    Near miss truck transmission problem.

    Had something similar happen with my '06 Dodge Ram while driving on the NJ Turnpike. It was about 2 years old at the time. I pulled out to pass and when it hit 75mph downshifted to either first or second gear. It was like slamming on the brakes. Front of the truck nose dived, tires chirped. I just about crapped my pants. I pulled back into right lane let off gas and transmission shifted back up. Pulled into next rest area and shut off truck. Started back up and everything seemed to reset. Kept it under 70 the rest of way home and it was fine - until I got home. Go to take it to the dealer Monday morning. Shift into drive and it bogs down from the start like the transmission is stuck in 4th or 5th gear. Get it to the dealer and was told it was a bad solenoid in the transmission. They fixed it and haven't had any issues since. Still have the truck.

    Ten Point Poached Close To Our Property

    Grampy - That sucks. Glad they got the guy. Last week I came across this article. Also out by you.

    Said goodbye to my best friend today

    JDubs, I've clicked on this post a few times and have read all the replies, each time with a tear in my eye. I too had a yellow lab whose name was Jake. This past July we had to make the decision to put him down. Hardest thing I have had to do to end the life of my right hand man of 14 years. It sounds like your pup had similar issues as mine. Feel good that you did the right thing to end the suffering and he is in a better place. God bless. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  4. While sighting in this year my dad had a misfire with Winchester Deer season XP. The round was dimpled from firing pin but did not fire.

    Lost my oldest pup this morning.

    Had to put down our 14 year old lab last summer. It really sucks. They are a member of the family and it hurts like hell to let them go. Thoughts are with you.
  6. 125 acres myself, dad and two other guys hunt. All hardwods.

    Dick's Sporting Goods is taking a little dive

    Yup...I think it had more to do with the town planners than the area not being able to support the store. About the same time Dick's was expanding their Latham Farms store to include Field & Stream. Just speculating, but I'm sure Dick's didn't want the competition and were an established tax payer wanting to expand (and pay more taxes). Wouldn't be surprised if Cabela's would be asking for tax incentives to locate in the town. Locating behind the Times Union also would exacerbate an already terrible traffic situation at that end of Wolf Road - especially rush hour and holidays - probably something that was considered by the town.

    Dick's Sporting Goods is taking a little dive

    During my travels this week I shopped at the Cabela's in Buffalo and the Bass Pro in Utica. Both had same exact gear - especially clothing. It is a bummer to lose the selection that the competing stores offered.

    All of Big Ditch''s beers are good. I wish we could get them back here in Albany. I was really disappointed in the Southern Tier. For a double IPA it didn't have really any hop bitterness or flavor to speak of. It tastes old if that makes sense.

  13. ?? I have to ask what that is? Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  14. That was my point exactly. I think when deer notice anything out of the ordinary on their normal travel routes (sight or scent) they will adjust. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  15. So I see a bunch of posts "I wasn't in my stand that day and the buck I was waiting for showed up on camera the day I wasn't there!" Coincidence?? Maybe the deer are smarter than we think.... Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
