  1. Watched this covered on one of the hunting shows. The taxidermist had a shed with the beetles. The host of the show commented the stench was unbearable.
  2. My municipality used to be all plastic goes in the recycle bin. Which would lead one to believe all plastics are recyclable. Last year we received notice that only plastics marked 1 or 2 in the recycle triangle are recyclable and go in the bin. Considering that the numbering system went 1-5 and some plastics have no recycle triangle, I realized that most plastics are not recyclable. That being said, I won't stop doing my part recycling plastics numbered 1 & 2.

    Coyotes

    Same here. Hunting as a kid we heard of the Coydog and were told kill them. At that time DEC was adamant that coyotes do not kill deer although people had witnessed it. A later DNA study of NE coyotes found that none of them were purebred coyote and all had red wolf DNA. The red wolf DNA then explained their size (versus pure coyote) and hunting of deer in packs. In my opinion, these came down from Canada.
  4. Who knows? Scrap metal, garage ornament, the challenge, boredom, just because, etc. Years ago my wife and I were driving through a bad neighborhood. On top of the McDonald's was a giant blow up chicken to promote the chicken sandwich. I turned to my wife and said they are going to steal that chicken. She looked at me and replied why would anyone take that, what would they do with it? I told her just because it's there. Sure enough, the following week the local news was reporting that someone had stolen the chicken. These types of people view anything on public land as public property for the taking.
  5. That is certainly worse. This is/was basically the same as NYS pistol licensing agencies adding their own restrictions on top of the written law. You can and will be arrested for breaking a rule (not law) and then are at the mercy of the courts and if the prosecutor/judge/jury are judicial activists or judicial restrainists.
  6. Interesting too, is Bill Gates (I believe the Foundation), using experts have designed and developed a nuclear reactor that cannot melt down like Chernobyl and is basically failsafe. The intention was to bring electricity to underdeveloped nations. You know what country is 100% onboard with nuclear energy (and these reactors) to supply its future energy needs? China!!! The only thing US politicians are achieving is shortening the timeline for China to become the world's superpower.
  7. My understanding is this is the result of a Biden Executive Order; not the ATF acting autonomously.
  8. Let's dissect this commentary. Being a lifetime hunter sportsman is irrelevant to firearm ownership; you only need to be a US citizen. Further 2A, has nothing to do with hunting; it says "keep and bear" not "hunt". Your need or what you think is also irrelevant, regarding 2A right. A US citizen can choose to own an AR and high capacity magazines for no reason at all other than it being a right to own it. That is 2A, the only right that explicitly states "Shall not be infringed". The NRA is an organization that supports and defends that 2A right. Just like the ACLU defends all the others with the exception of 2A. You state "... it seems like I lose more rights as a sportsman hunter with everything Republicans do when it comes to gun legislation." Ask yourself, why does it seem that way to you when it is the Democrats that have instituted all the gun legislation that has caused loss of your rights?
  9. It appears UPS is enacting this policy on their own. This is not some State or Federal law requirement. I am not surprised at all given recent activities by Governors and AGs. I would think this policy is to provide some legal protection for if/when some state like NY or CA tries to also sue them for the "people violence using guns" in their cities.
  10. The technology has already existed for many years. In fact I recall, back then there was a game/deer farm in I beleive TX that had live streaming webcams on feeders. If you saw an animal you wanted, you logged-in, entered a credit card #, and it activated the weapons system to shoot it. Yeah, hunting became a video game. Sad.
  11. Do you feel the same way about organized groups like Antifa and BLM that did the same and worse, just not in the capital? Appreciate too that Jan 6th was not an organized group like Antifa & BLM; it was a bunch of DJT sycophants.
  12. Agree, I get the crud ring in my T/C Omega (with 777 pellets) no matter what.
  13. White House spokesman Andrew Bates said Saturday that Trump’s remarks are “anathema to the soul of our nation, and should be universally condemned.” “You cannot only love America when you win,” Bates said in a statement. “The American Constitution is a sacrosanct document that for over 200 years has guaranteed that freedom and the rule of law prevail in our great country. The Constitution brings the American people together – regardless of party – and elected leaders swear to uphold it. It’s the ultimate monument to all of the Americans who have given their lives to defeat self-serving despots that abused their power and trampled on fundamental rights.” I 100% agree with Bates, but find it 100% laughable coming from him and the Democratic administration in the WH since they don't adhere to it with 2A, other unconstitutional rules and laws, IRS, DOJ, FBI enforcement on Rs and not Ds, and pushing for an activist SCOTUS!
  14. Wow, that is the best/fanciest box blind I have ever seen!
  15. Has anyone ever experienced deer blowing and then settling down; not bolting? I never have. Foot stomping and head bobbing alone, I have had them settle down again, provided I remained motionless; but blowing they always end up bolting.
  16. Yes, and this is for any boot. Boots should fit snug enough so your foot does not slide up and down (blisters), but not tight to restrict circulation. You want enough room to be able to wiggle your toes and trap some air.
  17. They are the military cold weather boots. They are all rubber and have an air bladder to trap air for insulation/warmth. They do work and some folks love them....but Cons: They do not breath so your feet will sweat and be wet. If they tear (sharp rock) they no longer trap air (heat). The military does not buy the best equipment, they buy mediocre cost effective.
  18. I don't duck/goose hunt, so curious to know how you tell the difference between Canada geese from "up north" versus the ones that live on LI year round?
  19. I remember back when I was kid, F & S magazine had an illustrated readers tip section, and one "tip" was a hunter recommending putting out a battery AM/FM radio playing music. Claiming deer are curious and (cautiously) will come to see what new sound they are hearing.
  20. I have heard this is due to conditioning and associating the chainsaw sound with new browse from the greenery left behind.
  21. The gear has changed too. If your old enough, Woolrich Red & Black plaid jacket and pants, Red Ball rubber boots, Hot Seat, Kabar knife, sporterized WWII rifles, ....
  22. Perhaps she has become an ultra-conservative constitutionalist and believes 2A is only about muzzleloaders and "...shall not be infringed"!
  23. That was a great read! Thanks for sharing. My theory is he went to "that spot" twice being chased by coyotes where he successfully evaded them. The second time the coyotes did not kill him, but he died from some injury (perhaps a coyote wound). When he did die, the coyotes found him from the smell of decomposition. Also, to a deer a road is not a road, it is just an open area with hard ground.
  24. Used to hunt 3S. Only place I've ever seen 4 pointers like that (big 6 without brow tines). Suspect that it is some genetic trait being passed.
