  1. My rule of thumb is, alkaline for above 32 degrees, lithium for below freezing. Alkaline batteries are water based and freeze. https://exodusoutdoorgear.com/blogs/news/83515846-the-science-of-trail-camera-batteries Pulled my cards over the weekend and need to look closely at them now.
  2. Maybe dig up a couple turnips here or there, and chop it open. Help give them the idea. The deer took to ours right away the first year.
  3. Checked out the food plots today. Looks like deer are back to munchin on the Whitetail institute oats. Still 50% green and we'll mowed off. They were hammering the tall tine turnips before snow. Seems to have slacked off and switched to the oats. Some turnips and winter greens we're eaten though, It's interesting to watch the progression of what's on the menu today.
  4. What's for dinner tonight?

    Just got back from camp, all that want recipe: We add seasoning and grated cheddar to the venison to taste before making the rings. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=bacon+wrapped+meat+filled+onion+rings&view=detail&mid=58718637BFFA4B5E875458718637BFFA4B5E8754&FORM=VRRTAP The fatty, same goes for the meat overlay and filling. Use what you like! http://www.smoking-meat.com/january-2010-bacon-wrapped-stuffed-sausage-fatty The way I see it, using the lean venison offsets the bacon fat! At least that's what I tell myself.
  5. What's for dinner tonight?

    I forget the canoli pie too. I couldn't eat another bite. Was good but probably not as good as Water Rats...
  6. What's for dinner tonight?

    Smoked a bacon wrapped venison sausage fatty. Stuffed with spinach, cheeses, mushrooms and onions. Bacon wrapped venison and onion rings.
  7. Misfires

    Get a Savage 10ML II load a factory approved load and misfires will be a thing of the past.
  8. Shoot damnit shoot, there might not be a bigger one.
  9. Kale?

    I planted kale last year. Seed from local agway, mixed it with rape, turnips radishes. It did well and was eaten early (bow season) before turnips. As an experiment I planted all whitetail institute products this year. I think they grew better and were hit harder. But was it because it is the second year with plots in the same area? Time will tell. I can say I'm sure that the buck on the bag clovers grew better than the no name stuff. Ladino from Agway and bucks a plenty clover seed from American seed were flops. Deer have been eating WI Winter Greens and tall tine turnips before frosted.

    I shoot one and love it. Many people were trying to "Improve" on the already speedy loads and in my opinion overcharging. Using duplex loads was another way to get blown up. I only shoot a factory recommended loading.
  11. T/C Encore with shotgun, muzzleloader, and rifle barrels.
  12. Jerky Makers

    I have made both sliced and extruded. Personal preference is for sliced.Google Alton Browns jerky recipe. We really like it. I've made a batch of it and a teriyaki batch so far. My son says his jaw hurts he eating so much of it! Next will be some bourbon jerky.
  13. My first food plot

    We had deer on camera eating tops from September on. After it frosted they started on the bulbs. They like the daikon radishes too, another reason to add some to the mix. I planted several whitetail institute products this year. Last year seed from Agway was a little disappointing. Biologic clover was really good, had deer bedding in it. I won't put in any power plant again, none of the sun hemp grew. No pods on the peas or beans. I have been buying seed direct from whitetail institute, get on the email list for sales. Just ordered Fusion @ buy 2 get 1 free. Also free shipping. They have ran the sales right along. Have most of what I need for next year already. Got to use the best plot seed I can to draw the deer over from Let Em Grow's.
  14. Muzzle loader blow up

    Was that fellow from Newark? Or is there 2 guys with the same affliction?
  15. My first food plot

    I planted about an acre of Tall Tines 3rd week of July. Grew great. One thing I did was added a 1/2# of daikon radishes to it for the area that hadn't been plotted before. They really break up the hard pan. Also have been incorporating pellet lime every year with a 3pt cone spreader. Bulk won't go through the cone. Wish I had access to a bulk spreader, its cheaper. Also planted Winter Greens, deer are using both.
