  1. 44 years-that can't be right but it's what the math shows-hunter safety class in 1977 when I was 14.
  2. Pa early muzzleloader- T/C Encore. Ny xbow- parker Centerfire XXT Ny/Pa rifle- Browning A-Bolt II stainless stalker.30-06, Browning A-Bolt II Hunter .243, Savage Model 14 in .250, Remington Model 7 7mm-08, Savage 99 in .308-depending on the weather and my mood. Ny Muzzleloader- the Encore. Pa late Archery- Parker crossbow.
  3. Thanks for the replies. I've had great luck growing rye and wheat on bare ground. I planted 1/2 acre of brassica with conventional tillage and 1/2acre no-till July 23rd. I think the no-till actually germinated better than the other. Based on your comments, I certainty think it's worth buying a few hundred pounds of rye seed to add to the clover. Thanks.
  4. I have 3 clover fields. I'd like to plant some rye or wheat into them this fall. Has anyone had any luck with broadcasting seed, mowing, and cultipacking? I planted some brassicas into a field last Friday that had last year's winter wheat standing by using the same process, using glysophate first, and have excellent germination. I am wondering if the same method, minus the glysophate-don't want to kill the clover- would work on cereal grains? I know I usually broadcast rye and wheat into worked soil, and drag to get them covered with soil. Any thoughts?
  5. I went more than 20 years ago. It was more of a fair than a logging show-nothing like Boonville if you are firewood/chainsaw/equipment junkie like me.
  6. That's encouraging. I plan to try a no-till half-acre this weekend. I have killed off the winter wheat, plan to seed, mow, and culti-pack. I have a half acre right beside it I will do conventional tillage on. It will be an interesting comparison. I'll be planting a mix of radish, turnip, and perennial clover.
  7. My nephew got a summer job in a local warehouse. He's a college student home for the summer. He works 8am-noon, M-F, started at $14 an hour and they increased their minimum wage to $16 an hour 3 weeks after he started. I remember looking for summer work when home from college in the early 1980's. Almost every business had a sign up "no summer jobs." I ended up reconditioning cars and being a general laborer at a car auction for whatever the minimum wage was-I think $3.35-and worked Saturday mornings as well as 40 hours M-F. I plan to retire next year and will be looking for something to stay busy and make some pocket cash. Hope jobs like his are still around.
  8. First squirrel and rabbit- 16 gauge Winchester 97. First woodchuck- Winchester 62a .22. First deer- Ithaca 37 12 gauge Deerslayer. First Grouse- Ithaca 37 16 gauge. First turkey- Ithaca 37 12 gauge. First coyote- Remington Model 7 7mm-08.
  9. You will love those! I had turnbuckles on my B 2620, got the telescoping ones on my L3560. That and the extendable lift arms make life easier.
  10. Another Smartwool fan here, although I may try out Darntough based on the good reviews.
  11. I have the Stihl saw and extension for my Kombi tool. Works well, don't use enough to justify a separate unit, but for $300 it was a worthwhile addition to the trimmer purchase.
  12. I took my on a rainy Sunday afternoon last summer just for the possibility of crossbow inclusion. Cost $30 and I sat through it while I watched a NASCAR race.
  13. Frost seeded an acre last Saturday. Kind of a maintenance seeding on a 4 year old plot.

    Reloading

    I have been loading since 1989. Can load .222, .223, .22-250, .243. .250 Savage, .25-06, .260, 7mm-08, .308, .30-06, and .357/.38.
  15. I have an idea for those who don't like winter. I have been thinking about buying a snow blower for my tractor and a snowmobile to play around on. If you would all send me some money, and I buy them, I guarantee they'll gather dust for the next 6 years!
