  1. He had such a wonderful voice and recorded some classic songs that will live on. I don't care about how much he weighed. His voice was much larger and will be always enjoyed. RIP Meatloaf and my condolences to your family. valoroutdoors.com.
  2. We are in for another round of below zero and dangerous wind chill temperatures the next couple of days. Everyone stay warm and stay safe. This is cabin fever weather for sure. valoroutdoors.com
  3. I shot this guy on New Years Day. The limit was 1 bird per day here. I breasted him out and brined the breasts for 2 days in the refrigerator. Then I made barbecue pulled goose in the slow cooker. Meat was delicious with absolutely no gamey taste. valoroutdoors.com
  4. Yes brine your mallard breasts for the same period of time. Again the secret is to remove all the blood from the breasts. You would be marinading them in your cranberry juice and pepper corn mix and that would be fine. You could marinade them in your favorite marinade. Brining will remove the blood and marinade will add whatever flavor you want to the meat. valoroutdoors.com
  5. Goose or duck breasts are delicious if properly prepared. First off you must brine them for 1-2 days in your refrigerator. Start out with a brine solution. Change the water frequently every 6-8 hours reducing the salt each time until you are using plain tap water. You want to remove all blood from the breasts. Then pat dry the breasts before cooking. My favorite easy slow cooker recipe for barbecue pulled goose is attached. It is absolutely delicious and very easy to make. valoroutdoors.com. https://blog.americanexpedition.us/bbq-pulled-goose-recipe/
  6. I hunt in the Western zone and duck season overlaps part of the early archery season and part of the regular firearms season for deer. One day this last October my son and I went duck hunting in the morning and bow hunting in the afternoon. We got a couple of ducks in the morning and my son shot a beautiful 8 point buck that afternoon. We called it a "duck and buck day." valoroutdoors.com
  7. I use Texas Rigs on my duck and geese floating decoys. The heavy mono line has a clip that attaches to the keel of the decoy and has a sliding egg sinker on the other end. You can wind the line on the keel and when you get to water you unwind the line and toss the decoys into the water. They usually have a loop at the clip end so you can pick them up and drag a bunch of them through the water when you walk in or out. valoroutdoors.com.
  8. This article should answer your questions. Mine have done the same. You have condensation on the inside of the panes which has frozen. valoroutdoors.com. https://www.4feldco.com/articles/windows-leaking/
  9. I woke up this morning to a temperature of -5 degrees with a wild chill of -18 degrees. It doesn't take long to get frostbite in these conditions. Be careful if you go outdoors. Cover all exposed skin and dress in warm layers. Stay safe. valoroutdoors.com https://www.almanac.com/windchill-chart-united-states
  10. Showing my age here Bill. I remember hearing this song playing over and over on the jukebox in the student union when I was a senior at Buffalo State College in 1972-1973. I'll bet a lot of members here will have to Google jukebox to figure out what it is. Lol. It is a great song and Carly has a great voice. valoroutdoors.com
  11. Wishing all the best for your wife and your family. valoroutdoors.com
  12. My son (and I) are looking for a small used enclosed trailer to be used for storing and transporting goose and duck decoys. A single axle aluminum trailer would suit our needs. I have some feelers out for one and figured I would post on here in the event someone has one near us for sale. We live in the Auburn area and do not want to travel far for one. I have been checking Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace for one but cannot find one nearby that we would be interested in. PM me if you have any offers. valoroutdoors.com
  13. Zippo makes one that is almost identical to yours. The attached video link shows you how to light it. Be sure the metal wick is glowing red hot before you put the top on. valoroutdoors.com https://www.zippo.com/pages/how-to-ignite-your-zippo-hand-warmer
  14. My late father used them for ice fishing and duck hunting. I inherited them from him. They do get very hot and will burn all day plus when full of fuel. Use a quality fuel like Zippo lighter fluid to cut down on some of the smell. If you put one inside a hardwarmer muff it will get so hot inside that you don't want to grab it if you reach in with your bare hands. They get much hotter than the chemical handwarmers so be cautious. valoroutdoors.com
  15. The way to get maximum years out of your atv battery is to keep it on a battery tender Jr. when it is not in use. In addition to getting long life out of your battery you will always have a fully charged battery everytime you start up. I got 7 years out of my last battery and only changed it to be safe. valoroutdoors.com. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Deltran-Battery-Tender-Junior-12V-750mA-Charger/15779492
