at this point. I will have to give that some thought. My pick would be a Marlin 30/30 too.

    A ny chart ...

    I agree. 40% of dressed weight seems to be what I get. This is true if I butcher myself, or take to the processor I use back home.

    How are the wood-burners doing?

    I have burned a little more than normal. Our house is small, so we only go through a couple cords. I'm not sure I have burned a half cord yet. Certainly has been colder than normal for November. The wood stove sure feels nice. If I run short I can grab some from the 4 or 5 cords that I have yet to sell. Sunday is the last day of deer hunting in Vermont, so I will be back to cutting trees. I have some dead elm that need to be cleaned out of the hedgerow. My brother and my best friend have only cut about 10% of the wood they need for the winter. They both got caught by the 18-20" of snow that came down awhile back. I'm sure I will be headed over that way with my saws as well. It's a never-ending cycle.

    Taking down ground blinds

    This makes me laugh. My father-in-law went with me to take down a hub blind here at the house. I guess he needed something to do. He tried to "help", but finally realized that there is no reasoning with a hub blind. "Turn it clock-wise, no counter clockwise..." Right. We got it, but it's always a cluster. It's even worse when one folds right up, because then you think you have something figured out.

    2018 Baseball Thread

    I really like the Evoldi signing. I think he's a good fit. It's an added bonus that the Yanks and Astros were after him. He gives the Sox lots of flexibility. It's good to see some deals getting done early!

    Happy birthday Gencountyzeek !

    Happy Bday Zeke!
  9. Headed out to hunt with my best friend tomorrow. We are going to a piece of land where he killed a small doe today. He saw 5 other does and a really nice 8 point. I've never been there before, but the muzzleloader is clean and I have 2 tags. We'll see! On a related note, the GF asked me tonight if I was getting up "at the ass crack of dawn" to get over there. She also sort of asked if I was staying until I killed something. It wasn't really a question, more of a statement. 7 more days to get it done. Oh boy.

    Said goodbye to my best friend today

    So sorry for your loss Jdubs. 16 years is a good run, and still way too soon.

    Lost my oldest pup this morning.

    So sorry for your loss Mowin. They fill our hearts so full that they eventually break.

    Flying squill pics

    Sweet pics! I sometimes catch them at my bird feeder at night. The only time I've seen one in daylight was when I cut a huge maple with a hollow spot in it. They really are unique creatures.

    good to hear Saranac brewed a good beer for a change instead of their usual coyote whizz I still miss their black and tan.
