  1. For re-seasoning an old pan, pretty much this^^^ One step that I add is after step 2, I soak in a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water for an hour or so to neutralize the oven cleaner and it will also dissolve any rust the pan may have. As an alternate to the oven cleaner, you can mix up a jar of red devil drain cleaner with water in a 5 gallon bucket and let your pan soak in it for a few days. Regarding cleaning, most people will say to never use soap on your cast iron but I usually use a small amount with a plastic scrubby to wash out with no ill effects. Key is to dry right away after cleaning, get hot on the stove, and coat with a very LIGHT coating of oil. Wipe out with a clean towel completely - the sheen you see left by the oil is all you want.
  2. Thank you all for the birthday wishes!
  3. Through the years: 4H, 4B, 5R, 4C, 4S. Consistently only 4C for the past 15 years or so.
  4. Biggest disappointment was my dad wasn't able to hunt this year and I did not get to spend time in the woods with him. Also, didn't get to spend as much time in the woods as I would have liked due to family and work obligations. However I will say that watching my daughter in sports was as enjoyable as being in the woods, so I guess not really a disappointment.
  5. If hunting by myself, my dad, then my wife. If hunting with my dad, my wife.
  6. What Grampy said...this is a 3 shot group at 50 yards out of my Ruger American with the Federal Premium BT's
  7. Only got out 6 times during gun for a total of about 36 hours. Work and family obligations cut into my time in the woods quite a bit this year.
  8. Storm is over. They said 22.6 inches at Albany airport. I measured 25 on my deck.
  9. Daughter's school district is already closed for tomorrow here in the suburbs of Albany. Snowplow went through about an hour ago. Went out for the first snow blowing and there was about 6 inches and snowing heavy. Calling for 12 to 18 inches. More in the hills.
  10. Cold damp and breezy here. Woods pretty quiet as far as deer go. Saw a fork horn and single doe. Both before 7:30. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. Had same issue with some base layers I ordered online. Received an email saying order was cancelled with no explanation. I called them to ask why the order was cancelled. The woman I talked to was very helpful. She said that they were in stock and re-did the order for me, waived shipping for the inconvenience and they were on my doorstep two days later. It would be worth a try to give them a call.
