  1. You and me both.. I can usually always get on the deer but this has been the worst year yet.. this is my 4rth day and havnt seen a deer yet..
  2. Nice! I've been admiring them for a bit , but said to myself " who in there right mind would spend over 3 grand on a crossbow" now I know.. Assuming you are in your right mind That should be a nice rig though, enjoy!
  3. We are in PA for the week and there are a lot of ticks. Except for 1 sit, in the rain, there have been ticks crawling on us. Nasty critters.
  4. Quite a few different ways to skin the cat.. Some diagonal wood braces let into the wall running at 45° from the bottom to top of wall,or if the inside is remaining unfinished attached to the inside(probably like it is now?) , sometimes a metal strap is used for the same purpose, sometimes installing 1 piece of plywood on each will suffice. Either way it's not likely to fall down I see places being built like this often..lol.. Purlins and board and batton alone aren't technically enough to resist the wall from moving though.
  5. Nice! Since they are using purlins and board&batten siding , make sure that they properly brace the walls.
  6. 2 spots I would check out. I like the northern one better , but I guess it would depend on wich way you come into the area from.
  7. Spot on! If I had to pin down a single day that is my favorite, it is Nov 10th. Close to every buck I've shot on that date were hot on a doe.. It's funny, because just the other day we were talking deer at work and I told the couple young guys that that was the magic day. One of them drags out his phone and shows me pictures of a beautiful 10 point he shot a couple years ago. He checks the date and it was 11/10. Lol.. mike drop
  8. Ha.ha.ha. I love my encore as well. But they are a bear to load after a shot or 2.. I've had to use a tree for an assist before.;)
  9. I concur.. I did it last year for the 1st time on an elk and it wasn't difficult.. I was just a little confused with the "bone it out" terminology.;)
  10. Do you take quarters, backstrap, and neck, etc..? Just like one would typically do with an elk? I assume not actually boneing it out?
  11. Tailgating is the one thing that really bothers me when driving. That and driving fast on the backroad I live on. If they draft me for a bit then pass when given the opportunity I give them a pass , otherwise I just start gradually slowing down until they finally pass . By being on my bumper they are raising mine and my passengers risks. There is no way they aren't hitting us if I have to stop quickly.
  12. I've watched way more deer, while having tags in my pocket, that I could have shot.. I have had years where deer are hard to come by and not many get a pass , but most years there are plenty of opportunities. It's more important for me to spend time in the woods "hunting" than shooting something then going home(besides all the work involved).. lol
  13. I think they sold the site , maybe even to Grouse.
  14. Ha.ha. No grumbling here.Just, throwing out my unsolicited opinion... I would have shot him all day long even if he weighed 125#s and was 10 years old..;)
